A new trailer for Dune dropped recently. I didn't see a thread for it yet. This it is still looking really good. This may be the new Lord of the Rings if they get it right; a movie that we'll be talking about many years after its release. I hope this is that kind of movie.
The casting is on point, and it seems they are filming this in a real desert. The designs of the costumes and vehicles are notibly different from the (imo flawed) 80s classic, although the designs of the 80s Dune movie also have a special place in my heart. The designs here are more sleek.
The Dune universe also has so much lore. I wonder if this film will get a prologue, like Fellowship of the Ring had, to explain the elaborate setting? The Dune universe is a very unique scifi setting, where thinking machines are outlawed after a catastrophic machine war, and specialized human computers (mentats) are now used. I wonder if they'll bother to explain all that? I think they'll at least need to explain why Arakis and the spice melange are so important, so some exposition is unavoidable.
