The long-awaited trailer for the epic sci-fi film was released on Wednesday, treating movie lovers to a glimpse of the fictional world of the Arrakis and giant sandworms that come with the desert planet.

Among other actors that featured in the movie, which has been scheduled for release on December 18, are Chang Chen, Oscar Isaac, Josh Brolin, Stellan Skarsgård, Stephen McKinley Henderson, Zendaya.
