New Dune Trailer

Just watched the 2nd trailer for Dune
[youtu.be]
Directed by Oscar Villaneuve --- that's a good thing.

Looks good.

I love the book so much, I can ID pretty much where every scene will be.

This will be a two part movie, which is good.

I know there will be some changes, including one character having a sex change, but I don't think it will affect the overall story much.

"To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." - Theodore Roosevelt (1918)

"I don’t want to see religious bigotry in any form. It would disturb me if there was a wedding between the religious fundamentalists and the political right. The hard right has no interest in religion except to manipulate it." - Billy Graham 1981

Yeah, that was the only odd thing that I noticed. Of course, they do this in the recent version of the stand as well.

If it gets more people read the novels, I’m all for it.

Sex change? I missed that. But, if gender is not critically germane to the story, then why not. Sci Fi has generally historically been a sausage fest.

Yeah, but last time they had Patrick Stewart, Kyle MacLachlan, and Sting.

I rather enjoyed the ~2000 Sci Fi Channel version.
