Enough Already, ‘The Lighthouse’ Performance Proves Robert Pattinson Is More Than Worthy Of Respect [Cannes]

This article contains spoilers for “The Lighthouse.”

Despite what the Batman backlash might indicate, Robert Pattinson has come a long way from his sparkly vampire days. Pattinson made his first major appearance as Cedric Diggory in “Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire,” but it wasn’t until his leading role in the “Twilight” saga in 2008 that he became a household name.

Defending Robert Pattinson’s Batman Casting: He’s Way More Than A ‘Twilight’ Heartthrob

Defending Robert Pattinson’s Batman Casting: He’s Way More Than A ‘Twilight’ Heartthrob
The internet went into a predictable frenzy after news broke May 16 that Robert Pattinson had emerged as the leading contender to take over the role of Batman/Bruce Wayne in a new superhero tentpole from Matt Reeves. While the casting has not been made official by Warner Bros., Variety reports the hiring is all but confirmed as Pattinson “is the top choice and the deal is expected to close shortly.” Reeves’ Batman movie is going into pre-production this summer.

Pattinson’s casting sparked some backlash online from Batman lovers and fans of the DC Extended Universe who don’t think casting the “heartthrob from the ‘Twilight’ movies” is a smart idea for one of the most beloved comic book characters. Pattinson would join actors such as Michael Keaton, Christian Bale, and Ben Affleck in playing the Caped Crusader on the big screen. While some fans complained about the casting, many

What Kind of Batman Would Robert Pattinson Be?

What Kind of Batman Would Robert Pattinson Be?
“Yes, Matt Reeves. I shall become a bat.” That’s what the director of The Batman is hoping he’ll hear soon. On Thursday it was reported that the shortlist for the next Caped Crusader has been narrowed down, with Robert Pattinson being the frontrunner ahead of X-Men star Nicholas Hoult. While Pattinson has yet to sign the dotted line, it sounds likely that he’ll be donning the cape and cowl. Pattinson, who broke out in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (2005), and became a Hollywood superstar with the Twilight franchise, has come a long way from his days as ...

Robert Pattinson top choice for new Batman for Matt Reeves, Nicholas Hoult in the mix

It looks like we may finally know who will next don the cape and cowl in Matt ReevesThe Batman. After months (perhaps years given the back-and-forth rumours of Ben Affleck’s continued involvement) of speculation, Variety is reporting that Robert Pattinson looks set to be cast as the new Batman for Warner Bros.

The outlet does make a note that negotiations have yet to conclude, and that X-Men star Nicholas Hoult also remains in the mix, but Pattinson is reportedly the top choice for both Reeves and the studio to assume the mantle. Pattinson’s name has been long rumoured in contention for the role of Batman alongside others such as Armie Hammier or Jake Gyllenhaal, though Pattinson’s age certainly lines up with Reeves’ desire to focus on a younger Batman.

Pattinson is primarily known for his lead role in the Twilight franchise as well as portraying the

The Internet's 10 Best Memes & Reactions To Robert Pattinson As The New Batman

Despite rumors that Armie Hammer would be the next Batman, Warner Bros said that Robert Pattinson was the actor they chose for The Batman. Known for movies like Twilight and Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, it's safe to say that reactions have been all over the place for this casting decision. Based on information that Nicholas Hoult is also in the running, Pattinson as the Dark Knight may not be solidified yet.

Harry Potter: 10 Facts About The Death Eaters That The Movies Leave Out

Prejudiced and malicious to the bone, Death Eaters are the faction that make up Voldemort’s fanatical following. Fans of the Harry Potter film franchise became acquainted with these villains around the time of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. The first sightings of this group in the films came during the scene where Harry and the Weasleys attend the Quidditch World Cup. After that, we see them performing various brazen criminal acts, as they work to do Voldemort’s bidding to take over the wizarding world.

Robert Pattinson calls Christopher Nolan’s latest film “unreal”

For years, Christopher Nolan has been known for keeping his films tightly under wraps while amassing some very high-caliber, and sometimes unexpected, casts for his films. The director has continued that trend with his mysterious ‘event’ film that Warner Bros. has given a 2020 release date for and recently casting Robert Pattinson (High Life), Elizabeth Debicki (Widows) and John David Washington (BlacKkKlansman).

Pattinson, whose career took off by starring in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire and the Twilight franchise, spoke to USA Today about returning to a highly anticipated big blockbuster film after several years doing smaller, independent films but how Nolan’s appeal is to make a big blockbuster feel deeply personal and small scale. He also revealed that Nolan didn’t even give him a script to keep, but instead placed him in a locked room until he finished reading it.

The Best Robert Pattinson Performances: From ‘Good Time’ to ‘High Life’

The Best Robert Pattinson Performances: From ‘Good Time’ to ‘High Life’
Ten years ago, no one would believe — of all the franchises in Hollywood — the blockbuster movie series that would yield the most compelling actors would end up being “The Twilight Saga.” We all know about Kristen Stewart’s extraordinary arthouse endeavors, but the Edward to her Bella is every bit as committed to diving deep into character and working with visionary directors. Robert Pattinson made legions of young women swoon, but the roles he’s chosen since the Stephenie Meyer franchise ended have been as colorful as his romantic vampire was pale.

Like Robert Redford and Brad Pitt before him, Pattinson exudes a profound ambivalence about his heartthrob status and a desire to be thought of as far more than a handsome face. And, like his predecessors, he’s done the work to prove it. Even going back to his Ya origins as Cedric Diggory in the “Harry Potter” films or as Edward in “Twilight,

Harry Potter: 25 Wild Revelations About Hermione And Ron's Relationship

Harry Potter gave us a lot of couples out of its storyline, but the one at the top of the list is Ron and Hermione. The Harry and Ginny coupling has a lot of naysayers, which leaves Ron and Hermione as the best couple out of all others. Since these two are the joint-deuteragonists of the series, it only makes sense that we saw the most of these two compared to the other people who ended up in couples. The romantic tension that surrounded Ron and Hermione made up for most of the romance elements in the series starting from Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, and these two are the best example of a will they-won’t they romance.

Eventually, Ron and Hermione did become a couple at the very end of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, which meant we never got to see if they became

Robert Pattinson and Elizabeth Debicki Jump Aboard Christopher Nolan's New Movie

Robert Pattinson and Elizabeth Debicki Jump Aboard Christopher Nolan's New Movie
Elizabeth Debicki and Robert Pattinson have joined the cast of Christopher Nolan's mysterious upcoming movie. The Pattinson and Debicki casting announcement comes one day after it was announced that BlacKkKlansman actor John David Washington had signed on to star in the movie. As for specifics about Nolan's next project, it has only been described as an "even film," by the studio at this time. Now that casting is taking place, we should get a better idea of what the director/writer has up his sleeve this time around in the coming weeks.

Since there is such limited information about the next Christopher Nolan movie, it isn't clear who Elizabeth Debicki and Robert Pattinson are playing or what their respective characters will be doing. The same can be said about John David Washington's role, other than the fact that he is the lead in the mysterious project. Debicki recently earned

Harry Potter: The 20 Most Powerful Non-Hogwarts Students, Officially Ranked

Fans know a lot when it comes to the students of the Hogwarts wizarding academy, and the top students from that school remain some of the most powerful and accomplished wizards in history. When names like Harry Potter rank low on the list of the best students at Hogwarts, it is clear that there have been some tremendous wizards and witches that walked through its halls. Just looking at names like Dumbledore and Voldemort proves that the school has delivered the most powerful men and women in the realm of the Harry Potter world. However, Hogwarts is just one school that exists in this fictional world.

There are a total of eight schools in the world of Harry Potter. While Hogwarts is located in Scotland, there are also schools in France, Brazil, North America, Japan, Uganda, Russia, and Northern Europe. During the story told in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire,

Is There Bias Against Movies With VFX by Awards Voters?

  • Variety
Cinema lives or dies by illusion. To make stories work, movies must take audiences to another place, suspend their disbelief and thrill them. And effects, whether created in-camera or in post-production or a combination of the two, have always been among the tools used by filmmakers to make that happen.

But despite their vital role, visual effects have qualified for a five-slot Oscar category in only the past decade, and films deemed “heavy” on VFX have often found themselves on the outs in the acting and writing categories.

The effects category has evolved over time. In 1963, the special effects award was removed and two categories — one for visual effects and one for sound effects — were created. Then, from 1977 to 1979, a maximum number of five VFX nominees were permitted, though 1979 was the first year to max out nominations. From 1980 to 1995, two or three films could be nommed in the VFX category

Rupert Grint Can’t Watch Past The Third Harry Potter Movie

Lots of actors don’t enjoy the experience of watching their own movies, but that feeling must be much more intense for child stars. Take Rupert Grint, for example. The British actor known the world over for playing the Boy Who Lived’s best pal Ron Weasley in the Harry Potter movies has revealed that he can’t watch past the third entry in the franchise because of his own performances.

To promote his role in The ABC Murders, a BBC adaptation of the Agatha Christie novel, Grint spoke to Radio Times and explained that he can watch and enjoy the first couple of films, but any of the later ones he can’t because he struggles to distance himself from his turn as Ron.

Harry Potter: 20 Things Fans Didn’t Know About The Lestrange Family

What would the Harry Potter series have been like without prejudice? We may remember the novels for giving us a gateway to the fantastic world of magic, but the wizarding world was filled with corruption, bigotry, and extremism. It wasn’t apparent up until perhaps Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, but the issue of blood supremacy had been mentioned right from Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone.

Certain families were acknowledged as purebloods and while Harry’s social circle always played down the importance of being a pureblood, even those people agreed there was something worth mentioning about being one. This was a mentality engrained within every witch and wizard who was raised among magic, and what family is better to promote such bigotry than the Malfoys and the Lestranges? Both families were connected closely, both my marriage and by blood. While the Malfoys were bigoted, they

Harry Potter: 20 Weirdest Details About Nagini's Anatomy

Even if you’re just a casual fan of Harry Potter, you’re more than likely to have strong impressions of the core characters in the franchise. In fact, J.K. Rowling has spun a world so full of magic that even those unacquainted with the Boy Who Lived are bound to remember key images and associations. There’s Harry and his lightning-shaped scar, Ron with his bright orange hair, and Hermione with her bushy brown mane. Of course, the heroes need a formidable antagonist to go up against to make an engaging story, and Voldemort is nothing short of memorable with his serpentine features and faithful snake companion, Nagini.

Not much was known about Nagini when she first appeared in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. Our introduction to Voldemort’s slithering serpent was when she, Voldemort, and Peter Pettigrew returned to the Riddle House in Little Hangleton. Frank Bryce,
