Is there any information on the pug casting at this stage?

Jason Momoa?

I see the first two books as pretty much equal in quality, with a slow drop-off afterwards that leads to a nose-dive when the Sons of Herbert take over.

The first book, along with many other plots, is about Paul's ascension into godhood through spice, religion and prescience. What is god, and can man understand or even become him?

The second book is a mirror of the first, but in the complete opposite direction. How does one go about killing an omnipotent god?

I'm skeptical that even the second half of this movie will get made, given Blade Runner's performance. The first half will likely be a epic and beautiful bomb, leaving people to wonder what could have been. It'll be Jorodowsky's Dune all over again.

That said, I'm probably more interested in seeing Dune:Messiah adapted to the big screen than the first novel. Face dancers, stone burners, the Tleilax, and omnipotent intrigue all backdropped by an unstoppable holy war.

It takes the themes of the original, turns it on it's head and somehow amplifies the crazy all the way to 11.

e: Gholas.

I'm scraping my brain for my fantasy pick of Padishah Emperor, but I'll be goddamned if I can think of a better casting than David Lynch.

"Plots within plots? WELL LET ME TELL YOU SOMETHING BUSTER"

e: "Paul Muad'dib, have you heard of transcendental mediation?"

Denis Villeneuve is playing Sting, 100% nude.

Moreover, he insisted he direct the film in-character as Sting.

He did it in lieu of payment.

At this stage the lack of promotion just seems suspicious.

What is Villeneuve trying to hide from us?

I wouldn't be surprised if the whole thing were a con, with a little bit of the money going into photoshopping a few stock images, while the rest of the millions are dumped on French Canadian hookers and blow.

I guess what Steven Seagal has really showed us is if you don't die as Feyd-Rautha, you live to become Baron Harkonnen. a sandworm

Couple of leaked images today, pretty low quality so they're probably ripped from the teaser that's supposedly playing somewhere.

So teaser soon, don't spoil yourselves.

he really is the perfect casting for Duncan Idaho, isn't he?

My head-canon imagined a fairly nondescript but superbly competent and loyal guy for Duncan, but hell I'll take the beefcake version too.

Short behind the scenes with some additional footage not seen in the trailer.

The best part is Oscar Isaac basically saying, "gently caress Star Wars this is the new poo poo".

Well there goes any hope of the sequel.

Or cinema surviving past 2021. Who thought this was a good idea?

As a customer I've overjoyed. As a cinema enthusiast who wants evermore- I'm more than slightly concerned.

HBO Max just ensured we are far more likely to see a butthole cut of Dune than Dune II.

Lynch also happens to be a heterosexual man who is largely totally ignorant and unaware of homosexuality and its trappings, and as such tends to deal with it insensitively (if it all).

I have no idea where you're getting this, but I can assure you you're way off base here.

In veering us slightly back into topic- test screenings have confirmed that neither Fayd nor the Padishah Emperor will be showing up in person in the first part.

Continuing with the tangent- if a miracle happens and part two is made, anyone besides David Lynch as Emperor is grave miscast.

Also I need Feyd-Rautha to be a digitally de-aged David Lynch who instead of being keen with a dagger, he just talks everyone's ear off about transcendental meditation.
