    I absolutely cannot wait for this. I love everything Villeneuve does.

    Pretty stoked that I know absolutely nothing about this world and story going in. I have the book. Should I read it before watching the film, or would the movie be a good enough introduction? Not sure I'll get to have a cinematic experience like this again in my lifetime, but the book would of course be the full story with no compromises.
     
  5. Definitely read the book

    Yeah especially considering the second movie might never get made, everyone should just read the book before seeing it

    I'd put chances of a sequel at 90%

    Yeah, I hate even talking about it, because I do think that person brought up a valid point where it feels like all of the discussion around this movie is focusing on it's box office performance and nothing else.....

    .....buuuuuuut also it is a fact that this looks to be an insanely expensive adaption of only part of Dune with the second part's existence riding on the box office performance of this one. They are kind of asking for it.

    In my ideal world, this movie will be a massive financial success and we'll get to see the sequel, but I think realistically I put it at about 50/50 odds right now more like what Anthony is saying that we ever get to see the second part.

    Back in the day whenever people would refer to The Lord of the Rings books as impossible to adapt for the screen, in my head I always said no, that would be Dune. LOTR is a pretty straight forward story and never struck me as overly difficult to bring to the screen. Fantasy just hadn't been taken seriously on screen in a few decades. The trick with LOTR was just treating the story with respect and getting someone to foot the bill. With Dune, yeah there is the Paul storyline, but the book is so much more than that. I don't know how a lot of that stuff gets brought to the screen in an entertaining way that makes for a good movie, while simultaneously giving the moviegoing masses what they want out of large blockbuster movie.

    Blade Runner 2049 is one of the greatest sci fi films in decades and one of the best sequels ever made, and nobody went to go see it in the theater. This movie very well could he a huge financial success, but it is by no means a slam dunk that this is gonna connect with audiences on the level that it needs to.

    I remain extremely worried that this movie won’t connect with the masses. Especially given it’s already starting at a disadvantage like every movie is now with COVID. I was already fearful it would be a huge flop prior to the pandemic, now I’m even more concerned.

    Also the reason why everyone keeps talking about it in terms of the box office is because *we all want the sequel to get made*. It’s not that hard to figure out lol

    I mean, I know we already all knew this, but seeing them all smushed together like that really just reinforces it: this cast is STACKED.
