Fans of science-fiction films may be happy. The reason is that Dune can be watched in Indonesian cinemas starting Wednesday, October 13, 2021. Denis Villeneuve’s film is probably the most anticipated film of the year.
There are many films based on novels in Hollywood. However, adapting Frank Herbert’s 1965 novel of the same name, Dune , seems difficult. Efforts to work on the Dune film have actually been carried out by two other directors.
Quoting from The Crimson , Wednesday (10/13/2021) , Dune in his book is a vast story, filled with foreign vocabulary such as ‘landsraad’ and ‘Sietch Tabr’, very complicated to narrate let alone cast into the big screen. However, the talented director Denis Villeneuve as well as a commendable auteur seems to have succeeded in translating this complexity.
Really curious how the effort that radiates from this film. Alongside a cast like Timothee Chalamet and a star-studded production team, Dune also offers the artistic touch of a true filmmaker.
Here are a few reasons why you should hit the theaters to see Dune, right away.
The entire trailer is filled with images of Denis Villeneuve’s trademark. the most attention-grabbing is probably the iconic giant sandworm. This sand worm deserves attention because Villeneuve designed this giant creature for a year in improving anatomy to skin texture.
In addition, there is a battle practice scene between Paul Atreides and Gurney Halleck (Josh Brolin), Paul’s mentor and bodyguard. The scene looks simple, but is visually very attractive. Introducing the Holtzman Shield, a protective energy shield that wraps around the body and creates projectiles such as bullets and bench lasers using VFX.
Jason Momoa who plays Duncan Idaho also looks very good at fighting choreography. Villeneuve himself said that Jason was a beautiful fighter.
“He was like a ballet dancer. He loved it and he was very good at it. He was elegant, very precise and he was very generous.
Duncan Idaho is a cross between a samurai and one of the best knights in the galaxy, also known as a beautiful man,” Villeneuve said in an interview as reported by Atom Tickets.
She added, “He’s someone when you get the feeling that (the hitting gesture) you want to get behind the guy. You know he’s going to protect you.”
