The 2021 adaptation of Dune by director Denis Villeneuve did great at its opening weekend, grossing $100 Million at the domestic box office. Dune’s original adaptation, made in 1984 by David Lynch, however, was met with a series of negative reviews. Frank Herbert, the mastermind and author behind the Dune series, was very content with how Lynch handled the complexities of the world of Arrakis.
