    To be honest, that is kind of universal with most Sci-Fi operas.

    Just because is in 2 parts it doesn't mean they will be divided by the exact middle.

    I've never read Dune, but Villaneuve is in charge so I am optimistic I'll enjoy it.

    It's my favorite book, the amount of times I read is not healthy. It's amazing how it influenced so many things.

    They're doing that with things these days to get more mileage from them I think. Like, look at what they did to the Hobbit, and the Hobbit is a way shorter book than Dune was.

    Well, the first Dune movie would have been like four hours if it hadn't been cut, and the later TV adaption was also split in like four parts. It makes sense, it's a very long and dense book.

    What do you prefer, for them to cut like 60 to 70 percent of the book to make a 90 minute movie, or to make 2 long movies that can show the story properly?

    To be fair, Dune is just so much internal monologue. It really isn't good source material for filming, but Villeneuve is a good guy, I'm sure he'll do a good job.
