Apparently, it's roughly the first half of the book. As I understand it, Part 2 hasn't been greenlighted yet.
I really hope this first part makes enough money to convince the studios to finish it.

edit: There's a spoiler-ish thread around here about the movie.
Maybe y'all should wait until part 2. This one ends with a to be continued

I’m holding on to the absolutely hopeless hope that this one will extend to include the entire double-trilogy of books, with Momoa playing Duncan/Ghola in every movie...

I find it very strange that prop guns in movie sets are even capable of firing lethal shots... In this day and age, the cgi would be so cheap that using practical effects is just dumb, and even if you absolute must have practical effects, why not create mock guns that can’t fit anything but custom made blanks...

That should have become the standard at the latest when Brandon Lee died.
Even blanks can be lethal in certain circumstances.

That said, Lee’s death DID change a lot about the way firearms are handled on Hollywood movie sets .

I suspect that they still use real guns because of a combination of money, a desire for verisimilitude, and other factors.

Yeah a projectile is expelled from the gun when blanks are fired. It's a wad of something but even a wad of paper going fast enough can injure or kill. One precaution is they no longer point guns at other actors. They use camera angles and other tricks. If you pay attention you'll notice. It's still pointed in the general direction of the camera and that's where the director and cinematographer often are.

If there is mildew on furniture, what could it mean? I know mildew in a basement is from moisture. It's cool and damp. In a trailer or the upper parts of the house what could it mean? Shouldn't be as dark, cool, or damp.

I was turning around in a cul-de-sac when a hawk came flying in to land near by. I think the flying away pics were pretty good.

From what little I've read, it looks like there WERE increased safety measures put into place in an attempt to prevent such an incident from happening again, but in this case, it looks like those measures weren't followed. That of course led to this tragedy. I can't imagine what Alec Baldwin is thinking right now. Like... he just shot and killed someone. But... it wasn't really his fault because he thought it wasn't loaded. So it's probably a mixture of him going "Damn, if only I had noticed or not done whatever" and "Who the Hell put a loaded gun on the table and why wasn't it checked before giving it to me?"

Edit: Oh, looks like other people commented about the increased safety measures. Hah. Guess I should have read further before responding!

Dune is on HBOMAX. Dune Part 1? I really hope this is a complete story.
At least the movie tells you it before hand (although I didn't realize it until I actually started it). It's like "Hey, you're watching part one." I stopped, looked at the screen and was like "Do I want to continue knowing it won't be resolved?" I was bored and a little sleepy, so I decided I might as well. But at least I was prepared for the story to not be finished.

I can't remember off hand for the life of me, but I remember watching a movie and then it suddenly ended with a "To be continued" and I was like wtf? I was sooooooo mad. Seriously though, if I'd known that, I wouldn't have gone and watched it but waited for the second part to come out. Cause yeah, they just stopped in the middle of the story and apparently decided we were going to have to pay a second time to see "the whole movie". Ugh...

The weapons master was on one of her first projects solo. Another production was filming at the same time but basically this is her first time as the lead. She has to be devastated. I don't know if criminal charges are in the works. You can bet a wrongful death suit is. Naming her, Alec, the studio, and whomever they can think of. Alec Baldwin is not one of the best people, but I still feel horrible for him. I couldn't imagine. I know the families are in pain. The worst part is, it really was an avoidable tragedy. It's something they'll have to live with. I hope everyone involved can heal from it.

Hannah Reed is the armorer. Halyna Hutchins is the cinematographer. Hannah holding gun. Halyna holding camera. Both so young.

And yes I think 42 is young. 😛 For such a thing 42 will always be too young.
