Dune star Timothée Chalamet also loves the David Lynch version

David Lynch’s 1984 adaptation of Frank Herbert’s Dune doesn’t have nearly as many fans as the weirdo filmmaker’s other flicks, but his Kyle MacLachlan-starring take has its fans (like us). Among them, apparently, is Call Me By Your Name star and Hollywood darling Timothée Chalamet, who’s signed on to star as hero Paul…

Here's the video for anyone who still can't forget the spider-thing in Denis Villeneuve's Enemy

Before he struck pay dirt with Sicario and dazzled with the likes of Arrival and Blade Runner 2049, Denis Villeneuve was making strange, difficult art films that were appreciated more than they were, well, enjoyed. Prisoners was a dense, gripping watch that only a sadist would subject themselves to twice, while 2013's …

Denis Villeneuve says he can't get away with making another "art house movie" like Blade Runner 2049

Denis Villenueve’s latest film, Blade Runner 2049 was a mixed success; critically praised, the film failed to do much at all at the U.S. box office. (European audiences were more kind.) Just in case you needed a reminder that, in Hollywood, you’re only as good as your last picture, though, Villeneuve—whose previous…

Blade Runner 2049's director thinks he knows why it didn't score a Best Picture nomination

Blade Runner 2049 was a resounding success in every way save financially.

Denis Villeneuve's Dune won't be anything like David Lynch's version

Director Denis Villeneuve’s Blade Runner 2049 was a surprisingly faithful sequel to Ridley Scott’s original film, echoing its iconic style with new ideas and advancements that still felt honest to core of the original. For his upcoming adaptation of Frank Herbert’s Dune, though, Villeneuve’s has no interest in paying…

Could Blade Runner 2049 have used a little more grit to go with its epic awe?

After 35 years of science-fiction movies only inspired by—or blatantly derivative of—Ridley Scott’s landmark dystopian noir, they finally made another Blade Runner: a nearly three-hour, big-budget art movie masquerading as a blockbuster, starring Ryan Gosling as a new era’s robot-hunting answer to Harrison Ford (who…

Blade Runner 2049 creates gorgeously languid spectacle from our memories of a classic

B+

Blade Runner 2049 begins on a farm in broad daylight. It’s what you would call a dramatic change of scenery. Before now—which is to say, for the decades it took Hollywood to get this long-awaited sequel off the ground—Blade Runner was basically synonymous with nighttime and the city. Though set in a sleek, bleak…
