Quoting John:

> I have high hopes for it! But I do wonder, who would win in a fight, Paul
> Atreides or Neo? Lol
> John  ;  )

That would depend on if the confrontation happens in the Matrix or  
outside of it, before or after either of them goes blind, and whether  
there is any talking or negotiating allowed or if it is simply an  
all-out fight.

If they engaged in a blood-lusted brawl within the Matrix, I don't  
think that Paul would stand much of a chance against Neo. But I think  
the inverse would hold also, so that in real-time Neo would get his  
ass handed to him by Paul.

Paul being blinded or Neo being blinded would make the fights a little  
more fair within their preferred domains and even more uneven outside  
of their preferred domains.

No matter where the confrontation happens, if any talking or  
negotiating is allowed, Paul Atreides would probably end up using a  
combination of the voice, other memory, and prescience to convince Neo  
perform missions for him like the Oracle does in the Matrix movie,  
only in a more assertive and direct fashion.

I agree that the trailer looks good, Max. :)
