From release/information:

Well, you've done it again, managed to take a single thing and overproduce it. This is the extended edition which, if we remember correctly, is not the original edited by the studio version, nor is it the edited for television version but the version edited by the producers after those two had pretty much flopped. Yes, we know that Dune is a complex story and we could forgive the length if the director actually attempted any of the complexity but, really, how much time do we really need to spend watching sand blow across the screen. And the voice over? What were you thinking? Okay, once maybe, at the beginning, but we got really tired looked at McLaughlin's expressionless face while listening to his thoughts. We liked the worms and the fremen and the witches and the spice aliens but the Harkonens, the mentats and the emperor we could do without. Who knew it would take so long to get from one end of a desert to the other?
