Watch Rock God Hans Zimmer Perform The Dune Score Live Today Warner Bros. has released a just over three minute video of a live performance of the Academy Award-winning soundtrack to "Dune," with composer Hans Zimmer himself on electric guitar (and the sound mix board) -- and oh my gosh, I want to see this group perform the entire thing. I will give you all my monies.

Denis Villeneuve's "Dune" has been nominated for a whopping 10 Academy Awards including best picture, and rightly so. I have a deep and unabashed love for this film, which is interesting since I don't love the book. I do have great respect for the worldbuilding, but the film just moved me in a way that Frank Herbert's novel didn't.

Adapting Frank Herbert's sprawling sci-fi saga, "Dune," is nothing short of a Herculean task, and Denis Villeneuve succeeded in doing the same with the help of screenwriter Eric Roth. Roth is a major player in the screenwriting arena, having adapted numerous books for the screen, including "Forrest Gump," "The Insider," and "Munich."
