The science fiction film Dune is an adaptation of the 1965 novel by Frank Herbert. It is the second adaptation of the book, following 1984's David Lynch version, which was not well received by audiences or critics. In 10191, Duke Leto I of House Atreides, ruler of the ocean planet Caladan, is assigned by the Padishah Emperor Shaddam Corrino IV to replace House Harkonnen as fief rulers of Arrakis. Arrakis is a harsh desert planet and the only source of "spice", a priceless substance that extends human vitality and is critical for interstellar travel. In reality, Shaddam intends to have House Harkonnen stage a coup to retake the planet with aid of the Emperor's Sardaukar troops, eradicating House Atreides whose influence threatens Shaddam's control. Leto is apprehensive but sees potential to ally with Arrakis’ native population, the Fremen, as the first step toward increasing the Atreides' standing in the Landsraad.
