The Sheffield culture guide written by in-the-know locals

This adaptation of Frank Herbert's landmark 1965 sci-fi novel is one of the most anticipated films of 2021.

Dune has been notoriously difficult to bring to the big screen. Alejandro Jodorowksy and Ridley Scott both abandoned their versions, while David Lynch’s 1984 Dune became a cult-classic. Now it's the turn of Dennis Villeneuve, director of Arrival (2016) and Blade Runner 2049 (2017).

Dune is the story of Paul Atreides, a gifted young man who must travel to the most dangerous planet in the universe to ensure the future of his family and his people. Malevolent forces explode into conflict over the planet's exclusive supply of the most precious resource in existence – a commodity capable of unlocking humanity's greatest potential. Only those who can conquer their fear will survive.

Starring Timothée Chalamet, Zendaya, Rebecca Ferguson, Jason Momoa and Oscar Isaac.
