The script for the epic science fiction film Dune: Part One was written by Denis Villeneuve, Jon Spaihts, and Eric Roth. It is one of two adaptations of Frank Herbert’s 1965 novel, with fundamental importance in the book’s first half. The film, which takes place in the far future, follows Paul Atreides as his illustrious family, the House Atreides, becomes embroiled in a fight over the harsh and dangerous bare asteroid Arrakis. The ensemble cast includes Sharon Duncan-Brewster, Chang Chen, Timothée Chalamet, Rebecca Ferguson, Oscar Isaac, Josh Brolin, Stellan Skarsgard, Dave Bautista, Stephen McKinley Henderson, Zendaya, David Dastmalchian, Charlotte Rampling, Jason Momoa, and Javier Bardem.

LET’S DISCOVER THE PLOT OF DUNE
In humanity’s distant future, Duke Leto Atreides accepts control of the dangerous bare asteroid Arrakis, the only location of the most valuable chemical in the cosmos, “the spice,” an item that increases mental speed and lengthens life. Leto travels to Arrakis, commonly called Dune, with his Bene Gesserit concubine Lady Jessica, newborn boy and heir Paul, and nearest consultant, despite knowing that this is a cunning trap laid by his adversaries, the Harkonnens. Leto presumes the order of the dangerous spice mining business, surrounded by huge sandworms. Paul and Jessica are introduced to the Fremen, Arrakian inhabitants who live in the vast desert due to a painful betrayal.
LET’S HAVE A LOOK AT THE FILMING LOCATIONS OF DUNE
On March 18, 2019, filming at the Origo Film Studios in Budapest, Hungary, as well as in Wadi Rum, Jordan, got underway. Filming for the movie’s opening scene, which takes place on the planet Caladan, took place in Stadlandet, Norway. Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, which served as the primary setting for the planet Arrakis, was also used in the film. The first phase of shooting was finished in July 2019. Budapest anchored more movie scenes in August 2020, but it is not anticipated that this will affect the movie’s release schedule. The film is shot in IMAX format using an Arri Alexa LF camera and an Alexa Mini LF prototype that have received the certification. These cameras are outfitted with Panavision’s Ultra Vista and H-series large-format lenses.
