I’ve never liked one of his movies.

The biggest problem, though, is Hans Zimmer

Hans Zimmer's best score.

Anyway, I am excited about this one. Wasn't before but I am now. Hopefully it will be the first villeneuve that I'll love.

I unironically loved Zimmer's bombastic score in 2049. I hope this one's even louder.

Hilarious photo shoot.

None of that deterred Villeneuve, who still remembers the moment he first found a copy of Dune in his local library growing up. He was so captured by it — by Paul's journey from noble privilege to finding true community with the Fremen people who inhabit Arrakis, by Herbert's scientifically-informed creation of planetary ecosystems, by the vividly psychedelic cover art by Wojciech Siudmak — that he even carved "Muad'Dib" on the inside of his school ring. That artifact has unfortunately been lost to the sands of time, but Villeneuve's obsession with Dune has never left him. As he became a film director, carving out a distinguished career with smaller films like 2010's Incendies and Enemy before moving on to big-budget sci-fi like 2016's Arrival and Blade Runner 2049, Villeneuve's answer to the question "what's your dream project?" never changed.

[...]

"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."

Chalamet had previously auditioned for Villeneuve's 2013 film Prisoners, but didn't make the cut.


 I'm into this Hallmark Channel-esque mood considering the source material couldn't be farther from this 'basic tee' + autumn field aesthetic.

EW always manages to produce the wildest publicity photos.
