Dune

I know, JMS totally steals the show here with his announcement, but I wanted to see if anyone has seen this "little" SciFi gem already, and if so: What are your thoughts?

I don't know, how we should discuss this? Spoiler free? I mean the book is from the 60s. Is it even possible to spoil this?

Re: Dune

I thought it didn't come out until the 22nd. The only people who have seen it have been to special VIP previews, I think. I gather the advanced sale of tickets is already making it a pretty strong starter.

Re: Dune

This'd probably get more discussion in Books TV & Films

Good point. Moved.

I haven't seen it yet but it looks like it is going to be quite an eyeful. However, as it is planned to be a multi-film storyline, I believe we only get a portion of story in the book Dune which will likely end with a cliffhanger until the 2nd film comes out.

Re: Dune

how come you didn't got to see it, and I'm about to watch it a third time on Thursday? Aren't we in Europe supposed to being late to all things coming from the US?

I thought it was later in October. Glad to know I haven't missed it. Wanted to give the original a view before the new one.

Re: Dune

So it has released, in other areas. Then what I heard wasn't advanced sales, it's making that much right now. From what I've heard this film will cover something up to somewhere around the middle of book 1. I think the second film got the go-ahead to move forward, but there would have to be quite a wait before we get to see it.

It's the most internationally diverse cast I think I've ever seen.

Re: Dune

Ok then I'll wait with discussions of the film. I didn't research the release date, I just kind of figured, that if we in Europe are able to watch it, surely everyone will...

I'm a rather neat-picky viewer and I always have things to complain about, even with Dune. But I have to say they are minor details. I'd give the movie a 95%+, and I won't say anymore until everyone is able to contribute to the discussion.
