Mary Anne Butler
Mary Anne Butler (Mab) has been part of the fast-paced world of journalism since she was 15, getting her start in album reviews and live concert coverage for a nationally published (print) music magazine. She eventually transitioned to online media, writing for such sites as UGO/IGN, ComicsOnline, Geek Magazine, Ace of Geeks, Aggressive Comix (where she is still Editor-in-Chief), Bleeding Cool (where she was News Editor), and now NerdBot as News Editor. Over the past 10 years, she’s built a reputation at conventions across the globe as a cosplayer (occasionally), photographer (constantly), panelist and moderator (mostly), and reporter (always). Interviews, reviews, observations, breaking news, and objective reporting are the name of the game for the founder of Harkonnen Knife Fight, a Dune-themed band with an international presence. Though she be but little, she is fierce.

Dune” is completely and utterly MY “Star Wars.” It is easily my favorite book series (only second to maybe Anne Rice’s Vampire Chronicles), and the 1984 David Lynch film remains the pinnacle of the story for me.

When it was announced that Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary were looking to Denis Villeneuve to bring the tale of the Atreides and Harkonnens back into theaters, I was beyond ecstatic. As the casting lists were revealed, as the score was shaping up, my expectation has been set monumentally high for this.

Then, the photos started rolling in. These in particular from Vanity Fair are gorgeous, and very telling in their reveal of character, setting, and costume. (Although admittedly, I’m super disapointed with what I’ve seen of the stillsuits thus far- things I can get on Amazon right now? Really? What gives!?)

Zendaya as Chani





Cut to this morning, and another brand new photo released of two-time Oscar nominee Timothée Chalamet as young Paul Atreides, in what looks like the training room on homeworld Caladan.

This image appears in the current issue of Empire Magazine, out now

Doesn’t Paul look a little….Han Solo to you?

Anyhow-

Set on the planet Arrakis, we find ourselves exploring the story of two warring galactic royal families House Atreides and House Harkonnen. When Duke Leto Atreides is assassinated, his son Paul and wife Lady Jessica escape only to be adopted by the Fremen, who becomes Paul’s personal army against the Harkonnen as he develops powers from the spice, a substance that extends life and powers interstellar travel. A tangled web of royal intrigue is revealed with the Emperor and other cosmic powers pulling the strings while attempting to erase house Atreides.

I await with baited breath for a trailer. Shai Hulud.

Dune” has a release date of December 18th, 2020.
