OMG Liet Kynes is a woman!!!! WOW ole Frank would be spinning in his grave..Looks like the "wierding way" is going to be going back to its roots as a martial arts..Jason Momoa looks weird without a beard though..
Its funny how reporters are sort of trying to make things look mysterious though..We all know who Chani is.Must be a Millennial thing...

I would make an educated guess and say most Millennials don't even know what Dune is.

Sorry, but the actor playing Paul looks too effeminate. More manliness, please.

Kyle McLachlan didn't exactly exude Chuck Norris levels of manliness either. biggrin


As for Liet Keynes being a woman, I really don't see it being a big deal since Keynes is a secondary character who dies relatively early in the story.

Yeah but at least Kyle has a defined facial structure and a manly square chin. He also carried himself better. He had a quirky nerdiness to him--still does, but he never seemed like a wuss, especially in Dune.

Kyle and a lot of the original cast had screen presence.Will be interesting to see how the new cast perform in the movie.Liet had a lot more to do in the prequels I think.Im still trying to finish the rest of the books at the moment.Not long started House Atredies and last one I read was Sandworms of Dune..Even as a Gola he had a minor part in the after books.

If you are a fan of David Lynch and Dune you'll find this article interesting:

The Directors extended cut did bring the movie back closer to his vision but yes it was still a shambles to him..It was going to be so much better..

Just finished reading the Prequels..I hope the movie hits a big enough note to go down the road of more movies.I can see it as a cross between Star Wars and Game of Thrones for Millennials..
Liet is the "son" of Pardot Kynes who was the original planetoligist to the Emperors father.It was Pardot who saw the dream that Dune could become a green paradise seen in the later books.His vision and dream won over the Fremen and Liet took over that dream .
Duncan is a Ginaz swordmaster as bladed weapons have a much more pronounced impact in the books than in the movie.If your thinking hey its far in the future where are the Laser guns?Apparently lasers and shields have the bad ability to cause a nuclear chain reaction when crossed..Lasers are used to slice and dice but used warily. High tech was heavily scrutinized after the Butlerian Jihad with the war against the Thinking Machines...

The whole Dune universe is little more than Fantasy without the context of Butler's Jihad. The whole Navigator's Guild and the total dependency on Spice hinges on the plausibility of the absence of sophisticated computers.

Everything I've read about the new upcoming Dune film indicates to me that it will be a VERY well done adaptation. About the only aspect that I'm pretty sure will not be matched is the musical score. That soundtrack by Toto and Brian Eno for the Lynch film is simply brilliant.

Yeah with Zimmer he has a very dark sort of tone with soundtracks..I dont think he has the reach that Eno and Toto pulled off.Big shoes to fill...
Very limited info out there about the movie so far except its finished principle filming.Havent even seen a full cast call yet so a lot of questions on who is playing the Emporer or Feyd and a few others..Stalked the artists and found only a small amount of info on how the Sandworms will pan out.One thing I did see was the Fremen Chrysknife has changed from the Lynch organic tooth design to a more imperial short sword type.Look at the shots of Chani online and you will see it on her belt.

With the current pandemic, the studios and movie theaters have to pump up the excitement any way they can.

I just saw it a few minutes ago. Assuming this film keeps the December release date I WILL go see it in the theater.

I always knew this film would be utterly fantastic. I just hope enough people go out to see it.

The actor playing Paul seems like a wussy douche, the kind I'd want to punch growing up. Overall, I got a general feeling of typical Hollywood pretentiousness from the trailer, such as when he was asked to place his hand in the box and Sister Bene Gesserit stylishly flourished the gom jabbar to his neck.

I am aware of my own irony. Yes, seeing thousands of movies perhaps makes myself a pretentious critic, and I'm fine with that. smile
