"That's wrong," Florence Pugh said in response to seeing AMC Theaters' promotional popcorn bucket for 'Dune: Part Two'
Zendaya, Timothée Chalamet, Florence Pugh and Austin Butler appeared together on Jimmy Kimmel Live Thursday, and during the interview Kimmel, 56, brought out the collectible popcorn bucket, which has received considerable attention in recent days.
The bucket is styled after the enormous fictional sandworm creatures in the Dune movies, based on the 1965 science fiction novel of the same name by author Frank Herbert. In order to access the popcorn, you have to slide your hand through the sandworm's teeth.
"I'm good, I'm okay," Zendaya, 27, joked when Kimmel offered for her to reach inside the bucket to get some popcorn. Chalamet, 28, jokingly pretended his arm was being eaten when he reached inside the bucket.
"That's not okay," Pugh said in response to seeing the item. "Who made that? That's not okay. That's wrong."

"It's really hard to get the popcorn out of this thing — it's not ideal for eating," Kimmel added.
Public reaction to the popcorn bucket has involved a significant number of sex-related jokes, which the actors appeared to have some familiarity with during their Jimmy Kimmel Live appearance. "The jokes write themselves," Zendaya said during the interview.

Dune: Part Two revisits the fictional planet Arrakis — and its giant sandworms — immediately after the end of 2021's Part One. The science fiction epic from filmmaker Denis Villeneuve follows Chalamet's character Paul Atreides as he makes allies of Chani (Zendaya) and the planet's population known as the Fremen. Butler, 32, stars in the movie as a villain named Feyd-Rautha, who is tasked with hunting down Paul, while Pugh appears as the galaxy's princess, Irulan.
Léa Seydoux, Christopher Walken, and Tim Blake Nelson also joined the series for its sequel, on top of an already large ensemble that features Dave Bautista, Javier Bardem, Josh Brolin, Stellan Skarsgård, Charlotte Rampling and Javier Bardem.
