Wait … Did Timothee Chalamet and Kylie Jenner Break Up?

Timmy, aka, Prince Paul Atreides, was allegedly seen acting very single sans King Kylie

I’ll admit it here: I didn’t read Dune. But I’ll also swear on my life that I’ve had Frank Herbert’s massive odyssey of a novel on my TBR long before the new adaptation, Dune: Part One(let alone Dune: Part Two), was set in motion by Denis Villeneuve. I'm not new to this, but I'm also not true to this.

It’s my father’s favorite book, so I grew up half-grateful, half-scornful he didn’t name me Chani. Now that Zendaya is playing that role, I’m still ambivalent about the choice.

Which is to say, all these long years, I still haven’t even turned to the first page. Therefore, I don’t know how it ends — specifically if Prince Paul Atreides (Timothee Chalamet) gets the girl in the end. I guess I’ll find out on March 1st, Dune: Part Two’s long-awaited release date (shoutout to the SAG strike). But until then, I have even hotter Dune tea to contemplate: Did Timothee dump Kylie Jenner?

Every year, Awards Season is special for one reason: we all come together in outrage against a very specific group of voters, and publicly shame them until we grow bored.

Sundance has a well-deserved reputation for excavating emerging talents in the film industry through its mission to support engaging new stories. Sundance winners in the past are firmly lodged in our cultural canon, such as Fruitvale Station, Whiplash, and Precious.

Update: 10/20/23

(Read our full review of Saltburn HERE)

Like little orphan Oliver Twist, I can't help begging for more. In this case, I am grateful for every scrap MGM and Amazon throw our way in the rollout for Emerald Fennell's Saltburn.

The most anticipated movie of the year (by me), Saltburn is less than a month away. And we finally have the first full-length trailer.

The SAG strike has been a long and difficult road for us all: the actors who are striking, the stubborn execs who just need to give in and make a deal already, and us, the lovers of cinema, who have had to endure so much. Movie after movie has been pushed to 2024, from Dune: Part 2 to Challengers, depriving us of not one… but two, Zendaya press tours.
