Children of Dune from Warner

Warner Vision have announced the UK Region 2 DVD release of Frank Herbert's Children of Dune for 22nd September 2003 with a retail price of £39.99. Based on the second and third books in Herbert’s revered Dune series, Dune Messiah and Children of Dune, this adaptation is a screen debut for both titles.

This six-hour interplanetary epic is the follow-up to the critically acclaimed mini-series - which previously aired on the Sci-Fi Channel - and begins twelve years on from its predecessor with the House of Atreides now ruling Dunes arid planet, Arrakis. Academy Award winner Susan Sarandon stars as Princess Wensicia, heading a stellar cast, some of which make a welcome return to earlier roles including Alec Newman as Paul Atreides, Julie Cox as Irulan Atreides, Ian McNeice starring once again as Baron Harkonnen and PH Moriarty returns to the role of Gurnev Halleck.

Additions to the original cast include a host of prolific stage/film actors including Edward Atterton (The Man In The Iron Mask) Steven Berkoff (The Krays) and Star Trek Voyager’s Borg Queen Alice Krige.

With a running time of 4 hours and 12 minutes the DVD also has a 13-minute ‘making-of’.
