Friday, April 30, 2010 Robert Pattinson Awarded Best Actor for “How to Be” at the Strasbourg Film Festival

ETA: He actually won that award in 2008. - Thanks to RobPattOnline

Rob was awarded "Best Actor" for his performance in "How To Be" by the Strasbourg International Film Festival


Other awards received by Twilighters for non-”Twilight” performances fall primarily in the niche, festival, or independent realm. Robert Pattinson’s sole non-”Twilight” win was awarded by the Strasbourg International Film Festival—he was honored with a “Best Actor” designation for his performance in “How to Be”.

A note to fans from Bill Condon




Greetings Twihards, Twifans, Twilight Moms, Team Edward, Team Jacob and Team Switzerland,

I just want to say hello to all of you and let you know that I'm stoked to be getting underway on the adventure of making BREAKING DAWN. As you've probably heard, I've been given a very warm welcome by Stephenie and Team Summit - who are super-focused, as you know, on getting these movies right.

I'm pretty busy bringing myself up to speed on what you already know by heart: I've read BREAKING DAWN twice, rewatched Catherine's and Chris's movies 2-3 times each, have all four CDs playing in my car, and have Catherine's notebook, Mark Cotta Vaz's companion books, and even Volume 1 of the graphic novel here on my desk - a corner of my office is starting to look like Hot Topic. I realize that this barely qualifies me for "newborn" status in the universe you've been living inside for a few years now, but a guy's gotta start somewhere.

Like many of you, I've always been slightly obsessed with vampires, dating back to the prime-time series DARK SHADOWS, which I followed avidly as a kid. But that alone hadn't been enough to get me interested in making a vampire movie, even though my early screenwriting and directing efforts grew out of a great love for horror movies and thrillers. Since making GODS AND MONSTERS thirteen years ago, however, I've been yearning for a return to a story with Gothic overtones.

The wonderful world that Stephenie has created has obviously struck a chord with you, and I don't think it's difficult to see why. For me, her characters are simultaneously timeless, yet very modern. Rooted in a beautiful, real landscape with a great sense of place, Bella, Edward, Jacob, and the rest of the Forks/La Push menagerie, experience emotions that are primal, and universal: desire, despair, jealousy - and it all comes to fruition in BREAKING DAWN. This is a final chapter in the best sense; not just wide in scope and scale, but emotionally charged and intense throughout.

I'm a huge admirer of the already-iconic Kristen, Robert, and Taylor, and wanted to be the one to work with them as they face the challenges of bringing your beloved characters to the end of their journeys. Really, what could be more fun than that?

Please feel free to ask questions in the comments section below, and I'll do my best to answer them. I hope that this will be the first of many occasions I'll get to check in with you as we set to work bringing BREAKING DAWN to the screen. I am excited and grateful to have all of you alongside me for my TWILIGHT journey.

All best,

Bill Condon

P.S. Answer #1: No, there won't be any musical numbers

Robert Pattinson Makes The 2010 TIME 100 List — Article Written by Chris Weitz


Robert Pat­tin­son
By Chris Weitz
I have to be care­ful about what I write here because it will be tweeted the moment TIME hits the stands. And if I say some­thing bad about Rob Pat­tin­son, I’m dead meat. That’s the devo­tion the Twi­light films inspire. It’s cer­tainly not how he planned it. And though I am con­tin­u­ally impressed by the aplomb with which he han­dles the hys­te­ria, I occa­sion­ally think he would take it all back if given the chance. Because essen­tially, Rob, 23, is a reserved, book­ish sort of spec­i­men, a guy who’d rather spend the night at the cor­ner table in the pub with friends — a bit of a weirdo, frankly, in the best sense.

So how to write about some­one who seems to answer Freud’s rhetor­i­cal ques­tion, What do women want? Per­haps it’s just worth point­ing out that it’d be fun to have a beer with him even if he weren’t Edward Cullen. That we haven’t seen a tenth of what he can do onscreen. And that impor­tant things, beyond the veil of Hol­ly­wood, occupy his time too — music, con­ver­sa­tion, ideas, a sense of the absurd. Which, maybe, explains why he never gets to my e-mails. I love you, Rob! Call me!

The LA Times Tells Us What We Can Expect From Edward Cullen in Eclipse



The family that slays together, stays together.

At least that's the case for the Cullen brood.

In "The Twilight Saga: Eclipse," which hits theaters June 30, Seattle is ravaged by a series of killings caused by an army of newborn vampires controlled by revenge-seeking bloodsucker Victoria. To combat the threat against Bella ( Kristen Stewart) in this third installment of the franchise, the Cullens must band together and join forces with their sworn enemies, the wolf pack.

"The whole family is in a vulnerable position because of the love we have for Bella," said Elizabeth Reaser, who plays matriarch Esme Cullen. "If she's not OK, we're not OK."

In the past, we've seen the clan hit baseballs so hard that they can play only in a thunder storm, to block out the sound. And we've watched the buttoned-up human imposters welcome Bella into their home as the human girlfriend of one of their own — the handsome Edward.

"This time around, you get to see their true vampire-ness," said Peter Facinelli, who plays head vampire Dr. Carlisle Cullen in the series based on the bestselling books by Stephenie Meyer.

What can we expect from the pale-faced Cullen family (which includes the Hale siblings) this go around? Here's what the actors say audiences can expect from the story and their characters:

Robert Pattinson (as Edward Cullen): Snagging a phone interview with the brooding dreamboat — who was overseas shooting his latest film, "Bel Ami" — proved difficult. So what can we expect from the lovesick Edward? He promises to love Bella "every moment of forever," as the trailer reveals. He's still hesitant about her becoming a vampire. He's determined to protect her from Victoria. And he's vying with Jacob for her affections. Oh, the life of an antique teenage vampire.

Betty White 'too busy' to get naked with Robert Pattinson




Golden Girl Betty White says she is too busy to do a nude scene with Twilight hunk Robert Pattinson who is 65 years her junior.

But the 88-year-old actress says she should write to the 23-year-old Brit for reportedly calling her the sexiest woman in the US.

'I should write him a thank you note,' White tells the New York Post.
When asked if she would do a nude scene with the heart-throb though, White squashed the idea.

'No, sorry. I wouldn't,' she says. 'There really isn't much spare time these days.'


TV veteran White will guest host US TV show Saturday Night Live on May 8 after fans launched an internet campaign requesting that she appear.

'I don't understand it all,' White says. 'I'm the luckiest old broad on two feet.'
White, who co-starred alongside Sandra Bullock in The Proposal last year, is in hot demand of late, despite nearing 90.

The Saturday Night Live guest spot is just the latest in a string of recent projects that includes her new TV series Hot In Cleveland.

Speaking about her upcoming schedule she says: 'I do the show Saturday night. Sunday I fly back to California and Monday I start the new series I'm doing for TV Land.'

The demanding commitments won't slow her down though, White insists.

'I think energy builds on energy,' she says. 'I love the business I'm in and the more you do, the more it works.'

Edward Cullen vs. Harry Potter



I met Robert Pattinson last May in Cannes. It was a top-secret kind of thing — I had to sign a paper saying I wouldn’t write a story about it until his new movie, The Twilight Saga: New Moon, opens in November — but I can reveal that the interview, which was held in the martini bar behind a beachside restaurant, was held to the background noise of a crowd of young girls who stood on the road, behind security barriers, and screamed non-stop. I don’t know how Pattinson finally got out: by sea would seem to be the only escape route. Otherwise, he may be there yet.
By contrast, Daniel Radcliffe, the star of the Harry Potter films that are competing for the same tween audience, is a less likely sex symbol: he’s short and nerdy. That’s not my judgment, it’s what Radcliffe himself said the other day. “If girls like short and nerdy, then I’m a sex symbol,” he said, adding, “Rob Pattinson is a sex symbol. He’s a genuinely sexy guy — he’s got the height.”

Pattinson, who coincidentally played Cedric Diggory in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, is six foot one. Radcliffe is five foot six.

Radcliffe can also get young girls to scream, but his is a more restrained hysteria. At the New York City premiere of his new movie, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, he walked past the adult reporters to talk to an 11-year-old girl named Danielle, who was reporting for Scholastic News, an online service for kids. Here is part of that interview, as reported in New York magazine:

Danielle: “I’ve seen the first and second movies and read the first and second book and they are so good. Especially the movies. I loved them, the movies.”

Radcliffe: “Thank you very much. You’re very, very kind. They get even better than that though, so when you get the time, or when your parents think you’re old enough, you must watch the rest. They’re very cool.”

However, young wizards-in-waiting do grow up to become young virgins-in-waiting, and Harry Potter himself is growing into that more adult world: the word is that the new movie is more mature and that romance is in the air. The wizard is getting older, and suddenly it’s not all quidditch and magic spells.
That crossover in audience appeal has put Harry Potter into a kind of competition with Twilight. The vampire movie has made $382 million (US), and while that is dwarfed by the Harry Potter success story — 400 million books sold, $4.5 billion at the box office — a rivalry has sprung up among fans, at least on a tsunami of fansites arguing the merits of the two franchises. (Sample debate, from nerdfighters.ning.com: If the Twilight characters and the Harry Potter characters got into a fight, who would win?)

The studios behind the series are steering clear of talk about competition, except for the fact that the Twilight films don’t open near the dates when Harry Potter movies are introduced.
Rob Friedman, head of Summit Entertainment, which produces the Twilight movies, told the Wall Street Journal, “We are very cognizant of where they are, and we’ve always been wary of being in too close proximity to Harry Potter because we know our fans cross over so much and we definitely don’t want to compete with Harry for attention.”

If Harry is still the king, Twilight is the coming thing. But not all Harry Potter fans have matured into Twilight aficionados and there are new readers all the time. An indication of Harry’s enduring popularity can be seen in an ad from Bauman Rare Books, a New York company: a 1940 first edition of Ernest Hemingway’s For Whom The Bell Tolls sells for $2,600; a signed first edition of John Le Carre’s 1963 novel The Spy Who Came In From The Cold is priced at $5,500, but an autographed first edition of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, which was published in 1998, costs $13,500.

Harry has burrowed into the common culture in a way that Twilight has yet to accomplish. A group called The Harry Potter Alliance, which promotes social activism among Harry Potter fans, is asking moviegoers who attend the new film to wear name tags stating lessons taught by Albus Dumbledore, Harry’s mentor, and to tweet these messages to each other (a discussion of the character’s lessons can be found at whatwoulddumbledoredo.org).

In a press release, Andrew Slack, the head of the alliance, compares Dumbledore’s messages to those of Nelson Mandela and the Dalai Lama.

So far, no one has said that about Edward Cullen. He is a vampire, but Harry Potter may be the one who lives forever.

Robert Pattinson: More Mature-Looking in BEL AMI?

Alt Film Guide’s Joan Lister had written a new article where she talks about Bel Ami and Rob’s much more mature look as George Duroy.



I haven’t read either Guy de Maupassant’s 19th-century novel Bel Ami or Rachel Bennette’s screenplay adaptation, so I don’t know exactly how old Robert Pattinson’s Georges Duroy, social/sexual climber extraordinaire, is supposed to be.
But looking at videos and photos of Pattinson in costume as Duroy, the soon-to-be-24-year-old actor surely looks quite a bit older in Bel Ami than in his other film roles (see above).
That’s not a disparaging remark. I much prefer Pattinson looking mature than looking like a “boy.” One of the reasons I — and at least some others, I’m sure — enjoy his interviews is that Pattinson comes across as much more mature than your average (or even above-average) 23-24-year-old. (Admittedly, Pattinson has never looked like a “boy” to me, though I still haven’t seen any of his pre-2008 efforts.)

Anyways, I have high hopes for Bel Ami, chiefly because Pattinson and other real good actors are in it: Kristin Scott Thomas, Uma Thurman, Christina Ricci, and Colm Meaney.
Screenwriter Rachel Bennette and directors Declan Donnellan and Nick Ormerod are basically all film newcomers in their respective capacities, though Donnellan and Ormerod have both done extensive and quite prestigious stage work. Among the plays they have staged are works by Shakespeare, Chekhov, Pushkin, and Tennessee Williams.

Who knows, perhaps Donnellan’s and Ormerod’s film debut will be as warmly received as those of fellow stage directors Nicholas Hytner (The Madness of King George) and Rob Marshall (Chicago). If so, that should translate into solid box-office receipts as well.
As an aside, in Albert Lewin’s 1947 film The Private Affairs of Bel Ami, Duroy is played by future Oscar winner George Sanders, who was 40-41 at the time. I’m assuming that was (at least) a little older than de Maupassant’s character was supposed to be. The novel is in my to-read list.

Robert Pattinson will next be seen in The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, which opens on June 30.

Eclipse Reshoots Day 1


About two weeks ago news broke that there would be reshoots of some material for Eclipse. We pointed out, as did Peter Facinelli at the Arlington, VA Official Twilight Convention, that this wasn’t unusual they had several reshoots for Twilight late in the game. For Twilight, the reshoots involved the flashback of Peter, Nikki, and Kellan in the period dress and the Quileutes in the forest. Why wasn’t Liz Reaser in those shots you may ask? Wasn’t Esme hungry that day? The answer is that Liz was shooting a TV series (now defunct) and couldn’t make it.

Hit Fix also established that the specific kind of re-shoots were what is known in the industry as “pick-up shots”. Peter further explained what that meant in Arlington. He said (I’m paraphrasing because I didn’t have it recorded) that sometimes you do these because they realize later there’s crew equipment visible in the shot, a continuity error, the lighting wasn’t quite right, or they want to add in something else to bridge the material based on the edit. Peter further joked, “I don’t have to do re-shoots, I got all my stuff right this time.” He then reiterated that they do these things all the time.
So what exactly did they “pick-up”? There was lots of Internet angst with people thinking it was the meadow proposal scene since the meadow area location was secured, but Summit had said that it wasn’t that scene. Well it looks like one of the locals, Mandy, may have gotten to the bottom of it:

“So they indeed used the “meadow” set today with both Taylor Lautner and Kristen Stewart. It wasn’t Robert Pattinson on set, so it wasn’t the “meadow proposal scene” or anything. 
 
[Lexicon note: Rob as verified by multiple media sources didn't arrive in Vancouver airport for hours after this shoot began]

I think there was confusion about just what was filmed at the meadow…. MANY things!!
That particular area has vast surroundings suitable for various shots involving a field, meadow, forest, water, mountains etc.”

So given that, as Mandy reports, the land is basic, vast woodland, and it involved Jacob and Bella…well it could be just about any Jake and Bella scene on the reservation, your guess is as good as ours.
