The Twilight star has revealed that he cold-called the Spring Breakers director to ask about working with him.
"I never went to acting school, so this is just me trying to get better," he told Esquire.
"I've literally only done jobs which interest me. There have been two which I auditioned for and didn't get, but other than that..."
He added that he has turned down a couple of big franchise offers, wanting to avoid them after experiencing the success and demands of the Twilight Saga.
Ever since Twilight, Robert Pattinson has set about creating a truly intriguing filmography for a star his age. Already, the talented actor has worked with two extremely talented directors, David Cronenberg and David Michôd, on three thought-provoking films (Cosmopolis and Maps to the Stars with Cronenberg, and The Rover with Michôd). Next up, he’ll appear in films by Werner Herzog (Queen of the Desert), Anton Corbijn (Life), Olivier Assayas (Idol’s Eye), Brady Corbet (The Childhood of a Leader) and James Marsh (Hold on to Me).
Now, we’re hearing that Pattinson has added another appealing provocateur to his list of future projects – the star will be teaming with Spring Breakers writer-director Harmony Korine for a Miami-set gangster movie. Details are sparse, but Korine mentioned in 2013 that he was working on a “Southern Gothic crime family picture,” which is likely also his Pattinson collaboration.
Apparently, Pattinson’s collaboration with »

With Fargo proving that it’s possible to make great television out of excellent films (as we discussed previously), there are now plenty of other big-to-small-screen transitions on the way.
Of particular interest to the geeky-minded will be Syfy’s 13-episode televisual version of Terry Gilliam’s mercilessly mind-bending surreal sci-fi flick 12 Monkeys, which has now found itself a cast.
Cole, Bruce Willis’ time-travelling mental patient in the film, will be played on telly by Aaron Stanford, perhaps best recognised as Pyro from X-Men 2 and X-Men: The Last Stand, although he's also held roles in the 2006 version of The Hills Have Eyes and TV's Nikita.
Production on Syfy's upcoming "12 Monkeys" series begins next month, and along with more details on that we have two new cast members to announce, one of whom is quite near and dear to our horror-loving hearts.
From the Press Release:
Syfy’s adventure thriller "12 Monkeys" will commence series production August 6, 2014, in Toronto, Canada. The season, consisting of 13 episodes, stars Aaron Stanford (as time traveler Cole), Amanda Schull (Dr. Cassandra Railly), Kirk Acevedo (Ramse), and Noah Bean (Aaron Marker).
Syfy also confirms additional casting, inking Tom Noonan (pictured; The House of the Devil, The Roost, "Hell on Wheels") and Emily Hampshire (Cosmopolis, "Rookie Blue") for recurring roles. Noonan portrays a mysterious villain who is the face of the enigmatic Army of the 12 Monkeys. Imposing and intelligent, Noonan’s character will be at the center of the conspiracy. Hampshire will portray Jennifer Goines, a dangerous, unstable mental patient who might have the »

The Big G returns in Godzilla.
In this latest film featuring the overgrown, nuclear halitosis-challenged lizard, Godzilla (who’s been doing what he does since his 1954 self-titled Japanese debut) rises from the depths to do battle with a pair of malevolent creatures that, bolstered by humanity’s scientific arrogance, threaten the planet’s very existence. The larger-than-life battle takes him to the U.S. mainland this time around, specifically San Francisco.
Directed by Gareth Edwards (Monsters) from a screenplay by Max Borenstein and a story by David Callaham, Godzilla features such human cast members as Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Savages), Ken Watanabe (Inception »

Come inside to check out when you'll be able to pick it up and what all is included on the blu-ray discs.

After a decade of TV work, actress Sarah Gadon is quickly becoming a big screen fixture – with appearances in several high profile projects, including The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Cosmopolis, and the period drama Belle. While her part in the Spider-Man sequel was minor (as Oscorp Industries’ resident artificial intelligence K.A.R.I.) the actress received extensive critical praise for her supporting role in Belle - where she portrayed Elizabeth Murray, a young 18th century woman raised in an aristocracy where her main purpose in life is to attract an affluent male suitor.
Elizabeth is a far cry from the strong-willed heroine that Gadon is set to play in Dracula Untold – where she will portray, Mirena, a wise 15th century queen ...

Pictures and Legendary Pictures, pits the world's most famous monster against malevolent creatures who, bolstered by humanity's scientific arrogance, threaten our very existence.

Many of you may have heard by now, the rumors floating around about Robert Pattinson being considered to play Dr. Jones in some sort of new Indiana Jones reboot for Disney/Lucasfilm. While our own sources have raised some eyebrows at the idea, this got our staff to discussing how Disney should move forward with the Indiana Jones franchise, and potentially reboot it. Come inside to see our contributors’ thoughts on the subject and add in your own!
First, let’s talk about this rumor. Over the last couple months, a pair of names have been associated with a new take on Indiana Jones, to lead the franchise into a new generation. The first rumor pegged Bradley Cooper as a possibility, and the latest says that Robert Pattinson may be taking over. Neither of these have jived with previous rumors that Harrison Ford desperately wants to do another Indiana Jones film, »

★★★★☆In Don DeLillo's Cosmopolis, the dutiful limo driver of billionaire asset manager Eric Packer coldly describes how the traffic before them "speaks in quarter inches". The same could be said of the stars of French-Taiwanese collaboration Journey to the West (Xi You, 2014), the experimental new film from Stray Dogs director Tsai Ming-liang, featuring Denis Lavant and Lee Kang-sheng as a Buddhist monk. A pristinely shot, provocative meditation on humankind's rapidly quickening tempo of life, Journey to the West's central conceit was perfectly illustrated by the walkouts of those viewers too impatient to 'waste' 56 minutes of their time at its Berlinale unveiling earlier this year. »

The Rover, David Michôd‘s highly anticipated follow-up to Animal Kingdom, is set in a world 10 years following the collapse of society. Recently, Wamg sat down with David Michôd, Guy Pearce and Robert Pattinson in a small press conference to talk about the film. Check it out below!
In David Michôd’s new film The Rover the rule of the law has disintegrated and life is cheap. The film follows hardened loner Eric (Pearce) as he travels the desolate towns and roads of the outback. When a gang of thieves steals his car they leave behind a wounded Rey (Pattinson) in their wake. Forcing Rey to help track the gang, Eric will go to any lengths to take back the one thing that still matters to him. Michod also wrote the film based on a story he conceived with Joel Edgerton.

Eric Packer (Robert Pattinson) may be a Wall Street billionaire, but he’s far from the libidinous, money-fixated philistine painted by most cultural depictions; he’s an artist in his own right. The endgame of his industry may be monetary, not creative, but he appears to be more attracted to the act of finding patterns within streams of data than the actual wealth it generates. With his egomania, conviction, thirst for control and focus on detail, it’s easy to see him as an auteur figure. I don’t think it’s too much of a stretch to suggest that in adapting DeLillo’s novel about the spread of finance capital, Cronenberg made a movie that’s equally about the rise of digital filmmaking. Both, after all, are mediums inherently built on dematerialisation—financial methods of wealth production don’t involve the exchange of physical goods, and Dv capture is »

The Rover's Us distributor A24 said of the film's performance: "David Michod made an excellent film that received very strong reviews for its unique filmmaking and wonderful performances from Guy Pearce and Robert Pattinson.
"Unfortunately we were unable to find a broader audience this weekend, but have no doubt that the film will gain fans as we continue to push it out in the weeks and months ahead."

Telefilm Canada has confirmed its financial support of nearly $13 million of Canadian tax payers' money towards the production of nine English-language feature films through the 'Canada Feature Film Fund', although there doesn't seem to be anything culturally 'Canadian' about most of their selections, other than the crews that will be working on them.
Among the films receiving money include a psycho horror with a demonic 'Santa Claus', a bio pic about a former Queen of Sweden, the 'relationship' between 'James Dean' and a photographer, a thriller involving a Satanic child abuse sex ring, and an inflatable Sex Doll drug smuggling story:
The films are "After the Ball" (Sean Garrity), "A Christmas Horror Story" (Steven Hoban, Grant Harvey, Brett Sullivan), "Aloft" (Claudia Llosa), "A Worthy Companion" (Jason Sanchez, Carlos Sanchez), "Life" (Anton Corbijn), "Regression" (Alejandro Amenabar), "Rest Home" (Michael Rowe), "The Girl King" (Mika Kaurismäki) and "Zoom" (Pedro Morelli »

Robert Pattinson has been tough to miss ever since breaking out in 2008's "Twilight" as a hunky vampire.
The film catapulted Pattinson to international success seemingly overnight, and after four more "Twilight" films and millions of dollars in the bank, the actor is looking to shake that role. Pattinson has, however, proved his acting chops in indies like "Cosmopolis" and can be seen in the critically-acclaimed thriller "The Rover" opposite Guy Pearce this summer.
From his surprising karaoke partner to his connection with an asteroid, here are 23 things you probably don't know about Robert Pattinson.
1. Pattinson was born May 13, 1986 in London, England to Clare and Richard Pattinson.
2. His father imported vintage cars from the Us, while his mother worked for a modeling agency.
3. The actor was raised Roman Catholic.

(Cbr) As dystopian films go, "The Rover" isn’t your everyday post-apocalyptic cinematic experience. It’s like a "Mad Max" movie directed by Michelangelo Antonioni. Set in Australia about a decade from now, at a point when society has fallen into disarray, the film is writer-director David Michod’s follow-up to the acclaimed 2010 crime drama "Animal Kingdom." "The Rover" follows embittered war veteran Eric (Guy Pearce), who’s lost everything in the massive geopolitical collapse that’s transformed the mineral-rich but desolate Outback into lawless, deadly frontier. In his quest to reclaim his car, his last remaining possession, from the trio of thieves that stole it, Eric embarks on a violence-charged mission of retribution accompanied by Rey (Robert Pattinson), the wounded, not-quite-all-there brother of one of the thieves who begins to question his own loyalties. Bleak, stark and sparsely dialogued, "The Rover" wastes little time trying to orient viewers into its landscape, »

Pattinson became an overnight sensation by playing Edward Cullen in the popular Twilight films, but has been slowly breaking out of his teenage heartthrob image with grittier roles – Water for Elephants (2011), Cosmopolis (2012). The Rover, from writer/director David Michôd, marks Pattinson’s first feature film release since the release of the last Twilight film, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 in 2012, and Pattinson appears happy to leave his Edward Cullen look behind.
Throughout the filming of Twilight, Pattinson kept his hair relatively long due to filming and shocked fans when he suddenly shaved his head for The Rover. Pattinson said he loved the look, telling E! News, “It’s like the skin on the back of your neck, »
