Dune (1984) movie artwork

Director Denis Villeneuve claims his new take on Dune will be totally different from David Lynch’s 1984 movie. While Lynch is the celebrated filmmaker behind movies and television shows such as Mulholland Drive, Blue Velvet and Twin Peaks, Dune is often considered his weakest directorial effort.

With Dune the director had to condense Frank Herbert’s epic novel down to a 2-hour experience, but despite some stunning visuals, his adaptation is commonly regarded as a muddled mess. Lynch has since disowned the film, rarely speaking of it in interviews. The film was taken out of his hands by producers during editing, and the experience turned him away from working on big budget studio movies.
