On the 210th episode of Piecing It Together, Josh Bell from Awesome Movie Year returns to the podcast to help me find some puzzle pieces for Denis Villeneuve's years in the making adaptation of the sci-fi classic Dune. It's kind of tough to figure out what inspired a movie that is based on source material that inspired so much that's come since, but we found some great picks. Puzzle pieces include The Lord Of The Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, The Matrix, Dunkirk and Avatar.
As always, SPOILER ALERT for Dune and the movies we discuss!
Starring Timothee Chalamet, Rebecca Ferguson, Zendaya, Oscar Isaac, Jason Mamoa, Stellan Skarsgard
