These look dope, if the shot of Chani is any indication the blue eyes effect from spice consumption is going to be more subdued than the other adaptations, which bums me out but is almost certainly the right call.

These are pre-fx set stills, so if they're touching up the blue with fx we wouldn't see it.

I really do wish any of the adaptations would remember that people sit on chairdogs. Genetically engineered beings shaped like chairs that are made so that the only action they're capable of is perceiving when their owner is going to sit down, and then running to that spot so that their owner sits on them. I don't they don't appear until Heretics but come on give us some live action chairdogs lol.

I like the cold and militant Atreides look because that's much more in character with the books. We see them as the good guys but Leto was still an aristocrat and military leader who had his eye firmly on the imperial throne. The book doesn't explicitly tell us that Leto was holding out to marry Irulan but reading between the lines it's pretty clear.

Imagine if Leto's gambit had paid off and he'd had a year to recruit and train Fremen and stockpile spice. The Emperor really would have had no choice but to adopt him as his son-in-law and de facto male heir. He might not have forced Shaddam to abdicate like Paul did but the end result would still have been the Atreides sitting at the center of galactic wealth and power.

I do feel like there was this brief period in the early 2000s where Alec Newman and Edward Atterton were both on the verge of becoming A Thing in genre TV but didn't quite make it.

No.

Not sure I feel the minimalism of that armor. Would be a shame if it didn't include some of the baroque/rococo-ness of the Lynch version.

Should be better in motion maybe. 2049 had a surprising amount of atmosphere for being relatively sleek design-wise.

It's more like 4500 IIRC. Leto's peace lasts about 3000 years and Heretics and Chapterhouse are around 1500 years after that.

Not really a fan of the costuming. It's just so... generic. Has no personality.

Yeah. I can see an argument for more 19th century aristocratic splendor but on the other hand I can see an argument for portraying the Atreides as what they are: foreign aristocrats who assert their right to dispose of Dune's wealth as they see fit and an army to back up that assertion.

On the third, mutated hand, some designers think "future" means sleek and un-ornamented.

That's pretty much how I'd imagine the Atreides looking when they first land on Arrakis, no-nonsense military stuff.

It’s set like 20k years in the future looking like a modern military with the serial numbers filed off is lame no excuses. Frankly even the Lynch Atreides stuff is a little too recognizable but at least they’re wearing fur coats and carrying lapdogs so there’s some characterization besides “boring military guys”

I mean it's not like the source material makes the Atreides much more colourful.

That's fair but it's just so unremarkable to the point where if you told me those were the cast of characters for the new Star Wars show in Disney+ I would have believed you. You can do unremarkable and still have a distinct style.

True but I think adapting something should take some creative liberties with the source material in appropriate places.
