Looks like they're splitting this into two movies.

Oh God, please let this be good. Dune is my all-time favorite book, but I feel it may be inherently unfilmable. David Lynch's version was more true to the tone of the book, while the mini series was more true to the plot. But they both were missing a lot of the subtext.

But if anyone can pull this off, it's Villeneuve.

Read all the books as a kid (all of the books written by Frank Herbert, not the sequels written by his kid). Never watched the mini-series and really didn't like Lynch's take. Most interesting Dune film to me (although I'm sure if he got to make the movie he wanted to make, it wouldn't have been anything at all like the book(s) and perhaps wouldn't have been very good, but it would have been interesting) was the documentary about Alejandro Jodorowsky's attempt to make a Dune movie, "Jodorowsky's Dune".

Poor RVR.  No one has taken him up on his offer for a date.

LONG LIVE THE FIGHTERS!

I know that line isn't actually in the book, but it's so iconic from the movie, they'd better fit in... Speaking of fighters, I can absolutely see Dave Bautistic as the Beast Rabban. I just hope he isn't cast as the Baron Harkonnen, or worse still, Feyd Rautha.

Also, PLEASE no sound weapons. These aren't in the book at all.Jessica and Paul has a sort of super martial arts she got from the Bene Gesserit Order, which she passed to he, and they then taught the Fremen. Between that, their abil

They picked an actor for the Baron, and it isn't Bautista

I have faith in Denis Villeneuve, at least in terms of the quality of the film itself.  Arrival and Blade Runner 2049 were both fantastic sci-fi movies.  That said, I imagine it could end up disappointing audiences expecting a regular science fiction adventure romp and it might show in the box office.  But I'm looking forward to it, at least.

I did like Arrival, although it fell apart at the end once it got pointlessly confusing.

Yeah, but they were saying the same thing about the first DUNE, saying it would be the next Star Wars. So take that with a quadrillion grains of sand.

the pink floyd cover is an interesting choice.

Finally, someone figured out how to make an ornithopter that's true to the book without looking stupid. If they can do that, maybe they can really pull this off. I have hope.

Jodorwsky wanted Pink Floyd to do the soundtrack to his version of Dune. Pretty sure it's an homage to that connection. That was the choice of the trailer creators btw. You won't find any Pink Floyd in the actual movie.

There was a documentary about that version of the movie btw called Jodorowsky's Dune.

I know this sounds really stupid, but I am boycotting this movie until we get a riff of the original Dune.

I know right?

For example "My name is a killing word" could be the next Golden Chorale's new slogan!
