It was the summer of 2019, and the cast and crew of Dune had ventured deep into the sandstone and granite canyons of southern Jordan, leaving in the middle of the night so they could catch the dawn on camera.

The light spilling over the chasms gave the landscape an otherworldly feel.

“There are these Goliath landscapes, which you may imagine existing on planets in our universe, but not on Earth.”.

The dominant species on that world are immense, voracious sandworms that burrow through the barren drifts like subterranean dragons.

“I remember going out of my room at 2 a.m., and it being probably 100 degrees,” says Chalamet.

During the shoot, he and the other actors were costumed in what the world of Dune calls “stillsuits”—thick, rubbery armor that preserves the body’s moisture, even gathering tiny bits from the breath exhaled through the nose. »
