Park City Film showcasing Dune this weekend

PARK CITY, Utah — Starting on Friday, November 12, Park City Film will be showing the new remake of Frank Herbert’s science fiction world of Dune.

They will have three evening showings through Sunday, November 14, at Jim Santy Auditorium at the Park City Library.

Originally written as a novel by Herbert published in 1965, David Lynch directed a film version released in 1984.

This year’s version, starring Timothee Chalamet and Zendaya, is directed by Denis Villeneuve, whose former works include Blade Runner 2049, Sicario, and Arrival.

A sequel has already been announced, with an October 2023 release date. The film grossed $41 million in its opening weekend, a pandemic record for Warner Bros.

The story centers on Paul Atreides (Chalamet), a brilliant and gifted young man born into a great destiny beyond his understanding, who must travel to the planet of Arrakis to ensure the future of his family and his people. As malevolent forces explode into conflict over Arrakis’ exclusive supply of the drug Spice — a commodity capable of unlocking humanity’s greatest potential — only those who can conquer their fear will survive.
