Dune The Alternative Edition (V.2)
***This version has been replaced by Dune: The Alternative Edition Redux released in July 2012***
Broadly, the intention with the Alternative Edition is to improve storytelling and flow by preserving what I believe are the best elements from both official versions of the film, while also integrating some newly available deleted scenes.
The Alternative Edition does not claim to be a director's cut. It is also based more on the Extended Version of Dune than several other available fanedits. In this and many other respects the Alternative Edition is a significantly different take on the film.
I have used Herbert's novel and the 6th and 7th drafts of Lynch's original script as a guide but have also taken my own liberties with the material.
