Dune (titled onscreen as Dune: Part One) is a 2021 American epic science fiction film directed by Denis Villeneuve. It is the first of a two-part adaptation of the 1965 novel of the same name by Frank Herbert. Set in the distant future, the film follows Paul Atreides as his family, the noble House Atreides, is thrust into a war for the deadly and inhospitable desert planet Arrakis. The ensemble cast includes Timothée Chalamet, Rebecca Ferguson, Oscar Isaac and Zendaya. The film was nominated for ten awards at the 94th Academy Awards including Best Picture, winning six, and received numerous other accolades. It has been widely considered as one of the best science-fiction films of the 2020s and of the 21st century. A direct sequel, Dune: Part Two, is set to be released on November 3, 2023.
