Josh Brolin Shows Off the Dune Set in a Video Shared on Social Media

Josh Brolin shot a video showing off the set of director Denis Villeneuve’s Dune, and as you can see, it looks like the landscape of the story you’d image. It seems like a pretty awesome place to shoot the movie. I like how Brolin describes it aa an “ancient space.”

There’s an incredibly talented team of creative people working on Dune, and I have no doubt that this team is going to deliver an amazing film adaptation of Dune.

Check out the video below:

Production Begins on Denis Villeneuve’s Dune and Hans Zimmer Will Score The Film

Production has officially started on Denis Villeneuve’s adaptation of Frank Herbert’s Dune, and it’s been announced that Dark Knight and Inception composer Hans Zimmer will create the film’s score. Hans and Denis previously worked on Blade Runner 2049, so it makes sense that they would want to work together again.

Zimmer is a master composer and I love the scores that he has created for the films that he’s worked on. It’ll be cool to see what he ends up delivering for this one.

We also have a new synopsis to share with you that came from a recent press release:

Dune Remake Begins Shooting, Official Synopsis Released

Dune Remake Begins Shooting, Official Synopsis Released
Cameras have started rolling on Denis Villeneuve's Dune remake. In addition, a synopsis has been released for the upcoming movie. Production is taking place in Budapest, Hungary, and in Jordan. Villeneuve has the goal of making the ultimate adaptation of Frank Herbert's classic source material, which has proven to be difficult for other directors in the past. David Lynch famously brought his version of the story to the big screen in 1984 where it bombed and received negative reviews.

Denis Villeneuve has his work cut out for him with the Dune remake and all eyes are on him and the giant cast that he has assembled to help tell the story. As for what we can expect from the first installment. Villeneuve plans on making at least two movies and predicts it will take two years of work to pull off. You can read the official synopsis below.

Oscar Isaac Throws in Bid to Play Solid Snake in Metal Gear Solid Movie

Oscar Isaac Throws in Bid to Play Solid Snake in Metal Gear Solid Movie
Oscar Isaac is quickly becoming one of the biggest names in Hollywood. And that makes sense considering the man has a starring role in the past three Star Wars movies. That kind of gig gets you noticed. Isaac is attached to a couple of big-time upcoming projects (which we will get into further below) but now that the man has become one of the heaviest hitters Hollywood has to offer, what upcoming movie does he want to be a part of? How about Kong: Skull Island director Jordan Vogt-Roberts's Metal Gear Solid as Snake?

Yep, turns out that's exactly the role Isaac would love to tackle next. While participating in IGN's cast roundtable for Netflix and director J. C. Chandor's Triple Frontier, Isaac was asked which video game-turned-film he would want to be a part of, and Oscar Isaac was quick as Hell one the draw making sure

Charlotte Rampling: ‘Depression makes you dead to the world – you've got to build yourself up again’

The actor on her new film, Hannah, 2016’s ‘racism’ row, her silence on #MeToo and learning to care for herself

Charlotte Rampling is sorry for being late. She arrived at Gare du Nord in time to catch her train from Paris to London, but when she got there, she realised she had left her passport at home. She has just moved, she explains, to a new place in Paris, the city in which she has lived for decades, and nothing is where she expects it to be.

“When you move, it’s quite disorienting. You don’t quite know where you are.” Not that she is in any way ruffled by the train fiasco. It is hard to imagine her being ruffled by anything. She needs a minute to put her bags down, she says, as she checks in at the hotel, then I should come up to her room and we can talk.

Hannah review – quietly haunting portrait of an upturned life | Peter Bradshaw's film of the week

In this often wordless drama, Charlotte Rampling brings an intelligent intensity to the role of a woman whose ageing husband has been jailed

Experiencing the formal, compositional chill of this film is like opening the door of a freezer cabinet and putting your head inside. The Italian film-maker Andrea Pallaoro directs and co-writes, and the star is Charlotte Rampling, whose performance won her the Volpi cup for best actress at the Venice film festival two years ago. It is the portrait of a lonely, unhappy life and the action is almost wordless, in a series of scenes often recorded by fixed camera positions that (for a while) withhold from the audience the full truth of what is happening. It is perhaps inspired by Chantal Akerman’s 1975 film Jeanne Dielman, 23 Quai Au Commerce, 1080 Bruxelles.

Hannah (Rampling) lives alone in a modest apartment in Paris, her face an enigmatic mask. In fact,

Chalamet will become the second actor to bring Paul Atreides to the big screen after Kyle MacLachlan, who starred in David Lynch’s cult 1984 adaptation, and during an interview with Am to Dm (via Dark Horizons), MacLachlan has shared his thoughts on the upcoming remake.

“I’m curious to see what happens, you know, he’s [Denis Villeneuve] getting together a great cast obviously, really talented people. It’s a challenging piece of material to try to bring to the screen, so I wish him luck with that, if anyone can do it, he’ll do a great job. He’s a terrific filmmaker….The book, I’m kind of a nerd about the book.

The Berlinale hommage to the always outstanding Charlotte Rampling who also received an Honorary Golden Bear, was concluded with a long and lugrubious movie, ‘Hannah’ (2017).‘Hannah’, photo Courtesty of Parade Deck Flms

In its pacing and depiction of a solitary woman, it recalls Chantal Akerman’s Jeanne Dielman, 23 Quai du Commerce, 1080 Bruxelles, but the crime in this story is of her husband and she is left to deal with her life as the movie goes through her mundane existence, step by painful step.

Hannah drops her husband off at prison, where he is to begin serving a sentence. She then stoically goes about her life, household chores, working as a cleaning lady for a rich family, and taking part in an amateur theater group in the evenings. But signs pointing to an abominable crime by her husband accumulate, and Hannah begins to feel the pressure — people turn away from her
