About this deal

The UK branch of Universal Studios will release six films directed by David Lynch: Eraserhead (1977), Dune (1984), Blue Velvet (1986), Wild at Heart (1990), Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me (1992), and Lost Highway (1997).

I've said it elsewhere but I'm still (pleasantly) surprised by how well the film has done because it doesnt explain much at all from what I remember of my only watch at the cinema.EDIT: As above, the UK release boasts the exact same, spectacular, Dolby Atmos track as per Warner's European 4K rollout. providing Lady Jessica Atreides with a compelling narrative foundation rooted in her authentic voice.

It's absolutely gorgeous, and on the Big Screen - particularly with its shifting aspect ratio of IMAX enhancement - it had arguably the biggest wow factor of the year.

His depiction of the characters and planet were excellent, although the final 30 minutes seemed rushed. Those colors still pop and look wonderful with natural amber and orange tones in the sand dunes that contrast well with the blue-ish skies above. Perhaps things would have been different had Warner not been so quick off the mark to green light a sequel to complete the story - Dune "Part 1" potentially relegated to the heap of incomplete works where audiences can only imagine what could have been had the directors been allowed to finish the saga (c.

The 4K presentation is superb: the various nuances of Greig Fraser‘s cinematography are brought out in the HDR (High Dynamic Range) presentation, while the added resolution brings out a plenty of detail in the sets and costumes. Dune is available on digital download now and on 4K UHD, Blu-ray™, DVD and VOD on 31 stJanuary courtesy of Warner Bros. Warner's 4K release of Dune is about to hit UK shores, proving identical to the one they've already released in various European territories (including the Italian disc), delivering stunning native 4K DV video and thunderous Atmos sound, as well as a hefty selection of extras on the accompanying Blu-ray.

Now those tech-savy individuals out there can rip the Atmos track from the included 2-D Blu-ray and remux it with the 3-D for their home theater rig, but that’s a hell of a lot of work to get the best of both worlds. Similarly, Baron Harkonnen’s sadistic nephew Feyd-Rautha so famously played in 1984 by a high-out-of-his-gourd Sting isn’t a necessary character until the very end of the book so he doesn’t appear here. The sets, the costumes, the ships…everything is so beautifully and intricately designed – this isn’t a clean glossy future, but one almost medieval in aesthetic.

As malevolent forces explode into conflict over the planet’s exclusive supply of the most precious resource in existence—a commodity capable of unlocking humanity’s greatest potential—only those who can conquer their fear will survive.

V. miniseries and, most famously, a 1984 extravaganza from David Lynch, who made a valiant attempt to make sense of Herbert’s details while offering mainstream audiences a potent dose of his artful insanity. Some classic movies, with strong visuals and sound I like to own in 4K/ultra-HD, I’m glad I paid up for that with this movie.widescreen format, which, for the most part, works, but in a couple of worm shots in particular feels like it's missing some impact in terms of the scale intended. Excellent service from zavvi, always get notified when shipped, and always receive 2 days before initial release, Dune is a magnificent film, well made, well directed, and superbly casted, I highly recommend getting this film. Black levels are strong with brilliant luminous whites, with the subdued sandy/brown color scheme on Arrakis with the cold cool blue shades for the other worlds.
