Timothée Chalamet is ready for the world to see his new film, Bones & All, in fact, he’s doing heavy promotion for its newly-released trailer.

The Dune actor shared the teaser trailer on Twitter, followed by a series of memes featuring dancing skeletons, with one captioned, “Me waiting for bones and all.” Another video read, “More bones coming, let’s party!”

Chalamet reunited with his Call Me By Your Name director Luca Guadagnino for Bones & All, a romantic drama based on the 2015 novel of the same name by Camille DeAngelis.

Telling the coming-of-age tale of a disenfranchised young couple, Lee (Chalamet) and Maren Yearly (Taylor Russell) embark on a cross-country journey where they develop a taste for human flesh. The trailer opens with an intimate shot of Lee and Maren with their heads together, as Chalamet says in a tortured whisper, “You don’t think I’m a bad person?”

“All I think is that I love you,” Maren poignantly replies. Maren’s on a quest to find her father that she’s never known, in order to understand her worst impulses — the need to kill and eat her loved ones.

The couple have to confront their respective terrifying pasts and determine whether their love is strong enough to make it through their differences.

With the screenplay written by frequent Guadagnino collaborator David Kajganich, the supporting cast is filled with the auteur’s favorites as well. Call Me By Your Name’s Michael Stuhlberg, We Are Who We Are’s Chloë Sevigny and Francesca Scorsese, as well as Mark Rylance, André Holland, and Jessica Harper.

The film’s creation was announced shortly after Chalamet and Guadagnino’s former Call Me By Your Name colleague Armie Hammer was accused of sexual assault and cannibalism in January of 2020.

Now, the film’s teaser has been released around the same time as the trailer for the forthcoming documentary House of Hammer, which highlights the very dark family history surrounding the Hammers.

Set to debut at this year’s Venice Film Festival, the MGM production will hit theaters on November 23, and will be available to stream exclusively on Amazon Prime shortly after.
