The Canadian director’s film has inspired artist Posuka Demizu to make his own version of the Arrakis universe.
Dune has inspired multiple artists. From David Lynch, who brought it to the big screen in 1984, to Denis Villeneuve, the director of the most recent film version. Now, Posuka Demizu, manga illustrator The Promised Neverland, has looked at the universe built by Villeneuve to create his own piece, which has generated all kinds of positive comments, including that of the director himself.
Denis Villeneuve has been impressed with the work of the Japanese. “There is something very special about using gravity as a dynamic way to improve drawing. I think it is very beautiful and poetic … It is very meaningful to me that other artists can be inspired by my work and incorporate it into theirs. I consider it a beautiful gift“, says the director, according to ScreenRant.
The aesthetics that Villeneuve has managed to give Arrakis is one of the most outstanding aspects of the film. The director worked very hard to bring the Frank Herbert universe to the big screen. He’d read the book as a teenager, so he’d spent decades imagining how House Atreides, Paul’s visions, or the spice-filled desert surface of Dune might come to life.
‘Dune’: from the deepest desert to the Norwegian Sea. These are the actual locations of the movie
The team traveled the world to find the right place to tell the story. From the Norwegian Sea to Abu Dhabi or Jordan’s Valley of the Moon. With small pieces from here and there they managed to create an impressive world for the Atreides, Harkonnen and Fremen. Timothée Chalamet, Jason Momoa, Rebecca Ferguson, Oscar Isaac, Zendaya, Javier Bardem and Josh Brolin are some of the names that make up the cast.
Dune premiered in Spain and other European countries on September 17, more than a month before its arrival in theaters in the United States and China. This early release to try to curb piracy due to its release on HBO Max is paying off very well and the film has already grossed $ 75 million.
All eyes are on the number it achieves at the box office, since that depends on whether there is a second part. Rumor has it that Warner is waiting to see the results on HBO Max to give the green light to the sequel, but few doubt that it will come out ahead. The millions of viewers who have already come to see it are looking forward to the new adventures of Paul Atreides, Lady Jessica and the Fremen.
