Timothée Chalamet To Star In Denis Villenueve's ‘Dune’

Timothée Chalamet To Star In Denis Villenueve's ‘Dune’

Whoever is managing Chalamet's career needs a raise.

Shit from Lady Bird, Call Me By Your Name and now this. I feel like he was just discovered and now he's the hottest name in Hollywood.

If I had to write a fake headline that'd make this sub collectively shit themselves(ourselves), I don't know if I could do better than this.

"Denis Villeneuve, Christopher Nolan and Quentin Tarantino join forces to publicly execute Rian Johnson and Zack Snyder. Timothée Chalamet and Jake Gyllenhaal and Ryan Reynolds (in a Deadpool cameo) set to star in a dramatization of the events, scripted by Taylor Sheridan."

New Look at Shazam.

I like it. I really do. Shazam is a kid in a grown man's body, so I love the goofy look from it.

I hope they release publicly the trailer they'll show at SDCC.

looks nice, the costume is unusual, not like most modern outfits of superheroes today, but like an old classic from the golden age.

Movie magic?🤷🏾‍♂️ it’s all about those angles and lighting. Those suits are designed to be seen in motion in front of a camera so most of the times for a photoshoot it always hit or miss.

This kinda looks like a Seaworld ad. Like a sexy Seaworld ad.

Not enough Orcas.

He looks like he's about to start rapping for a PSA.

deserved

Well I fuckin hope so

Blade Runner 2049 (and Blade Runner, for that matter) is one of the best looking films of all time with no superfluous camerawork. There shouldn't have even been a debate!

Feels a little late to be handing out awards for 2017.

UNCHARTED - Live Action Fan Film (2018) Nathan Fillion

Ah taking the Ryan Reynolds approach I see. Nice work

That's pretty cool. Would watch a feature length for sure.

I know it's 'fan made' if you can call it that from Fillion and Lang but just looked too much fan made for me

Way cooler than I expected! Stephen Lang as Sully even!

Nathan Fillion just posted this on his Instagram, they made a short on an Uncharted movie, he has been my dreamcasting for the longest time, he always seemed to be perfect for the role and has been quite enthusiastic about it.

I loved Uncharted...but why do people want this to be a movie so badly? The appeal of the games is that it closely imitates a typical Hollywood action movie.

The shot with the gunplay was amazing. Looked exactly like 4.

He didn't even say a full sentence and I was already sold.

"Thief."

head turn "Whoa. hey-"

This is actually not bad, I have a soft spot for Nathan Fillion, so what do I know?

Notable Box Office Stories:

Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation - While Hollywood is always looking for the next megahit franchise there is something to be said for dependability and stability. There seems to be no more dependably solid franchise out right now then the Hotel Transylvania series, the third of which opened this weekend to #1 with $44.1M. That's right in line with the previous two which also opened over $40M but below $50M. It is isn't just gross but the production as well that is just steady as a rock. Like clockwork each film comes out every three years, each one costs $80M, each one has the same director Genndy Tartakovsky (creator of Samurai Jack and Powerpuff Girls), and other than one notable voice shake-up it's maintained a solid cast. It's so rare that a film franchise like this either doesn't fall apart due to studio greed, unmatched expectations, ego, or a million other things is kind of amazing. Hotel Transylvania won't go down in animation history or box office glory (though the franchise is now $70M away from passing $1B overall) but it's a great example that sometimes being right on track is the best way to go, even if it's not the most exciting course. Skyscraper - Once again it seems with US audiences when it comes to Dwayne Johnson the property matters more than the man as his new venture to single handedly fight a building performed well under expectations opening at a pretty weak #3 with $25.4M. The film, who's advertisements mostly focused on an epic leap off a crane, had ample room to open at least above Ant-Man and the Wasp considering (see below) but couldn't even manage that. Now savvy viewers might notice all the talk in the film about how the titular skyscraper is located in Shanghai and yes indeed you don't just set things in China for aesthetic or story reasons any more! Yup this is in fact a Chinese co-production with Legendary Pictures and Seven Bucks producing with Universal distributing. As such the film's chances to earn back its $125M budget lie overseas but since it has yet to open in the Middle Kingdom we'll have to wait to see. But word on the street is that Universal might at best get 25% of the Chinese gross so unless it's a huge hit over there it will be more of a boon for the Chinese producers than the US. Sorry Rock, guess you'll just have to cash your massive Jumanji checks instead. Sorry to Bother You - This week saw the wide release expansion of the critically acclaimed bizarro Sundance hit which managed to sneak into the top 10 at #7 with $4.2M. That's pretty solid for a film in less than 1,000 theaters in the middle of summer which is usually not kind to this kinds of odd unique fair. The film directed/written by rapper Boots Riley and starring hot up-and-comers like Lakeith Stanfield and Tessa Thompson premiered at Sundance to rave reviews but surprisingly was not snatched up by the more likely candidate A24 but rather Annapurna Pictures. The film production/distribution company has made a name for itself as a pet project of billionaire Megan Ellisson that's funded extremely risky projects by the likes of Paul Thomas Anderson, David O. Russel, and Kathryn Bigelow. However last year the company attempted a new arm by distributing films as well. The results were pretty disastrous as they released two well reviewed films (Detroit and Professor Marston & The Wonder Women) to terrible runs in the US. With Sorry to Bother You they are pushing extremely hard on social media, with Boots Riley and other members of the cast and crew try to call it a social movement to see if unique stories about black culture can hit the mark. So far this more tepid slower rollout seems to be doing well for the film but it will be interesting to see how Annapurna approaches the film as it expands in the coming weeks. Eighth Grade - While the summer blockbuster season seemed to give us a pretty mediocre weekend, that did push some people to cinema for more indie fair. The most notable of these was Eighth Grade, the debut film from mega success comedian/singer Bo Burnham which scored an excellent limited debut opening with $252K in 4 theaters, a per theater average of $63,071 which is the best of 2018 so far. The film about an awkward eighth grade girl growing is a rare production and distribution from A24 and carries major producer powers with Scott Rudin in the executive seat. It's clear A24 is hoping to have a summery repeat of the success of Lady Bird last year which still remains their biggest hit. Still a debut in LA and NY does not guarantee wide release success so it will be interesting to see this one expand, especially if it can capture the interest of the tween market.

I love the Rock, but FFS, it's just overload at this point.

The trailers for Skyscraper looked abysmal so it's no surprise to see that it didn't perform well. When the director did an AMA here, I couldn't believe that the #1 question wasn't, "You know this looks terrible, right?"

People compare him to Schwarzenegger, but Arnold at most released two movies in a year. The Rock has had 5 movies released in the span of 16 months. That’s an incredibly overloaded film schedule for anyone.

So happy for Bo, can't wait to watch it.

Well they nailed the Venom look, too bad the trailer has me convinced this movie is going to be complete garbage.

Becoz you so 2000 and late

After watching the trailer I am pretty sure Tom Hardy is playing a mentally handicapped person.

Why does this look so 2008 to me

Literature is that neuter, that composite, that oblique into which every subject escapes, the trap where all identity is lost, beginning with the very identity of the body that writes.
