Director Denis Villeneuve has explained why his Dune films will never indicate the inside of the Spacing Guild’s spaceships. Located on the best-selling sci-fi epic by Frank Hebert, Villeneuve’s recent modification provides as the third attempt to bring the fan-favorite tale to the screen, having been predated by David Lynch’s 1984 Dune film and a 2000 miniseries. Following the story of Timothee Chalamet’s Paul Atreides, Villeneuve’s firstly movie includes approximately half the narration in the original 1965 romance, with the second part slated to begin filming next year.

Praised for its stunning visuals and epic ability of flake, since Dune: Part One was simultaneously released in theaters and on HBO Max last month it has garnered an impressive $355 million at the worldwide box office. Meanwhile, during its streaming release, it was estimated to be viewed by over 1.9 million US households and was reportedly the most-watched streaming film in the first three weeks of its freeing. Within a week of its US release, Warner Bros. officially greenlit Dune: Part 2 with plans for an October 2023 release.

With Villeneuve currently deeply involved in pre-production for the second film, he recently spoke with Empire about his plans for the most apprehended sequel. When asked about his portrait of space travel in the first cinema, Villeneuve admitted that he “tried to keep all the space-traveling as inexplicable as possible.” He also went on to suggest he would never go on to reveal the interior of the film’s spaceships. Check out his comments below 😛 TAGEND

I tried to keep all the space-travelling as mysterious as possible, like approximately making some kind of mysticism or sacred relationship with that one of the purposes of the movie. Everything involving infinite is just evocated and terribly mysterious…

I insisted that we will never go inside the spaceships. Dune is really a project that was, for me, focusing entirely on Arrakis and the Fremen planet, and are concentrated on the ecosystem of countries around the world. It’s a storey that is very anchored. It’s not a fib about space-travelling. It’s so[ much] more beautiful when we don’t see.

Despite being applauded as one of the most influential sci-fi tales of all time, there is little doubt that Dune constitutes several difficulties for filmmakers who have been given the daunting chore of adapting it for the big screen. While the previous attempts have apparently fallen short of doing the original fiction right, Villeneuve has clearly approached his adaptation with an appropriate reverence for the source material coupled with a keen awareness of what will and won’t work on screen. The director’s decision to keep his movies “grounded” and focus on the planet of Arrakis, which is also known as Dune, is laudable, and by leaving space travel mysterious and mainly unseen, it also allows him to help manage the scope of a legend either already enormously bulky in its epic sort. It is too a decision that resonates Herbert’s own preference to suppress the presence of technology in his novel in favor of exploring the politics of humanity.

While it seems that followers will never get an opportunity to see inside Dune’s interstellar spacecraft , no doubt there will be much more to captivate their scrutiny as Dune: Part Two planneds Paul’s capabilities as they begin to manifest themselves and he receives himself regarded as the Fremen’s prophesized messiah. Given the stunning visuals provided in the first film, it will probably that Villeneuve has much more in store for supporters when the sequel affects theaters in 2023. Certainly fans of this year’s Dune will appreciate and patronage Villeneuve’s unique approach and imagination forDune 2.
