EW’s roundtable with the cast, filmed at the Venice Film Festival and hosted by Cynthia Erivo, touched on many elements of the new sci-fi film.
Entertainment Weekly – Dune is finally on the way later this month. Director Denis Villeneuve’s adaptation of Frank Herbert’s classic 1965 science-fiction novel comes to theaters and HBO Max on Oct. 22, but most of it was filmed way back in 2019, before the COVID-19 pandemic. So when EW assembled most of the stars — Timothée Chalamet, Zendaya, Rebecca Ferguson, Oscar Isaac, Josh Brolin, Javier Bardem, Dave Bautista, Sharon Duncan-Brewster, and Stellan Skarsgård — at the Venice Film Festival in September, it was the first time so many of them had been in the same place since shooting wrapped.
The roundtable, which you can watch above, was hosted by Cynthia Erivo (Harriet), who was serving on the jury of the Venice Film Festival.
