Dune (Special TV Edition) Film Poster


This re-edited television version of David Lynch's sci-fi epic - which includes a new prologue and 35 minutes of extra footage - so displeased the director that he had his name replaced by the industry pesudonym of Alan Smithee. Ten thousand years in the future, the planet Dune is home to the sandworms, mile-long creatures which guard the priceless spice Melange. Enabling travel through time and space, Melange is regarded as a rare prize, and it is for this reason that galactic warrior Paul Atreides (Kyle MacLachlan) leads his people into battle against the evil Harkonnens in order to gain control of the planet.
