‘Jodorowsky’s Dune’ Trailer Promises A Real Feast For The Imagination

Jodorowsky's Dune

The latest trailer for the upcoming documentary Jodorowsky’s Dune has premiered. You can check it out here below.

Directed by Frank Pavich, Jodorowsky’s Dune takes an exhaustive look at the development and collapse of what is considered the greatest film never made – an epic adaptation of Frank Herbert‘s classic sci-fi novel Dune helmed by the Chilean surrealist filmmaker responsible for such mind-melting cult classics as El Topo, The Holy Mountain, and Santa Sangre – through contemporary interviews with Alejandro Jodorowsky, Star Wars producer Gary Kurtz, Drive/Only God Forgives director Nicolas Winding Refn, and many more.

Here’s the official synopsis of the film:

Through interviews with legends and luminaries including HR Giger (artist, ALIEN), Gary Kurtz (producer, STAR WARS) and Nicolas Winding Refn (director, DRIVE and ONLY GOD FORGIVES), and an intimate and honest conversation with Jodorowsky filmed over the course of three years, director Pavich’s film – featuring never-before-seen realizations of Jodo’s mind-blowing psychedelic space opera (animated by Emmy Award nominated Syd Garon) – finally unearths the full saga of ‘The Greatest Movie Never Made’.

I have a particular fascination with this never-realized Dune feature, and back in July I wrote an article about it entitled Alejandro Jodorowsky and ‘Dune’: The Story Of The Greatest Sci-Fi Film Never Made. So this documentary is pretty high on my list of films to see this year.

Jodorowsky’s Dune opens on March 21, 2014.

    So if it “collapsed”, why is there a trailer?
    Why doesn’t the trailer show clips of the movie?

    Just further proof that it would have been a Beautiful and God Awful Mess.

    LSD tripping and good Sci-Fi do not go hand in hand.
    And it’s obvious when the director says he’s never read that book but heard it was good that all the people who keep mentioning this as the GREAT WHAT IF scenario would have been terribly disappointed.

    Nuff Said.

    The trailer is fir the documentary not the film itself.

    The header says “trailer”, and I assumed movie. The print below, which I glossed over, does say it was for a documentary. I missed that.
    Still, it sounded like the movie “collapsed”.
    And still no clips from the movie, which to me is more important. Unless it hasn’t been finished yet?
    (fingers crossed)
