Denis Villeneuve Retrospective
Revisit 'Arrival', 'Sicario' and 'Blade Runner 2049' on the big screen — and dive into the director's early gems, too.
Eventually, Denis Villeneuve's version of Dune will reach cinemas. Thanks to the pandemic, it's been a long time coming — but those sand worms and spice wars will hopefully be worth the wait. Until then, Dendy Newtown has a very fitting way for film buffs to pass the time, all thanks to a retrospective focusing on Villeneuve's past flicks.
One of the reasons that this new take on Dune has everyone so excited is because the filmmaker behind it has quite the impressive resume. You've likely already seen and loved Blade Runner 2049 and Arrival, because Villeneuve has dived into sci-fi before. You may have done the same with Sicario and Prisoners as well. Now, you can watch them again on the big screen between Thursday, November 18–Tuesday, November 30 — and check out Oscar-nominee Incendies, too.
The lineup also spans two movies few folks in Sydney will have had the chance to see in a cinema before: the Jake Gyllenhaal-starring Enemy, which is a weird and dark delight, and the stunning Polytechnique, which is based on shocking real events. And, rounding out the program are August 32nd on Earth and Maelstrom, so you'll truly be getting the full Villeneuve treatment.
