Actor Timothee Chalamet stars as Paul Atreides in Denis Villeneuve’s Dune. The first look is out and it is quite intriguing as Paul is seen on his native planet of Caladan.
Vanity Fair shared the first look on April 13. Timothee Chalamet told the magazine, “The immediately appealing thing about Paul was the fact that in a story of such detail and scale and world-building, the protagonist is on an anti-hero’s-journey of sorts.”
“He thinks he’s going to be sort of a young general studying his father and his leadership of a fighting force before he comes of age, hopefully a decade later, or something like that.” Chalamet further told Vanity Fair.
