Only because I saw this trailer....

And played this deckbuilding-with-a-board game (a genre all the rage in 2020) by made by Paul Dennan, the legend who brought us Clank!

But that's not the first Dune board game...this one is!

Lets come together and discuss speculations for the upcoming movie, and game-talk is also welcome.

    My goodness how could we ever have forgotten to mention the widely acclaimed Dune prequel trilogies, written by Kevin J. Anderson and Brian Herbert.

    Dune is a book I keep meaning to read but then never do.

    Sort of like every book.

    My introduction to Dune was the SciFi Channel miniseries

    I've read the book I think three or four times since, plus all the sequels

    The Dune and Children miniseries are pretty darn good. They had hella budget for them

    Really my complaint about the Sci Fi dune was it really went in for the pulpy sci fi look {Lynch did the proto grim dark look} Also the human butterfly sci fi did vs the slug Lynch did for the navigators
    But I felt it flaked out as I wanted to see God Emperor of Dune and the worm done. I do not know how far they plan on pushing this movie. With the pandemic and such I felt it really threw a wrench into it as months ago when I started to see the merch I saw people hyping up the movie saying it needed to be seen in the cinema.

    The movie likely will end right around the start of the rebellion. It’s meant to be a 2 parter

    Sometimes, the painbox is something I want a prop of.

    It’s bulkier than it appears in the movie.

    Dune Imperium is free on Tabletop Simulator. A scripted version that allows solo play and two-player games is also available.

    It is so weird to me that North America got a big sci-fi movie after other parts of the world. I'd expected to be late to the conversation, as usual, but instead I'm too early. It's very strange.

    This is Denis Villeneuve.

    It breaks my heart, but I understand a lack of faith in American consumers. They probably used international audiences to build up the hype.

    Because people can, will, and are expecting Star Wars.

    I assume it's used to keep you warm during the night when it's likely to be really cold (assuming that real world desert rules apply). Maybe stored in some fashion that's kinda handwavy? It's been a while since I read the book which I recall is a bit more detailed than either film on the workings of the suits.

    Oh there is a thread

    Just saw the new Dune in IMAX

    It is a fucking masterpiece. It's incredible. Genuinely one of the best cinema experiences I've ever had.

    The Fremen travel at night and there are cooler regions on Arrakis since the world-spanning desert is the result of biological processes

    I think they even wear robes and stuff over the stillsuit

    I actually kind of funny feel like going to the theater to see this this weekend

    Might just get a month of HBO Max and watch it on my TV

    Only wish I could get better sound out there

    The process by which sandtrout become miniature sandworms seems to involve the chemical splitting of water

    I have a fan theory that this is the reason why Arrakis has a breathable oxygen atmosphere but it could very well be that Arrakis already had an oxygen-rich atmosphere before the sandtrout arrived

    Alright, OK, I do got one big nitpick about the movie, which I'm just gonna go vent about.
    Feyd-Rautha isn't in it. Guy's like the anti-Paul, one of the other potential Kwisatz Haderach candidates out there, he should've been in the movie. I know he doesn't really become prominent until the second half of the book, but he should've at least have a cameo. Maybe he could've been dismissed by the Reverend Mother instead of the weird spider person creature that was there for some reason.

    Oh well. Maybe Paul's gonna end up duelling Rabban in the end.

    I am going to see this tomorrow with my mum, who hasn't read the book or seen the Lynch film. Those who have seen the new movie, how much do I need to prepare my mum before she sees it, or has Villeneuve managed to make it accessible enough?

    I'm going to see it in VueXtreme, which I think is Vue's version of IMAX, and I'm so hyped, so I'm really glad to read this.

    I saw it with two people who had no idea of the story and they said it was complex but not confusing, and they loved it too

    Guessing they are saving that character for part 2 as that character really doesn’t do much in the first half of the book.

    I made it a third of the way into this on HBO Max last night before my neighbor interrupted me by talking on the phone right outside my door for some reason

    I'm trying to think of I just want to start from the beginning again or not

    The visuals are so freaking cool and stylish and it's good and moody
