Dune: Half Two is coming to theaters later this week and is already receiving rave opinions, however some on-line communities can solely deal with one factor: the now-infamous sandworm-shaped popcorn bucket. The web, being what it’s, took the joke and ran a lot additional with it than anyone actually must when it first caught wind of the monstrosity. I don’t assume I can repeat half the stuff that people have mentioned they plan to do with it. However one necessary opinion has been silent on the matter till lately: that’s, the opinion of Dune: Half 2’s director, Denis Villeneuve. You inform me what facet you assume he lands on.

In a latest interview alongside Dune star Timothée Chalamet in The New York Instances, Villeneuve and Timmy had been requested what they considered the fervor over the popcorn bucket. Villeneuve, ever the consummate skilled who refuses to be caught slipping, said that he was, in reality, conscious of the uproar it had brought on. Right here’s an excerpt from the interview:

“I don’t need to make silly jokes proper that may I remorse tomorrow morning. However I’ll say this. Once I noticed it, I went, ‘Hoooooly smoke.’ What the [expletive]!? On the identical time, it created numerous enjoyable on-line. So possibly it’s constructive? It’s some sort of…spectacular design.”

Chalamet, who it ought to be famous apparently shot Villeneuve a “fast look” because the query landed, makes Villeneuve’s delicate dance across the matter even funnier by roughly slicing to the purpose. “I can’t inform if somebody is at dwelling proper now going, ‘My design labored completely and everybody’s speaking about it.’ Or if somebody’s brutally offended by the response.” Thanks ModdedController360, for embracing your fact proper there after which. When the world wanted you most, you gave voice to our considerations.

The dialog strikes on shortly, and the 2 are far more charitable to the popcorn bucket and its creators than I’d be, however not earlier than clarifying that Villeneuve was “not personally concerned within the design course of,” in line with Chalamet. Villeneuve jokingly responds, “I believed you had been!” With that cleared up, the following step appears apparent: monitoring down the bucket’s creator and asking them how a lot spice they ingested once they made it.
