Hi everyone, I’ve been wanting to get this post in the bag for some time now, since seeing the first film. I made some predictions when all this started about who I thought should be in the key roles. That’s all ancient history now and, suffice to say, I didn’t get any of them right. […]Read more "Casting Dune – Part 2 Casting Wishlist"
Well, here we are. After so much time, I finally got to see it. I’ve been looking forward to this moment since long before the film was announced. I heard rumours years and years ago about the rights being passed around and I knew it would be only a matter of time before this happened. […]Read more "Casting Dune – The Film! (spoilers)"
I was lucky enough to get a chance to go to Leicester Square tonight and see the IMAX Dune preview event. We were treated to the first ten minutes of the film, the sandharvester scene, lots of extra footage, music and actors talking about the production. There were words from Director, Denis Villeneuve, and then […]Read more "Casting Dune – IMAX first look"
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)"
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"
