Although you hold out for Denis Villeneuve’s Dune, now is a great time to revisit David Lynch‘s Dune, the 1984 adaptation of Frank Herbert’s novel that… wasn’t specifically a hit for Lynch.
But even if Lynch himself is no fan of the film, 1984’s Dune is nonetheless fondly remembered by several, and this summer season it is receiving a deluxe edition 4K Ultra Hd launch from Arrow Video!
Here’s every thing you want to know…
“Following a notorious aborted endeavor by Alejandro Jodorowsky in the 1970s, Frank Herbert’s bestselling sci-fi epic Dune eventually designed it to the big screen as the third movie by rising surrealist wunderkind David Lynch, that includes an all-star forged that features a number of of Lynch’s frequent collaborators.
“The 12 months is 10,191, and four planets are embroiled in a secret plot to wrest command of the Spice Melange, the most treasured material in the universe and observed only on the planet Arrakis. A feud among two highly effective dynasties, Residence Atreides and Home Harkonnen, is manipulated from afar by ruling powers that conspire to preserve their grip on the spice. As the two family members clash on Arrakis, Duke Atreides’ son Paul (Kyle MacLachlan, in his display screen debut) finds himself at the middle of an intergalactic war and an historical prophecy that could alter the galaxy forever.
“Though its preliminary reception ensured that Lynch mostly eschewed mainstream filmmaking for the rest of his profession, Dune has given that been rightly re-evaluated as 1 of the most startlingly primary and visionary science fiction movies of the 1980s. Its astonishing creation design and style and visual effects can now be appreciated anew in this spellbinding 4K restoration, accompanied by several hours of extensive reward characteristics.”
