Entertainment Weekly has a new feature on ‘Dune’ which is accompanied by some great new photoshoot images which you can see in the gallery.
Villeneuve signed on to direct Dune in January 2017, just about a week after earning a Best Director Oscar nomination for Arrival. This did not escape the attention of then up-and-coming actor Timothée Chalamet, who made the most of the fact that he and Villeneuve each had movies on the awards circuit (Call Me by Your Name and Blade Runner 2049, respectively) later that year.
“Every room I was in with him, I’d try to put myself in his eyeline or just try to make him familiar with me,” Chalamet, 25, recalls. “He hadn’t seen Call Me by Your Name yet, but once he did he asked me to come meet him at the Cannes Film Festival where he was president of the jury, which did not feel casual at all. So I went out there and just had one of the coolest meetings ever with him, where I felt he was already treating me as a potential collaborator.”
Following yesterday’s premiere of ‘The French Dispatch’ at Cannes, there was also a photocall earlier today. You can see images from that in the gallery along with a new photoshoot.
A new clip from the film has also been released and you can see that at Vanity Fair or below.
Timothée’s Cadillac Lyriq commercial which will air during Super Bowl tonight has been made available online. In it, Timmy plays Edgar Scissorhands, son of Edward Scissorhands. Winona Ryder also appears in the commercial reprising her role from the original movie. You can see the commercial below and some screencaps, stills and BTS images in the gallery. Edit:Vogue also has a short interview about the commercial along with a couple of photoshoot images. So go check that out as well.
Document Journal has released their interview with Timmy on their website along with gorgeous new photoshoot images which you can admire in the gallery.
When Chalamet first stepped in front of Hedi Slimane’s lens in 2014, he was all but unknown—the lanky, 17-year-old blueprint of the star he was to become. Today, Chalamet is one of the most recognizable faces in cinema, with projects running the gamut from period dramas to sci-fi epics. In David Michôd’s The King, he was the reluctant heir to the English throne; in Greta Gerwig’s remake of Little Women, he breathed life into the boyish, lovesick Laurie, while her solo directorial debut, Lady Bird, saw him assume the ostentatiously suave posture of the dirtbag boyfriend; and in Felix Van Groeningen’s biographical drama Beautiful Boy, he depicted the emotional turbulence of a teenage meth and heroin addict’s painful path towards recovery—one that feels all the more heart-wrenching in the midst of America’s opioid crisis.
In the years since his rapid ascent, Chalamet has made a point to establish himself as an artist first and foremost, taking on unconventional roles in independent projects. But when he and Slimane reunited in Saint-Tropez, Chalamet had just emerged from shooting his first major studio film, Denis Villeneuve’s reboot of the sci-fi epic Dune, a story that has renewed relevance in our political moment. “The battle of tribes and cultures [in Dune] is unfortunately extremely pertinent to the world today,” Chalamet tells Document. “I think there are many contemporary parallels with the world we live in.”
There’s a lengthy new cover issue about Timmy in the new issue of GQ. You can read that at the link, view the photoshoot images in the gallery and see a short behind the scenes video about the shoot below.
The day after the Oscars in 2018, everything that had changed, changed back again. Timothée Chalamet had spent the previous months becoming known. He had acted in a film, Call Me by Your Name, which was critically acclaimed as well as an instant object of cultish admiration—and his performance had made him, at 22, the youngest person nominated for best actor in 80 years. He had, simultaneously, been transformed into the rarest of pop confections—fawned over by younger women, older men, and every demographic in between. And he had traveled without pause on the awards circuit since early autumn, back and forth from New York and Los Angeles, practically living out of the first-class lounge and the lobbies of the Bowery Hotel and the Sunset Tower.
