SANDWORM EXCRETIONS

In 2021, Dune premiered in theaters and on streaming. This movie is about a young man who inherits a dangerous planet and faces a cosmic conflict over its precious resource – Spice, a powerful drug that extends life, expands consciousness, and enables space travel.

Nerdy Fact: The film’s composer, Hans Zimmer, is a big fan of the novel and turned down working with his frequent collaborator Christopher Nolan on Tenet (2020) to score this film.
