Hi everyone, I thought I’d let the dust settle before I wrote anything about this. The Facebook groups have been alive with discussion since it was released. I saw the premiere on Twitter on my phone (again, don’t tell David Lynch, he wouldn’t approve!) I don’t remember how many posts I’ve written about this film […]Read more "Casting Dune – Trailer Analysis"
So, I thought I would stick this on as I’ve been rereading the book over the past few weeks (I listen to it while going to sleep so I have to start over and over again with the last part I can remember each time). I remember much preferring this three part mini-series put together […]Read more "Tonight’s Viewing – Children of Dune (2003)"
…or is it the trailer? Is it a trailer for a trailer? Previews within previews within previews. So, I’m glad that I’ve finally managed to find this as everyone else in the world seems to have seen it before me. I saw it in a very low quality, shaky format someone shared on Twitter complete […]Read more "Casting Dune – Trailer Reaction"
Hi everyone, It’s been ages since we had any news on Dune so it’s been a real thrill to get so much new stuff over the course of a couple of days. It gives us our first look at the actors in role. Obviously, these are prepared shots as opposed to stills from the film […]Read more "Casting Dune – Vanity Fair First Look reaction"
There have been quite a few posts showing this and I thought it was worth an update as I haven’t had anything concrete to write about in this project for quite some time. Images have been dropping left, right and centre including posters and artwork but they all get debunked within a few hours as […]Read more "Casting Dune – Logo reaction"
Despite its many flaws, I should preface this by saying that I prefer this to any Star Wars film ever made. Director David Lynch’s struggles over this project are well documented elsewhere and I won’t attempt to better what other, more well-informed, people have already written on the subject. What lies at the heart of […]Read more "Tonight’s Viewing – Dune (1984)"
Hi everyone, I was thinking about my leadership style the other day and wondering who my role models were. Obviously, there are the ones who exist in real life. On top of them, however, are those who lurk in the recesses of my brain; filled as it is with pop culture references. I listed all […]Read more "Great Leadership Advice from Outer Space"
I was interested to see this, primarily to see Timothee Chalamet in a role closer to what he has taken on in Denis Vielleneuve’s Dune. Having only seen him in Lady Bird and Call Me By Your Name, I was wondering how he would cope in a film with a much larger scale. I shouldn’t […]Read more "Tonight’s Viewing – The King"
It’s been a while since we had any updates about casting but this popped up today and I thought it was worth a post. I held off on the additional Sardaukar cast announcements that were made but I’ll give those people a shout out at the end. So, the iMDB listing for next year’s Dune, […]Read more "Casting Dune – Mapes and Hawat confirmed + more"
A flurry of activity over the last couple of days has seen three more cast members added to the IMDb listing for next year’s Denis Villeneuve reboot of Frank Herbert’s Dune. Even though the role of the Padishah Emperor Shaddam IV is yet to be cast, his army is taking shape. Peaky Blinders regular Paul […]Read more "Casting Dune – More names announced"
