    Default Dune 2020

    No love for Dune guys and gals?

    If ya didnt know theres a new movie coming in December which I for one am really excited about.

    Love the 84 movie too. Yeah it has its flaws but the fact that they even attempted it is amazing. It is visually a great movie with some cool scenes for the most part.

    Im reading the book again right now too actually. One thing that always bothered me about the writing style of the book is all the god damn character in it. I mean it?s okay but what drives me crazy is the dualism of the characters names. Most all of them are referred to by either their first, last,titled full name all at once. It?s all over the place. Which gets really confusing... but Im used to now. Lol.

    I am eager to see the new Dune Movie. I thought it was coming out at the end of the year though. I read that they are expecting December. I am also looking forward to a 4K version of the 84 version. Hopefully it will be remastered and have some new supplements as well.

    Looks like this is coming in December, not April (last I heard some major characters like Feyd Harkonnen still have yet to be cast.) But I can't wait. Hopefully this one doesn't bomb so that Villeneuve can continue getting big budgets for additional sci-fi epics.

    I meant to say December guys. Sorry for the confusion. Typing on the phone app is annoying. Lol.

    Im fine with December. Theyre saying that they don?t want to compete with blockbuster summer releases is why. Same as Bladerunner 2049

    I do see this doing way better but it is a bit disturbing not to see anyone post its news in this forum yet. Hope it does well and we get more Dune.

    People that saw it already from test screening said what they saw was amazing. They wished they could speak of of it. I cant wait.

    Villeneuve will make this an epic bore-fest.

    Honestly the reason I haven't brought it up is because like BR 2049 I'm gonna try to see this one as "cold" as possible (despite it being based on a famous book.)

    I like the depressed feel of his films.

    Got luv for it - I liked the '84 treatment tho obviously dated now, but IMO well worth watching - seem to remember some other version I didn't care for.

    Just a bit wary as IMO the '84 version was well cast, good script - will definitely check out latest version. Yeah, the books can be kinda heavy - haven't read them all - but pretty sure others have ripped Dune and its concepts off along the way.
