Dune 2020: Why Dave Bautista’s Beast Has Bleached Skin

Denis Villeneuve’s Dune features a reinvented Glossu Rabban or “Beast”, this time played by Dave Bautista and sporting pale bleached skin.

Dave Bautista will play a reinvented version of Glossu Rabban Harkonnen in Denis Villeneuve’s Dune, and this time, Beast will be sporting pale, bleached skin. A new vision of Frank Herbert’s celebrated sci-fi novel will soon appear in the form of Villeneuve’s Dune – the highly-anticipated adaptation that looks set to right many of the wrongs perpetrated by David Lynch’s Dune movie. The first trailer for the film has promised a suitably epic take on the source material, giving viewers their first extended glimpse at the director’s vision.

Alongside footage of lead Timothée Chalamet as Paul Atreides, the Dune trailer included first-looks at some of the story’s central characters. Audiences got their first glimpse of the legendary sandworms that populate the baron desert plains of the planet Arrakis, while a brief shot revealed Stellan Skarsgård’s Baron Vladimir Harkonnen – the central villain of the movie and nemesis of House Atreides. The Baron’s blood-thirsty nephew and Harkonnen enforcer Glossu Rabban, aka “Beast,” also shows up in the trailer, providing a quick look at Dave Bautista’s version of the character. And this time, it looks like Villeneuve has gone in a very different direction.

If you recall, there was a quick hand-to-hand combat scene between Paul Atreides (Timothee Chalamet) and Gurney Halleck (Josh Brolin) in the trailer, featuring protective shields. Supposedly there’s more than meets the eye here. So director Denis Villeneuve provided some more insight on this style of combat while speaking with EW, and what he says sounds incredible:
