I kind of wish there was a blu-ray release of Dune the extended edition with a 5.1 sound mix available. This version is much shorter. The extended edition has a large quantity of deleted and extended scenes in the extras too, which further flesh things out. Lynch wrote a movie script for the next book as well, which never made it to film. I've read that the cut of Dune which Lynch made is still in his vault...5 hours long or so? Might never see the light of day.
Laurentis studios were originally working with Ridley Scott for this film. The script he was working from was written by the author of the book: Frank Herbert. Scott quit the project when his brother died unexpectedly of cancer. Probably would have been a much different movie.
