Question: At the end Paul makes it rain on Arrakis - wouldn't this harm the sandworms? If so, it seems like a mean move on his part, especially considering the role they played in his coup.
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.
Question: How much of a difference is there between the David Lynch version of this film and the Allen Smithee one?
Question: Admittedly the sound on my copy of this movie is lacking somewhat but when Paul is researching Arrakis and Gurney et all enter I swear I can hear the trailer for the movie playing in the background. Am I correct on this?
Piter De Vries: I imagined many pleasures with you. It is better perhaps that you die in the innards of a Worm.
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".
