Since the release of the Oscar-nominated, zeitgeist-dominating film, Call Me By Your Name in 2017, fans of the genius duo that is Timothée Chalamet and Luca Guadagnino have been waiting eagerly for the moment the pair will reunite. Our hopes and dreams were briefly entertained when news of a CMBYN sequel was announced, and now Chalamet and Guadagnino are serving us with a double treat, with the pair collaborating once again on new film, Bones & All.
What is the plot of Bones & All?
Bones & All follows Maren (Russell), a young woman who enjoys eating flesh, learning to live on the outer of society. She embarks on a cross-country road trip with Lee (Chalamet) in search of her absent father and to understand why she has the urge to eat the people who love and care for her. While the film is about cannibalism, Guadagino has said it isn't as extreme as other movies of the same genre. The screenplay, which is being penned by Guadagnino's long-term collaborator, Dave Kajganich, has been adapted by Camille DeAngelis' novel of the same name. Additionally, our beloved Chloë Sevigny is set to join the cast, alongside Hollywood-family royalty Francesca Scorsese.

By now, it's no secret that the connection created between Chalamet's acting and Guadagnino's directorial genius is a winning formula. Their CMBYN collaboration grossed $41.8 million USD at the box office, simultaneously becoming a pop culture sensation and seeing both Chalamet and Guadagnino receiving Oscar nominations for their respective roles. Although their reunion has been a longtime coming, both parties have been busy as ever.
Chalamet has had several highly-anticipated film releases over the past months, including his portrayal of Paul Atriedes in Denis Villeneuve's adaptation of Dune alongside his turn in the ever-growing troop of actors on Wes Anderson's roster, starring in The French Dispatch. If this wasn't enough, Chalamet has also been confirmed to star in the upcoming Willy Wonka origin film, Wonka. Director Guadignino himself is also quite the busy man, reportedly producing and working on a new film for Netflix, titled Born to be Murdered; set to star Alicia Vikander and John David Washington.
When is Bones & All releasing in Australia?
The film will premiere at Venice Film Festival later this month, with a debut in theatres on November 23, 2022. Timothée Chalamet has shared a first look at the teaser trailer, below.
