R46 I agree to this so much. The only two roles he actually was fit for was call me by your name and other movies where he might've played as a student. He was miscast in little women as well. How on earth was he cast as Laurie? I mean.. I can bet they didn't take notes from the novel or the old versions of the movie. Does he look like he could play a King? No and yet he did. When he rips his shirt open, all you could see is a skinny body of a sixteen year old, HW is pushing him because he's different, he's not your normal good looking guy with a great physique, woke people love different, having fem mannerisms, being all cute and awkward attracts girls which is understandable but imagine wanting to get boned by that creature, as if there's anything sexy or even remotely HOT about his personality and character.

As an elderly person, I've become aware of Chalamet only recently and watched a few of his movies. I'm not sure he's brilliant but you can't not pay attention to him on screen. He has that it factor of movie stars. I'm not convinced his brand will stand the test of time but I remember the same about pretty boy dicaprio back in the 90s. And boy has he proven many people wrong. Say what you want about Leo, but he has had the gold standard career for actors.
I'm pretty sure Chalamet's looks won't hold up though. Quirky beautiful boys rarely do. Look at Jonathan rhys Meyers. Even if chalamet avoids JRM's excesses, he has so little fat to soften aging lines.

Okay now listen, you. Don't compare 90s Leo DiCaprio to Timothee Chalamet ever again. Leo was very beautiful, and has a gorgeous body and face.

Watched Abbot Elementary last night and one of the characters name-checked TC. And then during a commercial break, ABC aired the Bones and All trailer. Was that a coincidence or a known marketing ploy?
I was surprised to see the trailer during AE. Doesn't seem the audience for the tv show would be the same for the movie? Also surprised by how little the trailer showed TC. Would think he would be the biggest selling point, but the kept it true with Russell as the lead. One last surprise, the trailer was crap. The one with the Leonard Cohen song was better.

Bones and all isn't a big mainstream movie though. It would be unfair to expect it to make 100 million plus. Its budget was 16m. And the subject matter is way out there. I think box office that goes into the 20 or 30 million is a fairer barometer. If it doesn't make back its budget then that would count against Chalamet.
Wonka, I agree, needs to make loads of money. Paul King directed the Paddington movies and they are fantastic. I don't recall if they were blockbusters.

How many of you were around when Leo was hitting it out in the 90s? I remember a lot of the same things said about him in the mid to late 90s. It's easy to say you knew he was going to be a superstar now but I remember being a little embarrassed as a fan of his. He was a teen heartthrob and I had to defend my fandom by pointing out his performances in what's eating Gilbert grape, etc and move the convo away from Romeo and juliet.
And no he didnt have a great body! He was a skinny kid himself. Nothing wrong with being skinny but he was mocked for not exactly being masculine. Though of course no one is as skinny as chalamet. Dicaprio was skinny, chalamet is skinny with a very narrow build. His head is nearly as wide as his shoulders.

OCTOBER 2022 ISSUE The Chalamet Effect: Timothée Talks Fate, Fashion And Being An Old Soul
At 26, Timothée Chalamet is already a consummate, cool-as-they-come movie star. As he gets set to become the actor of his generation, Giles Hattersley goes in search of the real boy wonder. Photographs by Steven Meisel. Styling by Edward Enninful.
BY GILES HATTERSLEY
“When Covid hit, it required me to take a step back and be humbled to the idea that the greatest rock star…” panic suddenly crinkles his features. “No, I don’t want to use that word, sorry, sorry. Scratch rock star. But [everyone has to] deal with, like, taxes and the dentist and real adulting, you know? I should have been trying to get my adult feet under myself a little bit earlier than I did,” he says.
“I found myself having to really, you know, be honest with myself that where I’ve been able to get myself to in life was balls to the wall, like throwing everything at [it] at a young age that, by some miracle, got me to where I am. But to then transition to an adulting mindset…”
Taxes and the dentist? He laughs. “I’ve always paid my taxes, I always went to the dentist, but I’m suddenly very aware of that.” It’s classic quarter-life stuff, lived at hyper-speed. “So the ways I feel older than 26 I have always felt,” he says, relaxing. “It’s not like I feel like I’ve had some mental breakthrough that has given me perspective.
The perspective that feels ‘old man’, I feel like I was born with it.” Such as? “The empath thing, the thinking for everyone in the room, the sort of misplaced idea, this sort of illusion, of control based on trying to feel for everyone.”
In Bones & All, reunited with Guadagnino, who directed him to an Oscar nomination for Call Me by Your Name, he wove elements of himself into the character. “With Lee, the illusion of control is based on feeling for no one and not even interacting with anyone.” That Lee’s affliction is cannibalism, not being very famous, perhaps gives some insight into the extreme head-f**k of the latter. “And I guess that’s where I’m at.”

It's an indie film with a tricky subject matter so I don't think there will be huge numbers but it does need to make a decent showing. This and Wonka are make or break for him. Unlike with Dune, he won't have an A list ensemble or other factors to hide behind. The industry will finally be forced to prove the hype around him with evidence and box office receipts.

The reported budget is $16 million. So I would say it needs to make at least $35 million globally in order to be successful. He seems to be more popular internationally than domestically but the domestic box office matters too. However, his PR is effective and huge so even if it comes up short or disappoints I think they will still somehow try to spin it as positive.

Yeah the promotional budget for a film of this caliber is probably higher than the supposed reported budget. I could see it doing well overseas but not as strong domestically.

It's the same with Rocco Ritchie. I actually like his latter-day 1940s suits.

I'd pay to see Mark Rylance read an energy meter in front of a double-wide trailer home, but, I don't know if this movie is...um, forgive me, to my "taste", so I think I'll skip this course.
What r235 said.
That would have lowered, in a good way, the expectations of this movie, and, with Rylance in the cast, I'd have gone to the theater and forked (get it? a movie about cannibals- "forked") over some money to see it on the big screen.
If that happened, by now, perhaps the discussion would be about how good this horror movie is, and, in the telling of it, achieves deep meaning, however that is defined.

Someone that high up in media journalism posting that is going to scare the shit out of Chalamet and his team. Their carefully constructed facade relies on no-one questioning it.
So Timothee's arrogance is going to bite him in the ass. They could've avoided this by sticking with the 'indie actor who sometimes does big films' story, but no that wasn't good enough for Lil Timmy Tim. He wants to be the next Leo. Beautiful that this will ruin his Thanksgiving.

Well it turns out I was the only person in the theater. The poster asking who was the target audience was barking up the right tree. This is in no way a mainstream movie and certainly should not be in suburban multiplexes.
I can only think that mgm knew this but thought what the heck, let's try to sell it on Chalamet's name. But the business no longer works for indie fare with a bit art house pretentions. This movie may have made some money 20 years ago when movie fans didn't want to wait 6 to 9 months to watch it at home. But of course, there is hardly any waiting to do.
I'm still glad I went to see it. It's not a masterpiece but it has its merits. I found the coming of age/discovery on the road parts engaging enough. As an 80s kid going through a spell of nostalgia, the movie captured 1988 pretty well. The movie was set in poor small town Midwest and it was appropriately more like the early 80s rather than 1988 LA or New York. The cannibal parts are revolting. And they are why I'm not interested in watching it again.
And some of you don't want to read this, but Chalamet is delectable in this, even as a white trash cannibal.
Mark Rylance plays an incel.

[quote]A cannibals’ love story was never meant for a wide audience, but studios need to try to squeeze as many bucks out of these movies as they can, so it’s no surprise that Bones and All isn’t spurring any kind of hunger. The pic went wide fast so that it could monetize its ancillary dollars as quickly as possible. Friday was +92% over Thanksgiving with $835K, and a 3-day at $2.1M and 5 day of $3.4M. The pic was able to achieve out of Venice a social awareness of 116M that ran 13% ahead of drama, horror and romance genre comps, largely spurred by TikTok views at 49.5M and YouTube views at 20.1M per RelishMix. If you’re watching your social media feed, you’ll see Timothée Chalamet and Taylor Russell pumping the movie to their Gen Z demo.
[quote]RelishMix observed Chalamet pushing to his 20.1M social followers, averaging 3.5M clicks per Instagram posts. Russell added 120K new fans on her Instagram in the run up to opening in the last two weeks.

And there was the feeling he was going to fall back to being just another lead actor. Actors go through ups and downs, not everything is box office gold.

His PR will use every excuse to try to rationalize the mediocre box office numbers. Inflation, covid lingering in the background, poor weekend for all movies, he's borderline supporting in the movie, etc. None of that matters. If he really is the actor of his generation with 18 million Instagram followers, then this should've been a slam dunk for him. Yes everybody has bombs and not everything is box office gold but he's had enough time, experience, and fawning profiles under his belt. I don't feel too bad for him. In addition to being completely mediocre, he's an annoying attention whore with a massive ego. To be fair, I don't want to just pick on him. I think all the other "stars" of his generation: Zendaya, Austin Butler, Florence Pugh are all equally overrated and overhyped. After pretty much non stop fawning profiles since September, the movie came in at 7th place with $3.7 million. Whoever said Chalamet and his PR's claim that people are drawn to his looks and talent and that he can put butts on seats depends on nobody questioning it hit the nail on the head. After a week in theaters, the public beyond teenage girls and Gen Z entertainment journalists said no I will not like or support this guy just because you tell me to all the time.

Since when has big box office been an indication of talent. Wouldn’t that make The Rock the most talented actor in Hollywood!?

I'm not saying box office numbers is an indication of talent. I know what his talent level is: mumbling mouse. I'm just saying after months of the media saying his name alone can open a movie he didn't seem to get many butts in theater seats.

I’d love to know what the percentage is of people in this thread is thatve actually bothered to see the movie that the thread is nominally supposed to be about. My guess is like five percent? It mostly seems to be an excuse for like five people who’re more obsessed with Chalamet than any of his most ardent fans to never stop thinking about how much they sure don’t like him, nope not at all, which is why they just cannot stop talking about him and thinking about him and posting about him forever and ever and ever and ever

I was off today so I decided to see it. Taylor was pretty mediocre and the film was pretty boring. You definitely don’t need to rush to the theater. Wait for it to stream. As for Timmy, I mean whose cock is he sucking? How does he get roles? You can’t understand what he’s saying half the time because he mumbles and he has zero chemistry with every actor except himself. Does he get work just because he promotes products and clothes for the fashion industry?

I think it's possible it could still recover its total cost of $40 million. However, there would need to be good word of mouth going into digital release. I agree right now it's not a stumbling it's a box office failure.

Can I add that this movie also suffers from the current trend of casting light-skinned black actresses and having them speak extremely white. This particular role with the character being raised by a single working class black father in Virginia, it was absurd.

r352 Really is funny how people talk about how many followers he has on social media, like that's meant to help the box office. And then on top of that, he posted, what, four or five times about it?

R353 Black people can and do speak any way they want to, a whole range of dialects and accents. There is no such thing as "speaking white". That phrase is offensive.

This disconnect between high social media following and low box office totals is really interesting. Is it just me or do you think some of his followers and likes are bought and fake? I mean he has close to 20M followers and some posts get up to 4M likes but a film in which his name alone was the primary selling point comes in at a distant 8th place and makes $3.6 million worldwide.
|by Anonymous||reply 363||November 29, 2022 10:13 PM|
Hard to say if they're bought followers, or if it's just the majority of his fans only like him as a personality (in the thinnest sense of the word) rather than actually as an actor.

He's got something... but no to the movie. It should have been some sappy romance where he play nerd and dies romantically at the end after whispering sweet nothings to his partner. That's what the audience wants to see. Not red hair and meat crap.

Obviously the internet isn’t the real world. Even if every single one of those fan girls bought two tickets, the movie wouldn’t break even. Social media has a way of overestimating its representation of the real world.
