It is interesting to note that Timothée Chalamet has followed in the footsteps of Johnny depp as for its characters. Several months ago we saw him play the son of Edward Scissorhands in a car commercial, a commercial in which he starred alongside Winona Ryder; now take the role of Willy Wonka, a character who Johnny made his own on the Tim Burton tape. The young man’s career Chalamet he has been on the right track in recent years and great things are still expected of him. Who would have imagined that that teenager seen for a few minutes in Interstellar would go so far?
At the moment a release date has not been announced for Wonka but we know that it will arrive sometime in 2023, that it is directed by Paul King and that we will see Olivia Colman and Rowan Atkinson in the cast. On the other hand, things are looking good for Chalamet in the last weeks; Duna – 80%, his most recent film, has already been released in theaters in Europe and will soon arrive in America to increase the box office.
Dune stars Paul Atreides (Chalamet), the young heir of a powerful family whose leader accepts the management of the desert planet Arrakis, along with the businesses that belong to the melange spice. The novel is set ten thousand years in the future, with humans unfolding through a feudal-style galactic empire. An unexpected and divine future awaits the inexperienced Paul, becoming both ally and enemies as they try to confront the musings of the Harkonnen, the family that wants to see the Atreides subdued.
Dune was a long-planned production by Denis Villeneuve, however, the coronavirus pandemic crossed the road and dragged the release date until the second half of 2021. As if that were not enough, Warner announced months ago that the film will not only reach cinemas, also to the HBO Max platform, a decision that of course infuriated Denis. At that time, Villeneuve also stated that with the decision to send Dune to HBO Max, Warner Bros. would be killing the franchise. The director pointed out that the streaming industry will never be able to develop productions as large as his new film, and that its transfer to television will only vindicate the power that piracy already has. On October 22 we will find out if he is right, will piracy affect the scope of Dune box office?
