Indio, Calif. (AP) — When it first started in 1999, Coachella was a couple of stages and a dance tent. Tickets were $65. A few dusty stands sold hot dogs and Cokes. It was the end of grunge and the start of a new millennium, and it was all about the music. All for one weekend. Now, tickets start at $375. Gourmet menus and VIP packages abound. And dozens of companies have hopped on the Coachella bandwagon, turning the music festival — now two back-to-back weekends — into a marketing hotspot. Adidas, Details magazine, Harper's Bazaar and Lacoste are just some of the brands that host offsite festival events for stylish celebrity guests. Rolling Stone executive editor Nathan Brackett said the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival has become a destination for fans and brands because organizers consistently deliver compelling lineups of diverse and unconventional musical acts. A reunited OutKast headlines this year's festival, and other acts include Arcade Fire, »
Robert Pattinson is ''borderline obsessed'' with 'The X Factor'. The Hollywood hunk has admitted he can't get enough of Simon Cowell's talent shows, even though he knows the singing competition doesn't fit in with his own ''musical beliefs''.

''I am borderline obsessed with Simon Cowell shows and spend my nights in bed watching them on my tablet.'' Later this year, both the media mogul and former judge Cheryl Cole will make their return to the »

As it turns out, you can take the vampire out of Twilight and find some pretty unexpected results. With The Rover, the new film from director and writer David Michôd (Animal Kingdom), Robert Pattinson sheds his sparkly teen vampire image yet again to take part in a dark and dreary drama devoid of all supernatural intervention. Pack all your girlish screams away somewhere, because this isn’t the time or place. “Anarchy is loosed upon the world,” and it’s up to Eric (Guy Pearce) to dig through that chaos as “things fall apart” in the Australian outback (things are really bleak out there). His quest: to hunt down a strange band of criminals who have taken hold of his last possession as he attempts to stay alive and keep his head above water in the process. In his journey, he meets Rey (Pattinson), one of the members of the gang who have messed with his life »

Robert Pattinson is reportedly scouring the landscape for “random hookups” and doesn’t want a steady relationship according to a new report by a tabloid Web site that rarely gets its Robert Pattinson stories straight. So believe it? If the report is true, it’s contrary to everything the “Twilight” hunk has ever said in recent interviews and contrary to his own behavior. ...Read More »
The first full-length trailer for David Michod's Sci-Fi Western The Rover is here. And it looks as gritty, brutal and gripping as we were hoping. Guy Pearce and Robert Pattinson show prominent dramatic chops in the trailer below, in a tale that follows a loner (Pearce) as he hunts down the gang who stole his car from a desolate town in the outback, with the forced assistance of a wounded man (Pattinson) left behind by said gang.

Robert Pattinson drives a limo around a city-full of neurotic, self-obsessed Angelenos in Cronenberg's satire on the Hollywood star system
David Cronenberg: 'I never thought of myself as a prophet'
Cronenberg joins Cannes 2014 line-up
You used to know what you were getting with a David Cronenberg movie: icky body horror in the 80s and 90s, stylish and violent gangland thrillers in the noughties. Now, at 71, the Canadian film-maker appears to be embarking on a new era in which he hones in on the tristesse and ennui of the rich and famous with elliptical detachment.
Maps to the Stars, the first trailer for which hit the web earlier this week, will follow Cosmopolis to the Cannes film festival next month. Like its predecessor, Cronenberg's film appears to feature plenty of Robert Pattinson getting his rocks off in a rather swanky limo. But this time around the action is transferred from New York to Los Angeles. »

Fans of body horror master David Cronenberg will be hoping for a late career revival when his new film, 2014's Maps to the Stars, has its grand unveiling at Cannes this May, particularly after the joint disappointment of 2011 psychoanalysis drama A Dangerous Method and the overly faithful Cosmopolis (2012). Enlisting A-List stars Mia Wasikowska, Julianne Moore, John Cusack and Robert Pattinson, the film sets itself up as an acerbic portrait of celebrity competition and madness in the shallow waters of Hollywood. Dr. Stafford Weiss (the ever-sleazy Cusack) is a self-help guru while his wife, Christina (Olivia Wilde), manages the career of an obnoxious millionaire child star, Benjie (Evan Bird), who has just checked out of a stint in a drug rehab clinic and is ready to gte back into acting.

In 2010, David Michod brought us Animal Kingdom - a brutal and gripping drama about an Australian crime family and a teenager's attempts to escape its clutches. It was a superbly acted and observed film, which Michod spent several years writing and perfecting. In fact, we liked Animal Kingdom so much, it made the number one spot in our list of underrated films of 2010.
Four years on, and Michod's back with his second feature, The Rover. Set in a post-apocalyptic, near-future Australia, it stars Guy Pearce (who was great in Animal Kingdom, incidentally) as a traveller whose car is stolen by a gang of vicious criminals, who also leave a seriously injured member of their own group (that'd be Robert Pattinson) in the process. Together, they »
Animal Kingdom director David Michôd's post-apocalyptic Western The Rover is set to premiere at Cannes next month, and judging by the trailer, festival-goers can expect a lot of bleak, parched landscapes, Australian accents (at least, we think that's what Robert Pattinson is going for) and Rust Cohle-style macho philosophizing. Also: a solid amount of Guy Pearce/Robert Pattinson bromance, which is a draw that should not be underestimated. »

‘The Rover’ trailer HD: Robert Pattinson and Guy Pearce in David Michôd’s Australian Outback-set thriller (photo: Robert Pattinson in ‘The Rover’) The Rover, David Michôd’s futuristic, Australian Outback-set thriller that will premiere at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival (Midnight Screenings), has a new trailer. Guy Pearce and Robert Pattinson star in this dark tale about a middle-aged man, Eric (Pearce), hunting down the members of a gang who have stolen his last and most prized possession: his beat-up car. Pattinson, best known as the sparkling vampire Edward Cullen in the Twilight film series, plays a (now) former member of the gang, Rey — left behind to die after he’s seriously injured in a fight. See The Rover trailer below. The youthful Rey, in fact, is unlike the other gang members. “If you don’t learn to fight," Eric warns him in a hard-to-understand mumble, "your death’s gonna come real soon. »

Today there's good news for Robert Pattinson fans and pyromaniacs alike: The first trailer for David Cronenberg's "Maps to the Stars" has finally been released, and it looks downright amazing. The movie, which will likely have its first screening next month at the Cannes Film Festival, tells the story of a dark and sordid series of entanglements up in the Hollywood hills. Julianne Moore stars as Havana Segrand, an actress in search of a new ...

Coming from Animal Kingdom director David Michod, The Rover images a future where the world has become a wasteland after the collapse of society. Into this desolate hell comes Eric (Guy Pearce), a loner, who must team up with Ray (Robert Pattinson) after Ray's gang steal Eric's car and leave him for dead. Mixing in heavy drama with some fantastic imagery (just check out the car crash at 0:44), this latest trailer gives a real taste of what to expect, especially the promise of some fantastic performances from the leads. Many will continue to throw Twilight in Pattinson's face, but since that franchise ended, he has been really trying to get out of his comfort zone, more often than not showing he is more than Edward Cullen. Released: 13th June (U.S.)/ 22nd August (Irl/U.K.) »

The crime drama, set in the Australian desert, follows main character Eric (played by Guy Pearce) as he sets out to track down a gang of criminals who have stolen his last possession. Along the way he meets Rey (Pattinson), an injured member of the gang who is left behind near the start of the trailer.
The clip ominously states that “anarchy is loosed upon the world,” and from the looks of it, Pearce and Pattinson’s characters will come up against some rather formidable enemies along their journey. “If you don’t learn to fight, your death’s going to come real soon,” Eric warns Rey.

Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart may both be headed to Cannes! The famous exes both have movies scheduled to appear during the upcoming 2014 Cannes Film Festival in France. Pattinson has two films making their debut at the festival: Maps to the Stars, the racy Hollywood drama in which R.Pattz has a steamy sex scene with Julianne Moore, and The Rover, which takes place in the Australian outback. As for Stewart, her film Clouds of Sils Maria has been selected to appear. That means the former Twilight couple could be very close to reuniting across the pond next month (Twi-hards can only hope!). Speaking of Cannes couples, Ryan Gosling's directorial debut, Lost River, will appear at »

Paul Thomas Anderson’s “Inherent Vice.” Terrence Malick’s “Knight of Cups.” Tim Burton’s “Big Eyes.” Hou Hsiao Hsien’s “The Assassin.” Clint Eastwood’s “Jersey Boys.” Woody Allen’s “Magic in the Moonlight.” Doug Liman’s “Edge of Tomorrow.” Stephen Frear’s untitled Lance Armstrong biopic. Thomas Vinterberg’s “Far From the Madding Crowd.” Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu’s “Birdman.”
The list of films and filmmakers once rumored to be hot prospects for the Cannes Film Festival, only to be go unmentioned during this morning’s official selection announcement, is, as usual, a long and tantalizing one — so tantalizing, in fact, that some festgoers may find themselves surveying the actual lineup today with a mild sense of deflation, even disappointment. I’ll be the first to admit that those of us fortunate enough to attend film festivals on a regular basis can too often lapse into a posture of whiny, »
