Dune First Peek

Today Vanity Fair has shared this, our very first look at our twink wunderkind Timothee Chalamet in Denis Villenueve's adaptation of Dune. There will be lots more tomorrow they say, but appropriately perhaps on this very rainy morning here in NYC, they give us this somber gray image to hold us until then. 

The piece alongside this photo at VF explains this is Paul Atreides (Chalamet) still on his watery home planet of Caladan -- those things that look like newspapers blowing around in the breeze in the background are actually transportation spaceships that will carry him away from home and take him to Arrakis, the desert-world that we all think of when we think of Dune.

A closer look at Timmy's outfit -- I like the look, although I feel as if this image, set so early in the story, isn't giving us a full picture of what Villenueve & Co will have in store and we should not get too attached to what we are seeing. Tomorrow's second part of VF's preview of the movie will really set tone for our expectations on the tale. Anyway they say the movie is still coming out on December 18th, so that's good. But now we just wait for tomorrow, which we've gotten real good at over the past month...

It’s Denis’s an auto-watch.
