DUNE IS THE NEW STAR WARS!

by James Murphy

This Trailer confirms everything. If DUNE is not a massive hit? Then cinema is truly doomed (duned?)..

 

 

Welcome to new Star Wars, done RIGHT. IE: what the sequels and prequels could and should have been as much as a redemption of DUNE on film (the original attempt from David Lynch simply did not work imho). 

  • Self contained, simple adventure pitch that hints at wider universe and lore.
  • Perfect harmony between older and younger cast members.
  • Oscar Isaac used properly rather than as some second rate Han Solo rip off.
  • There is a Princess in peril. An evil Emperor! A youthful hero with a touch of destiny about them. And a big brother cool dude.
  • Looks like there might be a Death Star? Certainly armies in the sand and stars.
  • Political and Mythological whilst existing as pure fantasy and sci-fi on its own terms.
  • See for yourself, below..
