    Probably saved for the second part or just combined into Rabban. Aside from the gladiator match he really doesn’t do much in the first half of the book anyway.

    This is probably total bullshit (I hope) but there’s talk of this moving to sometime in 2021. Why? Because this is not a guaranteed hit and WB (and cinemas for that matter) want a big blockbuster in December. So they’re going to push WW84 into that December time slot and move Dune into 2021 sometime.

    Sounds like something WB would consider doing though,

    I can't remember the last time I was this pumped for a film. Perhaps Blade Runner 2049, actually. Cheers Denis.

    Anyway, the design looks amazing. Skarsgard is going to awesome as the Baron.

    Pink Floyd and anyone covering them can fuck off though.

    I dunno, I think the lyrics are quite apt.

    Also Dune nerds are in paroxysms because Jodorowsky was going to get Pink Floyd to do the soundtrack for his aborted version of Dune in the 70s, so it's a nerdgasm all round.

    I'm a bit of a Dune nerd, so I had a bit of a paroxysm.

    Can't say I was pumped for Bladerunner 2049, I was against a Bladerunner sequel from the start and was convinced it was going to be awful (plus I didn't like Arrival at all). Turned out it was utterly brilliant and arguably better than the original. Totally on board for anything Villeneuve does now.

    Yeah, +1 for that. Arrival wasn't the masterpiece some made it out to be, but still a decent film. I didn't bother going to see 2049 at the cinema because it just felt like a pointless sequel, but really regret that now.

    Fair enough and you're probably right. I'm just not a big fan of prog.

    Don't come at my carrying torches but I've never read the books.
    I've watched Lynch's movie about 5 times I and really enjoy it.
    But to right a wrong done so long ago, I decided to buy the buy deluxe edition so I'm looking forward on starting my Dune journey.

    It was definitely a cinema film. Was loving it until the gentleman behind decided to start on his individually foil-wrapped sweets.

    We were in a prime position as well, but I couldn’t be doing with the noise. Cinema was almost empty so it made it louder.

    I moved. Seats were not as good, and I could still see the toffee eater a few rows down. Every now and again he’d check his phone and light up the room. Which is just what you want in a moody quiet atmospheric film.

    Quite took me out of the zen moment the film was giving me. Annoys me to this day. Cunt.

    Bet he’s there for Dune. I think I’ll just cut him if he is. YOU WANT A TOFFEE NOW?

    I went on the final weekend of 2049. Smaller screen viewing. PACKED, with middle aged geeks like me.

    Absolutely fantastic experience. So glad I went. Everyone was sitting in rapt reverence. I actually prefer 2049 to the original, eventhough I realise it's not as groundbreaking.

    Will probably risk my life to see D U N E at the cinemaaahh.

    I started reading the first book a couple of weeks ago in preparation for the new film and so far I'm really loving it. Detailed world building and big, slightly mad ideas. Also it feels surprisingly modern considering it's 55 years old. Kind of like Game of Thrones in space.

    Not sure about moving on to the other books, though. I've heard they get increasingly rubbish as they go on.

    I started reading Foundation after the trailer buzz for the Apple TV series. Not really grabbed me so far to be honest.
    I have never read the books or seen the films or series of Dune either so might get into the book ahead of seeing this. Then I can be a book wanker!
    Although I won't be rushing to the cinema for anything for the next year or so at least...

    The first story arc, really, is four books and are definitely worth reading. If you go up to God Emperor of Dune, you get what the point of everything is, reasonable closure and all the characters you care about are now dead.

    Past that, you get a couple of books that start a new, concluding storyline that are half completed by Frank Herbert and then face planted over the line by his son.

    But, yeah, the first four are definitely worth your time. The line through from Dune to GEOD is really interesting and pays off nicely.

    A potted history of Dune. I have the encyclopedia referred to (now getting on for 40 years old, fucking hell) but if you don't, a rundown of galactic history. Stop at 6.30 if you don't want to spoil the film :)

    Honoured Matres, he pronounces marr-trays. I thought it was mate-rez.
