Lack of blockbusters like Dunes will seriously damage the course of Comic-Con, one of the largest and most important exhibitions in the world of entertainment. Especially when you consider that big names like Marvel, Universal, Disney and Netflix won’t be there. The presence of actors such as Zendaya, Timothée Chalamet and Florence Pugh at the convention would certainly help.

It stars Timothée Chalamet, Zendaya, Rebecca Ferguson, Josh Brolin, Stellan Skarsgård, Dave Bautista, Stephen McKinley Henderson, Charlotte Rampling and Javier Bardem. New cast members include Austin Butler, Florence Pugh, Christopher Walken, Lea Seydoux, Suheila Yacoub and Tim Blake Nelson.
