Photographer Matt Nettheim Talks About Working On “The Rover”

Photographer Matt Nettheim Talks About Working On “The Rover” | Robert Pattinson Daily News, Photo, Video & Fan Art | Scoop.it

"Eventually work on the mainland beckoned so I loaded up my pushbike and trailer and headed back to Adelaide to join The Rover.  Writer director David Michod had hit the jackpot with his debut feature Animal Kingdom, produced Porchlight Pictures, a regular client over my career. His Animal Kingdom cast had enjoyed massive career boosts from the films local and international acclaim, and everyone was waiting to see what David would do next.  The production rolled into my hometown Adelaide, bringing with it actors Guy Pearce and Robert Pattinson, before heading off to shoot in the extremely remote and dangerously hot far north of South Australia.  The prospect of working in that environment  at this time of the year, with daily temperatures expected to be around 50 degrees, scared off many experienced local crew, but a brave crew was assembled and the film making road trip commenced."

Variety: Lionsgate Reports Strong DVD Sales of Final 'Twilight' Movie | Robert Pattinson Daily News, Photo, Video & Fan Art | Scoop.it

Showing continued strength of the "Twilight" franchise, Lionsgate has sold an estimated 3.85 million DVD and Blu-ray units of its fifth and final "Twilight" film in its first weekend of release — an increase over the fourth film.

The studio said Blu-ray sales accounted for 27% of weekend sales of “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 2,” up from 22% of the first weekend sales of “Breaking Dawn — Part 1.”...

Lionsgate’s Ron Schwarts, exec VP and general manager of home entertainment, said in a statement:  “Consumer demand for ‘The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 2″ reflects strength in all segments of the home entertainment marketplace – packaged media, digital and on demand.  This is further proof that author Stephenie Meyer has created a timeless classic that moviegoers want to enjoy over and over in a wide variety of formats.”...

The DVD release of “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2” caps a franchise that’s generated sales of 50 million DVD and Blu-ray copies for the first four films....

Analysts have expressed confidence that Lionsgate will be able to mirror the success of launching more young-adult franchises and cited efforts to leverage its content into digital media initiatives...

"Twilight" Actors Guri Weinberg and Erik Odom Talk About Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart

"Twilight" Actors Guri Weinberg and Erik Odom Talk About Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart | Robert Pattinson Daily News, Photo, Video & Fan Art | Scoop.it

Erik Odom has high praise for the movie’s stars, Stewart and Pattinson:
“Meeting them, I was surprised at how down-to-earth they were. It was sweet to watch them together on set.”
Weinberg agreed that the actors were not egotistical:
“When you walk into a big film like this with big stars like this, you wonder how they’re gonna be ... how they’ll respond to you,” he said. “It would be a disservice to mention only the Top 3 (Stewart, Pattinson and Lautner) because the rest of the main cast were also just genuinely nice. You hear other people talking ... about how everybody’s nice and all that, but on this movie, everybody really was. They were amazing people. For them to have so much success at such an early age and still be so grounded ... to me, it was amazing to see. It was an honor for me to meet all of them and work with them as human beings.”
Odom, a self-confessed “hopeless romantic,” says he believes the appeal of the “Twilight” series is its timeless romance element — and the chemistry between Stewart and Pattinson made it a hit on-screen.
“(The filmmakers) really got it right with Kristen and Rob as far as the casting went,” he said. “There’s been such an overlap of how iconic the characters are, but also how iconic Kristen and Rob are — both on their own. When together, it became bigger than anyone could’ve imagined.”

EW: FIRST STILL Of Robert Pattinson & Guy Pearce In “The Rover”

EW: FIRST STILL Of Robert Pattinson & Guy Pearce In “The Rover” | Robert Pattinson Daily News, Photo, Video & Fan Art | Scoop.it

Check out the first still from the movie with Robert Pattinson & Guy Pearce in EW:

"Australia was founded as a repository for crooks and criminals — a wretched hive of scum and villainy.... Of course, that was a long time ago and the Australian national demeanor has since shifted from “kill or be killed” to “live and let live,” but David Michôd’s gritty 2010 drama Animal Kingdom chronicled some of the country’s more modern criminal descendents. In his upcoming sophomore effort, The Rover, the director takes things even further.

Robert Pattinson plays a denizen of the Outback in the near future, after a worldwide financial collapse has sent many like him running to the still viable mines of the Australian desert. “It’s like a new gold rush,” says Michôd. “Where people from all corners of the world have come out to the desert to scrape out an existence. Petty criminals and miscreants and hustlers.” Guy Pearce, who had an uncharacteristically reserved role in Animal Kingdom, gets to sink his teeth into a nicely nasty part opposite Pattinson. “The basic story is really quite elemental,” says Michôd. “You’ve got a really dark, dangerous, murderous person in Guy’s character, and in Rob’s character you have a quite troubled and damaged, but beautiful and naïve, soul.”

Of course, just by its setting and basic plot, The Rover is poised to draw comparisons to one of the antipodean country’s most memorable cinematic contributions. “You put cars in the desert in Australia and people are going to think of Mad Max,” says Michôd. “And with all due respect to that film — and I stress that — I think The Rover is going to be way more chillingly authentic and menacing.”

Screenwriter of 'Hold On To Me' Brad Ingelsby Gives Insight Into the Movie

Screenwriter of 'Hold On To Me' Brad Ingelsby Gives Insight Into the Movie | Robert Pattinson Daily News, Photo, Video & Fan Art | Scoop.it

Brad Ingelsby gave interview to Go Into The Story, official screenwriting blog of the Black List. Although there’s no Rob mention in this snippet, we do get a great insight into the movie.

Brad Ingelsby is one busy writer with at least six projects in various states of development and production including Hold on to Me and Run All Night ...and The Raid. 

 

Scott:  You’ve got several other projects in the mix, one of them another Black List script, “Hold on to Me.” That’s based on an article written by Hillel Levine and Jimmy Keene. “A ruthless and money‑hungry woman uses a hapless man as a pawn in her criminal schemes.” Could you give some background on how that project evolved?

Brad:  Yeah, sure. That was an article, as you said, that Jimmy and Hillel had written. It was supposed to be published in Playboy magazine though I don’t think it ever was. Alexander Milchan, a producer, gave me the overview of the article that was to be written at that time. It’s a true story. An almost unbelievable true story about a murder committed in Illinois in 1986 by this woman Nancy Rish and her boyfriend, Danny Edwards. We’ve fictionalized the story quite a bit, but in real life Nancy was this blonde beauty and former pageant queen who had aspirations of leaving her small-town life in Kankakee, Illinois. In an effort to escape the doldrums of small-town life she starts dating this guy, Danny, who is beneath her usual standards. But he’s a guy she can shape and mold and so she does. She introduces Danny to drugs, then gets him to deal drugs, then gets him to deal more drugs. And this ascension continues until Nancy gets the fancy estate home and fancy sports car and the big boat she always wanted. And just when she’s finally living the life she always imagined for herself, it all gets abruptly taken away when Danny is pinched and thrown in jail.

So she’s back at this lowly diner where she waitresses and she’s reading this article, I think it was in “Esquire” or “Vanity Fair,” about a young socialite who was kidnapped and buried alive and kept alive for three or four days. And a light goes off in her head. She says to herself, “This is how I can get my life back.” I won’t give away too much more, but it’s a truly bizarre and haunting story of greed and ambition.

James Marsh is going to direct it and Carey Mulligan is going to star. James is one of the smartest people I’ve ever worked with. And one of the kindest and most collaborative. So it’s been a truly great experience. I’m really excited about that one.

Werner Herzog, Director Of  'Queen of the Desert': 6 Reasons Why He Is a Living Legend | Robert Pattinson Daily News, Photo, Video & Fan Art | Scoop.it

Here are the reasons why we consider the director a living legend.

- He was hit by a bullet during interview and brushed it off as no biggie (see video - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ylXqc8TQ15w)

- He lugged a boat over a mountain, filming Fitzcarraldo (1982) (see video - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F53yUsgVuL0)

- He set up a film school that doesn’t teach you about film.

- He threatened to murder Klaus Kinski – and meant it!

- He threw himself into a bed of cacti as an act of solidarity.

- He did eat his own shoe (see video - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CGcWTIWYDMQ)

Flashback Roundup: Robert Pattinson as Salvador Dali in “Little Ashes” - How It Was Done

Flashback Roundup: Robert Pattinson as Salvador Dali in “Little Ashes” - How It Was Done | Robert Pattinson Daily News, Photo, Video & Fan Art | Scoop.it

Paul Morrison, director of the film, about the process of selection actors:

For Lorca and Dali, I must have seen every up-and-coming young actor who was available in both Spain and the U.K. Originally, Rob read for Lorca, and I was going to cast Dali in Spain. But Rob felt so much more a Dali – the combination of acute intelligence and vulnerability and self-consciousness that the part demanded – that I switched, and brought him back to read for Dali. He was perfect. I never saw anyone in Spain who felt right for Dali, by the way.

(Source: http://www.examiner.com/article/little-ashes-director-paul-morrison-talks-about-the-film-the-cast-and-the-future-an-exclusive)


David Cronenberg about Rob in “Little Ashes”:
I saw him in "Little Ashes" as the young Salvador Dali. He does a Spanish accent, he was not afraid to play a character of ambiguous sexuality and eccentricity. That probably of all the things I saw made me think he was the right guy [for role of Eric Packer in "Cosmopolis"]. (Source: http://blogs.indiewire.com/thompsononhollywood/cronenberg-talks-cosmopolis)

 

Robert Pattinson about playing Salvador Dali:

I did that before "Twilight." I was going to give up acting before that. I did the casting about two years before for "Lorca." (Federico Garcia Lorca) They said, we found a Spanish guy who looks just like Lorca to play Lorca. Do you want to play Dali? Which is like the opposite part to Lorca. They told me four days before shooting. I was just so disinterested in acting at the time. I just thought oh, a three-month vacation in Spain. OK. I went there and it was so intense the whole time and everybody was speaking Spanish and I don't speak a word of Spanish. The whole crew was Spanish. I was the only English person there for the majority of the time. It gave me a reason to really focus on the script and the research to a ridiculous degree. It was the only thing I did for the entire time. I had this whole series of photos. And figuring out the way he would move his body. There's a picture of him pointing. I spent days trying to figure out how did he get his arm like that. It was probably unnecessary but it was the one time I felt like slightly satisfied. (Source: http://www.moviesonline.ca/movienews_15905.html)

… I just did the same thing, breakdown what you know about him. Also, there's a ton of literature which he wrote and about him and then you just kind of build that back up again. Also, when I was playing him it was when he was very young, 18 to 26 and the story is about his descent or assent into this caricature of which everyone knows. He was this chronically shy kid when he was younger. So it's really not playing Dali, per se, apart from towards the end of it - and I'm still not really playing him. It's more the mood of Dali I think.

I just researched tons and tons of stuff because everyone spoke Spanish on the set and so I just read all day. It was the first time that I ever really got into characterization, trying to work on movements. There was a photo of him pointing and I kept trying to figure out how he pointed for like three days. I've never done that for any job. I was doing tons of stuff on his walk and such. By the end, I have no idea [how it turned out]. Someone said to me the other day, 'I had no idea it was about Dali until you had the mustache at the end.' I was just like, 'Oh, great.' I think it's a kind of homage to him, I guess, in that performance. I've never related to a character more than him, which is really weird because everyone thinks that he's some nut job. When he was younger, if you read his autobiographical stuff – he wrote three autobiographies which completely contradict each other. Literally in one of them he said that his mother sucked his d-ck and all this stuff. And then in another one he says that his mother was the greatest mother in the whole world and gave him the best childhood he'd ever had. There are chapters called 'Truth' and other ones are called 'Lies' and then lies and the truths and stuff, it's just really funny. There was so much about him that I found fascinating. It's depressing how he did it himself and yet everyone sees him as this mask. He wanted that, but it's so funny how he was so much more than just this bizarre clown that he was at the end of his life who only cared about money. He was an incredibly complex person. I'm not saying that I am. I'm not at all." (Source: http://movies.about.com/od/twilight/a/rob-pattinson_3.htm)

 

Robert about nude scenes:

"In a lot of ways, I was kind of crossing lines of what I thought I was comfortable doing. I had to do all this naked stuff. I thought I'd never get another acting job again. So I was like, 'Yeah — why not try to do something weird?' There's all these gay-sex scenes. And, you know, I haven't even done a sex scene with a girl in my whole career.” Pattinson said it wasn't so much having to play gay that was hard, but having an audience there for it: "Here I am, with Javier [Beltrán], who plays [Federico Garcí] Lorca, doing an extremely hard-core sex scene, where I have a nervous breakdown afterward. And because we're both straight, what we were doing seemed kind of ridiculous. ... And it wasn't even a closed set. There were all these Spanish electricians giggling to themselves."
