Nope, and apparently it’s never even been edited properly to that version as Lynch had essentially walked away by that point. There’s the three hour extended version, but that’s it
Must be hoping that Zendaya will bring some of the Spider-Man audience. Or at least that part of it that isn’t neckbeard “not my MJ.”
The Wiki page says the voice overs were part of the attempt yo make a 2 hour cut so in fairness they wouldn’t be in a long version.
Real shame he refuses to even look at another cut although if this version is good I guess it won’t matter.
I love the Lynch version, it’s a fantastic but epic failure.
The 3 hour TV version is shockingly shit. I really hope the new one is fantastic, it’s my favourite book.
There’s good stuff in there but they’re all just far too long for me. As with a lot of sci-fi, the short stories set in the same timeline are better than the bloated novels. The joke about burial at C is great though.
I’ve only read Dune (currently rereading) how many of the other books are worth reading? I’ve heard that Messiah and Children of Dune are as far as I should go…
Children of dune is as far as is go. I think I hated the rest.
The fourth, God Emperor Of Dune is pretty standalone, so you could read that, although I do remember it being pretty dull. The next two, Heretics and Chapter House, build towards a concluding volume that was never written so there’s no resolution at all, and no real need to bother reading them. Then are a whole host of other books written by Frank Herbert’s son (“written” in the sense that his name is on the cover) and King Of The Hacks Kevin J Anderson. I’ve assumed they are terrible.
Basically, yeah, stick at Children Of Dune.
I only watched the first Dune when I was much younger, but liked it a lot then. But I think even then I noticed the FX were really quite ropey.
I think this is the right place for this thread. This is a good discussion about sci-fi and gender and how the wider aspects could be considered more thoroughly when creating worlds and societies.
