Dune Part Two

This weekend, I managed to make it to London despite the best efforts of the train companies, and headed down through the city to the BFI IMAX to see Dune Part Two. This is the largest screen in the UK, and also the only place to see a 15: 70mm film projection in true aspect ratio. I've been waiting for this book for almost fifty years. Denis Villeneuve has done a wonderful job, although there are quite a few changes, which purists don't like of course. The venue was epic as always, and the image was even 'bigger' than when we saw 'Oppenheimer' - you frequently had to look down at the image as well as up. The screening was sold out. There was a nice introduction from a staff member, and the film was excellent. More on my Geography on Film blog.
