Revealing mistake: During the invasion of Dune by the Harkonnen, a Sardukar soldier throws a guard from what appears to be the palace's wall. When he hits the ground all the bodies around him bounce as if they where lying on some sort of cushion. (01:09:50)

Trivia: David Lynch was disgusted with the elongated cut of the film which includes paintings of the 'robot revolt' back story to the original film, a sub-plot he deliberately omitted. He demanded his name be removed from the credits of the film and replaced with the Director's Guild nom de plume, 'Alan Smithee'. This was done so sloppily, by superimposing Smithee's name over Lynch's, that the credit reads "A ALAN SMITHEE FILM".

Question: What's the relative timeline of this movie? It's stated that it starts in the year 10,191 but there don't seem to be any other dates besides that.

Answer: The entire DUNE universe is much more complicated than any movie. For a relatively useful timeline, see www.smirnov.demon.co.uk/Arrakis/timeline.htm.
