I'm still thinking that Villeneuve has leant heavily on the backstory of the Killzone video game race the Helghan's who are bald and pale faced because their planet is superheavy industrialised with a harsh atmosphere.

I wouldn't be surprised if it's Jared Leto.

Leto is slim and pretty. Is a rock star (like Sting in Lynch's Dune). And has also worked with Villeneuve before in BR2049.
Feyd should be in part one if they include the meeting scene where
[Show spoiler]the Baron tells him and Rabban the plan to get rid of House Atreides
. He should show up again if they include the scene from the original movie where
[Show spoiler]he steps out of the steam in his underwear as his uncle stares at him longingly
. Somehow I don't think the latter is making it into Villeneuve's version.

Reminds me of The Shining. I would have loved to have seen Jodorowsky's film, but no matter how good it could have been, it would have faced hard criticism from those wanted a straight version of the novel - especially given its popularity in the 70s. At least one remake was always inevitable, and personally I can live happily with all of them. Probably be a musical someday.

*edit* - no "probably" about it; guess there's already a musical

I don’t care if they have to partially crowd source the second movie. I’ll buy both blu-rays right now. Take my money.

If Villeneuve asked for some money for part 2, I'd give the dude a $100. I could spare that for him.

Imax Partners With Leading Camera Makers to Open Up Its Large Format Production to More Filmmakers (Exclusive)

Quote:
Denis Villeneuve’s Dune and Joseph Kosinski’s Top Gun: Maverick, are among the first releases certified through the new program. Dune was lensed by Oscar-nominated DP Greig Fraser (Lion) with the ARRI LF, and Maverick by Oscar-winner Claudio Miranda (Life of Pi) with the Sony Venice. These filmmakers collaborated with IMAX early on, as IMAX was still putting together the new partnership program.

Bruce Markoe, Imax's senior vp of postproduction/operations and DMR (Digital Media Remastering), explained that the general parameters for camera certification include that they offer resolution of 4K or higher; and could allow the filmmakers to create an aspect ratio for IMAX's more square screens (approximately a 1.43:1 aspect ratio) or floor to ceiling/wall to wall screens (1.90:1). (IMAX would like at least some of certified productions to support at least one of these aspect ratios. According to Markoe, Dune will have sections in both of the aspect ratios, and Maverick will have sections in 1.90:1.)

I wonder what exactly they mean when they say Dune will have “both aspect ratios” in imax.

Do they mean that all of the non-2.35:1 shots will open all the way up to 1.43:1 in full imax and be framed down to 1.90:1 for the smaller theaters or does he literally mean that we’ll see all three aspect ratios (scope, 1.90 and 1.43) in the full-sized version of the movie?

If those tech specs turn out to be true and they’re not using any other cameras (like, for example, the Alexa 65), then it’ll be amusing to see the difference between the ultra vista 2.37:1 shots and the spherical 1.43:1 shots since neither will be using a single pixel more or less than the other on the image acquisition side of things, only in projection.

I think it's funny that from the director that is giving us the new DUNE, came THE ARRIVAL... which you can buy the BD for $4.99.

I'll stick with the Lynch one.

Yeah, Lynch’s Dune is $9.97! The price of blu-rays really determine’s the quality of movies!

Ah, the old judge a movie before you've seen it based on nonsense angle. Classy.

Random short story vs what’s considered by many to be the greatest science fiction novel of all time.

The new trailer really has me hyped but im still on the fence with Jason Momoa as Duncan. Hes such a vital character in Dune I can't see Momoa pulling it off I would've liked to see Oscar Isaac as Duncan

It seems like Momoa being Momoa.

Honestly though, this Dune looks closest to how I picture the book. A tad too morose look/colour, but other than that, spot on.
And people need to read the book and/or chill. Lynch's version is fun but so devoid of what the book was truly about; and Jodo's take was going to be bizarre and wacky and astonishing but oh so very wrong for a book adaptation.
