Robert Pattinson’s films seems to be appearing on a lot of “Anticipated” or “Looking Forward” movie lists.  I know there are some of us that are Doubting Thomas’ when it comes to The Trap and High Life isn’t scheduled until 2018, but I’m pretty chuffed that Robert’s films are making these lists.

Little White Lies has included 3 of films in their “50 Films to Look Forward to in 2017”

11. The Lost City of Z

Eta spring 2017

James Gray’s follow-up to 2014’s The Immigrant tells the true story of British explorer Percy Fawcett’s travels to Amazonia in the 1920s. Hoping to discover a lost civilisation in the treacherous, unchartered jungle, Fawcett (Charlie Hunnam) ignores the ridicule he faces from his contemporaries and devotes his life to his work. Robert Pattinson and Sienna Miller co-star.

18. The Trap

Eta unknown

Spring Breakers writer/director Harmony Korine is behind this horror/crime-thriller starring James Franco, Robert Pattinson, Al Pacino and Benicio Del Toro. Korine has hinted that the film is the second part of his so-called ‘Florida Trilogy’. This time the action centres on an ex-convict and his quest for revenge against a gangster rapper friend who let him take the fall for a robbery they committed 14 years earlier. [Maria: I believe Franco is no longer involved, but then who knows with this film]

24. High Life

Eta late 2017 [Maria:  Actually High Life is due for release in 2018]

French master Claire Denis helms this Robert Pattinson-starring drama. Set in the future, it casts Pattinson, Patricia Arquette and Mia Goth as a group of criminals who accept a mission in space. In doing so they become the subjects of a human reproduction experiment. We couldn’t be more intrigued by this winning combination.

Meanwhile, I tweeted this morning that e-Radio (US) included Damsel in “10 Films We’re Looking Forward to in 2017

The Zellner Brothers made an internet star out of a rabbit called Bunzo in Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter. For that 2014 film, the Austin based filmmakers turned Japanese urban myth about an obsessed Fargo fan into cinema in its own right. For their next trick, they have conjured up Robert Pattinson and Mia Wasikowska for a Western comedy about a man trying to marry the woman of his dreams. You can, obviously, expect something a little less linear than just that. Due 2017

Thanks Posh for heads up for both these articles.

A couple of other lists I came across are:

CineSeries included The Lost City of Z in their Top 10 Most Wanted Films

8. The Lost City Of Z – James Gray – March 15, 2017

In 1925, explorer Percy Harrison Fawcett traveled to the heart of the Amazon in search of a lost city. With films like The Yards , The Night We Own or Two Lovers , James Gray has become one of the major filmmakers of our time. His dark and poetic approach paints a humanity in pain of living. The Lost City of Z promises to be great and the cast is impressive: Charlie Hunnam , Robert Pattinson , Tom Holland and Sienna Miller .

Talk Film Society included The Lost City of Z and The Trap in their Most Anticipated Films of 2017

The Lost City of Z

James Gray (The Yards, We Own the NightTwo LoversThe Immigrant) directs this true story of explorers who disappeared while searching for a mysterious Amazon city in the 1920s. Starring Charlie Hunnam and Robert Pattinson, the film drew rave reviews at the New York Film Festival, and should make for quite an adventurous tale when it releases this spring. (RT)

The Trap

Harmony Korine had a major comeback in 2013 with Spring Breakers, and here he moves into decidedly more mainstream category, especially with a cast that includes Al Pacino, Robert Pattinson, and Benicio del Toro. Centering around an ex-con out for revenge after a gangster rapper and former friend let him take the fall for a robbery they committed years earlier, it marks new territory for Korine, but should be subversive nonetheless. (RT)

I’ll add more lists as they come out.  I’m sure Good Time should be on a few too.

Updated 4 January 2017:

Fandor includes High Life, Good Time and The Trap

While our minds are on France, we need to mention two projects in the works from Claire Denis, even though both aren’t expected until 2018. As Nicholas Bell reminds us at Ioncinema, High Life, “an ambitious sci-fi film starring Robert Pattinson and written by novelist Zadie Smith and Nick Laird,” will be Denis’s English-language debut. She’s also begun work on Les Lunettes Noir (Black Glasses), her own adaptation of Roland Barthes’s 1977 book, A Lover’s Discourse. The extra surprise here is that Juliette Binoche and Gérard Depardieu, who feuded for years, have been cast together.

Robert Pattinson is a bank robber on the run in Josh and Benny Safdie‘s Good Time, “described as ‘neo-grindhouse.’” With Jennifer Jason Leigh.

Harmony Korine‘s The Trap “centers on an ex-convict and his quest for revenge against a gangster rapper friend who let him take the fall for a robbery they committed 14 years earlier.” With James Franco, Robert Pattinson, Al Pacino and Benicio Del Toro.

Cineplex magazine includes “High Life” in their “2017 Movie Preview – 16 of the most exciting films coming out over the next 12 months” (Thanks Posh)

Le Courrier D’Algerie “16 Films Expected in 2017”

The Lost City of Z by James Gray (March 15)
After the flop of his magnificent The Immigrant, James Gray could also be modest -and then not lost for lost he preferred to throw themselves wholeheartedly into the project Fantasized since 2009, the film adaptation of the life of the explorer Percy Fawcett (Charlie Hunnam, with finally the promise of a real role), disappeared in 1925 in the Brazilian jungle in search of a lost city. The first images promise us a film of adventures to the bone, radical and desperate, somewhere between Apocalypse Now and the sources of the Nile. On the way.

The Film Stage “50 Best Films of 2017 We’ve Already Seen”

It is the little-stated, undeniable truth that critics are surrounded by nearly innumerable factors when experiencing the work they’ve been assigned to review. Presentation is rarely treated as a basic on the level of form, theme, or auteurist interest, and most mentions will come only if something had gone terribly wrong. This issue sometimes being rather important, I feel compelled to say James Gray’s The Lost City of Z is a rather forceful thing when projected on 35mm, as befits the writer-director’s wishes and with which the New York Film Festival, premiering this picture as the closing title of their 54th year, complied. I can and will compliment the movie for a number of reasons not necessarily pertaining to what material it was printed on and what machine it came out of, so let it be stated upfront that this is most likely the best (only?) way to experience what Gray and cinematographer Darius Khondji, reuniting from The Immigrant, have achieved: a film that will often truly and totally appear to have been made in decades past and just discovered today. – Nick N. (full review)

The Playlist also gave us The Lost City of Z in “The 20 Best Movies of 2017 We’ve Already Seen”

“The Lost City Of Z”
Director: James Gray (“The Immigrant”)
Cast: Charlie Hunnam, Robert Pattinson, Sienna Miller, Tom Holland, Angus Macfadyen
Synopsis: In the 1920s, a British explorer attempts to find a legendary lost city in the jungles of Brazil.
Verdict: Though perhaps slightly less so than when Brad Pitt or Benedict Cumberbatch were attached (it’s been developing as a film for the best part of a decade now), there’s a fair chance that “The Lost City Of Z” could be the film that finally helps James Gray, one of the best living American filmmakers but someone who’s often been under the radar, the mainstream acceptance he’s long deserved. An epic, almost Herzogian adventure (albeit with, as our NYFF review said, “a continuation of the quieter mood” of his previous film) that puts his themes of familial tragedy front and center once again, it’s absolutely gorgeous-looking thanks to DP Darius Khondji, and sees its stars deliver some of their best work to date. It might not be for everyone — it’s “classical, unrushed filmmaking,” but it’s likely to “inspire admiration and obsessives,” too.
Our Review: Rod gave it a B grade at the NYFF
Release Date: April 21st

Filmmaker Magazine:  “The 50 Most Anticipated American Films of 2017”:

This list culls together the American films that I’m most fervently anticipating in 2017. I’m also looking forward to catching a number of 2016 festival films that I’ve not yet had a chance to see (including James Grey’s The Lost City of Z …

12. Good Time (Josh + Ben Safdie)
What It’s About: A bank robber finds himself unable to evade those who are looking for him.
Why It’s Included: Judging by the kinetic energy of the Safdie’s Heaven Knows What and Daddy Longlegs, there are few candidates more primed to direct an incredibly tense caper film. Can’t wait.

17. Damsel (David Zellner)
What It’s About: A Western Era comedy about a man trying to marry the woman of his dreams.
Why It’s Included: Over three features and like a dozen shorts the Zellners have established themselves as our preeminent purveyors of weird cinema. This, their Kumiko follow-up, pairs with Robert Pattinson for a mysterious, but sure to be odd Western.
