Is it better than the theatrical? It’s up to your personal preference. It adds about 30 minutes of new footage but the overall film is still problematic because of all the issues during production.

It was mentioned by somebody in the know on Twitter that the US distribution rights for it have been rescinded but no reason was given.

The TV miniseries version was edited by people who had never seen a movie before and had zero understanding of even the most basic film grammar.

My steel book has just shipped from Diabolik. Doc screwup aside, I’m hoping to see good things from this 4K.

Cracked and got this one. I have to admit, if you have a good 4K tv and surround sound system, this is a pretty damn good production.

Announcement from Koch Films:

Dear DUNE fan, maybe the news about our DUNE - Ultimate Edition has already reached you via our social media channels. We would be happy to provide you with the latest information here:

The cover of the edition is final. DUNE will appear in a noble acrylic glass box, decorated with foam and velvet paper. We apologize that you haven't heard from us for a long time. We have had a hard time finding a service provider who meets our quality standards 100% with this special edition. But we have found what we are looking for and are still working flat out on the Ultimate Edition. Unfortunately, this also means that we have to postpone the edition's release day to February 10, 2022.

BUT: All fans who have ordered an Ultimate Edition in our shop by October 10, 2021 will receive it before Christmas. Why? Our manufacturer, which we commissioned for this edition, has only limited production capacities available. That is why it will deliver to us in two batches, which enables us to send the Ultimate Edition to the first pre-orderers before Christmas.

Are you waiting for further editions due to the DUNE postponement? Due to the pending Dune Edition, you may be currently waiting for further editions that are part of this order. Of course, the postponement of the Dune Edition does not mean that you have to wait for these editions until Christmas. We will send them to you in the next few days as a partial delivery, of course free of charge. We can promise you: The additional waiting time for the DUNE - Ultimate Edition is worth it! At the same time, of course, we hope for your understanding for our decision and the delay. We are aware that your pre-orders gave us a great leap of faith, which we of course want to fulfill in the best possible way.

Please note: If you have any further questions about your order, please contact our customer service directly by email at [email protected].

Many greetings,
Koch Films

Watched my DUNE 4K Steelbook copy (on XB1 X) and NO problems at all. Now I'm halfway the first commentary.
