Respecting Rob because actions speak louder than words.
Japan previously shared their theatrical poster for Robert Pattinson “The Childhood of a Leader”, but now they have unleashed a different version. Japan always does great promotions. Hmmm wonder where their website is.
Also this little tidbit from the Utah Film Commission teases us with the possibility of an early 2017 premiere:
The Western era comedy, Damsel, wrapped up filming last week and is scheduled to premiere early next year. Robert Pattinson and Mia Wasikowska co-star in this comedy about a man trying to marry the woman of his dreams.
Since Twilight, Pattinson has found a new niche in the art-house world with films like Cosmopoli [sic]and The Rover. The Zellner Brothers’ new project, Damsel, fits the bill of art-house, but should be more lighthearted than the former…
Early 2017? Well the Zellner Bros’s Kumiko was at Sundance Film Festival (January 2014), Berlin International Film Festival (February 2014) and South by Southwest Film Festival (March 2014), not to mention a myriad of others including Sydney Film Festival in June 2014. They also wrapped filming in October 2013 and managed to have the film complete in time for Sundance. So let the waiting game begin – where will we see this film. Selfishly I have my fingers crossed that David Zellner comes back to Sydney like he did in 2014. That was an incredibly auspicious year for the SFF *winks*.
Updated: Confirmation from David Zellner that Damsel has indeed wrapped
IndieWire posted a great article on 9 Lessons Studios should learn from the Indie world this Summer. No 8 mentioned The Childhood of a Leader. I have to admit that I rarely see studio blockbustres, I’m just not a fan, which is why I love Robert working on indie films – even when he’s only in them for 15 minutes or so. Take a look at what Indiewire said:
Despite being drab and lifeless, many of this summer’s blockbusters trafficked in extreme violence that leveled metropolises: the mystical gods of “Suicide Squad” terrorized Midway City, Krang tried to level NYC in “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows,” and the aliens of “Independence Day: Resurgence” sent the London Bridge falling down. But none of it resonated, given that all of these sequences boiled down to screeching CGI madness. What really succeeded were indies which valued quiet scenes over mayhem, so when violent moments broke out, they packed a true punch. Brady Corbet’s meditative “The Childhood of a Leader” took the relatively radical step of…introducing characters and letting them talk to each other. By the time a handful of stones in a child’s hand pulled the rug from under us, our voyeurism was shattered. And although David Mackenzie’s “Hell or High Water” was a bank robbery tale, gunshots burned because they upset the rest of the film’s shaggy calm. Texas never looked so lovely as the night before our central characters’ biggest heist, as they’re drinking beer, wrestling, laughing and bullshitting. By creating quiet moments between characters you root for and empathize with, these films hit so much harder than thousands of faceless citizens fleeing extraterrestrial doom. – William Earl [My emphasis]
Great read, so click on the link above to see their other opinions.
I’m in the minority here I know. I have a new policy of avoiding unofficial set photos because I have loved being surprised at Robert’s films at the cinema. Plus I actually listened to Robert and know what he thinks about set stalkers. So for those who are curious – here’s one photo from the set of Damsel. The other more clearer photos can be found here if you don’t mind spoilers. #Update: forgot to mention that these are from the Oregon set not Utah that has wrapped.
We of course posted here, the wonderful news that The Lost City Of Z is the closing film this year at the New York Film Festival. We now have the showtimes & a link to purchase tickets when the time comes. Exciting. As we mentioned in our earlier post, general ticket sales begin 11 September.
