Frank Herbert's highly acclaimed 1974 sci-fi novel Dune, first adapted by David Lynch in 1984, is stunningly realised in this four-and-a-half hour miniseries produced by the Sci-Fi Channel.William Hurt stars as Duke Leto Atreides, charged to rule the desolate planet Arrakis, the universes only source of Melange, a spice that enhances mental performance and makes interstellar travel possible. But soon Leto's bitter enemy, the evil Baron Vladimir Harkonnen (Ian McNeice), a former ruler, wins back Arrakis and hands power to his brutal nephew, Rabban. When the Atreides family escape into the inhospitable desert with the help of the Fremen - a race of displaced desert nomads - the strengthening power of Melange enables Paul (Alec Newman), the Duke's son, to organise the oppressed Fremen and wage war on the Empire.Unfolding over three compelling feature-length episodes, this sci-fi classic is brilliantly realised through powerful performances and stunning visuals from Oscar-winning cinematographer Vittorio Storaro (Apocalypse Now).
