While the latest trailer of Dunes did nothing but increase the already high hype for the film Denis Villeneuve, a video which compares, scene by scene, the original film by David Lynch of 1984 with what will soon arrive in cinemas all over the world.
Dune 1984 compared to Dune 2021, scene after scene
Thanks to Cinepolls we are able to retrace the troubled 80s film, comparing it with the scenes recovered from the various trailers, which arrived online in the last two years, of the new adaptation of Dune.
And I don’t know if it’s because I’ve been waiting for too long for the new blockbuster to arrive in cinemas but, after taking a look at the video below, I feel the desire to once again review the work of David Lynch who, alongside the new Dune, it looks so much better than I remembered.
Here is the video:
Dune texture and details
Set on the planet Arrakis, we find ourselves exploring the story of two warring galactic royal families, the House of Atreides and the House of Harkonnen. When Duke Leto Atreides is assassinated, his son Paul and wife Jessica escape only to be saved by the Fremen, who become Paul’s personal army against the Harkonnen as they develop powers from the spice, a substance that extends life and makes possible the interstellar travel.
