I don't criticize or get upset at anyone for not going to the theaters right now. There's a segment of the population who simply doesn't feel comfortable being around strangers right now and that's totally fine and understandable. If you're paying for HBO Max and feel more comfortable being at home, then great.

and of course I know there's others who simply dislike the theatrical experience and think it's inconvenient and expensive.
It is inconvenient and expensive, but I still think itís the best way to see a movie.
Like Tom mentioned I prefer to go early on a weekend.

I will see this at least once theatrically in either IMAX or Dolby Atmos after previewing it on HBOMax. Better to start small and then go big IMO. Since it's up to the WB/HBO brass to determine whether or not it's a hit, and they're obviously kind of miffed at having to pay out so much on the movie already to avoid legal problems, I would say the chances of this moving forward with the necessary budget is slim. Maybe if any of us wins Powerball we can put up some money someday.

I don't know JoBlo but JoBlo's JimmyO loved it. Written review and here's his video review below. Neither struck me as major spoiler territory. The way he pronounces all the names, etc. is really weird, though.

The review is 00:00-6:28 and the rest is the two Dune trailers:

Glad to see his skin cleared up after 37 years

Late Brando would have been perfect for that role.

Orson Welles was supposed to play the role in Jodorowsky's version. He would have been appropriate...

This review gives me some hope. This is from a guy who is admittedly a sci-fi geek but had not read the books. He said he was able to follow the plot easily and would love to see another entry.

Theatrical exhibition is not going away. Not in the next few decades, anyway. Even aside the bigger screen/better sound argument, people just like to leave their home to go to an event. There's always a need for different, but not too different.

Brando could have played Beast.
