Robert Pattinson films making Most Anticipated Lists

image host

It’s that time of year when we all start to consider what films we want to see in 2019.  The Playlist included four of Rob’s films in their “100 Most Anticipated Films for 2019“.  I love that we have 4 upcoming films to look forward to – Rob’s been pretty busy.

12. “The Lighthouse”
Director: Robert Eggers (“The Witch”)
Cast: Robert Pattinson, Willem Dafoe
: A pair of lighthouse keepers in early 20th century Maine encounter strange forces from the sea.
What You Need To Know: Even by the standards of the brilliant debut horror films that have arrived in recent years, “The Witch” might have been a highlight: a genuinely singular and unnerving film that marked big things for director Robert Eggers. It’s taken a minute for him to follow it up (he’d been developing a “Nosferatu” remake, among other things), but Eggers finally filmed this follow up last year, with the tantalizing lead duo of Pattinson and Dafoe. It’s very much under wraps, but the film is apparently in black-and-white, and is “a fantasy horror story set in the world of old sea-faring myths,” which makes us think that either Dafoe or R-Patz are gonna bang a merman.
Release Date: Not at Sundance, so it’ll probably be TIFF at this point. A24 have the rights, anyway.

24. “The King”
Director: David Miçhod (“Animal Kingdom”)
Cast: Timothee Chalamet, Joel Edgerton, Robert Pattinson, Ben Mendelsohn, Lily Rose-Depp
: The journey of young Prince Hal from rebellious upstart to the King of England.
What You Need To Know: After an incredibly promising start to his career with “Animal Kingdom” and the somewhat underrated “The Rover,” Australian filmmaker David Michod came a little bit unstuck with high-profile Brad Pitt Netflix movie “War Machine,” a messy, if not uninteresting, film that came and went without much attention. He’s not scaling back his ambitions for his follow-up, also with Netflix: it’s an adaptation (co-written with pal Joel Edgerton, who also stars as Falstaff) of three of Shakespeare’s most famous History plays. Not only that, but it’s also tackling the same territory as Orson Welles did with “Chimes At Midnight,” arguably the greatest ever Shakespeare movie. It’s unclear whether the drama will stick with the language of the original plays, but we’re very intrigued to see what spin this puts on a well-worn story.
Release Date: Filmed last summer, so this could bow at Cannes, as “The Rover” did.

29. “Waiting For The Barbarians”
Director: Ciro Guerra (“Embrace Of The Serpent”)
Cast: Mark Rylance, Robert Pattinson, Joe Alwyn, Harry Melling, Johnny Depp
 A magistrate in colonial town clashes with a colonel who is intent on capturing local indigenous people.
What You Need To Know: Colombian filmmaker Ciro Guerra has already made one of 2019’s best films: the thrilling, gorgeous crime drama “Birds Of Passage,” which debuted at Cannes last year but won’t actually open until 2019 in the U.S. Could he have another one on the way? Guerra’s making his English-language debut with this adaptation of J.M. Coetzee’s novel, a passion-project of Mark Rylance, who takes the lead role. It’s very much in Guerra’s post-colonial wheelhouse, and there’s an impressive cast of rising stars including Robert Pattinson (who’s now something of a mark of quality), but it’s hard not to have your enthusiasm dampened by the presence of Johnny Depp in the villainous role. Hopefully, he’s taken the Grindelwald eyebrows off, at least.
Release Date: Started filming recently, so expect it towards the end of the year — hopefully Venice.

41. “The Devil All The Time”
Director: Antonio Campos (“Christine”)
Cast: Chris Evans, Tom Holland, Robert Pattinson, Mia Wasikowska, Mia Goth
 A man tries to save his wife in an Ohio town, where the inhabitants include a pair of serial killers, a corrupt sheriff and a preacher losing his faith.
What You Need To Know: Of all the filmmakers to emerge out of the Borderline Films mini-movement, Antonio Campos is perhaps the one who’s seemed the most likely to cross over to the mainstream. Although his films like “Afterschool” and “Simon Killer” are tough watches, he’s also shown a willingness to play in other people’s sandboxes: he directed the pilot of “The Sinner” and an episode of “The Punisher,” and is developing a prequel to “The Omen” with Fox. His latest film looks to meld the best of both worlds though: an adaptation of Donald Ray Pollock’s Midwest gothic novel, but with one of the most impressive casts of the year (including Chris Evans seemingly looking to throw off that Captain America good-guy image). Campos hasn’t made a truly great film yet, but this could well turn out to be the one.
Release Date: Shoots in February, so hopefully we’ll see it before the year is out.

No. 48 is The Souvenir Part 1 which gives an honourable mention to Rob although it incorrectly says he’s only part of Part 1 which clearly is  a typo as we know they mean Part 2.

48. “The Souvenir”
Director: Joanna Hogg (“Archipelago”)
Cast: Chyna Terrelonge-Vaughan, Ariana Labed, Tilda Swinton, Tom Burke, Richard Ayoade
 In the early 1980s, a film student begins a relationship with an older, untrustworthy man.
What You Need To Know: Despite being responsible in large part for discovering Tom Hiddleston(who made his debut in her debut “Unrelated,” and has appeared in her subsequent two films too), Joanna Hogg’s utterly distinctive arthouse dramas remain something of an acquired taste. But her latest — the first in a two-part, semi-autobiographical story, the second of which will follow in 2019 — could be the one to break her out wider. For one, Martin Scorsese, an avowed fan of her work, is executive producing the movie, for another, it has her most high-profile cast to date, including the currently-on-a-roll Robert Pattinson (though we’ve heard he might appear only in the first part, and isn’t in the cast listing for Sundance which adds up).
Release Date: Sundance.
