‘Dune’ Star Timothée Chalamet Dons Legendary Hoodie Throughout Curtain Name As Studio Challenges WarnerMedia’s Choice To Transfer Upcoming Movie To HBO Max – .

Timothée Chalamet ended his Saturday Night Live hosting debut by donning a Legendary hoodie during the curtain on the sketch show.

While it might seem an interesting fashion choice at first, the Dune star’s attire could have a deeper meaning when news of Legendary’s decision to challenge WarnerMedia emerged earlier this week. . reported on December 7th that Legendary, the studio behind Denis Villeneuve’s new adaptation of Frank Herbert’s science fiction classic, is challenging HBO Max for its decision to move King Kong and Godzilla to the premium streaming platform.

On December 3, Warner Bros. announced that its entire 2021 film program would debut along with theaters on HBO Max – a decision that has a number of responses – from support to criticism – from industry names like Christopher Nolan to AMC Adam Aron and Villeneuve received themselves.

Chalamet, who plays Paul Atreides in the upcoming science fiction film, did not mention the feud by name, but his drapery can be seen as a subtle sign of support. While most guests simply thank their musical peers and express viewers for watching Saturday Night Live, Chalamet urged viewers of his hosting debut: “Treat us with kindness.”

“We’ve all had a crazy year … we could do a little kindness,” he said at the end of the show. “Every bit of friendliness counts.”
