Four decades after its premiere, David Lynch‘s 1984 sci-fi cult classic Dune is finally receiving a 4K SteelBook Blu-ray release in anticipation of Denis Villeneuve‘s take on the film arriving later this year.
Based on Frank Herbert’s novel of the same title, the epic is set in the year 10,191, where four planets are fighting over a precious resource named Spice Melange, found only on the planet Arrakis. The story follows the feud between two dynasties: House Atreides and House Harkonnen. As the two clash on Arrakis, Duke Atreides’ son Paul “finds himself at the center of an intergalactic war and an ancient prophecy that could change the galaxy forever.”
In addition to the film itself, the new release will also come with a whole roster of bonus content, including a 60-page book discussing the movie, a double-sided poster with commissioned artwork, a documentary on the making of the film called Impressions of Dune, a range of deleted scenes, featurettes focusing on costume design and special and model effects, and even interviews with Paul Smith and other production members on the team.
The 1984 Dune 4K SteelBook release will arrive August 30, and you can pre-order it now over on Arrow Films’ website for £30, or roughly $42.
