Ruining the Freudian allure of living fast and dying young by only really caring about the second part, Life is more successful as a reminder to prep your will than it is as a character study. This slice of biopic life finds actor James Dean as he stands on the precipice of stardom, and therefore, his untimely death. Director Anton Corbijn’s sleepy deconstruction of a Golden Age icon proves all too effective at exposing the duller details of Hollywood’s affair with Dean, before he became an industry legend and early martyr of American youth culture.
Patient pacing, the masks separating private and public appearance, the worth of an individual man: all interests of Life that also made Corbijn’s previous film, A Most Wanted Man, a thoughtful exercise in screw-tightening espionage. But the gulf of engagement one feels between modern terror politics and Silent Generation celebrity is wide »

While a movie about James Dean starring Robert Pattinson didn't quite take off the way one would think, "Life" is nonetheless an intriguing proposition with Anton Corbijn ("The American," "Control") behind the camera, and Dane DeHaan playing the tragic cinematic icon. This isn't a movie about his death, but rather the specific moment in Dean's life that made him a legend in images. Read More: Over 30 New Images & An International Poster For 'Life' Starring Robert Pattinson & Dane DeHaan Written by Luke Davies ("Candy"), the movie chronicles the relationship between Dean and Life photographer, Dennis Stock, who manages to break through to the ephemeral star and capture the aura that would make him beloved by millions. The movie itself is a bit mixed (here's our review) but you can see for yourself when it opens on December 4th. Watch a new international trailer and clip below. [Life The Movie] »

Read on to see more of Fka and Rob, and then check out their many love-filled moments together. »

Robert Pattinson and Fka twigs have been keeping their love low-key recently, but theirs remains an international romance. The engaged couple were spotted arriving at London's Heathrow Airport Sunday from Los Angeles. The Twilight star was ever the gentleman and took care of the luggage so that his fiancée wouldn't have to lift a finger. Pushing their bags through the terminal, Pattinson kept his hood up so as to be discreet while twigs walked behind him with her sunglasses on. Both stars looked incredibly comfortable in their travel garb, but we're guessing they were actually suffering from some serious jet lag. R.Pattz, 29, and twigs, 27, were in California for a few weeks, where they »
Ever since I saw the first clip of Life, I've been overwhelmingly curious about the film. Photojournalist Dennis Stock (Robert Pattinson) wants to capture a young, unknown James Dean (Dane DeHaan) on camera for Life magazine, but no one believes that this guy will be a star one day. Of course, we know how the story ends, but the fun is in getting there. The retro vibe reminds me of another DeHaan film, Kill Your Darlings, but, of course, with less murder and no Daniel Radcliffe in sight. As the trailer goes on, James helps Dennis realize that the story he's making really isn't about James; it's about Dennis. (Ah, full circle!) The movie will be released in theaters and on iTunes on Dec. 4. Here's the original trailer: »

Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart have more than “Twilight” in common. They have both played characters in signature films about the ’50s Beat Generation, which gave birth to hipster cool, the counter-culture and anti-establishment ethos. The ensemble cast of On the Road included Garrett Hedlund, Sam Riley, Kristen Stewart, Alice Braga, Amy Adams, Tom Sturridge, Danny Morgan, Elisabeth Moss, Kirsten Dunst and Viggo Mortensen. ...Read More »

Robert Pattinson continues to explore and expand his acting abilities post-"Twilight" by taking on Life photographer Dennis Stock, who gave the world candid photographs of the late actor James Dean, including his most iconic image in a rain-drenched New York. "Life" is about the friendship between the "East of Eden" actor and the photographer as they travel cross-country and promises to be an intimate portrait of these two figures. The trailer features DeHaan as the perpetually youthful Dean, the original cinematic rebel whose life was cut short in a tragic car accident. Nonetheless, Dean managed to leave behind an impressive filmography and his death thrust him into the spotlight as a legend. The trailer sheds some light into Dean's life, while also telling the story of a short friendship. The film also stars Joel Edgerton and Ben Kingsley as Jack Warner. "Life" will open in theaters and iTunes on December 4. Read More: Watch: Anton. »

"I lose myself in my roles, I don't want to lose myself in all this other stuff!" Time to revisit the past. A brand new official Us trailer has arrived for Anton Corbijn's film Life, a drama starring Robert Pattinson as photographer Dennis Stock, and Dane DeHaan as his subject, soon-to-be-an-icon actor James Dean. The story follows Stock who strikes up a friendship with Dean while photographing him. The travel around the country, and Dean learns what it's like to be famous. I am not a fan of this film at all (my review), the performances aren't even that great; I recommend staying away. But if this captures your interest, enjoy it. Here's the newest Us trailer for Anton Corbijn's Life, originally found via Collider: Corbijn's follow-up to A Most Wanted Man, Life captures the nuances and complexities of the relationship between photographer and subject in a way »

“The Huntsman” has been given a new, more militant title.
The follow-up to 2012’s “Snow White and the Huntsman” will henceforth be known as “The Huntsman Winter’s War.” The new film hits theaters on April 22, where it faces off against the Warner Bros. comedy “Keanu,” which is written by Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele.
The fantasy adventure ditches original star Kristen Stewart (who made headlines and broke a million tween hearts for getting caught cheating on Robert Pattinson with director Rupert Sanders), but does bring back Chris Hemsworth and Charlize Theron. They are joined by Jessica Chastain and Emily Blunt. Cedric Nicolas-Troyan takes over directing duties from Sanders.
Blunt plays Theron’s sister, who flees their kingdom after suffering a betrayal. She gains the ability to freeze any enemy, becoming an ice queen who holes up in a wintery palace. Hemsworth and Chastain play her trusted lieutenants. But they »

Despite so few films in his résumé before an untimely death, James Dean was immortalized as one of Hollywood’s most iconic actors, and this December will bring another look at a more intimate aspect of his life. As scripted by Luke Davies and directed by Anton Corbijn, Life centers on the relationship between Dean (Dane DeHaan) and Life Magazine‘s Dennis Stock (Robert Pattinson), the latter of whom had been tasked with capturing the up-and-coming actor less than a year before his rise to stardom and tragic death.
We said in our review from Berlin, “Corbijn has successfully offset script weaknesses with striking aesthetics in the past, but this time his characteristic visual flair is surprisingly lacking. Conventionally shot — and with props and production design much too pristine to appear genuine — Life has the look of a period piece made for television (in fact, TV series such as Mad »

Robert Pattinson and Fka Twigs attended the 8th Annual Go Campaign Gala in La on Thursday night. Fka stole the show in her gorgeous white jumpsuit, which she even kept on for what looking like a scintillating performance. The sweet couple posed even hung out with the one and only Katy Perry, who at one point snagged a snap with Kate Hudson. It's been a couple weeks of date nights for Rob and Fka - they popped up at the Mobo Awards last week, where Fka performed, and had a lovely night out in London on Tuesday night. Although the pair has been engaged for six months, they clearly don't seem to be in any rush to the altar. But as long as all the cute moments keep coming, they can take all the time they need. Keep reading to see more pictures from their night out. »

Kate Hudson linked up with Katy Perry at the Go Campaign Gala in La on Thursday night. The actress - who we've been seeing quite a lot of lately - posed for photos with Katy during the event, which also brought out Robert Pattinson and his fiancée, Fka Twigs. Seeing Kate and Katy together isn't just fun because they're both gorgeous, glamorous celebrities but also because they happen to have the same name; Katy's birth name is Katheryn Hudson, and she decided to use her mother's maiden name, Perry, when she started her music career specifically because she didn't want to be confused with Kate Hudson. Funny, right? See the name twins hanging out together in La, then check out more real celebrity names you may not have known. »

How did Robert Pattinson get so lucky to be sandwiched by two beautiful ladies? The 29-year-old Twilight series hunk joined his fiancé, British singer Fka twigs, on a date night of sorts at the 8th Annual Go Campaign Gala in Beverly Hills Thursday. Pattinson became an ambassador for the nonprofit organization, which works to aid orphans and vulnerable children worldwide, just this year. While the lovebirds canoodled, they were serendipitously joined by pop sensation Katy Perry, who ended up getting seated next to Pattinson at the event. The Hollywood trio definitely brought their A-game when it came to eye-catching fashions for the evening. The actor arrived in a black suit, »
A little awkward! Kate Hudson looked a tad out of place while attending a star-studded charity event, the Go Campaign's 8th annual Go Go Gala on Thursday, Nov. 12. Mingling with celebs like Katy Perry, Robert Pattinson, Fka twigs, and Ewan McGregor, who were in cocktail attire, Hudson, 36, nonchalantly rocked a pair of light-wash denim with a tan pom-pom sweater and knee-high chestnut boots. The How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days star, who was a surprise guest at the fundraiser, kept a low profile in [...] »
Katy Perry, is that you? We hardly recognized the "Part of Me" singer at the Go Campaign's 8th annual Go Go Gala in Beverly Hills on Thursday, Nov. 12, because she was sporting such an unexpectedly demure hairstyle. Perry, 31, was rocking a refreshingly normal haircut — a jet-black bob with slightly curled ends, and parted on the side, as she walked the carpet for the star-studded charity event, which was attended by the likes of Robert Pattinson and Kate Hudson. Perry donned the shorter style just three [...] »
Fawning over his leading lady.

Clad in a white jumpsuit, Fka twigs, 27, and her husband-to-be, 29, sat next to Perry for the duration of the evening. The "Firework" singer, 31, wore a black and purple dress, rocked black cherry [...] »

Robert Pattinson and Fka Twigs attended Sushisamba's third anniversary party in London on Tuesday. The couple, who has been engaged since April, kept close and shared loving looks over the course of the night. The outing comes just a week after their adorable appearance at the Mobo Awards in Leeds, England, where Fka put on a sizzling hot performance. When it comes to the impending wedding, details have been fairly scarce, but a source revealed in September that it's still on and the two are "excited to be married." Keep reading to see the latest pictures of Fka and Rob, then check out her recent interview with Paper Magazine. »

Hey, Queen: Herzog Can’t Convey Passion in the Desert
Acclaim does not seem to be the fate of Werner Herzog’s latest film, the long gestating and independently produced Queen of the Desert, a biopic of explorer Gertrude Bell, a name holding more reverence abroad and to aficionados of British history. In the German auteur’s first narrative feature since the delightfully weird 2009 double trouble duo of Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans and My Son My Son What Have Ye Done?, Herzog’s attempt at crowning Bell with a rightful epic legacy of her own falls short in many regards, though most noticeably with stupendously distracting casting choices. Herzog has purportedly refashioned his historical drama with a more streamlined cut. Despite a number of ambitious elements evident throughout the oddly textured feature, it remains a disappointing entry from the usually enigmatic director.
Beginning in 1902, Oxford educated aristocrat »
