SciFi legend Dino De Laurentiis dead at 91


If you watched any major SciFi, fantasy, or genre movie in the mid-70’s and 80’s, Dino De Laurentiis is a name that would be familiar to you. He produced some of the biggest movies fanboys love. Dune, both Conan films, Evil Dead 2, Army of Darkness, Barbarella, and Flash Gordon. He was even responsible for the 1976 King Kong remake, which some people would best like to forget. But that one did give us the original Kong part of the Universal Studios Tram Tour. Dino De Laurentiis died today at the age of 91 and a legend has passed.
