dune interview

Denis Villeneuve is one of the most exciting filmmakers working today, and it looks like his hot streak is going to continue with his next big movie.

As of a few weeks ago, the filmmaker behind Arrival, Sicario, and Blade Runner 2049 was still hard at work on Dune, the first part of a planned two-movie adaptation of Frank Herbert’s massively influential 1960s sci-fi novel. But even though he’s in a self-described “sprint to finish the movie” before its December release date due to complications from the COVID-19 pandemic, Villeneuve and several members of the cast participated in a press conference last month, where they unveiled an early look at the trailer and explained what we can expect from this long-awaited big-screen adventure. Here’s what we learned from the event. Read More »

Dune Teaser

Those lucky enough to see Tenet in theaters have been treated to the first footage from Denis Villeneuve‘s upcoming adaptation of Frank Herbert’s classic sci-fi novel Dune. Weirdly enough, it’s actually a theatrical teaser that announces the impending arrival of the full trailer, which will show up online tomorrow, September 9. But since not a lot of people are going to the movies right now, Warner Bros. has provided a different sneak peek at the movie with a Dune teaser that has a snippet of footage and a certain piece of dialogue that fans will be very excited to hear.

Jason Momoa Frosty

I hope you’re ready to celebrate Christmas in July, because we’ve all just received one of the best movie news gifts of the year: none other than Jason Momoa (Aquaman) will be lending his voice to the character of Frosty the Snowman in a brand new movie. And this won’t be an animated movie, like the 1969 Rankin & Bass classic. No, no. This is going to be a live-action Frosty the Snowman film, which has us desperately hoping this CG snowman looks exactly like the real Momoa. Please, Warner Bros., make this happen. Read More »

Momoa will play a vampire who has made a pact to stop killing people while Dinklage will play Van Helsing, the legendary vampire hunter from Bram Stoker’s Dracula.

Every space opera needs a handsome rogue to try to do their best Harrison Ford impression. Many try and fail, but Aquaman star Jason Momoa could just pull it off with his swashbuckling swordmaster Duncan Idaho in Denis Villeneuve’s upcoming sci-fi epic Dune. Momoa is playing the master swordsman who trains Timothée Chalamet‘s protagonist in Villeneuve’s highly anticipated adaptation of the classic Frank Herbert sci-fi novel. He’s a supporting character in the novel, but in the upcoming film, Momoa teases that he will have a greater part and even be rogueish scene-stealer similar to Han Solo in the Star Wars movies.

Francis Lawrence

One of Apple TV’s first major shows, See, couldn’t have been more in director and executive producer Francis Lawrence‘s wheelhouse. The director behind The Hunger Games sequels, I Am Legend, and Constantine is no stranger to expansive fantastical worlds. Created by Steven Knight (Peaky Blinders), See presents a future where sight is a thing of the past. No one can see, which presents the visual challenges Lawrence relishes as a director.

It’s not the first time Lawrence has defined the aesthetic and tone of a show as a filmmaker. He directed three episodes of NBC’s Kings, which was a short-lived but entertaining show that probably would’ve resonated more today, and the premiere of Tim Kring‘s Touch. All high-concept projects. Recently, we talked to Lawrence about the type of material that appeals to him, including See, as well as growing as a director and his most-watched work, Lady Gaga’s “Bad Romance” video.
