UPDATE (September 3): the plans below have been confirmed by WB, with info on the runtime of the online trailer also revealed by Germany’s FSK.
The 1 minute 37 second long teaser trailer has started to arrive at cinemas in Canada, with Inside The Film Room getting to see the footage – which is said to be exclusive to screenings of Tenet, announcing a (likely separate) full-length trailer, set to run just over 3 minutes, arriving online on Wednesday, September 9. Bootleg images of the teaser are also making their way through social media today. If you’re seeing Christopher Nolan’s latest, let us know if you get to see this sneak peek…do however bear in mind that there are reports of the footage not playing until August 31, which is when the first screenings of Tenet in the United States begin.
Original post follows:
This time, this should be for real. After skipping out the international 10th Anniversary re-release of Inception, our long-awaited debut look at Denis Villeneuve’s Dune is – at bloody last – ready to be released to the public (there have been reports of some press already seeing it). The first trailer for the Frank Herbert adaptation has been rated today by the Quebec Ratings Board – in time for the Canadian release of Tenet on August 27.
We expect the trailer to finally arrive online some time in the next 7 days, if not any day now: the first public screenings of Christopher Nolan’s latest begin in Australia, New Zealand and Sweden this Saturday, with the wider international release on August 26. The trailer being rated now, though this is speculation on our part, could also mean it might end up playing with the Inception re-release in the U.S. from this Friday, August 21. However, with a succession of new looks at Tenet and Wonder Woman 1984 (and more from DC FanDome) due to land this Friday and Saturday respectively, we probably wouldn’t expect it this weekend specifically. As always, we’ll have more info on here as it comes in.
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.
Starring Timothée Chalamet, Rebecca Ferguson, Oscar Isaac, Josh Brolin, Stellan Skarsgård, Dave Bautista, Stephen McKinley Henderson, Zendaya, David Dastmalchian, Chang Chen, Sharon Duncan-Brewster, Charlotte Rampling, Jason Momoa and Javier Bardem, the film is currently set for theatrical release on December 18 in the U.S. and the UK.
