Denis Villeneuve’s Dune will be out in the U.S. on October 22nd, and international audiences will get to see the film a month earlier on September 15. To complement the film’s release, Insight Editions will be releasing an art book for the film titled The Art and Soul of Dune. For those wanting something extra, there will also be The Art and Soul of Dune: Limited Edition, which will come with a lot of goodies. Both will be released on the same date as the film’s U.S. release, and you can pre-order them now on Amazon.

Composer Hans Zimmer (Batman Begins, Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, Gladiator), who did the music for the highly anticipated sci-fi film, has also written the soundtrack for the art book. This is the first time he has scored a soundtrack to accompany a book. You can be notified of the free download on the Dune Page.
