FilmDune (1984) and Dune (2020) Trailers Side-by-Side

So it had to happen – a trailer comparison between the original Dune released in 1984 and the Dune 2020 trailer released a few days ago.

So far it looks like they have a lot in common, but I’m sure that once the second movie releases, it’ll be obvious how much content Denis Villeneuve has included in his version.

Kyle McLachlan did a pretty good job of his character portrayal of Paul “Muad’ dib” Atreides, but there’s something about Timothée Chalamet’s portrayal that seems more in-line with the book.

What do you think of this comparison? Taking into consideration the original film was made in 1984, how do you think it compares to the newer footage?
