The Official Trailer for ‘Dune’ Is Here!

It’s getting closer. Dune‘s time is almost upon us and I know for a fact it’s going to be one of the biggest events of the year. The official trailer dropped today and here’s a note; if you’d rather stay in the dark about the story then I really would refrain from watching this trailer because it shows a lot. But nevertheless, here’s the official trailer for Dune.

Epic. That’s all I can think when I see this trailer. It’s going to be an epic experience in IMAX. One that will remain in my heart for years to come.

I’m glad I watched the old Dune movie from 1984 because I can actually look at this and see things that I recognize which is really exciting, to be honest. This looks like a faithful reboot of a story that deserves to be seen on the big screen these days.

The hype is real.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a lovely day.

Watching ‘DUNE’: A Research Project

Oh my goodness, my friends, I finally watched Dune. I’ve been ultra-fascinated with this science-fiction epic since I started seeing details of the much-needed reboot being made by Denis Villeneuve coming out early next year. However, yesterday, my sister and I decided to do a little research (and thus spoiling ourselves of the plot) by watching the original Dune movie from 1984 and we were flabbergasted…and not in a good way.

As I watched the film unfold I found myself jarred by the incomprehensive storyline that seemed to weave and pounce on my senses with information and exposition that left me reeling. On more than one occasion I would rub my head and ask aloud, “What is happening?” And that is exactly what is wrong with this 80s’ cult classic.

It isn’t the story that was bad. In fact, the story was actually kind of amazing. It was the adaption of this story that was so jacked up.

Names, planets, and other important tidbits seemed to be thrown at me nonstop and at so quick in succession that I just couldn’t follow. It felt like a story that needed at least four hours to be half-explained correctly had been crammed into ONE movie, leaving me drained and overwhelmed by the film’s underwhelming conclusion.

And can we talk about Chani?!

Fan Art Wednesday

Today, there’s a change of content…slightly. Every week I share my sister’s digital artworks but this week I’m sharing a little more of what she can do.

Here’s a traditional pencil sketch of Timothee Chalamet’s Paul Atreides from the highly-anticipated reboot of ‘Dune’. I’m excited. My sister is excited. We don’t know anything about this story but we love science fiction so we figure we’re going to have a blast.

The Trailer for ‘Dune’ Is NIIIIICE

Okay, first off I’d like to announce that I’m one of those people who has no idea about Dune‘s story. I’ve managed to garner a bit of an idea of what is going on in this film through my father’s small details of the movie and the synopsis provided but besides that…I’m in the dark.

Thankfully, this three-minute-long trailer still didn’t give me an idea of what this new (and very epic looking) story is about and I am ready for it. Here’s the trailer.

‘Dune’ Gets an Official Image featuring Timothee Chalamet and an Official Logo

Last year it was announced that Denis Villeneuve would be rebooting the epic 80s’ science-fiction film, Dune, modernizing it with a brand new cast that is totally STACKED. Here’s the link to that post: The Dune Reboot Is Stacked to the Rafters With Talent.

With so many movie premieres and productions being delayed due to COVID-19 it almost seems like the entertainment world has come to a complete halt. So imagine my surprise and excitement yesterday when the first image and logo for Dune arrived to grace the internet and bring joy to all of us who are missing the movie theater experience. I was ecstatic and now I’m eager to share with you the photo and logo.

This first official image, featuring Timothee Chalamet as lead protagonist Paul Atriedes, is simple but already looks like something that will be awesome to see in IMAX. Denis Villeneuve is a visually provocative director, providing an epic feast for your eyes with his utterly gorgeous films. I don’t know anything about Dune but I’m ready for this ride.

And just to make things better, here’s the logo. I’m in love with this design. Now we must simply await the first teaser trailer. Ooh, I’m excited!
