Warner Bros. Pictures is set to release its much-acclaimed movie `Dune` in India on October 22 in English and Hindi.

Directed by Academy Award-nominated filmmaker Denis Villeneuve, `Dune` is based on Frank Herbert`s 1965 novel considered one of the most influential books of the 20th century and credited with inspiring many of the greatest films of all time.

"I discovered the book in my teenage years and I remember being totally fascinated by its poetry, by what it was saying about nature - the true main character of Dune. To me, `Dune` is a psychological thriller, an adventure, a war movie, a coming-of-age movie. It`s even a love story. There`s a reason the book stayed on my shelf, beside my bed, all those years," remarks Villeneuve, who at last is able to fulfill his lifelong dream of bringing the landmark work with its complex mythology to life.
