Timothee Chalamet really has come out of nowhere in the last year, scoring an Oscar nomination for Call Me By Your Name, whilst also appearing in the much praised Lady Bird and alongside Christian Bale in Hostiles. Now he’s taking the lead in a romantic thriller, although some will be sad the romance isn’t with Armie Hammer this time.
Here’s the synopsis: ‘Set in Cape Cod over one scorching summer, Hot Summer Nights follows Daniel (Timothée Chalamet), a shy out-of-towner who gets in over his head flipping weed with the neighborhood rebel (Alex Roe) while pursuing his new business partner’s enigmatic sister (Maika Monroe). With a hurricane looming in the wings, tensions rise against a backdrop of drive-ins, arcades, and crashed parties as the stakes (and temperatures) grow ever higher.’
Hot Summer Nights arrives in the US in June. It’s not clear when it will arrive in the UK. Take a look at the trailer below. [Read more…]
