Denis Villeneuve’s Dune is easily one of my most anticipated movies of 2020.
I’m currently listening to the Dune audiobook after many people I trust recommended it to me.
I have to say, it’s not disappointing me so far. It’s basically the precursor of Star Wars.
There are a lot of similarities to make between Dune and Star Wars.
There was a Dune movie made back in 1984 which was directed by David Lynch.
That Dune movie has a bit of a cult following, but I hear a lot of fans of the book claim that it’s not as good as it should have been.
That movie was a complete box office failure.
It was made for $45 million and ended up making just over $30 million in the United States.
It was released at the same time as Beverly Hills Cop and audiences were far more interested in the Eddie Murphey movie.
Anyway, all of that’s in the past and we’ve now got Denis Villeneuve making the Dune movie.
Denis Villeneuve’s Dune has a new logo
This is supposedly what the actual DUNE logo looks like. It uses a lens flare effect to create the “E”. It’s not that one floating around that makes it look like it says “DUNC”. pic.twitter.com/Dcx4N1bdtA

It’s though that this Dune film will be the first part of two, and it’ll star the likes of Timothée Chalamet, Rebecca Ferguson, Oscar Isaac, Josh Brolin, Stellan Skarsgård, Dave Bautista and Zendaya.
However, there are even more incredible actors in this year’s Dune.
Denis Villeneuve’s movie also features David Dastmalchian, Stephen McKinley Henderson, Charlotte Rampling, Jason Momoa and Javier Bardem.
That is a brilliant cast and 2020’s Dune is being directed by one of the best directors working in Hollywood today.
I know that sounds like hyperbole, yet I really do mean it.
When you look at the films he’s made, then it becomes quite clear how good he is.
Villeneuve’s made films like Arrival, Prisoners, Sicario, Incendies and of course, Blade Runner 2049.
I love every single one of those movies, and I’m pretty sure he’s going to make an incredible Dune movie.
Oh yeah, and the film’s logo looks incredible. It was shared via Twitter.
Sorry about that. I got a bit carried away with talking about Denis Villeneuve and Dune.
What do you make of this new Dune logo and are you looking forward to watching Deni Villeneuve’s film?
