  • When I first heard of Villeneuve filming DUNE a couple of years ago, I had high hopes for the project. Now that I've seen the trailer, I still have high hopes, it looks very promising. I just hope and keep my fingers crossed that it will be profitable enough to warrant that the second film will be done accordingly. I mean, this is just DUNE, Part I, even though it is understandably not called that. But like THE LORD OF THE RINGS, it was decided that the material is too complex and unwieldy for a single movie, so it was always going to be two movies (at least two movies.. for the original novel DUNE, obviously there are prequel/sequel books as well, that may or may not be filmed one day, but we're just talking DUNE here.)

    Not having read any of the books (yet), does it stand to reason that each book will require 2-parter movies?


    It's a two part movie based on the first novel, DUNE, wich is very big indeed.
    Kind like LORD OF THE RINGS.

    If only Elliott Goldenthall had been given this assignment? Just saying....

    Absolutely. Back when the Dune remake was just a dream project, Goldenthal was my dream composer for the score. I've consistently thought that Dune was tailor-made for Goldenthal. The vastness of his soundstage appropriately fits the vast physical and metaphysical sweep of Dune's story along with his ability to incorporate the avant-garde.

    Not DUNE MESSIAH. Maybe CHILDREN OF...

    God I could use some more sci-fi Goldenthal in my life.

    Indeed , why tell us the same old stories again and again?

    I'm not saying it will be this time (but I'm hopeful) but I'm not sure this story was really told before. As opposed to Lord of the Rings, for example. I didn't like it, but I can't imagine anyone is in any hurry to remake it.

    Of course the funny part is that this movie will be telling the part of the story that the Lynch movie actually did well.

    I spoke to a guy at Odeon cinemas today and he said the thing that has kept them afloat during this pandemic, was their foresight to book a ton of older films that they could show (things like Jurassic Park, BTTF, Goonies, Mama Mia) alongside the odd new title like Tenet, Bill & Ted 3, Onward and that Russell Crowe road rage film (plus some lower budget horror and animated films).
    Something he said Cineworld didn't do, to their regret now.
