Move over Dune sandworm popcorn bucketsDanny McBride has some thoughts on movie theater snacking.

In an interview with GQ, the 47-year-old comedian unleashed his thoughts about the recent shift toward serving full meals — and drinks — at movie theaters.

“I hate it, I can’t stand it,” he admitted of the trend, before digging into the sale of alcohol at theaters in particular.

“I also don’t think it makes sense to combine booze with movies. You’re going to have to piss. Doesn’t alcohol make you want to get up and get loose? You don’t want to sit there, drink beer, and just be quiet,” he continued. “I would have no interest in going to see a movie and just pounding IPAs. Just f------ falling asleep.”

McBride instead noted an alternate offering that he thinks more theaters should be implementing.

“If I went to a theater, and it was like, ‘Here’s your popcorn and here’s f------ weed,’ I feel like that would be an awesome little combo right there,” he told the outlet.

In his words, weed and movies “go together f------ perfectly.”

Ironically, McBride's comments come in the wake of a viral debate initiated by the limited edition release of popcorn buckets in the shape of a sandworm at AMC theaters, a particularly interesting Dune: Part Two promotional tool.

The discourse around the bucket — which consists of a tin with a detachable lid that resembles the giant, toothy sandworms (or Shai-Hulud) of the desert planet Arrakis — even reached the star-studded ensemble of the sequel film, with Florence Pugh calling it "not okay."

"Who made that? That's not okay. That's wrong," Pugh, who plays Princess Irulan in the film, said in response to the bucket on Jimmy Kimmel Live!

Zendaya politely declined Kimmel's offer to stick her hand inside and grab a snack, while Timothée Chalamet pretended his arm was being eaten when he reached into it.

Much of the response to the bucket has involved sex-related jokes, and the actors, including Austin Butler, have appeared to be familiar with that since the film's release, with Zendaya quipping, "The jokes write themselves."

The film's director, Denis Villeneuve, even weighed in on the conversation, telling the New York Times, "I don’t want to make stupid jokes right now that will I regret tomorrow morning. But I will say this. When I saw it, I went, 'Hoooooly smokes. What the [expletive]!?' "

"At the same time, it created a lot of fun online. So maybe it’s positive? It’s some kind of …impressive design," Villeneuve continued.

Chalamet, 28, added, “I can’t tell if someone is at home right now going, ‘My design worked perfectly and everyone’s talking about it.’ Or if someone’s brutally offended by the response.”

The Canadian filmmaker admitted that the collectible item "brought a lot of laughter and joy" to people, which Chalamet agreed is "something we need more of," before they clarified they were not involved in creating the bucket.
