A slideshow of advertising for a movie remake.

Pocket Ninja: A slideshow of advertising for a movie remake.

Fark off.


Considering this version seems to have actually been in vague contact with the actual story, compared to whatever the fark Lynch did, can it truly be called a remake?

Thats cool and all, but do we really need promo posters for Dr Yueh, Liet Kynes, Mother Mohiam, Piter deVries?  Might as well do one for the key grip.

So did Grima in LotR. Did they make a promo poster featuring him? Seems like they're going pretty deep into the bench.

First time facial hair has been given proper credit for a major supporting role since Sam Elliot's mustache's Oscar nomination for The Big Lebowski.

I bet you're one of those damn Gilligan's Island fans that liked the original Season 1 opener credits with "Gilligan and all the rest" instead of the later intros that listed the whole damned main character set. Oh the horror, people are getting recognition for their contributions who just aren't the "Best Male/Female, Best Supporting".

Why would they be smiling?
Main characters father is killed, enemies are trying to kill him, he hides out in a desert hell hole leading a guerilla army before becoming the leader of a jihad killing millions.
Hardly seems the time for levity.

No, you're right. Truth is, I was kind of on the fence about this movie but the poster of Thufir Hawat sold me.

Agreed, this isn't a remake, this is a "do it right".  This will be the next movie I see in a theater.

Still no word on who's playing Feyd.  Sting is too old now, I nominate Ed Sheeran.

I was hoping the Baron and Beast Rabban were more devious/vicious in their posing.  Instead the Baron looks like he has a headache, while Beast Rabban is merely looking down.  The Baron should appear clever and aggressive, while the Beast Rabban should appear crude and dangerous.

Dr Yueh should appear more of a trusting image, as that is his cover during the movie.  Give him an intelligent and friendly face, someone you can come to when you are in trouble.

Thufir Hawat is just looking off to the side, but I'd prefer him looking at the viewer instead.  He is supposed to be a human calculator, so include faint equations in the background, while his expression is calm and his face has no expression on it.

Phineas J. Whoopee: Still no word on who's playing Feyd.  Sting is too old now, I nominate Ed Sheeran.


This is only the first half of the book. Feyd doesn't really have much to do until the second half. They probablly cut Feyd's role to save money. Then, if the film gets it's second half, they cast Feyd and shoot/reshoot scenes he would have been in and recut the first film. And re-release it ahead of the second.

Also, I think Sheeran is too old. Feyd is supposed to be about the same age as Paul, since the original BG plan was to marry an Atreides daughter to Feyd and rejoin the Atreides & Harkonnen bloodlines.

Saw a trailer for this earlier today and not sure yet. While the characters and concepts look fairly good, I just don't see how the original story can given justice when done in a movie format. It needs to be a mini-series in my opinion.

Zendaya is the human version of nails on a chalkboard to me. I'm really hoping that doesn't hinder my enjoyment of the movie, because it looks farking awesome.

phalamir:, compared to whatever the fark Lynch did

He preserved the heart of the story to the best of his ability.  This has always been a book about a cunning man warding off his inevitable death with the humble act of milking a cat.  The rest is drapery.

Maybe, just maybes the poster aren't for you. Maybe they are for people who have been reading the Dune series for years and were excited to see what the on screen representations will be? Shocking I know that you, random douche, are not actually the center of the farking universe.

Oh noes, someone expressed an opinion about the marketing of a movie.  Not about the movie, or the book its based on, but the marketing.

I'm gonna have to risk my health by going to see this in a theater, preferably an IMAX. I was really impressed with Villanueve's  Bladerunner film.

I have very high hopes for Dune.

This is not a remake, this is someone attempting to correct the record.

A remake these days would be when somebody takes a successful movie from 1984, gender swaps all of the characters for no literary reason and then makes a ship movie that becomes an avatar for what is wrong in Hollywood.

This looks well done, well cast and written with the intent of finally getting the story of Dune released as a movie that is respectful of the source material.

It's not like they're releasing Marquee posters for fremen #3 and Sardukar lieutenant.

Each of the characters portrayed in these posters please a significant role in the movie even if their time in the book is limited.
