Dune: Part Two director visits Montreal for film's Canadian premiere


As they say in showbusiness, the show must go on.

American-French actor Timothée Chalamet was supposed to be in Montreal on Wednesday for the Canadian premiere of his new film, Dune: Part Two, but he had to postpone due to an illness.

But the film's Quebec-born director, Denis Villeneuve, was in town for the "gold carpet" event at the Scotiabank theatre in downtown Montreal.
