Fri Oct 07, 2005 3:44 pm

After numerous red herring's, David Lynch's Dune: Extended Edition will now officially street on January 31, 2006. The 2-disc set will include both the original theatrical version (137 minutes), plus an all-new "extended version" (177 minutes) in anamorphic widescreen video, with Dolby Digital 5.1 audio. Extras are expected to include deleted scenes with introduction by Raffaella De Laurentiis, 4 behind-the-scenes featurettes (including Designing Dune, Special Effects, Models & Miniatures and Wardrobe Design), a gallery of production photos and production notes. There is no official word from Universal as to whether or not Lynch himself participated.

Tom -

For me, Dune was a film with some good bits, but they just didn't hang together to make a complete whole.

So many people to keep track of !

And such a complex story !

Probably best left as a book.
