Warner Bros. has unveiled explosive footage from Denis Villeneuve’s science-fiction thriller starring Timothee Chalamet, Rebecca Ferguson, Zendaya, Jason Momoa, and a lot of spell-binding scenes.The trailer offers a look into magnificent production design, out of this world action, fabulous costumes of the cast, along with everything else that Villeneuve has used to make his world of Dune, which is augmented by the music given by master composer Hans Zimmer.He always had this day-dream of adapting Frank Herbert’s novel since the time he was a teenager, and now cinema giant Warner Bros. along with Legendary, have given him a pedestal to mount his vision of utmost cinematic grandeur.The footage shown in the trailer, along with its music that adds a sense of emotional feel to it, can put any science fiction film to shame.Academy Award-nominated film Call Me by Your Name had given exposure in Hollywood to actor Timothee Chalamet who eventually found his way to star in Dennis Villeneuve’s Dune playing the protagonist Paul Atreides, descendent of a family that takes control over a minacious desert planet called Arrakis.In particular, Timothee Chalamet as Paul Atreides and Zendaya will occupy center stage surrounded by a stellar supporting cast of Rebecca Ferguson, Jason Momoa, Oscar Isaac, Josh Brolin, No Country for Old Men star Javier Bardem, Dave Bautista, and Charlotte Rampling.Dune is the latest name that has been added to the list of science fiction films made by Denis Villeneuve, who looks to have launched an incursion into the genre.It is expected that both films could very well make their way to the best sci-fi films of the 21st century.It looks the duo has given a lot of time in the project as “Dune” is expected to be a visceral exaltation akin to the pedigrees achieved by 2018 DC tentpole Aquaman which was in itself a stupendous cinematographic effort.It is an undisputed fact and imperative to be kept in mind while reviewing the film in the future that Dune is a very difficult venture if not an impossible venture.
With the sci-fi remake well on the way, here's what we know about the Dune release date, cast, and more.

On 23 July 2010, five lads were thrown together during filming of The X Factor’s bootcamp stage to form a band.No one – not even Simon Cowell – could have predicted what would happen next, as Harry Styles, Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Louis Tomlinson and Liam Payne went from talent show hopefuls to worldwide pop sensations One Direction.  Despite not winning the series, the group became the most successful act The X Factor ever spawned, with their global popularity further cementing the show’s significance in the pop culture landscape. As 1D celebrate their 10th anniversary, we’re rewinding back to 2010 with a closer look at where it all started for them, reliving the heydays of The X Factor’s seventh series. In 2010, X Factor’s popularity was at its absolute peakAs viewers, we were hooked on the talent show, with nearly 14 million of us tuning in each week – a ratings record for the show that was never beaten in later series.  It was the third consecutive year that the panel was the sameSimon Cowell, Cheryl (then) Cole, Louis Walsh and Dannii Minogue were once again the judges, but Dannii was missing from the auditions and bootcamp stages, as she was on maternity leave, pregnant with her son Ethan with then-boyfriend Kris Smith. With Dannii absent, it was up to a whole host of guest judges to fill in for herGeri Halliwell was first up in Glasgow, with Natalie Imburgulia joining in Birmingham, Katy Perry in Dublin, Pixie Lott in Cardiff and Nicole Scherzinger in Manchester. Simon, Cheryl and Louis took on the London auditions as a threesome. The 2010 series was making headlines before it was even on air During filming of auditions in Cardiff, Cheryl was taken ill and was later diagnosed with Malaria. Cheryl contracted the disease on a trip to Tanzania, on the east coast of Africa, with rumoured then boyfriend Derek Hough. Cheryl spent four days in intensive care at London’s Cromwell hospital, before being moved to a respite ward for another week. In the meantime, auditions in Manchester went ahead without her.Those auditions served as Nicole’s first appearance on the panelWith Cheryl still too sick to judge Bootcamp, the former Pussycat Doll filled in for her during filming there too. This stint on the show led to Nicole being announced as a co-host of the new US version of the show in 2011, alongside Steve Jones. However, when Cheryl was dropped from the US panel after just a few days of filming Stateside, Nicole moved into her seat, prompting years of reports of a feud between the pair.Nicole also took up a permanent position on the UK panel, serving as a judge on and off between 2012 and 2019.As the auditions began airing in the August of 2010, viewers fell in love with many contestants. Gamu Nhengu’s audition marked her out as an early favourite (more on her later)... While Katie Waissel’s performance made her one to watch – albeit not necessarily for her singing...  A certain Liam Payne returned to audition two years after making it through to Judges Houses’, impressing with his rendition of Feelin’ Good... And four other lads by the names of Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Niall Horan and Zayn Malik also tried their luck… A 16-year-old Cheryl look-a-like by the name of Cher Lloyd was told she was “right up my street” by her idol… While no-one could have predicted what happened next when best friends Abi and Lisa took to the stage to perform a tuneless rendition of That’s My Goal“She punched her in the face!” However, the show faced accusations that it had exploited one contestantShirlena Johnson was later asked to leave the show because of concerns over her mental health. Producers said the medical report from her general practitioner, requested during bootcamp, arrived late. Viewers also picked up on the fact some contestants’ auditions appeared to have been auto-tunedX Factor bosses later admitted to using vocal enhancement processes. A spokesperson said at the time: “The judges make their decisions at the auditions stage based on what they hear on the day, live in the arena. The footage and sound is then edited and dubbed into a finished programme, to deliver the most entertaining experience possible for viewers.”Bootcamp saw former judge turned creative director Brian Freidman put the contestants through their pacesWhile some rose to the challenge, others struggled with his choreography. Zayn Malik in particular had an aversion to dancing, and walked out of one class, not wanting to throw any more shapes... During bootcamp, it was Nicole who suggested raising the age of the Overs category from 25 to 28, as she believed there was so much talent in the older group. But that wasn’t the only ingenious suggestion Nicole had. After a number of contestants were sent home in Boys and Girls category, she suggested forming a new boyband and a new girlband out of them. For the girls, Geneva Lane, Rebecca Creighton, Esther Campbell and Sophia Wardman were selected to form a band who later became known as Belle Ami, while Liam Payne, Zayn Malik, Niall Horan, Louis Tomlinson and Harry Styles were picked as the boyband. No prizes for guessing what they later became known as. Both Dannii and Cheryl staged triumphant returns to the show as it reached its Judges’ Houses stageThe Boys were flown off to meet Dannii in Melbourne, where she was joined by guest judge Natalie Imburglia, while Cheryl stayed closer to home following her health scare, as she and will.i.am hosted the Girls at Coworth Park in Berkshire. Meanwhile, Louis was joined by former judge Sharon Osbourne in County Limerick in Ireland.Simon’s judges’ houses in Marbella, saw him joined once again by SinittaBecause, who else?There were plenty of memorable performances at Judges HousesOne Direction took on Natalie Imbruglia’s Torn and went from cobbled-together group to serious contenders. They later performed this song again in the live final, prior to being eliminated.  Wagner took on Florence + The Machine... While Treyc Cohen and Cheryl’s ‘readiness’ earned a parody on Harry Hill’s TV Burp… But like most things with The X Factor, there was controversy when Cheryl did not pick Gamu as one of her final four actsDespite Gamu giving an impressive performance, Cheryl instead picked divisive contestant Katie Waisel along with Cher Lloyd, who had messed up her audition. The subsequent media storm became known as Gamu-gate, with around 1,000 people complaining to ITV, and over 200,000 joined a Facebook page called Gamu Should Have Got Through. Cheryl was also reported to have received death threats over her decision to send Gamu home. After Judges Houses, the final 12 were...Aiden Grimshaw, Matt Cardle, Nicola Festa, Rebecca Ferguson, Cher Lloyd, Katie Waissel, John Adeleye, Mary Byrne, Storm Lee, One Direction, Belle Ami and F.Y.D. However, there was a surprise in store, the introduction of a wildcard twistThis meant that four previously axed contestants returned to the competition. They were: Paije Richardson, Treyc Cohen, Wagner and Diva Fever. Throughout the live shows, there were some absolutely iconic performances. Wagner singing Love Shack has stayed very much with us for the last 10 years…  As did Rebecca Ferguson’s dance version of Sweet Dreams…  And Cher Lloyd doing Shakespeare’s Sister’s Stay With Me… Then there was Aiden Grimshaw doing Mad World…  One Direction doing Something About The Way You Look Tonight was also A Moment... As was Matt Cardle singing First Time Ever I Saw Your Face… Having failed to endear herself to the British public, Katie Waissel was a constant presence in the bottom twoAfter landing in the bottom for the third time, things got the better of her during a performance of Please Don’t Give Up On Me, as she sat on the floor and proclaimed “oh, sod it”.  After her fourth time singing for survival, she underwent a dramatic transformation in the hope of inventing herself…And while she was safe the following week, she was finally axed from the competition in week eight thanks to a double elimination There was an infamous showdown between Cheryl and WagnerCheryl was less than impressed with comments Wagner had made about her upbringing during a press interview, and made sure he knew exactly what she thought during a live show.  Cheryl also found herself at the centre of controversy during week five of the competitionAfter two of her acts – Treyc Cohen and Katie Waissel – landed in the bottom two, Cheryl abstained from voting, and therefore the result had to be decided by a majority vote.  The move was criticised by many, who claimed Cheryl was paid in her role as a judge to make difficult decisions, while there were also allegations that the show was fixed to save Katie, which were vehemently denied by The X Factor.Over on The Xtra Factor, Konnie Huq’s time as host didn’t go completely to planAfter succeeding Holly Willoughby, the former Blue Peter presenter made a number of gaffes during her one series hosting the ITV2 spin-off show. The most memorable of which saw her tell all the finalists that they would get to go on tour, only to have to backpedal after realising it would only be the top eight contestants. She also royally annoyed Dannii live on the show... There were some incredible guest performers during the series, most notably Lady Gaga doing Bad Romance in a bathtub dressed as a bat… Cheryl took the the stage to showcase Promise This… Rihanna had a full-on food fight as she performed Only Girl In The World... Jamiroquai had a less than warm reception from Cheryl and DanniiFrontman J Kay had made some comments about them in the press during the week prior to the band’s performance, which led to the pair refusing to applaud.  Nicole Scherzinger gave us this iconic performance of Poison (which is still a 10/10 banger and deserved better)... The cast of Glee performed Don’t Stop Believin’ during the semi-final... When the final rolled round, it was Matt, Rebecca, One Direction and Cher who vied to win the showDuring the famous duets, Matt Cardle teamed up with none other than RihannaIt was a performance that rivalled Alexandra Burke’s duet with Beyoncé, as many viewers noted the electric chemistry between Matt and Rihanna.  In fact, over 2,800 complaints were made to TV watchdog Ofcom over performances in the finale, which also saw Christina Aguilera perform Express from the Burlesque soundtrack. Christina also duetted with Rebecca Ferguson on Beautiful…  While One Direction teamed up with Robbie on She’s The One... And Cher Lloyd got to perform with Black Eyed Peas’ will.i.am on a mash-up of Where Is The Love? and I Got A Feeling... After an incredible final, it was Matt who was crowned the winnerIt was also the second win for his mentor Dannii. Rebecca finished as runner-up, with One Direction in third place, and Cher fourth.  Matt’s winner’s single was a cover of Biffy Clyro’s When We CollideIt charted at number one and managed to stay there the following week to be crowned Christmas number one. But the final moments of the series were remembered for a very different reason This was thanks to Harry Styles whispering “just think about how much....” (we’ll let all you lip-readers fill in the blanks) in Matt’s ear, which was caught on camera.

And while that may be your first reaction when you think about Doctor Sleep, a sequel to both Stephen King and Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining, check that sentiment right now.You know, the young boy from The Shining whose father, Jack, went crazy with an ax in the Overlook Hotel.In subsequent years though, two things happened: Kubrick’s film got way more famous than the book it was based upon and King wrote a sequel novel, called Doctor Sleep.Flanagan (who recently had a huge hit with Netflix’s The Haunting of Hill House and has a long history with horror) decided to take King’s book and twist it just enough so it stays true to the source material, but also satisfies fans of the film.Much like his father, Danny is now a violent alcoholic, and it’s not until he hits rock bottom and moves to New Hampshire to straighten out his life that he can begin to deal with the demons that have haunted him since he was a child.First is that of Abra, played by newcomer Kyliegh Curran.
Doctor Sleep, Mike Flanagan’s adaptation of Stephen King’s sequel novel to The Shining, has an impossibly high pedigree to live up to in the form of Kubrick’s The Shining adaptation, one of the best horror films ever made.It’s been a great yr for Stephen King adaptations but I think DoctorSleep is the best of the bunch.What a wonderful celebration of Kubrick, King & @flanaganfilm’s career as well.— Heatherface Wixson (@thehorrorchick) October 25, 2019As a huge fan of Kubrick's The Shining, King's books & Mike Flanagan, I'm giddy that Doctor Sleep is seriously GREAT.Fans of TheShining are really gonna love DoctorSleep.
After seeing Tessa Thompson and Chris Hemsworth pop off the screen in Thor: Ragnarok and Avengers: Endgame, the prospect of them pairing up to protect the Earth from the scum of the universe is exciting.Unfortunately, this Men in Black spinoff from Fate of the Furious and Straight Outta Compton director F. Gary Gray doesn't live up to its potential due to shallow characters and a weak script.The film opens Thursday in Australia and comes to the US and UK on Friday.Things kick off promisingly enough, with alien policing MiB Agents H (Hemsworth) and High T (Liam Neeson) engaging in an energetic mission on the Eiffel Tower, and Neeson bringing his usual growling gravitas.We jump several years into the future and are reintroduced to the MiB's supersecret world via Thompson's Molly, who seeks out the organization after encountering an alien as a kid.She essentially fills the same role Will Smith did in the fondly remembered 1997 original, quickly getting recruited as Agent M. There's plenty of spark in her conversation with Emma Thompson's O, but that doesn't continue when she's partnered with the roguish H at the agency's London office.
You could watch some of the best fantasy and action TV shows already available, or you could go back to George R.R.Martin's novels when he gets round to completing the Song of Ice and Fire series that inspired HBO's smash hit.Luckily there's no shortage of epic fantasy, sci-fi and thriller books being adapted into movies and TV shows in the coming months and years.From beloved classics to contemporary best-sellers, these are some of the adaptations that will challenge Game of Thrones' crown to become your new obsession.In the far future of humanity, Duke Leto Atreides and his son Paul battle over life-giving spice with the venal Baron Harkonnen on the desert world of Arrakis.After reimagining Blade Runner 2049, acclaimed director Denis Villeneuve takes on another sci-fi classic with the help of a galaxy of stars: Timothée Chalamet, Rebecca Ferguson, Oscar Isaac, Josh Brolin, Zendaya, Jason Momoa and Javier Bardem are among those involved.

If I were 10 years old, The Kid Who Would Be King would be my favourite movie.I’d watch it every day, twice on Sunday, run wild with a fake sword, and pretend to save the world with my friends.As an adult, the film didn’t have quite that impact on me but it’s easy to recognize its earnest joyfulness that taps into those childlike feelings.He famously directed 2011's Attack the Block, one of the best sci-fi films in recent memory (officially, as decided by us.)That’s a whole other issue but at the start, the movie does feel like the work of a super talented filmmaker who had to shake off some rust before really returning to form.To that end, events in The Kid Who Would Be King get off to a slow, rocky start.
Welcome back to another installment of The Monitor, WIRED's roundup of the latest in the world of culture.In today’s installment: Jeff Bezos' divorce will likely impact Amazon; the forthcoming Dune film is spicing up its cast; and Lady Gaga's streaming catalog is losing one of her most controversial hits.Amazon honcho Jeff Bezos stands to lose millions of shares of company stock during his pending divorce, according to a Business Insider report.The company founder—who recently announced he was parting ways with his wife MacKenzie Bezos after 25 years—owns about 16 percent of Amazon's shares.Under Washington state law, BI notes, MacKenzie could be eligible to collect half of those shares, which make up a sizable chunk of the couples' estimated net worth of $137 billion.Not long after Jeff Bezos tweeted the news of the couple’s breakup, The National Enquirer published the results of a four-month-long investigation into the Amazon exec's alleged relationship with news anchor and pilot Lauren Sanchez, which the tabloid claimed involved "raunchy messages and erotic selfies."
