Widely regarded as one of the best young actors in Hollywood, Timothée Chalamet has a new movie ready to come out in fall 2022, Bones and All. The movie marks the second time that Chalamet is teaming up with director Luca Guadagnino, following their work in the 2017 movie, Call Me by Your Name.

Call Me by Your Name was one of the more acclaimed movies of 2017, receiving countless awards and nominations, including a Best Picture and a Best Actor nomination for Chalamet at the Oscars (the movie won an Oscar for Best Adapted Screenplay). Five years later, Bones and All is among the early contenders for some awards itself.

Here is everything we know about Bones and All.

When is the Bones and All release date?

Bones and All has a scheduled release date of November 23 in the US. Release dates in other parts of the world, including the UK, are unconfirmed at this time.

The movie got its world premiere at the Venice International Film Festival.

Who is in the Bones and All cast?

Timothée Chalamet may headline Bones and All, but the Dune and Little Women star is joined by a solid ensemble of actors in the movie. 

Up first is Taylor Russell as Maren. Russell is a growing star in her own right, having appeared in Escape Room and its sequel, Escape Room: Tournament of Champions, as well as the critically acclaimed movie Waves on the big screen. On TV she’s starred in Falling Skies and Lost in Space.

Part of the supporting cast for Bones and All includes another Call Me by Your Name alum, Michael Stuhlbarg. Others include Mark Rylance (Bridge of Spies), Chloë Sevigny (The Girl from Plainville), André Holland (Moonlight), Jessica Harper (The Old Man), Jake Horowitz (The Vast of Night) and David Gordon-Green, the Halloween Ends director taking a rare role in front of the camera.

What is the Bones and All plot?

Bones and All (opens in new tab) was originally a book by Camille DeAngelis. This adaptation is being written by David Kajganich, who previously wrote Luca Guadagnino’s movies A Bigger Splash and Suspiria.

The movie is about a young girl named Maren (Rusell) and her relationship with her first love, a drifter named Lee (Chalamet), as the two live on the edges of society in 80s America under Ronald Reagan. Guadagnino has been quoted saying the movie is about the disenfranchised and these two characters’ emotional journey. 

Part of that journey also apparently involves cannibalism. We'll see how that all plays into it.

Is there a Bones and All trailer?

A teaser trailer for Bones and All is here. It's just 30 seconds long, but it previews an intriguing mix of romance and horror with Chalamet and Russell's characters. Give it a look right here:
