FilmWeek Marquee: ‘Black Panther: Wakanda Forever,’ ‘The Fabelmans’ and ‘Guillermo Del Toro’s Pinocchio’

Published November 11, 2022 at 10:14 AM PST
Paul Dano and Michelle Williams sit in a movie theater with Mateo Zoryon Francis-Deford sitting between them. Dano wears a gray wool blazer with a white button-up underneath and a rusty-red bow-tie. He wears glasses and seems to be watching whatever is on screen intently. To his right sits Francis-Deford only coming up to Dano's shoulder. He wears a red sweater vest and matching bow-tie with a white button-up underneath. He stares up at the screen in wonder, eyes wide, mouth open. Williams sits in the next seat over to Francis-Deford's right. She also wears a white button-up, however the her shirt has ruffles lining the strip of buttons in the middle. Thick black straps from a sweater or dress can be seen on her shoulders, the rest of her blocked by an empty red chair in front. Instead of watching the film  like her companions, she looks over at the corner of her eyes at Dano, watching him as he watches the film on screen. Surrounding them is a packed theater of people.
