HBO max is definitely stick to Dune theatrical run , the trailer further confirm that. 

 

I misread it and you now confirm it remains the same. I'm only worried how it will affect Denis nomination cause supposedly new AMPAS rules make hybrid releases ineligible for Director nomination only. Massive BS. I don't know what they are thinking. :rant::censored:

 

I'm not worried about boxoffice cause we've seen that streaming doesn't hurt boxoffice all that much. GvK did well on both. Where there's interest, there's viewership.

I'm not convinced streaming didn't hurt GvK. Sure it did well but how do we know it wouldn't have done even better without streaming? And especially if the virus situation globally is better in October, streaming will definitely hurt.

I think only DGA has this rule. AMPAS still allow day-to-date release. So that won't affect Dennis chance that much.

 

As for box office, I will be very disappointed if this make similar number as GvK.

That looks like every modern failed sci-fi movie stitched together. Enders Game, Jupiter Ascending, Valerian, John Carter, Power Rangers... 

 

I'll watch it but whatever.

I don't know by how much Dune will be impacted by HBO max but for sure HBO max won't help its box office run

I mean.... there is a reason for that.  Most sci-fi movies in the last 50 years is a rip off of Dune on some level including Star Wars.

That's the same excuse they used for Valerian looking same-y.

That trailer really didn't need to be thee and a half minutes long. I hope that doesn't become a trend.

 

But yeah, looks suitably epic. I suspect the two jokes they chucked in were in fact the only jokes in the whole movie, but I see why they were included.

 

I'd still be surprised if this makes a lot of money.

No it doesn't. It affects his ability to get a DGA nom, which might have an impact but a disqualification like this is unprecedented and a WGA disqualification hasn't prevented writers from winning screenplay so who knows?

Ah, OK. Thanks. Well, DGA never goes 5 for 5 with AMPAS so he could get nominated without DGA nom.

I'm really not seeing how you're getting John Carter or Valerian from the trailer, considering one of the main compaints is the muted color pallete, which could not be more different than those movies.

Yeah I'd like negative and mixed reactions to elaborate more. I'm super biased cause I'm a Dune fanatic so I'm genuinely curious what people who aren't thrilled with this presentation see.

The orginal Dune flopped at the box office. This may not be that bad but I can't see it being a big hit.


This should have been an HBO series   where box office doesn't matter.

Dune mini was a big hit on cable TV in the aughts. So it isn't like that people don't get Dune but that Lynch didn't make it appealing. Kinda like Bakshi cartoon and Jackson's trilogy. One didn't fly the other one did.

Great trailer and great reactions all over the internet.

 

This is not going to bomb, i'm not expecting huge numbers considering the new variant and HBO Max, but it is going to do well. This trailer not only is acessible for GP, but also screams "see it in theaters", and have enough action, romance, even some jokes. 

 

The BR2049 comparissons should die here, these movies aren't similar at all.

I think that's a tad disingenuous, but either way if this movie is on par with BR2049 then good  - I'll enjoy it a great deal.

Where are the colors? This looks so bad, I am sorry. 

Also, movie seems very convoluted. I am familiar with Dune and will probably watch the movie but marketing is not giving anything exciting to me. 

 

This aside, Jason Momoa is a scene stealer. Zendaya is nice. Don't care about Timmy.
