Jason Momoa’s Duncan Idaho Featured on Empire Magazine Cover

Jason Momoa will be playing the character of Duncan Idaho in the upcoming Dune adaptation from Denis Villeneuve.  Empire Magazine will be featuring the movie in next month’s issue and revealing details from a set visit.  A trailer is expected to drop on September 9th for the highly anticipated film.  This is the second look at Jason’s character, the first having been revealed by Vanity Fair back in April.  You can check out that first look HERE.  Meanwhile, check out the Empire Magazine covers below!

From Empire Magazine:

The new issue of Empire is a major world-exclusive, going on set of Villeneuve’s ambitious adaptation, getting acquainted with the Atreides, and coming face-to-face with the Fremen. There are two Dune covers to collect – first up is House Atreides, one of the great noble houses of Landsraad. Up front is Timothée Chalamet’s young protagonist Paul Atreides, with Oscar Isaac as his father Duke Leto, Rebecca Ferguson as the Bene Gesserit witch Lady Jessica, and Josh Brolin’s master-at-arms Gurney Halleck.


On the second cover, you’ll find the indigenous Fremen people of the planet Arrakis – including Javier Bardem’s Stilgar, leader of one of the Fremen tribes, and Zendaya’s tribe member Chani. Then there’s Sharon Duncan-Brewster as Liet-Kynes (gender-swapped from the original novel) who has become embedded among the Fremen, and Jason Momoa’s Duncan Idaho – who isn’t a Fremen, but whose destiny may ultimately lie with them.


Jason Momoa also shared the covers on his Instagram account along with the nugget that the trailer will be released on September 9th and he has seen it and thinks it’s the best trailer he’s ever seen.  He might be a little biased of course. 😉

Pre-order the House Atreides cover online here, and pre-order the Fremen cover online here. Alternatively, pre-order the bundle of both covers here with an extra discount.

This month’s subscriber cover, created exclusively for Empire by Jane Yun and Enrique Torres at Bond, in collaboration with the filmmakers behind Dune, is a terrifying glimpse at the colossal sandworms of Arrakis – with one threatening to swallow an oblivious Paul Atreides whole.
