  1. Edward Cullen meh.

  2. Pattinson accent is terrible

  3. Pattinson is boring

  4. I don’t love or hate Robert Pattinson, I really am completely indifferent about him in terms of what I am going to say next. I really appreciate the fact that after having a mega hit with Twilight he is trying to branch out and show that he can actually act. I applaud him for working with geniuses like a David Cronenberg and trying to make challenging films. All great and wonderful.

    That being said, as A.O. Scott said a few years ago, he really is a terrible actor. Maybe he just isn’t a leading man and would be better suited in a supporting role. I don’t know. As a poster above said, he just kinda is boring.

  5. Guest, Claire, Anna…same person? Each post within a minute of each other, basically saying the same thing with the same picture.

  6. Boy, I see a lot of jealous krisbians on here today! Rob left a multibillion dollar series , made 3 movies under renowned directors and ALL 3 HAVE GONE TO CANNES ! Each character he played was so different from the other , showing his incredible range and today’s trailer of The Rover displayed him as a naive, southern American criminal and he nailed it ! I’d say the man had a plan to work with top-notch directors, is working on that mission, and with his talent and hard work he is proving himself to be a very credible actor !

  7. Jon, if you’re still around, can you expand on why you think that and how you’re getting that from a two minute trailer? I’d be interested to know, genuinely. I happen to think he looks fantastic here. He keeps getting better.

    Looks good but I can’t understand what Pattinson is saying? What accent is that? Guy looks great, looking forward to it!

  9. Well what a shocker, bitter Kristen Stewart fans spewing their hate ..again.
    He dumped her because she was a lying cheat. Don’t take it so personally..he didn’t dump you LOL

    More importantly this film is going to be stunning David Michod is a name we’re going to hear for many years. He’s a real talent so is Guy Pearce. As for Rob Pattinson, he’s about to shock everybody. Michod chose him, hand picked him after two gruelling auditions. That is enough to know. His accent is flawless. He can really do accents New York is Cosmopolis and now an excellent Southern accent.
    His career is on fire – and at least 4 other movies next year, all with fantastic directors and costars. Rob is intelligent and has begun making his mark. Love that he is choosing such interesting films.

    Thanks for embedding.

    I’m going to wait and see even though it looks somewhat fortunate enough to be Guy Pierce-starring film — hopefully his character would be the one driving the whole piece, with or without anyone else’s assistance . . . .

    “This looks so good”

    Beautiful, right? I love the way Pattinson’s career is going. He deserves all the success. He’s doing a film with Werner Herzog for Pete’s sake.

    Pattinson’s accent is Texan and it’s note-perfect.

  13. Bryce, whether or not Pattison really is, or will become, a good actor, I love the choices he’s making these days. Herzog, Cornenberg, Michod…who’s next?

  14. Profile photo of Ryan Adams

    I love the choices he’s making these days. Herzog, Cronenberg, Michod…

    He’s not cashing in on junk, he’s aiming high, and let’s not forget: Herzog, Cronenberg, Michod chose Pattinson.

    He looks fantastic here. What trailer are the naysayers seeing?

  15. Igor Sousa

    Guy Peace is such an overachiever and underestimated actor

  16. Natasha

    I too am impressed with the choices Pattinson is making. Even if they turn out like Little Ashes…..he’s stretching himself…..and I think his presence is compelling….he’s really getting there…working with really impressive people….learning….growing..and already talented.

  17. @Igor Totally agree with you! Saw Lawless for the first time. He was sensational(as Hardy was).

  18. Bryce Forestieri

    Uhh…so I totally did not despise the JERSEY BOYS trailer…there’s some judicious reassurance I dug…whatever.

  19. Animal Kingdom was my favourite film the year it was released, along with Black Swan and How to Train Your Dragon (and we’re talking the year it was TSN, TKS, TS3 and Inception, so that’s how much I love that piece of art).
    I had no idea that the same director was making a new film. Thanks for excited me for another film!

  20. Guy Pearce is one of the most underrated and under appreciated actors working today. He is always good.
