Viewing “Dune” From The Outside – Will It Be Enough For A General Audience?

Four years ago, Denis Villeneuve announced he was directing a live-action adaptation of Frank Herbert’s 1965 novel Dune. Previously adapted by David Lynch with the 1984 Dune movie (to tepid response), Dune is a grand space opera and a classic among science-fiction fans. Set in the year 10191, it centers around the House Atreides, a noble family amongst several in an intergalactic, neo-feudalist empire.
