I believe the "logic" behind the money films make is a bit changed during the Corona restrictions - they will look for top performers, but they might not necessarily expect them to be actually profitable because the cinemas are forced to operate at reduced capacity and a lot of people are not going to go because of the risks associated with public gatherings in closed rooms. Some might really just release these movies now because they can't actually afford sitting on all of the cost for another year or so.My fear is it's actually good but due to Covid makes no money and we don't get part 2.
It looks pretty good but kind of...empty. Lynch's film, despite its flaws, was deeply atmospheric and weird, with a real mystical quality. Based on this trailer, this seems more vanilla. But we'll see.
Of course, there could be some movie-related companies that might be financially ruined and not be able to make new movies, or help make new movies.
It could also be that the next movies coming up with need to be at lower budgets because money is tight and they can't take such big leaps anymore.
”Roughly the first half”. Don’t know where exactly it’s going to finish off, but they aim to make it a satisfying story that can standalone (presumably in case they can’t make the sequel).How far into the book does this go? Not far? Hoping we get the whole book over time.....
I think Jared Leto is treading Johnny Depp level of annoying, I cant put my finger on it but he just does.
Having "read" Dune, (I'll get to that in a minute), I think its a hard book to translate to a movie in my opinion. Too long for a single movie but not long enough for two.
I really love Blade Runner 2049 and I like Villeneuve's work as a rule. But something about this just seems a little off to me. Like, it does not feel quite gritty enough or something. Which is ironic given that the film is about a desert planet, .
Maybe it has been too long since I read the combat described in the books. But what I do remember is that the Fremen thought Paul was messing with them because he always hesitated with his blows. But that was due to how personal shields work. Yet the melee combat between shielded opponents looks really fast?
