    I would really recommend reading the book

    The book, definitely. It's one of sci-fi masterpieces anyway.

    I love the pics. Seeing Chalamet in a stillsuit really helps; I am finally starting to see him as Muad'Dib. Chalamet is a very talented actor, there's no denying that but I admit I had a hard time imagining him as a hardened Fremen warrior. He's just... too pretty. I have confidence that Dune's unforgiving sun and sand will do a number on that porcelain skin.

    And those pics also seemed to confirm a little theory I have: where Villeneuve will end his first movie. If you've read the book, it's evident. If you haven't, I'm not going to spoil it for you.

    I'd like to point out that there is no casting on this movie for Alia and there is no way Villeneuve has cut her out from the story.

    Thanks for the feedback everyone. Seeing that David Lynch directed the original film, with Kyle McLachlan starring puts a smile on my face. Needed some new reading material so this is perfect.

    There are going to be 2 movies, so they should be able to cover a lot of territory while not getting all Hobbitt on it. I've had the urge to watch the Lynch version again lately. Going to soon, mainly because I"m on a David Lynch bender.

    I really enjoy Lynch's movie. There are good things in it. And I looove the soundtrack. I have it on CD and I often listen to it.

    In 2000, the Sci Fi Channel (as we wrote it at the time) did a 3 parts miniseries with Dune. I did not like it very much. However, they also did a sequel called Children of Dune in 2003. It was 3 parts also, the first one being based on Dune Messiah. That series is really good. The actress playing Alia was amazing.

    The major change they made for the series is that they aged the twins. Instead of being 10, they are young adults. Leto II was played by some unknown young actor by the name of James McAvoy, and we got to see the beginning of his transformation into the God Emperor.

    Made for TV with so so special effects but still very entertaining.

    I remember Christmas shopping at Egghead Software. I picked out the Dune PC game for my dad, but I think I was the only one at home that ever played it.
    The soundtrack really stood out, and still sounds good today.

    The Amiga version of the soundtrack was a bit different:

    There's also this thing, which is neither the PC nor the Amiga version:

    There's also a part 3.

    First footage of Dune to be shown at the re-release of Inception on July 17. Trailer rumored to be shown at the virtual Comic-Con.

    It's better be true or I might go full Rabban the Beast on them!
