Dune remains one of the most anticipated films of the year, and for good reason. After all, we are talking about the title of the creator of such productions as Blade Runner 2049, Labyrinth or New Beginning. We are preparing a great film, both visually and fictionally. But what about the length? How long will we have to sit in the room? Today we got the answer …
Denis Villeneuve, who sat on the Dune director’s stool, in an interview with the French-language newspaper La Presse, revealed that his latest title will last 155 minutes! In conversion it will be 2 hours and 35 minutes. In addition, we learned that the cinematic version will also be the director’s version. Two and a half hours at the cinema is a piece of time. However, I think that the latest work of the director will screw viewers so much that these few hours may not be enough. Fortunately, the continuation of this story is already planned.

Dune is an adaptation of a novel by Frank Herbert. The story presented in the novel that is the first part of the Dune Chronicles takes us into the future on the planet Arrakis (Dune). It contains a priceless raw material – melange, which makes it possible to predict the future, thus avoiding the dangers of space travel. The planet is entrusted to the Atreides, but the Harkonnen overturns. This is how the heroes of the novel become entangled in the whirlwind of politics, religion and the struggle for influence.
