Dune is considered to be one of the best science fiction series of all time. Written by Frank Herbert, in 1965, the first book in this series was originally turned into a film in 1984.
Set in another galaxy in the future, Dune follows the Atreides family who were previously the rulers of the ocean planet, Caladan. The movie starts with Duke Leto, Paul's father, who receives an assignment from the Imperial Emperor to relocate Arrakis - Dune - a dangerous desert planet with a valuable and rare natural resource called Spice. The assignment to Arakis is a trap for the Atreides family, who are targeted by the ruthless Harkonnens. The Harkonnens have left behind many traps and traitors on the water starved planet.
Paul, the son of Duke Leto and Lady Jessica, has been trained by his mother in the Bene Gesserit ways, which is a special order.
The natives of Arrakis, the fremen believe in a prophecy that one day a special ruler (the Muad'Dib) will come to free them. After the death of his father, the Duke Leto, Paul and Lady Jessica must fight for their lives and avenge their family.
Will the prophecy come true? Will Paul turn out to be the Muad’Dib, uniting with the Fremen and defeating the evil Harkonnens on this inhospitable desert planet, where four hundred metre long sandworms devour ships and anyone who is lost in the vast desert.
