It’s Timothee Chalamet Week on Breakfast All Day. He’s at the center of two giant movies with ridiculously packed casts of superstars and character actors alike. First, Alonso and Christy review Denis Villeneuve’s “Dune” — or at least, part one of “Dune” — which we watched under extremely different conditions. Then, our brilliant friends Katie Walsh and Tim Grierson join Christy for a lengthy discussion of “The French Dispatch,” the most Wes Andersony movie Wes Anderson has ever made. In news, we talk about the tragic, fatal shooting of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins with a prop gun, Netflix employees walking out over the streamer’s handling of Dave Chappelle, Gotham Award nominations, Travis Tritt canceling concerts over covid protocols, In-N-Out Burger fighting California’s safety mandates, Celine Dion delaying her Las Vegas residency and Michael Caine retiring from acting. And for our Patreon subscribers, we recap this week’s episode of “The Morning Show.” We’re here to spice up your life, so thanks as always for joining us.
