Sad boy Timothée Chalamet gorgeously mopes in first still from Dune

Professional brooder Timothée Chalamet is set to star in the forthcoming adaptation of Frank Herbert's Dune, but you don't have to wait for the movie's release in December to see what he looks like as protagonist Paul Atreides. Vanity Fair has the highly-anticipated first still of Chalamet in the movie — which is directed by Blade Runner 2049 filmmaker Denis Villeneuve — and you'll be relieved to see that in it, he is doing what he does best: looking gorgeous and moping.

Fans immediately drew parallels to the emo Star Wars villain Kylo Ren, played by Adam Driver, although others were a little more creative with their comparisons. "Totally digging Timothée's Madonna-tour-dancer-about-to-do-a-reveal look," raved critic Boyd van Hoeij.
