New Dune movie trailer, and it looks like Yet Another Movie, sadly. Give me daring aesthetics!


I didn't like Dune much while reading it, but if there has to be a new movie, I don't want it to be one among thousands. I imagine watching “Jodorowsky's Dune” has spoiled me senseless. But look at Giger's concept art!

Or this excellent throne room art that shows the ridiculous sense of scale present in the books! (via DeviantArt,

Unless the trailer is misleading, Mad Max had a stronger sense of different and bold aesthetics than Dune.

Herbert once said that Schoenherr was the only man who has ever visited Dune. Illustrations:

@rixx Half of the movie would just be walking up to the throne.

@rixx now I want to watch the old Dune movies. and Fury Road.

@rixx (old movies just to get a sense of "what was that story again" to see if I want to read the books because ooof, so many books to be read)

@pascoda Dune is somewhat like Tolkien, in that it was foundational for a genre, but is not a particularly good book on its own unless you just happen to be into the concept, imo. I didn't enjoy reading it, but it was weird in a way that isn't done anymore, and felt educational. I'm happy I read it but I wasn't particularly happy while reading it.

@rixx yes, this. Having seen "Jodorowsky's Dune" it's unlikely that anything will be as good as Jodorowsky's vision promised :(

@rixx Now I see what you mean. I watched the documentary on “Jodorowsky's Dune”, the movie that was cancelled just before filming began. Impressive stuff!


(I don't want to spoil a movie you like but to contextualize : Jodorowsky is a rapist, and a proud one in top of that)

@Nocta My point is not about Jodorowsky, that's just the movie's title. My point – and the image I posted – is about Giger and his drawings.
