The first trailer is out and I am moderately excited as they seem not to muck it up so far. Casting is also top-notch. As I understand this will at least two parts, so two movies.


If you not familiar with Dune story, this should get you up to date in 5mins:

I can't wait to watch the trailer later on my rig... only seen it on the computer. ;)

But why'd they have to do Dark Side Of The Moon???! That is sacred territory. *shakes head disapprovingly

Still, very excited for this.

Well, if this time they could spare me of watching Sting in space Speedos, I’d call it a vast improvement.

“Eclipse” by Pink Floyd is a nod to Alejandro Jodorowsky, whose failed Dune project in the mid 70s was to feature a soundtrack by the Floyd.

Technical Aspect: Dune 2020 was shot using the 4.5K Resolution Arri Alexa LF Digital Camera and Mastered in 4K Digital.

So picture quality should be awesome.

This is my newest, most anticipated movie atm. I am very excited for it and hope they don't screw it up. I read 7 or 8 of the novels in this series, twice when I was a teen. At least twice. I started to go through a third time, made it 3 or 4 books in then something else caught my attention and I finally moved on.

This series of books were a huge influence on me and an escape from what was at the time, not such a great life. I loved these books and would spend almost entire days just reading. Now the realist in me knows there's no way to really translate all of it into film, but I'm crossing my fingers that they don't ruin it.

For 8 novels, they should be making 6 Dune movies then.

How can they cram 8 novels into 2 movies?

Dune Movie 1&2 will be based only on the first Dune book. Rest I guess depends on how much money they make from it..

Don’t wanna see any previews. Just the full movie on Blu-ray or dare I say a movie theater. Exciting for sure.

The first two books really complete a story arc. That would have been a better target to shoot for rather than just dealing with the first book. Some people say that there is too much 'stuff' or plot of the first Dune book to contain in just one feature-length film, but I disagree. The 1984 theatrical version did a pretty good job of telling the main story, for all of its problems. I enjoyed the David Lynch version, and in couple ways I think it is even superior to the book, but it was quite a murky movie.

I enjoyed all of the Frank Herbert books, which comprised 6 books in his series. He intended to write a 7th but his death curtailed that project. The Brian Herbert books were, well you only need to get a couple paragraphs in before you realize that Frank's literary talents were not inherited by his son. For me, Frank's books alone are canon. I think a big screen version of God Emporer of Dune would really be something to see.

From the trailer looks like it should be really good. Will be looking to pickup this one on 4K UHD disc.
