The New Dune

If anyone had asked, I would have voted no on remaking Dune.

Okay, yes, the worm could use a CGI update, and I wouldn’t mind a less pestilent, blimp of a baron, but Kyle MacLachlan did a fine job as Paul Atreides. No need to fix what’s not broken—

Say what?

Timothée Chalamet?

Timothée Chalamet from Call Me by Your Name?

Chalamet is the new Paul Atreides?

Can I change my vote?

Coming to a theatre near you—providing we’ve all had our shots, and the movie theatres are safe again—October 1, 2021.

Until then,

you’ll have to settle for this

Paul Atreides action figure.

Amazon won’t deliver Timothée. I asked.

  1. I’m trying to remember when I last saw a film away from home. In a commercial theater, it was probably Batman and Robin, the one with George Clooney. A terrible movie. In a small independent theater, it definitely was Gods and Monsters, with Ian McKellan and Brendan Fraser. A masterpiece of a movie, one of the few that left tears in my eyes.
