Timothée Chalamet & Co laugh at themselves in a chat group

Denis Villeneuve’s remake of Dune continues to triumph over the world as a sci-fi hype. While the celebrated blockbuster has been in cinemas since September 16, the launch in the US on October 22 is still imminent. And that means that the stars have to keep helping to stir the advertising drum – which can sometimes take on absurd forms.

The Dune stars in private: Timothée Chalamet and Co. laugh at their share in the sci-fi hype

In addition to press tours, interviews, red carpet appearances and more Photo shoots are also part of the film stars’ obligations. One such led last Entertainment Weekly through to Dune for a cover story. Timothée Chalamet and his co-stars were staged in the coolest possible pose (among other things in a field).

Magazine readers and film fans usually do not notice what the actors think privately about such performances. But we can now thank the Dune crew for the fact that the internal jokes something has leaked out.

at Instagram Timothée Chalamet shared in his stories an exchange that he apparently did in a private Dune chat group with his co-stars Oscar Isaac and Josh Brolin had:

Quite apart from the fact that there is apparently a chat group of the Dune Stars (where can we apply for access for this?), This gives interesting insights: Timothée Chalamet throws us with his shared Insta story in the middle of a conversation that (at least between him, Oscar Isaac and Josh Brolin) and obviously relates to the EW cover photo shoot for Dune. The staged Dune actors comment on their boyband performance self-ironically:

Oscar Isaac: Totally. We look like a REALLY shitty band.

Josh Brolin: We ARE a really shitty band.

We’re so ready for the “shitty Dune band”

Would Timothy Chalamet be the lead singer of this bad band then? Javier Bardem definitely belongs to the drums and Brolin’s hands literally long for a guitar that accompanies Dune’s desert sounds (which would only confirm his musical character Gurney Halleck in the book).

Especially since Dune himself has a very serious tone as a sci-fi epic (e.g. with meaning-pregnant gerbils), it is amusing to see the actors on their promo tour accept with (biting) humor. Perhaps the chat is even effective as group therapy for grueling press appearances.

And who knows: if the boy band idea ignites, the jokes may sing Hans Zimmer’s next soundtrack, if Dune: Part 2 comes. The last question that remained to be answered was whether Oscar Isaac and Josh Brolin knew that Timothée Chalamet would share their private chat history and what Javier Bardem, the fourth band member, had to say about it.
