I watched The King on Netflix with Timothee Chalamet and I wasnt exactly impressed.

If we're basing our Dune opinions on The King then Robert Pattison should play Feyd.

I am also concerned that the Jodorowsky Dune documentary has set impossible expectations, (also, did anyone grab the film rights for The Incal?)

They already made The Fifth Element.

Stephen McKinley Henderson - Probably Hawat, but no confirmation.

The Vanity Fair article confirms this.

I wouldn't mind that, but I think it's somewhat important that Feyd be at least in the same generation as Paul. He's a twisted mirror to Paul, the embodiment of why the system has to burn down; its inevitable final champion. If he's too much older I don't think that hits as hard.

Tom Holland as Feyd

The best one is uh... Mortal Kombat?

This. Nothing has topped it in 25 years. It has exactly the right tonal balance for a video game movie. Detective Pikachu was fine, but it's a kids movie and doesn't aspire to be anything more than that. I'm assuming Sonic is in the same vein.

is zimmer still trying to pull off really obvious plagiarisms? that is the most notable thing i know about him

Zimmer dropped out of scoring Tenet because Dune is a dream job for him so I'm expecting this to be some effort at the very least.

The thought I had most reading the Incal was "drat, that would look great in a movie".

You could just watch The Fifth Element.

That would be a surprise, Villeneuve said it took them a year to design the worm. I don't think part 2 has even been greenlit yet.

as far as dumb popular music songs playing over a movie trailer goes Pink Floyd is pretty good imo

Jodorowsky wanted them to score his version of Dune so it's come full circle!

Denis has mentioned that dune caught his attention as a kid because of the french paperback cover



It seems like he's playing with a lot of eye imagery (the round sandworm mouths) as well as like circular voids (again the sandworm, the planet being a pit-like trap for the Atreides, Paul being in that place where the BG dare not go staring back at them). Maybe it's a stretch but that seems to be a motif that gels with the story

2049 had a ton of eye imagery too, although it was building off of the original.

A live Dune stunt show event where edibles are distributed beforehand would be cool as gently caress. And they can insert in character music/conversations in it for the ecological/world building stuff.



I went to a drive in screening of Fury Road this summer that included actors and acrobats in costume performing in coordination with the movie and it was pretty fun (edibles were also involved).

Early screenings suggest the running time is 2 hr 15min which is surprisingly short. I think WB wanted to avoid another BR2049 situation.

I don’t know why it’s a foregone conclusion that Dune won’t get a sequel. I’m not especially bullish on it but it seems perfectly possibly that theaters rebound by release day, it gets a huge marketing push and meets their expectations. I’m not saying it’s guaranteed or even the most likely outcome but studios have bankrolled plenty of sequels for less.

Wouldn't it make more financial sense to film it all at once? They already have a complete story to work off of (no idea if the second script is finished though), all the sets are built and preproduction finished, and they were already on location with all the actors there. Maybe Villeneuve wanted Chalamet to age naturally to fit the time jump in the book?

I found Denise during Season Two to be a broadly sympathetic character, but absolutely is played for laughs at several points, and I can't imagine they actually consulted with any people who are trans when creating or writing the character. I also don't think Lynch actually wrote or directed any of the significant Season Two Denise episodes, though I'm not sure what hand he played in creating her, if any.

Lynch does certainly seem to be either disinterested or disturbed by homosexual male characters though. The most significant male gay-coded character I can think of is Ben from Blue Velvet, whose sexuality seems to be used to disorient the audience and little more.

One take I've read on Denise is that the character is treated with some light humor by most of the other characters in the show with the exception of Agent Cooper who is totally cool with it and never (intentionally) misgenders her which is about as good a take on trans people you could get in the early 90s. In Season 3 Lynch kind or awkwardly pats himself on the back for being progressive (in character as Cole) when Duchovny makes a brief cameo. But he says "change your hearts or die" which is a good line.
