‘The King’ at the Venice Film Festival

‘The King’ premiered yesterday at the Venice Film Festival. You can see images from the premiere and photocall in the gallery and the press conference video below. Some reviews have also surfaced from Variety, Vanity Fair and many others.

Handsome is the wrong word for this actor. He’s beautiful, and the camera drinks him in. “The King” gives Chalamet one of the choicest roles he’s had, but when you take an actor who looks like this and cast him as a young king, it’s not just about how fascinating the role is — the film is capturing the elevation of his stardom. And Timothée Chalemet, I predict, could be the biggest movie star of his generation. As he demonstrates in “The King,” he’s got it — not just the talent (though he’s a superb actor), but the ability to fix an audience with his stare, so that even when he’s doing nothing much at all, what he’s looking at or thinking about becomes the story the movie is telling.

I think what works about the performance, really, is the earnestness. Chalamet is eager to do a good job, just as Henry is when he finally decides to shape up and reign over the land blessed by St. George.

‘Dune’ pushed back to December 2020

According to Collider, ‘Dune’ has been pushed back from its release date of November 20, 2020 to December 18, 2020.

Warner Bros. has delayed Dune by one month, moving Denis Villeneuve‘s starry epic from Nov. 20, 2020 to Dec. 18, 2020. The studio has also confirmed an IMAX release for the film.

As of now, that puts Dune on a collision course with Sony’s Uncharted movie starring Tom Holland, Steven Spielberg‘s musical West Side Story, and Paramount’s Eddie Murphy comedy Coming 2 America, which will almost certainly move now.

Finally, Warner Bros. will unveil an untitled event film on Nov. 20, 2020, so it will be taking over Dune‘s old date. No word on what that project may be.

Timothée Chalamet stars in Dune alongside Josh Brolin, Javier Bardem, Oscar Isaac, Rebecca Ferguson, Dave Bautista, Stellan Skarsgard, Charlotte Rampling, David Dastmalchian and Zendaya.
