Tales From The Box Office: How Blade Runner 2049 Became A Cautionary Tale

(Welcome to Tales from the Box Office, our column that examines box office miracles, disasters, and everything in between, as well as what we can learn from them.)It is no secret that Hollywood loves a franchise play in the modern age. The success of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, "Star Wars," "Harry Potter," and "Transformers," among many others, has forced studios to try and do whatever they can to get a leg-up on the competition with recognizable IP that can generate several sequels, if not a...

Movies To Watch If You Loved Dune

Denis Villeneuve's reimagining of Frank Herbert's beloved sci-fi novel "Dune" is already cementing itself as a future classic within the genre. Villeneuve had already shown that he could take beloved sci-fi properties and reinvent them for a new generation with his masterful work on "Blade Runner 2049," and "Dune" boasts a similarly epic scale and intricate world building."Dune" takes place in a distant future where warring clans vie for precious resources.

The Dune Sequel: What Comes After Part One?

The coming of the cinematic messiah that is filmmaker Denis Villeneuve's new version of "Dune" is upon us. While the film naturally takes some liberties with Frank Herbert's 1965 sci-fi novel, it is a far more reverent take on the material than David Lynch's failed 1984 attempt. This new movie shows us scenes, themes, and even whole planets from the classic tome that had previously been unexplored on the silver screen.Of course, if you've seen the movie by now, you know that it starts with the t...

Dune Director Denis Villeneuve Is Not A Fan Of Post-Credit Scenes, Says Theatrical Release Is His Cut

If there's one indisputably positive result that the Marvel Cinematic Universe can be held responsible for, it's the fact that these superhero movies have successfully trained audiences to sit through several minutes of lengthy credits after the final cut to black. Not everyone actually pays attention to the names of the invaluable crew members who poured blood, sweat, and tears into the entertainment we all take for granted, sure, but it's something at least! Clearly, the allure of post-credit ...

Dune Ending Explained: The Spoilers Must Flow

Francis Villeneuve's "Dune" covers only part of Frank Herbert's eponymous sci-fi book (that's why the full title of the film is "Dune: Part One," after all). We knew all this going into the movie, but even with that knowledge, the ending leaves a lot of unfinished threads, especially for those who aren't familiar with Herbert's source material.Here's a breakdown of the ending to Villeneuve's "Dune," including what it sets up for "Part Two," which we're cautiously optimistic Warner Bros. will gre...

David Lynch's Dune Is Better Than Its Reputation Suggests

Denis Villeneuve's "Dune" exists in the shadow of not just Frank Herbert's massive sci-fi tome, but also David Lynch's infamous adaptation that arrived in 1984. Universal Pictures, executive producer Dino De Laurentiis and his production company Dino De Laurentiis Corporation were all hoping that Lynch's take on Herbert's epic would be the next "Star Wars." It wasn't. The adaptation bombed at the box office, and in the years since its release, Lynch has all but disowned it. When extended cuts wi...

Rebecca Ferguson Says Her Dune Voice Was Basically 'Donald Duck Sounds'

In "Dune," Rebecca Ferguson's character, Lady Jessica, is a member of the Bene Gesserit, a quasi-religious order of space witches that can exert mind control over people using the Voice. Not to be confused that with the reality show, "The Voice," which undoubtedly has its own brainwashing effects.This new "Dune" movie, which bills itself as "Dune Part One," gives the Voice an almost frightening sound, like the telepathy of a demon or dark puppeteer. The kazoo-like quack of Donald Duck might not ...

Dune Star Jason Momoa Is Honored To Be Working With Denis Villeneuve [Interview]

Jason Momoa is a spirited action hero. Even when he simply walks into a room in "Dune," he does so with as much bravado as when he takes out a room full of enemy soldiers. Playing the great warrior, Duncan Idaho, Momoa brings swashbuckling fun to Denis Villeneuve's massive art film. The adaptation of Frank Herbert's "Dune" is an uncompromising, tangible vision that the actor is, obviously, thrilled about.Duncan Idaho is a role that's familiar and new for the "Aquaman" and "See" star.

Dune Director Denis Villeneuve Thinks Star Wars Peaked With The Empire Strikes Back

Here's The Dune Glossary For The David Lynch Adaptation Of The Sci-Fi Epic

"Dune" hits both theaters and HBO Max tonight, but this isn't the first time someone brought Frank Herbert's sci-fi tome to the big screen. Back in 1984, David Lynch wrote and directed a "Dune" adaptation starring Kyle MacLachlan. The hope was that the film would be the next "Star Wars," and sequels were planned. But Lynch's "Dune" was a box office flop, grossing only grossing $30.9 million against a $40 million budget. But in the years since its release, Lynch's take on "Dune" has become a kind...

Denis Villeneuve Explains Why He Insisted On Dune Being Framed As 'Part One'

If you haven't heard, the movie we've all been calling "Dune," based on the classic science-fiction novel by Frank Herbert, actually bills itself as "Dune Part One" when its title first appears onscreen. Director Denis Villeneuve originally wanted to film Part One and Part Two back to back, but that didn't happen, and over the last year, there's been some concern over whether or not moviegoers would ever get to see "Part Two" of "Dune."While critically well-regarded, Villeneuve's last film, "Bla...

Why David Lynch Decided To Adapt Dune

Denis Villeneuve's highly anticipated adaptation of Frank Herbert's "Dune" is almost here, which makes it the perfect time to revisit the other "Dune" film adaptation, directed by surrealist maestro David Lynch. Lynch's "Dune", released in 1984, is something of a mixed bag; it was a critical and commercial failure but has gained a small cult following over the years. So how did the man who directed the gonzo, avant-garde "Eraserhead" and then the heartwrenching "The Elephant Man" end up taking o...

The Oil Must Flow: How Does Denis Villeneuve's Dune Deal With The Book's Middle East Inspirations?

In Frank Herbert's "Dune," several imperial forces wage war over a precious resource that can only be found in a single location, while the natives of that land reap none of the benefits. In the seminal 1965 sci-fi novel, that resource is the hallucinogenic drug known as the "spice" melange, but it doesn't take much reading between the lines to see that "Dune" is about oil.Like oil, melange is a highly valued resource without which an entire empire would collapse. Like the oil-rich Middle East, ...
