Fortnite-Dune crossover gives us Zendaya and Ornithopters
To nobody’s surprise, Dune is the next huge crossover with Fortnite. Expert HYPEX dripped 9 themed products early Monday early morning, and the movie’s leading guy, Timothée Chalamet, struck Instagram with a story revealing his character, Paul Atreides, kitted out inside the fight royale.
The products consist of skins for both Paul and Chani, back bling for both (neither look that various, tbh), a “Sand Walk” emote, the Twinblades as a harvesting tool, and a humorous loading screen. Most likely the most apropos products, nevertheless, are the Ornithopter glider (however naturally), and the Maker Hooks collecting tools. Either would be center square on anybody’s crossover bingo card.
Dune premieres Oct. 22. There’s no particular launch date yet for these products, however it’s an excellent bet they’ll strike the video game quickly. When they do, HYPEX states they’ll be readily available in 2 packages.
Chalamet (and his rowdy hair) stars along with Zendaya as Chani in Dune, whose very first 10 minutes we saw in IMAX back in July (alerting, spoilers there). Director Denis Villeneuve is seeking to break through a thick canon and 55 years of inertia that has actually kept Frank Herbert’s impressive from mainstream cinematic success.
