Armie Hammer and Timothee Chalamet got a lot of buzz at Sundance for their romantic movie Call Me By Your Name and now the first clip has debuted!
In the scene, Armie, 30, rushes over to Timothee, 21, and gives him a massage to loosen up his tense muscles.
Armie plays a 24-year-old student who visits Italy in the 1980s and strikes up a romance with a 17-year-old boy, played by Timothee. The film is based on a book that features some explicit love scenes.
“Call it by luck of the universe. Armie and I really hit it off,” Timothee told Variety. “I haven’t had a friendship like that with someone that I’d worked with. There was something about being plucked from our respective areas and being brought to this small town in Italy where we really had to depend on each other. This wasn’t the plan, but we became such good friends that it made the chemistry onscreen palpable, because we really did like each other in real life.”
Call Me By Your Name will be released by Sony Pictures Classics, but it doesn’t have a release date yet.
