Robert Pattinson Photo: Cosmopolis Slick Billionaire/David Cronenberg on Failing to Sell Out

8 December 2011 4:27 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Robert Pattinson, Cosmopolis At the 2011 Gotham Awards, honoree David Cronenberg claimed, "I’m a fraud. I’m here because I’m a failure. I’ve failed to sell out." Cronenberg, of course, was referring to the fact that — despite his best efforts — after four decades in the business he is still perceived as an arthouse filmmaker with limited box-office appeal. Well, for the most part, that is true, but Cronenberg has had his share of box-office hits, most notably his 1986 remake of The Fly, starring Jeff Goldblum and Geena Davis. Additionally, the filmmaker has certainly succeeded in luring big-name talent: The Lord of the Rings trilogy's Viggo Mortensen in Eastern Promises, A Dangerous Method, and A History of Violence; King Kong's Naomi Watts in Eastern Promises; Oscar winner Jeremy Irons in M. Butterfly (and in Dead Ringer prior to Irons' Oscar win); Oscar nominees Ralph Fiennes and Miranda Richardson in Spider; plus Ed Harris, »

Robert Pattinson Cosmopolis Photo, David Cronenberg Praises Pattinson/Eric Packer

28 November 2011 2:45 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Robert Pattinson in Cosmopolis movie adaptation Robert Pattinson has received quite a bit of praise from his Cosmopolis director David Cronenberg on MTV News. (Cosmopolis photo via Total Film.) Pattinson's non-Twilight box-office appeal is as yet unclear, but his name has worldwide recognition, an important factor when it comes to getting financing for a low-budget movie such as Cosmopolis. However, before casting Pattinson (who replaced Colin Farrell), Cronenberg did his homework. He watched Pattinson's movies, including, one assumes, Twilight, New Moon, and Eclipse, in addition to Little Ashes — in which Pattinson plays Salvador Dali as a closet case — and Remember Me. "Ultimately, I felt he was the guy," Cronenberg says. "Once again, intuition." As for Pattinson's own reaction to being cast, the director added that "this is an unusual jump for him. He said it himself. It's scary. It's a scary thing because he's never really had to carry a movie quite that way before, »

Exclusive: David Cronenberg Talks Cosmopolis

21 November 2011 8:44 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

I recently had the honor of speaking with director David Cronenberg, who was out promoting his new drama A Dangerous Method, which arrives in theaters November 23.

We also talked about his new thriller Cosmopolis, which hits theaters sometime next year and stars Robert Pattinson, Marion Cotillard, and Juliette Binoche. I asked him if Cosmopolis will be the movie that will separate Robert Pattinson from his Twilight past. Here's what the director had to say below.

"I have no control over that, obviously. All I know is, as with Keira, I thought that Robert was very underrated. I mean, Keira has done more work than Robert has, but in England, they're always on her for whatever weird English class reasons. I'm not sure what that is. I always thought she was a substantial actress, and I had no doubt that she could really ace this role. I felt the same about Rob. »

Most of us haven't yet had a chance to see David Cronenberg's new movie A Dangerous Method, but the director is already wrapping up yet another film: an adaptation of the Don DeLillo novel Cosmopolis. Robert Pattinson stars in the film as a young billionaire whose journey across Manhattan over the course of a day proves... eventful, at the very least. Sarah Gadon plays his wife, and there are new images of both, below. [gallery columns="2"] The Cosmopolis cast also includes Kevin Durand, Jay Baruchel, Samantha Morton, Juliette Binoche, Paul Giamatti, and Mathieu Amalric. If you're looking for possible spoilers, or just want to know how the story of a man traveling across town in his limo fits into Cronenberg's interests, check out a report on the final day of shooting [1]. I didn't read the whole thing because I am a bit wary of spoilers (I haven't yet read the source »

New Images from David Cronenberg’s Cosmopolis Starring Robert Pattinson

8 November 2011 7:24 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

New images from David Cronenberg's adaptation of Don DeLillo's Cosmopolis have found their way online.  The film stars Robert Pattinson as a newlywed billionaire who ends up losing his bride and his billions in a single day.  I'm willing to give Pattinson a pass on the Twilight films since I think the material is untenable, and I want to see if he rises to the challenge of a demanding lead role in a David Cronenberg movie.  (However, I feel it's important to mention that I never saw Remember Me or Water for Elephants.) Hit the jump to check out the images.  The film impressive cast also stars Sarah Gadon, Kevin Durand, Jay Baruchel, Samantha Morton, Juliette Binoche, Paul Giamatti, and Mathieu AmalricCosmopolis will likely hit theaters in 2012.

Top Ten Most Anticipated Films Coming Up in November and December 2011

4 November 2011 3:23 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

First off, the main reason I'm doing this is because I know my list will differ from yours, primarily because I've already seen several of the hotly anticipated upcoming films. So I knew I my list would include a few titles that might otherwise go unrecognized as I preview my top ten most anticipated films coming up for November and December of 2011. That said, I don't want to overlook any upcoming titles of note, whether I've reviewed them or not. So, let's begin with the films I have seen, move to the titles that just missed the list and then delve into my personal top ten... The Movies I've Already Seen

In all honesty, if I had not made a personal rule that I couldn't include films I'd already seen I don't think I could have done a top ten. It would have had to have been at least a top 15 as films like Melancholia, »

Albert Finney Goes From Bourne To Sam Mendes' 'James Bond 23'

28 October 2011 4:53 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

When it was announced that Oscar-winner Sam Mendes, a man best known for prestige pictures like "American Beauty" and "Revolutionary Road," would be directing the new James Bond film, it was generally seen as something of a curveball. And if anyone was expecting business as usual for the franchise (especially after the poorly-received "Quantum of Solace"), they were mistaken. While previous entries have been made up of acclaimed, but relatively small names like Mads Mikkelsen and Mathieu Amalric, Mendes has stacked his deck with a host of award winners. Joining Daniel Craig and Judi Dench for the new installment, rumored… »

Chicken with Plums: Better on Paper

27 October 2011 12:55 AM, PDT | The Moving Arts Journal | See recent The Moving Arts Journal news »

It’s a well-worn observation that the book is better than the movie. But what about the graphic novel? It seems reasonable to expect the transition from one predominantly visual medium to another to be smoother. It was pleasing to see Marjane Satrapi’s Persepolis gain wider attention through the animated film adaptation she directed in 2007 with Vincent Paronnaud. While fun, that film still had nowhere near the impact of the original.

 

Satrapi recently paired up with Paronnaud again to direct a film adaptation of her shorter graphic work, Chicken with Plums (Poulet aux Prunes, 2011), this time using predominantly live-action rather than animation. Mathieu Amalric stars as Nasser-Ali, a violinist who decides it’s time to die when his beloved violin is broken. Neither his wife, his two young children, nor his brother can dissuade him. On his elective deathbed, Nasser-Ali recalls his past, above all his doomed relationship with the beautiful Irâne. »

Sitges 2011: Chicken With Plums Review

15 October 2011 11:45 AM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

Marjane Satrapi and Vincent Paronnaud's adaptation of Satrapi's graphic novel Chicken with Plums is a delicious fantasy, one that will leave your heart warm and likely more than a little sad. Presented with a combination of live action and animation, it tells the story of Nasser Ali (Mathieu Amalric), a violinist who has decided to commit suicide after his wife destroys his beloved violin, which he associates with the loss of his true love, a beautiful woman named Iran. The film follows the last few days of his life as he recalls his life story, and why that violin is the only one on which he could ever play. Each day leading up to his death brings a different set of characters to his bedside, »

David Cronenberg and Howard Shore Enlist Metric to Aid ‘Cosmopolis’ Score

13 October 2011 5:00 AM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

David Cronenberg has been a forward-thinking guy at many points in his career, but the overall tone of his films tends more towards the classic than the contemporary. He has relied upon Howard Shore to score his films for over thirty years. While some of those scores have been as unusual as the films they complemented, none have exactly been rock. (Even Crash, an absolutely brilliant score based around reverb and guitar, is far less rock than, say, Neil Young's Dead Man, a similar score.) So it's a surprise to hear that Canadian rock band Metric, of whom you may know thanks to their song 'Black Sheep,' used in Scott Pilgrim, will collaborate with Howard Shore on the score for Cronenberg's upcoming Cosmopolis. The band revealed the collaboration on its official site [1] (via The Playlist [2]). The quote goes: We just confirmed we will be working with our »

13 films you can still see at the London Film Festival

12 October 2011 2:40 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The London Film Festival’s now in full swing, so Michael’s provided a handy guide to what you can still get to see over the next few days...

The 55th London Film Festival is now underway, boasting a programme that includes top-flight flicks like George Clooney’s The Ides Of March, Lynne Ramsey’s We Need To Talk About Kevin, and 360, directed by Fernando Meirelles. However, unless you’re a BFI member, a quick-off-the-mark cinephile, or an industry bigwig, it’s highly likely that you missed the small window of chance for getting tickets for these bigger films.

No need to worry, though, as many of the festival’s 300+ films haven’t yet sold out. Here are just a few notable or geek-friendly deep cuts that, at time of writing, still have tickets on sale.

Despite being one of the festival’s Gala films, two of Anonymous’ screenings still have spare seats going. »

'Hugo' Introduction: Scorsese Invites You to His Latest, Which Will Premiere at the Nyff

10 October 2011 12:14 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

It was speculated all weekend and confirmed this morning that Martin Scorsese's Hugo, a feature adaptation of Brian Selznick's best-selling children's novel, "The Invention of Hugo Cabret", will premiere tonight, October 10, at the New York Film Festival (Nyff) and with that announcement comes an introductory video from Scorsese. To date not much has been revealed of the story of an orphaned boy (Asa Butterfield) who secretly lives in the walls of a busy Paris train station and looks after the clocks and gets caught up in a mystery adventure when he attempts to repair a mechanical man. We've had the one trailer and some shoddy images have surfaced here and there. However, in response to the buzz the film would be showing at Nyff, Jeff Wells at Hollywood Elsewhere received an email from someone claiming to have seen the film and they were quite enthusiastic about it: "Not at all. »

Cronenberg on Directing Robert Pattinson in Cosmopolis

Cronenberg on Directing Robert Pattinson in Cosmopolis

Directing Robert Pattinson in a film is not your run of the mill experience. Pattinson may be famous for his honey-eyed role of the vampire Edward Cullen in the Twilight Saga films, but he has also acted in pictures like Water for Elephants and Remember Me. Remember when his Elephants co-star felt over-shadowed by Pattinson’s appeal? Screaming girls can do that to you, Reese. Don’t feel bad.

In fact, perhaps Pattinson’s most exciting role is yet to come in the unique David Cronenberg thriller, Cosmopolis. I suspect critics will really have an eye on Pattinson’s acting skills this time around and today we can unveil Cronenberg’s thoughts on directing the Twi-star in his new lead role. You can find the video below. Just hit play!

Remember as you are watching this that Cronenberg has directed the likes of Viggo Mortensen, »
