Dune: Jason Momoa talks about the extended edition of the film, which lasts from 4 to 6 hours

While fans of Frank Herbert and the director Danis Villeneuve are anxiously awaiting the arrival of Dune in theaters, Jason Momoa, one of the many Hollywood stars featured in the film, is already thinking about an extended edition of the film.

Is there an extended edition of Dune?

In a recent interview with the NY Times, Momoa hinted that the version of the film that we will see in theaters is only a small part of all the film shot by the Canadian director, which we know will last 155 minutes.

Little thing if we think that, as explained by the actor himself, an extended version of the film (which we do not know if it is a preliminary version of the montage or a true and proper extended edition) has a duration ranging from 4 to 6 hours.

It was a great movie to watch on the big screen”Said Momoa during the interview. “And do you know what they have to do? Distribute the 4/6 hour version of the first part. We need to be able to watch the 4/5 hour film as if it were a television series; I want to choose when to see it all in one go“.
