There's no way the stars will align for the 2020 remake of Dune. The cast is terrible, the director is dishonest and thrives on remakes and woke rewriting. And there's the virus. And also, the issue is they've already admitted they are re-writing most of the story anyhow. Dune's kind of a nerd's domain, very un-PC to the modern sensibility, so their final product won't appeal to Herbert's fans nor will it appeal to the casual person who doesn't know about, or care about, this story anyhow.

What are some other movies in the past few years which have flopped? The same director did a "sequel" to Blade Runner and it flopped.

Saw the trailer and shook my head. There in ZERO creativity left in Hollyweird. Everything is a remake of spinoff. The original had a great cast. It can't be duplicated.

The costumes are terrible. Paul's indoors costume looks the same as the Columbine shooter's garb. His "still suit" doesn't have any of the characteristics described in the novel like, bladders for processing the waste into water, etc. It's just some outfit. And everybody is wearing just normal ass ski gloves which are dyed grey. Also the Saddukar troops don't have chunky, armored suits any more. Instead they are garbed in whispy silver lame.

I guarantee you they won't try to create the bizarre anti-technology seen in Lynch's Dune, they will just make everything look whizzy and modern even though computers and shit are forbidden under pain of death in the Dune future.

So weird how they're rehashing stuff. Almost appears as if creativity is no longer the prevailing trait in Hollwood.

Re: The new Dune movie will flop extremely hard, and will never achieve cult status like Lynch's Dune.
From someone who has read every Herbert book and his sons renditions. Which is 20 plus novels and someone who feels the David Lynch rendition is one of my favorite movies. I know Herbert and Lynch did not agree. Honestly I think Lynch sold himself short and the screen play did not lend to the sequels that could be tapped from nailing this franchise. What I’m trying to say is. This movie looks like it might be able to pull a LOTR style rendition. Not as in depth but that gives the experience to the casual viewer. Im actually really excited and I think this has a lot of potential. I’m looking forward to it.

It's all flopping too. How can they afford this? Oh yeah, Soros and Obama Gates and the crew are all putting their own money into it now.

They can't hold out forever. And with the new tradition that Philly started of holding Antifa on a million dollars bail each they can't fund everything.

Just watched the trailer because of this thread

I'll watch it

Loved the books

The 80's movie was an abortion

The sci-fi channel whatever that was, was well, forgettable

Looks interesting, the effects look cool, recognized the characters right away

If it's not boring and doesn't whisper too much it should be worthwhile

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 79317599


Yeah, but no

In terms of plot- yes it is derivative of the Bildungsroman genre from top to bottom

The beauty of this work is the world-building; dude created a complex civilization stretching through thousands of years with dozens of interesting characters, and he did it using just over 400 pages

Not many authors of that age could do that, or even cared to

IMHO it probably deserves two or three “chapters” (ala Jackson’s LOTR) to get it right

It’s worth doing well if only because this novel has had an enormous impact on the science fiction genre in the same way LOTR impacted fantasy fiction

There's no way the stars will align for the 2020 remake of Dune. The cast is terrible, the director is dishonest and thrives on remakes and woke rewriting. And there's the virus.

Looks like it's going to follow Herberts Dune a lot more closely than the old one did.

While I love Lynch and Kyle, Dune was the worst of their efforts. Dont shame Bladerunner 2049 which I think is the best sequel to any film. Even Godfather 2.

I have read 16 and am halfway through Paul of Dune now for my 17th.

I have read Dune itself 5 or 6 times over the past 30-odd years and have seen Lynch's Dune an untold number of times, as well as having watched and rewatched the SciFi channel's Dune and Children of Dune

I consider myself a Dune fan.

Other than saying that the effect of the Holtzman Shields during the Paul/Gurney "fight" scene was immeasurably better than Lynch's effect I have to ask, Zendaya as Chani? I mean, c'mon man!

Look up how movie rights are optioned, studios have to periodically make new updates of properties, or sell the rights to another firm and give the original owners of the property a cut, or they lose their rights to the original intellectual property. In practical terms this means we will see Star Wars, Star Trek, Tolkien, Dune, and all manner of classic movies (and books) remade over and over again.
