Spice is the most valuable substance in the universe, expanding consciousness and extending life, and the Atreides’ bitter ancestral enemies, House Harkonnen, will not let it go without a fight. And in the deep desert, amid the gargantuan Sand Worms, dwell the mysterious tribes of the Fremen…The starry cast includes Oscar Isaac, Rebecca Ferguson, Josh Brolin, Jason Momoa, Stellan Skarsgard, Dave Bautista, Javier Bardem and Zendaya.
