‘The King’ had its British premiere last night at the BFI London film festival. You can see images from the event in the gallery and some videos interviews below.
‘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.
The movies to screen at the Venice Film Festival have been announced and ‘The King’ is one of them. Read more at Variety.
“Seberg,” starring Kristen Stewart as actress Jean Seberg, will screen out of competition, as will David Michod’s Netflix title “The King,” an adaptation of several Shakespeare plays with an ensemble cast including Timothée Chalamet, Robert Pattinson, and Lily-Rose Depp.
Timmy is at the San Sebastian Film Festival in Spain right now and today there was a photocall for ‘Beautiful Boy’ with him and the film’s director Felix Van Groeningen. You can see images from that in the gallery. You can also see a video from the press conference here or below.
‘Beautiful Boy’ premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival last night and Timothée was in attendance. You can see images from the premiere and after party in the gallery. He also attended the IMDb studios earlier in the day and you can see images from that in the gallery as well, along with a video here or below. Some reviews have also popped up and you can read some highlights below.
In these scenes and others that find him lashing out at his astonished father, Chalamet once again illustrates an uncanny ability to merge with whatever the material demands of him. A far cry from the sexually adventurous teen of “Call Me By Your Name” or the obnoxious boyfriend of “Lady Bird,” he buries his hunky features under a messy mop of hair and a malleable expression. His face is a Roschach test of emotions, melting from grimace to eerie smirk as the character contends with the invisible processes of a shattered brain.
No matter how many times you look at Timothée Chalamet’s face, it always surprises you. He’s the rare actor you could call handsome and beautiful at the same time, and his pale stretchy features seem to wrap themselves around the emotions he’s feeling — or, in this movie, the lies he’s telling. In “Call Me by Your Name,” Chalamet had a marvelous directness, but in “Beautiful Boy” he’s transformed — he makes Nic, in his muffled millennial James Dean way, skittery and self-involved to the point of being a little disconnected.
The film is most interesting when it simply provides the opportunity to watch Chalamet. In his clean interludes, Nic is a lovely kid in every way; you’d never suspect there was a demon hiding inside him that would periodically take control of the slim body housing it. But then, of course, actors love the opportunities to go deep into madness and obsession. Chalamet is no exception but, in truth, he’s more exasperating and not as interesting in hooked mode as he is as a promising bright young thing. This guy should stay clean.
As for Chalamet, he continues to be one of the most exciting young actors working today. He plays Nic not like a caricature of an addict, but someone with a unique history and specific personality that’s being drowned by his drug habit.
Timothée attended the BFI London Filmestival a few days ago to promote ‘Call Me By Your Name’. You can see images from that in the gallery along with a press conference video below. Two new clips from the movie were also released yesterday and you can see those below as well.
After attending the festival, Timothée is back at work on the untitled Woody Allen movie and you can see some new set images from yesterday in the gallery.
In other news, Timothée is to be honored with a Breaktrough Actor award at the Hollywood Film Awards. Congratulations to Timmy!
