Frank Herbert's Dune Episode 1 Film Poster


First episode in the television mini-series based on Frank Herbert's classic sci-fi novel. Under the leadership of Duke Leto (William Hurt), the House of Atreides takes over the command of the desert planet Arrakis and the harvesting of its uniquely powerful 'spice', an element essential to inter-galactic space travel. But their rule is disrupted by Baron Harkonnen (Ian McNeice), a former commander of the planet, who has vowed to do everything in his power to regain control. Harkonnen brings chaos to the Atreides regime, banishing Jessica (Saskia Reeves) and Paul (Alec Newman), Leto's wife and son, to the mercy of the desert, and re-establishing his control of the spice flow.
