Earlier this week, word came out that the very first trailer for Denis Villenueve’s Dune would screen together with Tenet once Christopher Nolan’s movie drops on August 31.
Today, images from the teaser have somehow made their way online, and while most of the shots feature characters that fans have seen in official stills of the film, it also gives us our very first look at Guardians of the Galaxy star Dave Beautista’s character, Glossu Rabban Harkonnen.
Pictures of Glossu Rabban Harkonnen have been making the rounds on Twitter the past few hours, and it looks like Raban has really pale, nearly chalk-white skin.
For those who aren’t familiar with the character, Rabban is the older nephew of Baron Vladimir Harkonnen. Like his uncle, Rabban is cruel and sadistic. He’s nicknamed by the Fremen as “The Beast.” In the original novel by Frank Herbert, Rabban is instructed by the Baron to terrorize the people of Arrakis and break their spirits so that Feyd-Rautha would be welcomed as a hero when he would take over the place.

For those who aren’t familiar with Dune the book, the story focuses on the Atreides family as they relocate to the planet of Arrakis to assume control of the production of the Spice Melange, one of the most valuable resources in the galaxy.
The very first trailer for Dune is reportedly set to release on September 9, however, with so many pictures circulating online, it’s possible that the preview may come sooner than expected.
