I attended this occasion myself. Here is what you want to know to organize your self for opening evening.
SPOILERS AHEAD: From this level on it is going to be tough to speak concerning the expertise with out spoiling the movie, so when you do not wish to have any particulars ruined, please cease now.
Every little thing revealed on the Dune Imax occasion
This 30-minute presentation is designed to be a sneak peek on the movie, and it incorporates the next:
- The primary 10 uninterrupted minutes of the movie.
- Remarks from the forged on their experiences within the movie and the way they hope the viewers will respect it.
- A scene from later within the movie.

1. The film jumps proper in
The Dune universe is a lot. The size of all the things is ridiculous, its guidelines greater than a bit bizarre, and you would in all probability spend the time it could take to see this movie in its entirety breaking down the galactic politics main as much as the opening scene we noticed at this occasion. However as an alternative of holding your hand by means of all of writer Frank Herbert’s backstory, this movie simply drops you in the course of all the things. You get a short clarification from Chani, performed by Zendaya, about why the planet Arrakis is vital, how ruthless the Harkonnen household are and that instantly they left. There is a query about who the brand new oppressors of Arrakis natives the Fremen will likely be, then instantly you are taken to the bed room of royal scion Paul Atreides, performed by Timothée Chalamet, and his story begins.
As a fan of the Dune universe, I cherished this. No hand-holding, no background, simply 60 seconds of introduction and off we go. I would not go as far as to say it felt just like the introduction you get within the guide, however the feeling of being dropped into one thing that feels impossibly massive is acquainted.
2. The characters’ particular skills are wonderful
I am grouping the entire completely different particular skills you see within the Dune universe as powers for the aim of constructing this level. Throughout all of the completely different scenes included on this preview we get to see Paul utilizing his Voice on his mom Girl Jessica and murderer Thufir Hawat wield his Mentat potential, and there is a one-on-one combat with private shields on. Spectacularly, none of these items regarded or felt the way in which I might imagined they could. In every case, what I noticed onscreen was much more spectacular.
The distinctive audio selections that signify the Voice, the way in which Thufir’s eyes immediately go white as he processes data and the skin-close shimmer of a private defend all made me so excited to see extra of every.
3. Hans Zimmer ‘invented’ new devices for this movie
This was an interesting element from the dialog between Villeneuve and Hans Zimmer. The legendary composer mentioned it was bizarre that epic area movies are at all times scored with music that sounds decidedly Earthly, so he sought to search out new sounds to assist display how alien these planets really are. He did not specify simply how he invented these new sounds, however within the instance scenes, he actually nails a strangeness within the rating.
Zimmer additionally depends on singing, particularly when somebody from the Bene Gesserit nuns is on display. The upper-pitched chanting or soft-spoken girls singing within the background instantly carry a sense of energy and terror to their scenes, which is suitable given all the things they’re able to.
4. All the autos I noticed have been good
I’ve seen many iterations of the Dune autos throughout TV, movie and video video games all through my life, and I’ve by no means felt like all of them match the descriptions within the books. I am unsure the autos on this new Dune film match what’s in my thoughts’s eye both, however they’re undeniably coolest variations I’ve seen thus far.
The Ornithopters in Villeneuve’s Dune are extra dragonfly than hen in design, however they do an incredible job transferring extra just like the animal than a ship, which was the purpose within the books. These small crew ships have been at all times alleged to fly extra naturally than mechanically.
The Carryalls are sometimes described as “like an Ornithopter however greater,” however that is not what you may see on this movie. They do not look dangerous in any respect, however they do not appear to be greater variations of the principle automobile.
Spice Harvesters really feel really huge on this movie. The sheer dimension of them, whilst one is totally consumed by an enormous sandworm, is unimaginable.
Lastly, the Spacing Guild Heighliner now not seems to be like an area ship, and that is nice. The size of those vessels have been typically misplaced in earlier movies and reveals, however this model helps present how insanely massive they’re.
5. These blue, blue eyes
There’s been a whole lot of dialog about whether or not the Fremen eyes have been sufficient. Up to now, their eyes have at all times been offered on display as glowing, piercing, electrical blue. Whereas that appears nice, I by no means felt prefer it did justice to the way in which the eyes are described within the books. Actually, the Eyes of Ibad are described as being blue inside blue, with no white in any respect. I feel that is extra realistically offered on this movie. It feels extra believable that the blue can be intense however not unnatural.
And belief me, on the large display, the blue is blue sufficient to carry the depth when wanted.
Dune is coming to theaters and HBO Max on Oct. 22 and truthfully that is too far-off. Each second of what I noticed final evening was wonderful and left me wanting extra. It was properly assembled and now that the trailer’s on the market on the web, I hope everybody else is even half as excited as I’m to see half one in every of this epic story come to life.
