⊃∪∩⪽ | Legendary | October 22 2021 | Denis Villeneuve | Reviews coming in

Recommended Posts

I thought this was an ensemble sci-fi story, not a "chosen one" thing. That said, pretty great shots and design and I love Denis. We shall see. I wish the trailer focused less on Chalamet and more on the larger story - didn't really sell that this is a big new thing to a general audience.

I love this but that's not surprise ha ha. 

 

Big plus is that trailer is already much warmer than the book. 

 

Smart idea to beef popular faces such as Momoa and Zendaya in the trailer even though they have supporting roles.

 

Everyone looks spot on and Shai Hulud looks great. 

 

Song is awkward, though, but is also hummable. I think it'll grow on me.

 

It gives a good idea what the movie is about so GA should be interested. 

 

Really prettily shot.

If you didn't know what Dune is it would feel like a very generic YA sci-fi trailer. 

THIS! there's been so many "chosen one" young adult films, people are gonna thinks this is the same.

The visuals look incredible, as expected. Everything else looks more generic than expected but have plenty of faith in Villeneuve and this talented cast delivering the goods.

The movie looks great. I'm not sure the trailer will be effective in selling it to general audiences. But online activity is high, it's always trending when something is revealed. There's definitely hype for it, let's see how people receive the trailer.

I don't think that's necessarily a bad thing, they need to sell this to a wider audience which isn't familiar with the original source material.

Looked okay. No idea what Dune is about, but looked like a "Hunger Games chosen one leads rebellion" from the trailer.

Completely agree and we all know that after The Hunger Games,  the GA became tired of this kind of story. Hence why after THG every other book series that tried this flopped.

yeah, the first shots with zendaya are total fanservice for young people

That's literally in the book. Chani is important for Paul's hero journey. The movie depicts it well judging by little snippets.
