Although we’re still waiting to see a teaser trailer, this week Vanity Fair has unveiled the official first look at Denis Villeneuve’s Dune through a gallery of photos. The movie is an adaptation of Frank Herbert’s classic sci-fi novel and it features a huge cast that includes Timothée Chalamet, Zendaya, Oscar Isaac, Jason Momoa, Josh Brolin, Rebecca Ferguson, Javier Bardem, Dave Bautista, Charlotte Rampling and Stellan Skarsgård. Set on the desert planet of Arrakis, the story revolves around two families vying for control of the planet and its most valuable resource, a mind-enhancing drug called “the spice”. It is not necessarily mainstream blockbuster material, but if anyone can mine both the artistic and commercial potential of this project, it is probably Denis Villeneuve. Dune hits theatres on Dec. 18th; check out the images after the jump and let us know what you think.

    Some of the armor looking suits reminds me of the Krypton scenes in Man of Steel.
