We had talked about the arrival of the documentary in Italian cinemas Jodorowsky’s Dune a few days ago: here is finally the trailer that presents the work, dubbed in Italian, which we will find in theaters in a few days.
While waiting, now running out, to be able to admire the film adaptation of Denis Villeneuve, here’s what the whole world has been missing with the story of the greatest science fiction film never realized.
Jodorowsky’s Dune: here is the trailer in Italian
The documentary by Frank Pravich will arrive next September 6th in theaters, distributed by Valmyn in collaboration with Wanted Cinema. Jodorowsky’s Dune has been recognized as one of the best-made and most interesting documentaries of recent years since its release in 2013; at the time it was not distributed in our country, and it is therefore the first opportunity for Dune lovers to see it in the hall.
JODOROWSKY’S DUNE documents the ups and downs of this ambitious science fiction film project through the story and memories of Jodorowsky himself and the animation of the film’s original preparatory drawings made by an elite artistic group including the French comic artist Jean “Moebius ”Giraud who illustrated the storyboards, screenwriter Dan O’Bannon (Dark Star, Alien), artist HR Giger (Alien) and science fiction pocket illustrator Chris Foss.
The documentary has a duration of approximately 90 minutes, and has been described, among other things, as “hilarious” and “pure creativity”. While Dune fans can’t help but bite their hands thinking about the missed opportunity, it is worth knowing the story of Alejandro Jodorowsky’s attempt to make the first film adaptation of Frank Herbert’s books. And how, unfortunately, it did not go well.
