WATCH: The Trailer For Dune Is Finally Here And It's Sci-Fi On An Epic Level

Even if 2020 was a normal year in terms of cinematic releases, it's very unlikely that any other film would have been able to rival Dune in terms of A-list billing and its first trailer is a little bit special.

Ok, so who's in Denis Villeneuve's sci-fi epic, you may ask?

How about Timothée Chalamet as young antihero Paul Atreides. Oscar Isaac as Duke Leto, Rebecca Ferguson as Lady Jessica, Josh Brolin as Gurney Halleck, Zendaya as Chani, Javier Bardem as Stilgar, and Jason Momoa as Duncan Idaho.

There's also Stellan Skarsgård, Dave Bautista, Stephen McKinley Henderson, and Chang Chen in the mix too.

Yeah, that's pretty good!

After Arrival and Blade Runner 2049, director Villeneuve isn't slowing down with the sci-fi blockbusters and it's arguable that Dune is his most ambitious project yet.

In terms of the plot, the story revolves around Paul Atreides (Chalamet) who grows up in an aristocratic family on the planet of Caladan. But when Paul's father Duke Leto Atreides (Isaac) accepts the job of supervising the dangerous desert planet Arrakis (known as Dune), everything changes in Paul's life.

As for the official synopsis, film fans can expect: "A mythic and emotionally charged hero's journey, Dune tells the story of Paul Atreides, a brilliant and gifted young man born into a great destiny beyond his understanding, who must travel to the most dangerous planet in the universe to ensure the future of his family and his people.

"As 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."

David Lynch famously directed an adaptation of Frank Herbert's novel - he wrote six in the series - and there were also a few miniseries made.

However, we've a feeling that Villeneuve is going to absolutely nail this one and yes, there are worms.

All will be revealed when Dune is released on December 18.

In the meantime, here's the Dune trailer for you to enjoy.
