All this Dune news has put me in the mood to reread the first book and finally get around to reading the remaining five books of the series.

I'm also curious, is the 1984 movie worth watching?


Yes, but be prepared for it to be cheese.

I would recommend watching the SYFY channel mini series over the movie if you have the time. They did a decent job with a smaller budget and didn't go cheese.

Not much, most recent news is that the 2020 Epic Will ‘Honor Everything’ About the Novel

And honestly, I trust this because Villeneuve is nothing if not a stickler for the source material on his films.

Apparently a small group of Hollywood insiders have been shown some rough cuts and really liked it. Cool beans.

I am beyond excited and I'm not at all surprised. Villenueve has NEVER made a film I didn't love.

First image of Chalamet as Paul in the remake! Obviously, this is at the beginning on Caladan before they leave for Arakkis Spiceworld. :)

Oh man, this looks so dope! Lots more images.

https://www.vanityfa...m_medium=social

The Stillsuits look REALLY good! Grounded like most of Villeneuve's ideas, with a tiny nod or two to the Lynch versions, but still very much DUNE.

Also, how did I have no idea that Momoa was playing Idaho?!

Anyways, this cast is beyond stellar, and I ADORE this director...

EDIT: Fuck it, after I finish AGE OF EMPYRE, I think I'm going to re-read DUNE.

EDIT 2: It looks like they gender flipped Liet Kynes too....that will probably ruffle some Dune-purist feathers, but it doesn't bother me at all.

Oscar Isaac as Leto is perfect.

I'm looking forward to the movie Kynes and the upgraded arcs for the other women. That's long been something that bothered me about Dune.

I also think that breaking the first book into two movies is a great idea. Not sure where they end the first one, but if they could go heavier on the Imperial Palace some that would really make Irulan pop.

Especially because the Seitch's are patriarchal in nature in the books, so Liet being Chani's mother instead of father (if that's what's going to happen, who knows) then that fundamentally changes the Sietch cultural structure and frankly I feel for the better. This book was in the 1960's and time has moved on, so the story should too. Like Jackson adapting LOTR and amping the female presence in them, this can only be a good thing.

The initial book was always thought by Herbert as two volumes as far as I've always heard, and it's a behemoth, so this makes arguable sense. I would think the cut between the two films will be Paul ascending to become Muad'dib proper, no?
