Dune (Featuring Josh Bell)

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.

Puzzle pieces include The Lord Of The Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, The Matrix, Dunkirk and Avatar.
