A new full trailer for 2021's Dune has been released, with  details about the major characters and the worldbuilding in the classic science fiction space opera.

The trailer provides a brief look at the reigning head of House Atreides, Duke Leto Atreides (Oscar Isaac), in the middle of major political and military intrigue.

The story then progresses to the training of Paul under Duncan Idaho (Jason Momoa).

The iconic sandworms that populate Arrakis have newer designs, particularly with their inner teeth and skin texture.

The suits used by the Fremen warriors are of particular interest, as these have been given a more Iron Man-style, power armor look.

Dune was pushed back from its original production and release of December 2020 due to the global Coronavirus pandemic.

Another reason for the delay is director Villeneuve’s resistance to making the film only available as an HBO Max exclusive.
