DUNE: The Insanely Complete 3-Hour Fan Cut HD

Woah! How did I not know about this!! While this piece of news is not directly related to my big new Dune Games section tributing all known Dune related games and mods I have to post about this incredible discovery!! A Superfan has painstakingly cut together his own 3hr cut of David Lynch’s epic original 1984 Dune film. I love the Dune film but the theatrical cut is too short and weird and confusing. The extended TV cut makes much more sense but has very poor visual quality and is filled with cheap repetitive cuts of the same ships.

Well this talented fan has fixed that! You can see the differences right away just in the first 15mins of the film! He’s inserted even more rarely seen deleted scenes and cut out some of those awful extended version repeat shots (eg their constant use of a Harkonnen ship for ever other factions flying scenes lol). He’s used the recent high quality re-release of the extended version (instead of the god awful vhs copied to dvd release we’ve had for years) so the quality is pretty darn great!

You can find out more information and download his beautiful HD version 3.0 release from his website here:

UPDATE 1: Grrr Vimeo has taken his video down for breach of copyright. The author is currently working on finding a new home, as well as an even better HD quality cut. This is his facebook page if you want to keep an eye on his progress.

UPDATE 2: Sadly a bunch of annoying people seem to be targeting this excellent fan cut just because they prefer some other cut that’s closer to the books instead of David Lynch’s vision. Why can’t both exist? I do not understand why some people want to cause so much trouble for the author of this as he should be praised for his hard work.

UPDATE 3: I noticed this old post is still getting a lot of traffic and that the old download link wasn’t working in 2018 so I contacted the creator and he’s given me the download link to his amazing latest HD version 3.0 video that painstakingly uses all possible HD sources for his cuts making it far superior to the old version 2.0 cut that was popular a few years back.

  1. Thanks for this download link for the torrent!
    I looked for it everywhere on the internet! You are a life saver!
    Also, I completely agree with you. I don’t see why many versions can’t exist peacefully.
    As a Dune fan, I can’t get enough so the more the better 🙂
    Cheers!
