    I assumed that Paul was a little younger than a teenager when I read it.

    I wasn't that keen on the arrangement, but I did think it was cool that Floyd was used since they were supposed to do the Atriedes music for Jodoworsky's version in the 70's

    I wonder how much exposition there is going to be ala the Lynch version

    Because like 70% of the stuff will make no sense to people who haven't read the book

    This film supposedly only covers the first half of the book, so I expect they'll take their time setting up the story for the uninitiated

    Read in high school. Debating whether to reread or to just be surprised and enjoy what I forgot.

    I know it’s dumb, but my brain is struggling to not love Kyle McLaughlin more. Also, Sean Young was sexy as fuck in those scenes where her hair was down and in small braids.

    I haven't read Dune. Not generally big on science fiction. That trailer makes that movie look incredibly intriguing though. Whoa

    From 2016:

    https://variety.com/2016/film/news/...quel-his-way-within-studio-system-1201855955/

    “Arrival” is your first science fiction film and now you are already doing another one. What are your favorite sci-fiers?

    I had been wanting to do sci-fi for a very long time. “2001: A Space Odyssey” is a movie that really impressed me as a teenager. And also “Blade Runner.” And “Close Encounters of the Third Kind” is also one of my favorites. I’m always looking for sci-fi material, and it’s difficult to find original and strong material that’s not just about weaponry. A longstanding dream of mine is to adapt “Dune,” but it’s a long process to get the rights, and I don’t think I will succeed. Also I would love to write something myself. I have two [sci-fi] projects right now that are in very stages. It’s too early to talk about them.

    blessed

    It’s extremely detailed and might be tough for some to follow, depending on the screenplay. The David Lynch version actually had informational papers passed out to each moviegoer to read and reference during the film.

    A three-part miniseries on politics, betrayal, lust, greed and the coming of a Messiah. Based on Frank Herbert's classic science fiction novel.

    Just bought, are Book II and III different acts within the actual Dune book? Internet answered my question. Nevermind.

    Question 2: as I am reading Dune, should I be looking up unknown terms and words in the glossary (gom jabbar, quasifief, kull wahad, etc) or assume they'll be expanded upon in context as I continue?

    Chalamet is good. And the hot takes about his hair ITT are weird gripes with the trailer... most curly haired adult males in europe have that haircut.

    Isn’t the Atreides family lineage traced all the way back to the Roman Empire. So Paul’s hair is fine.

    Well, hell. This turn to the history of House Atreides took me back to the book “Dune: House Atreides” and the Tleilaxu takeover of Xi and it’s description of the reality of what the Tleilaxu Tanks actually were. It remains to be one of the darkest things I have read.

    Halfway through it, never much got into sci-fi but reading the Dark Tower series last year has opened me up to the genre much more.
