Time to start talking about it!

A First Look at Timothée Chalamet in Dune
This is the first look at Timothée Chalamet as Paul Atreides on his native planet of Caladan from this December’s film version of the novel, directed by Arrival and Blade Runner 2049 filmmaker Denis Villeneuve. The 1965 book was so seismic in its influence that its echoes still turn up in sci-fi and fantasy storytelling half a century later. Still, it has stubbornly defied appropriate adaptation itself.

Tomorrow, Vanity Fair will provide an even more expansive exploration of Villeneuve’s quest to bring Dune to the screen, but today we begin with the central hero: Paul Atreides, a child of privilege raised by a powerful family, but not one strong enough to protect him from the dangers that await.

I can't help thinking of Dune to the Star Wars Imperial March:

Dune Dune Dune Dune-da-dune dun-da-dune

I just want to say that the actor playing Paul not only looks like how I -always- imagined him, but man is he a beautiful human, physically at least.

Given how awful BR2049 was, I don't think I'll bother watching this.

There is no Dune but the One Dune and Jose Ferrer is it's emperor.

Sorry, I'll look at this newcomer, but I simply must always hold a special place in my heart for this great actor who delivered this stellar line:

(José Ferrer) "Bring in that floating fat man, the Baron."

Honorable mention:

Alia:
And how can this be? For he is the Kwisatz Haderach!

:D

"The duke... will die before these eyes, and he'll know.... HE'LL KNOW! That it was I, Baron Vladimir Harkonnen! who encompasses his doom! HAAhahahahahAHAhahahhhahhha! [played out by dramatic music]"

that, and only that, ended up on a mixed tape that I listened to often in high school.
For better or worse, it's -seared- into my memory. :D

I love the scene between the Baron and Duke Leto as Leto remembers "the tooth," and the aftermath.

But from the book. The film took most the life from it, and I don't even recall it from the SYFY mini-series.

That movie set my ways to pronounce things until the sci fi channel film. Ironically it also meant I did not pronounce the baron's family name as the finnish name it was a misspelling of ... and then that was changed about the time of reading the first prequel ... and I quickly went back to how I pronounced it before when that character showed his true colours.
