Default Dune trailer

I can not believe it took me 'til now to see this.

The link is the youtube release of the trailer for the forthcoming Dune film:

I sat transfixed and open mouthed.

Probably be one helluva a cinematic experience.

I detect that the Lynch film was used as the basis, with an updated snarkiness of ... a young adult drama?

Someone noted that the trailer is almost shot for shot the same as the Lynch trailer.

That is correct. There will be 2 movies for the book.

If the Hobbit had 3 films to be told, Dune probably should have had 3 also.

Did you catch the song playing in the background in the second half of the trailer? If that is actually in the movie, whoa!

Apparently the first attempt at a cinema version was going to commission Pink Floyd for the soundtrack, and this is a reference to it.

The trailer looks good.

And did I see ornithopters that actually ornitho their pters?
