Maybe I don't know how to use imdb anymore but a search for 'Dune 2021' shows no release date... yet.
NOTE: Its release is a "hybrid" release.

Again and again I find I'm lonely or among very few who really likes the Lynch version.

Now, if there are some cineasts among you, you might find this piece of cinematographic history fascinating. Lynch's version really started before he took over. He wasn't even in the picture. It was a project that a much, much liked, almost cultish director Alejandro Jodorowsky wanted to make and he picked non other than HR Giger to do the props. The project stopped only after a lot of artifacts were made and some money already went into it. It needed to be finished as they believed they will save some money that was invested.

This is why I simply loved the design and although I see many people hate this version it left a deep impact on visuals of later adaptations. (In fact, people who really love Lynch, hate this movie and people who don't care for Lynch often like this Dune)

Personally, I was even satisfied with how Sting played his role (otherwise I'm not a big fan). The Baron (Kenneth McMillan), Duke Leto (Mr. Prochnow), Linda Hunt, Leonardo Cimino Paul L. Smith...

Must have seen it for a thousand times. There's a documentary on this version.

It's been out for more than a month already here in the Netherlands and many other European countries.

It's well worth the watch!
Sorry USA here.
I didn't know there was such a large gap based on geography. I thought this stuff all came out around the same time.

Nah, you're not the only one. I quite like the Lynch version as well, although it seems a bit awkward and dated nowadays, it also had at times some special feel that fits really wel with the story.

Saw it yesterday and thought it was great. At some points I enjoyed the music, which is unusual for me when it comes to Hans Zmmer schlock.

I agree about the atmosphere. I don't mind dated movies, I'm not that much into effects, but I think the design is superb.

I apologize in advance if the question is off-topic.
Did you have any [ummm...] consternation about [ummm...] having to wear masks?
I have not come to terms with a 2-hour soirée with peeps that I don't know in a cooped-up place.
