More Art Shows Us How Robert Pattinson Could Look As The Next Batman

Robert Pattinson isn’t the first person that springs to mind when one thinks of the Caped Crusader.

The former Twilight star has spent the past few years digging into one complex role after another – think The Lost City of Z or High Life, the futuristic sci-fi film for which he’s found much acclaim and praise from critics – but according to the latest Internet scuttlebutt, Pattinson is indeed being eyed for Matt ReevesThe Batman.

Of course, he’s just one name on what’s apparently a very long shortlist that features big talent like Armie Hammer and industry veteran Jon Hamm, though if recent reports are to be trusted, it sounds like Warner Bros. will skew younger (i.e. mid-20s or early 30s) when choosing their Bruce Wayne. Based on that criteria alone, Robert Pattinson would be a decent pick, and we now have some new fan

Here’s How Robert Pattinson Could Look As The Next Batman

Robert Pattinson isn’t the first name that springs to mind when one thinks of the Dark Knight.

The former Twilight star has spent the past few years gobbling up one complex role after another – think The Lost City of Z or High Life, the futuristic sci-fi film for which he’s received near-universal acclaim – but according to the latest Internet scuttlebutt, Pattinson is being considered for The Batman.

He’s seemingly part of a very long shortlist that features big-name actors like Armie Hammer and industry veteran Jon Hamm, though if recent intel is to be believed, we understand Warner Bros. will skew younger (i.e. mid-20s or early 30s) when selecting their next Bruce Wayne. Based on that criteria alone, Robert Pattinson fits the bill quite nicely, so leave it to concept artist extraordinaire BossLogic to render a new piece which imagines Pattinson in the role of Gotham’s poster boy.

BossLogic Imagines Robert Pattinson as Bruce Wayne in The Batman

BossLogic Imagines Robert Pattinson as Bruce Wayne in The Batman
All eyes are currently on who will become our next big screen Batman and, should we consider former Twilight star Robert Pattinson? Many may cringe at the mere thought, but it may not be as absurd as it sounds. And some new fan art that has surfaced online provides a very convincing case. The era of Ben Affleck as The Batman is over, as un-glorious as it all may have been. It's time for someone else to snatch up a big opportunity and maybe, just maybe, Pattinson should be that guy.

Artist BossLogic, who very regularly does renditions of various actors in rumored or newly cast roles, recently decided to take it upon himself to show us what Robert Pattinson would look like as Batman. Or Bruce Wayne, rather. The actor is standing against a wall, cleaned up and polished in a fancy suit, with his shadow taking the form of his alter ego's silhouette.

Robert Pattinson Reportedly Being Eyed For The Next Batman

From Twilight to Gotham City?

That’s the word on the street (read: Twitter), after a piece of DC-themed artwork emerged from the illustrious BossLogic. Taking a short hiatus from the brutal world of Mortal Kombat, the concept artist extraordinaire today published a moody piece inspired by The Batman, which features none other than Robert Pattinson as Gotham’s Caped Crusader.

For the record, the Matt Reeves-directed feature is yet to identify its Bruce Wayne; all we know for sure is that Ben Affleck has officially hung up his cape and cowl for good. But the intense, Bat-shaped spotlight that’s currently illuminating The Batman has led to Armie Hammer, Jon Hamm and even Nick Jonas all being linked with the coveted role.

And at least according to BossLogic, Pattinson is among those in the running:

Great Actor/Director Collaborations of the 21st Century

  • HeyUGuys
Filmmaking is perhaps the greatest collaborative artform in the modern world. It may take a village to raise a child, but it certainly takes an army to bring a film to the big screen. Despite the illusory apex of the auteur the very best filmmakers are those who embrace the ensemble, both in front of and behind the camera. Just as any artist will search the creative landscape for their muse, so too have film directors discovered leading actors with whom they spark, creating something truly special together.

Johns Wayne and Ford made soulful, searching epics together, the many films of Akira Kurosawa would have been far less luminous had he never met and cast the great Toshirô Mifune. When Pedro Almodóvar met Penélope Cruz did they know what cinematic electricity would fly when she appeared in front of his camera? Maybe not. But it is these collaborations between the

The 20 Most Anticipated Movies of 2019
For all of the constant talk about “the death of cinema,” 2018 was yet another incredible year at the movies. Some of the most remarkable films could be seen coming a mile away (e.g. “Black Panther”) while others seemingly came out of nowhere (e.g. “Madeline’s Madeline”) to remind us that we’re still scratching at the surface of what this medium has to offer. In that light, it’s hard not to get excited about what 2019 might have in store. We’ve already seen 22 great films that are slated to hit theaters in the next 12 months, and those titles will soon be joined by new efforts from the likes of Quentin Tarantino, Kore-eda Hirokazu, Dee Rees, Mia Hansen-Løve, Greta Gerwig, Jordan Peele, and Josephine Decker, in addition to major franchise releases like “Star Wars: Episode IX” and — of course — “Detective Pikachu.” We can’t wait to start watching.

Brad Pitt’s Sci-Fi Epic ‘Ad Astra’ Gets Bumped to May 2019, but It’s Still ‘Far From Finished’

Brad Pitt’s Sci-Fi Epic ‘Ad Astra’ Gets Bumped to May 2019, but It’s Still ‘Far From Finished’
Quentin Tarantino’s “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” is the upcoming Brad Pitt release everyone can’t stop talking about right now, but the actor has another project set to open before “Hollywood” that ought to be on everyone’s radar. At least, that is if it actually opens in 2019 at all. Pitt is the lead in James Gray’s science-fiction epic “Ad Astra,” and the director recently cast doubt on meeting the film’s deadline while speaking with The Film Stage.

“It’s exciting, but it’s far from finished,” Gray said when asked for “Ad Astra” updates. “I’m here [at the Marrakech Film Festival], a little bit on vacation. I’m really tired because the previous movie [“The Lost City of Z”] was physically very difficult. It was both Europe and the jungle and this one I thought would be easier. Not easier like an easy movie to make but, like,

James Gray: Film Festivals Are Problematic Because Directors and Critics Are Bad at Judging Films

James Gray: Film Festivals Are Problematic Because Directors and Critics Are Bad at Judging Films
“The Immigrant” and “The Lost City of Z” director James Gray is currently serving as jury president at the 2018 Marrakech Film Festival, but doing so has only made it more clear why film festival culture is so problematic. In Gray’s eyes, having festival juries comprised of filmmakers does the movies in competition no favor, nor do the film critics who have to immediately review a film after seeing it.

“The number one problem I have with this kind of festival situation is that there’s always this temptation to classify the movie immediately and if you look at it—and I’ve tried to warn my fellow jurors of this—directors and movie critics are the worst people to judge movies!” Gray said during an interview with The Film Stage.

“Directors are always thinking, ‘I could do that,'” the director continued. “Critics are always saying, ‘This part of

James Gray on ‘Ad Astra,’ Cannes Woes, Harvey Weinstein, and the Only Way Cinema Can Be Reinvented

James Gray has been carving his own idiosyncratic path through Hollywood and beyond for more than two decades. At 25 he was the toast of Venice, picking up the Silver Lion for his debut feature Little Odessa, a triumph that would lead him–for better and worse–to Harvey Weinstein, Miramax, and a rocky relationship with Cannes. His latest film, The Lost City of Z, was a critical hit but came up short at the box office. However, it was enough to convince Brad Pitt–whose Plan B studio produced Lost City–to star in Gray’s next project: Ad Astra, a science fiction film arriving this May that Gray has compared it to Joseph Conrad’s Heart of Darkness.

The busy director took a break from post-production on Ad Astra to act as Jury President at the Marrakech Film Festival. We found him in the city’s Medina, seated in

‘The Ballad of Buster Scruggs’ Film Review: Coen Brothers Western Anthology Makes for an Uneven Binge

  • The Wrap
It’s only fitting that the Coen Brothers new project is backed by Netflix since it’s a Western-themed anthology film that plays like the forced-binge experience of an anthology TV series.

While the Coens claim in the press notes for “The Ballad of Buster Scruggs” that they were inspired by “those films made in Italy in the ’60s which set side-by-side the work of different directors on a common theme,” they were apparently so inspired that they made an anthology movie as wildly uneven as the ones they’re aping.

None of the Coens’ tales of the Old West is an outright dud, but the movie never matches the eponymous opening sequence, starring Tim Blake Nelson as a white-hatted singing cowboy with a tune in his heart, a kind word for everyone he meets, and an exceedingly itchy trigger finger. It’s like the collaboration Gene Autry and Sam Peckinpah never made,

Johnny Depp signs up for Minamata and Waiting for the Barbarians

Johnny Depp has added two projects to his upcoming slate in the independent drama Minamata and an adaptation of J.M. Coetzee’s novel Waiting for the Barbarians, the latter of which he will also produce through his Infinitum Nihil production company.

Minimata is set to be directed by Andrew Levitas (Lullaby) and will see Depp taking on the role of war photographer W. Eugene Smith, who will begin the film as a recluse, the glory days of World War II behind him. However, a commission from Life Magazine convinces him to return to Japan to expose the story of the annihilation of a coastal community through mercury poisoning.

“Working with Johnny to give voice to those who have been silently suffering is a responsibility we do not take lightly,” said director Levitas. “Much like Eugene Smith in 1971, we could not feel more privileged or humbled to be tasked with the

Leonardo DiCaprio and Martin Scorsese Reunite For ‘Killers Of The Flower Moon’

Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio are getting the band back together for Killers Of The Flower Moon, a new film which should be set for cinemas for 2020.

Deadline confirmed the news of the new project, which will be adapted from the book by David Grann (the man behind The Lost City Of Z). Eric Roth, the scribe who adapted Forrest Gump a couple of decades back, will write the screenplay.

Here’s the official synopsis for the source book:

At the end of the nineteenth century, the Osage Indians were driven onto a presumed worthless expanse of land in northeastern Oklahoma. But their territory turned out to be atop one of the largest oil deposits in the United States; to obtain that oil, prospectors were required to pay the tribe for leases and royalties. By the 1920s, the members of Osage Nation had become the wealthiest people per capita in the world.

Martin Scorsese’s ‘Killers of the Flower Moon,’ Starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Begins Production This Summer

As Martin Scorsese toils away in the editing room on The Irishman–his long-gestating crime epic starring Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, Joe Pesci, Harvey Keitel, and Bobby Cannavale–ahead of a hopeful release next year, the director shows little signs of slowing down.

His adaptation of Killers of the Flower Moon: The Osage Murders and the Birth of the FBI, led by Leonardo DiCaprio, is finally confirmed to begin production in the summer with backing from Imperative Entertainment. Based on the book from David Grann, the author behind The Lost City of Z, Eric Roth (Forrest Gump, The Good Shepherd) has penned the script that follows the real-life conspiracy surrounding the murders of people in Oklahoma’s Osage Indian tribe after oil was found on their land.

“When I read David Grann’s book, I immediately started seeing it — the people, the settings, the action — and I knew that

Must See Movies of 2019

David Crow Don Kaye Kayti Burt Mike Cecchini John Saavedra Oct 1, 2018

We look into the crystal ball and see what to anticipate from the movies of 2019!

It is fair to say that there is still a lot of time left on the cinematic calendar of 2018. With awards season only taking its first yawning breath out of Telluride and Toronto, most moviegoers haven’t even seen Hollywood and indie cinema’s biggest heavy hitters. Still, the summer is over and the air is starting to cool, so we think it is a ripe time to already start planning next year’s harvest and the many possibilities therein.

Obviously there are the big studio blockbusters that feature Iron Mans and Spider-Mans alike, plus the triumphant return of Patty Jenkins and Gal Gadot’s superior version of Diana Prince, but there are also a variety of projects from legendary auteurs like Martin Scorsese and Quentin Tarantino,

‘Bel Canto': Inside the Beloved Novel’s Long Path to the Big Screen (Guest Blog)
There are numerous ways to get a book to screen: by gut instinct, by pre-emptive calculation, by sheer luck. But the best ones may be those done the right way for the right reason, out of pure passion. Case in point: “Bel Canto,” which hits theaters today.

The novel, by Ann Patchett, became a best-seller not long after it was published in 2001. It tells the harrowing tale of an opera star and others of different nationalities being held hostage in a mansion in an unnamed South American country. Even (or perhaps especially) after 9/11, people continued to read this tale of terrorism. What is rather amazing is that it has taken over 16 years to be adapted to the screen.

Not that someone wasn’t trying throughout those years. When producer Caroline Baron read the novel, she instinctively believed she was the one to turn it into a movie. She had produced

Robert Pattinson Won’t Rule Out a ‘Twilight’ Reunion: ‘I’m Ready to Play 17 at a Moment’s Notice’
Robert Pattinson may have graduated from “Twilight” to increasingly out-there auteur projects, but that doesn’t mean he’d rule out a return to the franchise that made him a star. Speaking to Variety from Tiff, where he’s premiering “High Life” alongside Claire Denis, the actor was asked about the vampiric Ya series he starred in alongside Kristen Stewart — and, whether joking or not, appeared enthusiastic about a potential reunion.

“Whenever anyone says [‘Twilight’]’s their guilty pleasure, it’s like, you say guilty, what you really mean is just pleasure,” he said. “The amount of time I’ve spent moisturizing, I am ready to play 17 at a moment’s notice. Ready!”

Pattinson also discussed his transition to director-driven projects like “Good Time,” “The Lost City of Z,” and “The Childhood of a Leader,” calling them “just the stuff that appeals to me…Pretty much everything I’ve done are these massive processes…
