Respecting Rob because actions speak louder than words.
With the start of the new year looming, we will try to maintain an international “release date” page for each of Rob’s films. It will be updated each week or as soon as dates are confirmed. It’s possible dates will change because as happens, movie release dates change often according to what else is being released at the time (or that’s how it works in Australia. I was once told that release dates are like a game of snakes and ladders). I’ll also add any new cinema promotional posters, otherwise I’ll just provide hyperlinks to trailers & posters that are the same as we’ve already seen but have subtitles or are dubbed. So for 2015 here are the release dates for Maps to the Stars as per IMDbPro unless otherwise stated (and once the release date has passed I’ll move the information to behind the cut for ease):
Ecuador 13 March 2015 (looks like this may be delayed (Cineplex still lists as coming soon))
If I had started writing this wrap up on Wednesday morning it would have started something like this: *Sobbinguncontrollably*. First no movie with Robert De Niro. Now no drug dealing, leather clad motorbike Rob. What is wrong with this world. I don’t want to see Divergent|Insurgent|Belligerent or whatever the next “ent” will be. I saw Twilight I don’t need no more franchises. What I want is interesting stories and new characters, even if I did see Inherent Vice and I have no idea what I watched. At least it made me think rather than roll my eyes so far back I saw yesterday. Ugh. At least I woke up to that new outtake from Autumn de Wilde. Thank you Autumn you clearly knew how sad I was. BUT instead it’s going to start off with “OMfreakingG” Rob’s in final talks to costar with Al Pacino, Idris Elba, Benecio Del Toro and *cough* James Franco *cough*. I think the only other costar other than Pacino that would have made me wipe those tears away from no Bobby DeNiro would be Jack Nicholson. *CARTWHEELS*. So now the “Harmony Korine Untilted Project” has become “The Trap” on our Films page. I haven’t completely discounted that Assayas has given up on Idol’s Eye, but Rob’s getting busier and busier like he promised, so you just never know. And it’s not like his age will make a difference so we could see it sometime in the next few years. I’m going to go with that because I just can’t believe that they could not get financing for that film. Two new castmates have been added to The Childhood of a Leader and I speculated about whether we would see the film premiere at either Venice or TIFF in September 2015. Variety confirmed that it’s not ready to be at Cannes – like 2 months is even remotely possible for a new director to unleash his first attempt at one of the most prestigious international film festivals. *rollseyes* at Variety’s clickbait that worked since I read the article ha! Michelle reintroduced The Year That Was with her 2012 Cannes gifs and I posted one of my favourite interviews during Rob’s Sydney promo of Breaking Dawn Pt 2. I love how Rob gives us great moments and soundbites from interviews. Hmmmm maybe I should go through each promo and put together a post for best soundbites|reactions from Rob. Michelle also took us on a walk down memory lane with her Letter “H” – the handprint ceremony felt like it was just yesterday and I didn’t really expect to be standing in Rob’s shoes last year, but I did and it was glorioius. Peter Lindbergh is trying to make me look like a liar by confirming the photoshoot for a new Dior campaign – shrugs – I’m just reporting what I’m told. Maybe it’s early days and they don’t know either. Time will tell I guess. Better to have low expectations and be surprised than high and be disappointed. Maps to the Stars DVD came out in Oz. I hope you all went out and bought it. And I didn’t predict how nostalgic I would get when I saw Edward Cullen on my TV. I’m probably going to watch Twilight tonight even though I have the DVDs. The first film is still my favourite of the series. Who would have tought. Until next week when hopefully we get some release dates for Queen of the Desert and Life … just putting it out there.
So how surprised was I tonight to see Edward Cullen on my TV screen in a commercial after the end of an episode of Spicks & Specks on ABC2. Very! ABC2 are screening the entire The Twilight Saga over the next 5 weeks. That’s one movie every Sunday night starting with Twilight tomorrow at 8.30 pm. It’s then repeated the following night (Monday) at 11.35 pm again on ABC2. So set your recorders or a reminder if you want to walk down memory lane with Edward. The current schedule is set out below:
Roderick Hill has been added to the cast list on IMDbPro as “Older American Gentleman”, so slowly but surely we are getting glimpses of other characters in The Childhood of a Leader. Anyone following Mona Fastvold’s instagram will glean that they are no doubt in post production in Paris. And in an article from October 2014, Helen Danielsson (producer) did say:
“Her new assignment Childhood of a leader is more like a European independent film – a psychological thriller and a depiction of how fascism grew strong after the Versailles Treaty at the end of the 1st World War II, according to Helena Danielsson.
We expect the first launch it during the festival in Venice and then in Toronto, she says.” [My emphasis]
One of the world’s worst kept secrets. I cannot wait to see Peter’s photos given his philosophy below. Imagine. Also good to see him confirm what we all already hoped, and kind of knew, when he spoke to Women’s Wear Daily:
“Recognizable for his purist style, Lindbergh seems to be prospering during the current backlash against excessive airbrushing and Photoshopping. “For me, every picture is a portrait — no matter what I’m doing. From my very old standpoint, I think everything you do should have a meaning,” he says. “The idea [that] it doesn’t is unacceptable to me. A lot of mainstream photographers seem not to think about what they’re doing or feel any responsibility toward anything. And by the time they’re done, the models don’t have any trace of themselves left. This thing about looking young with no wrinkles or expression is all so boring really.”
Having just shot Robert Pattinson for the new Dior Homme Parfum campaign, Charlize Theron for J’adore Dior and Michelle Williams for Louis Vuitton, Lindbergh said he doesn’t fit the designer mold, “I look more like a plumber, when you see me. Fashion is not my thing.
“I guess I have this image so that at least the people I photograph look the way they look. I guess that gets me a lot of work at the moment,” Lindbergh says.”
And in case you didn’t read my ramble about Dior in last week’s RPAU Week in Review – I’ve been told there’s no new campaign for Rob and Dior in Australia this year. *shrugs* Maybe it hadn’t been formalised yet, or maybe this is a European | US campaign – I guess time will tell if that changes.
2012 you say … Rob coming to Australia was epic enough, but I just love Rob’s interaction Fitzy & Wippa over the tshirt. This happened during the press junket for Breaking Dawn Pt 2 in Sydney in October 2012. I don’t know if Rob really was stitching them up, I agree with Fitzy about the smirk though. I remember thinking as soon as I hit play on this the first time that the tshirt would somehow be involved in a joke. Rob’s a gem.
