You may know the Timothée Chalamet/Zendaya Dune that swept that nation, but what about the first film iteration of the prolific Frank Herbert novel? David Lynch attempted to ride the sandworm into Dune success in 1984, what resulted is a mind bending, classic 80’s CGI, spice induced ride. Following Kyle MacLachlan’s Paul Atreides, David Lynch’s Dune tells a slightly variant narrative on the dessert planet of Arrakis, one you won’t want to miss on the big screen.
