The first trailer for Denis Villeneuve’s Dune was released this past week and the fans loved what it had to offer. It got fans incredibly pumped up about seeing the movie and it can’t get here soon enough!
Well, a fan has created a cool video for you to watch that gives us a side-by-side, shot-for-shot comparison between the trailer for Villeneuve’s Dune and footage from the 1984 film adaption from David Lynch.
The video “is meant to show the variety of choices made by two different groups of filmmakers 36 years apart when adapting the same written work.” It’s pretty interesting see, so check it out!
Here’s the official synopsis for the upcoming movie:
A mythic and emotionally charged hero’s journey, Dune tells the story of Paul Atreides, a brilliant and gifted young man born into a great destiny beyond his understanding, who must travel to the most dangerous planet in the universe to ensure the future of his family and his people. As malevolent forces explode into conflict over the planet’s exclusive supply of the most precious resource in existence—a commodity capable of unlocking humanity’s greatest potential—only those who can conquer their fear will survive.
Dune is currently scheduled to hit theaters on December 18, 2020.
