Rob and David

 

When the franchise that made you famous has made over $1.3 billion at the box office, you’d probably never lower yourself to audition for a role again, right?

Not Robert Pattinson.

To win over Animal Kingdom writer/director David Michôd, RPatz threw any Twilight swagger out the window. “I didn’t know anything about him,” Michôd told us Thursday night at The Rover‘s L.A. premiere. (He said this with a straight face.) “I hadn’t seen any of the Twilight films.”

But Michôd remembered meeting Pattinson and his “really wonderfully awkward physical energy,” which the director thought would be perfect for The Rover, a post-apocalyptic drama, which leaves RPatz caked in dirt and blood as the dim younger brother of a car thief.

Despite the fact that few in Pattinson’s position would continue to test for roles, said Michôd, Pattinson was cool about it:

“There were no airs, there was no arrogance, there was no sense of entitlement. Even in terms of testing for me. He knew that he needed to work hard to have the kind of career that he wants.”

How did Pattinson, dressed in a natty teal suit, feeling about bringing his Cannes hit to the U.S.? “A bit scary,” said the actor, looking around at the college crowd at Westwood’s Regency Bruin theater waving signs and posters. (Even Zac Efron was there.)

“But we had a really young audience in Australia a few days ago and it was such a bafflingly different reaction. Everybody was like, howling with laughter. And in Cannes you could hear a pin drop the entire time. Crazy. So I have no idea what the reaction’s going to be.”

So far, so good.

What to wear what to wear – even Georges is pondering.  The Sun is giving one lucky UK reader and their guest a chance to attend the Berlin premiere of Bel Ami:

“We’re sending one lucky reader and their guest to the German capital for the star-studded event where they’ll walk the red carpet with the film’s stars.

The winners must be available to fly to Berlin next Friday.

The film comes out in the UK on March 9, and stars R-Patz as a struggling outsider who rises to the top of Parisian high society by bedding with a string of wealthy women. …

As well as seeing the stars and attending the premiere, this amazing prize package includes return UK flights for two to Berlin and two Berlin WelcomeCards to give you free reign of the city’s transport system.

You’ll spend three nights at the historical Ellington Hotel, a relaxed, elegant, four star design hotel in the heart of the city.”

All you have to do is answer one question here.

Competition closes 10am GMT (UK time) on Tuesday 14 February 2012.  Now THAT’s a Valentine’s Day present worth winning.

Oh I just LOVE all this Bel Ami buzz.  This snippet from Evening Standard is brilliant.  LOVE the praise Rob is receiving – makes me smile from ear to ear.  “Astonishing”  Bring on the Aussie release date, just bring it on.  15 days to go for you Jules *grins*

Having made his name as Harry Potter, Daniel Radcliffe must now spend the years ahead stamping on his childhood image. He could take a lesson from Robert Pattinson, who appears in the astonishing new film Bel Ami, as the most charismatically repellent leading man I can recall. He makes Valmont in Les Liaisons Dangereuses look like a puppy. In another piece of counter-casting, Kristin Scott Thomas plays a lovesick matron, humiliatingly scorned. It is an unsettling premise that a handsome young man can pick off the wives of powerful men. Newspaper proprietors and politicians will keep a much closer eye on their domestic arrangements after seeing this film.

I just love that the Bel Ami promo is starting to move into full swing. We’ve been waiting a LONG time & now it is all starting to unfold.  In this article, Rob talks about the film, Georges & annoyingly they had to bring Twilight & Edward into the mix *rolls eyes* Please people do NOT try to make BA promo all about Twilight – come on just let it GO.   I just cannot wait to hear Rob talk about the film.  Makes me do a happy dance at the thought *grins*

Robert Pattinson heads from Twilight to darkness in Bel Ami

Twilight made him a heartthrob … and Robert Pattison is ramping up his sexual adventures in his new film which is previewed at Glasgow Film Festival. He talks to Will Lawrence

‘There are lots of attractive women in the film,” says Robert Pattinson of his latest screen release, Bel Ami.

“Christina Ricci, Uma Thurman and Kristen Scott Thomas…” He pauses before flashing a smile. “And I sleep with all of them!”

After five years cocooned in a teenage Twilight world of angst, anger, vampires and werewolves (in which sleeping with people is a complicated process), the 25-year-old Englishman clearly enjoyed this romp through 19th-century Paris.

Perhaps the best known of the six novels by French short story writer Guy de Maupassant, Bel Ami is certainly his most subversive, savage and ironic piece, charting the tale of Georges Duroy, a young man who travels through 1890s’ Paris, from cockroach-plagued garrets to magnificent salons, employing his wits and beauty as he bids to rise from poverty to fame.

The story comes to the big screen in March — previewed by early screenings at the Glasgow Film Festival later this month — courtesy of theatre directors Declan Donnellan and Nick Ormerod, who have put together a piece that resonates strongly today, regardless of its period setting.

“This character uses sex and women’s huge attraction for him to get to the top of the pile,” says Donnellan of Duroy. “It’s an unremitting world and, in the end, he gets the lot. There are no consequences for him. People think it’s very modern, somebody getting to the top with very little talent. Duroy has an enormous desire to get to the top, and that is his talent. It’s about incredibly modern themes. That’s one of the thrills of doing this story. It is set in 1890s’ Paris but it would almost be too near to the bone to do it now.”

To bring the laconic and lovely-looking Duroy to life, the directors turned to Twilight star Pattinson, one of the most desired men on the planet, whose real-life journey, while not quite mirroring the lothario lifestyle of his character, has certainly benefited from his exquisite good looks.

“My Bel Ami guy doesn’t have a conscience,” explains Pattinson. “Most fictional characters are driven by some target, but he is like a reverse character. He’s so content to do nothing and thinks everything should just be given to him. But if someone slights him, or directs any insult at him, the most overwhelming energy grabs him and he turns into this absolute devil who will do anything.”

An attack on the invidious French society of the time, the Maupassant story is dark and rather disturbing in places, but few could argue with its no-holds-barred candour.

“It’s like in Giant,” Pattinson continues, referring to the 1956 George Stevens picture starring James Dean, “when he builds the entire empire to say ‘f*** you’. Duroy is exactly like that but without any of the redeeming characteristics. The whole story is about these people trying to beat him down into remorse, and just as he’s about to touch it, something good happens to him again.

“And then he has another run of luck, right at the end, until eventually he stabs everyone in the back and then wins the lottery. It’s a happy ending for him and no-one else.”
