Keep seeing this about a new Dune film although their dose not seem to be anything trailer wise released yet.

Never got on with the book but I do like the David Lynch version of it.

Beat me posting it. 😀 

I have to wonder why they have done another version of this.

Perhaps because the first movie was pretty ordinary (as they'd say in Australia)!

I would not call Lynch version ordinary although it was a failure on release and put Lynch off making anymore big budget films but it does have a unique visual look, no idea how close it is to the book as I was never able to get into the book. But looking at the trailer for the new one it seems they have just copied it scene for scene.

Can't help but feel why do Dune again after doing a film and a couple of tv series when their are show many other Sci-Fi books which could be made into films, is it just trying to start a new film franchise.

I don't think its failure (or ordinariness) was Lynch's fault. His other works are certainly not ordinary - Eraserhead (I love Eraserhead) and Twin Peaks demonstrate that - but Dune was always going to be a tough novel to filmify.

Lynch was unhappy with the work, later saying, "Dune was a kind of studio film. I didn't have final cut. And, little by little, I was subconsciously making compromises."  Much of his footage was eventually removed from the final theatrical cut, dramatically condensing the plot.

I believe that their is a longer version of the film which was shown on American TV in the late 80s but Lynch was unhappy with that cut and had his name removed from it.

I still think it's a bit of an odd pick to remake.

The reviews are in - and it's been split into two parts, apparently.

You could be right. But on the other hand...

“Denis Villeneuve hasn’t succeeded where the likes of David Lynch and Alejandro Jodorowsky have already failed, [but] his Dune is at least uniquely dispiriting.”

Loved to have seen the Jodorowsky version of this or the Ridley Scott one, but still feel it's an odd choice to have been given a remake.
