NEWSFLASH UPDATE – DUNE RELEASE HAS BEEN DELAYED UNTIL LATE 2021
I’m not overly familiar with the characters or storyline of Dune, but I do know that I’ve been aware of its existence for years. I’m also aware that it has a base of dedicated fans who have been waiting patiently for the newest movie to hit our screens.
The original Dune book by Frank Herbert was published in 1965. It was first made into a movie in 1984, directed by David Lynch, and starred a young Kyle McLachlan – OMG. The book already had many hardcore fans, which meant that the movie was bound to receive a wide range of opinions (which it did) – from total dislike to being called a classic.
Dune was reborn as a three part series in 2000. And while it received many positive reviews about being more comprehensive than the 1984 movie, it still didn’t please everybody.
Fast forward to 2020 and we have another attempt at creating a movie worthy of the original book. This time it’s from Director, Vince Villeneuve, who also directed Bladerunner 2049. Even with my limited knowledge of it, I can already tell you that it’s going to be a tough crowd to please.
Dune is due for wide release in cinemas 26 December 2020. Take a look at the trailer and let me know what you think. Does it impress or does it look like a mess?
I know I want to like this one. The soundtrack sounds haunting, the cinematography looks epic, and the trailer certainly impresses. I really do hope that it lives up to the expectations of hardcore Dune fans.
If you’re up for a New York City thriller full of twists and suspense, then SUBWAY | PALLIATOPIA should be your next read. Hunger Games and Maze Runner fans love it.
They will take your life.
They will take your dreams.
They will take your future.
Palliatopia is the place you don’t want to be, and the place you can never leave.
