The first ten minutes of the film and a lengthy action scene were also shown.
After the series of posters unveiled earlier in the week, the promo of Dune by Denis Villeneuve will continue with the release of a brand new trailer. The official twitter account of the film confirmed it last night, it will be for this Thursday (at 3 p.m. French time according to Joblo.com). And we should take full eyes as shown in the short teaser accompanying the announcement:

Earlier this week, Warner Bros. also organized a screening of the said trailer, as well as the first ten minutes of the film in IMAX format (in France, it took place at Pathé Quai d’Ivry).

More good news, journalists who attended the event report that the title of the film is indeed Dune: Part 1. Which seems to confirm that there will be (at least) another film, as Denis Villeneuve wishes from the start.
Lloyd Chéry, our colleague from Point Pop and maker of the excellent Mook on Dune appeared a few months ago, was able to see the opening of the film as well as another long sequence, and he is won over, whether by the performance of Timothée Chalamet in Paul Atréides or the visual rendering, in particular that of the terrifying worm Sands.
