Robert Pattinson’sTwilight days are way behind him, as evidenced by his work in such character driven work in Maps to the Stars, The Rover, and most recently The Lost City of Z. With Good Time, however, Pattinson may have taken his acting chops up another notch as a bank robber who’s determined to save his mentally disabled brother (Benny Safdie) from harm. The feature received a standing ovation during its premiere at Cannes, and it’s safe to say Pattinson may be remembered come Oscar nominations time.
The second trailer to Good Time, directed by the Safdie Brothers, has just been released, and while glimpses Pattinson’s charismatic and heart wrenching performance is sprinkled throughout the video, the biggest eye catcher are the visuals. Even in the darkest of New York nights (Queens to be exact), the diverse colors pop amidst the inevitable shadows that will descend upon these hapless siblings. Check out the trailer below and tell us what you think!
Robert Pattinson delivered the performance of his career with the A24 drama The Rover, and now he’s back with A24 with the crime thriller Good Time. Directed by Josh and Ben Safdie (Heaven Knows What), the picture centers on Constantine (Robert Pattinson) a crook who attempts to get his younger brother (Ben Safdie) out of prison after a failed bank robbery. During one maddening and violent evening, Constantine does whatever it takes to get his brother out of jail and into safety.
After carving his teeth on the Twilight films, Pattinson could have gone the A-list actor route and done his share of studio driven films. Instead, with works such as The Rover, Life, and The Lost City of Z, Pattinson has aligned himself with more auteur driven projects.
Pattinson looks to be in fine form in this film, which premieres at the Cannes Film Festival (in competition) on May 25. Check out the trailer and tell us what you think!
Co-starring Jennifer Jason Leigh, Good Time opens in theaters August 11.
A new domestic trailer for The Lost City of Z, James Gray’s (The Immigrant) highly anticipated epic headlined by Charlie Hunnam (Pacific Rim) and Robert Pattinson(The Twilight Saga), has been released. Based on David Grann’s nonfiction bestseller, the centers on British explorer Percy Fawcett’s (Hunnam) journey into the most remote areas of the Amazon. Though his attempts to search for this “lost city” is ambitious, his explorations is negatively received by the scientific community. The naysayers don’t stop Fawcett from attempting to find this lost civilization, and it’s a quest that eventually leads to his disappearance in 1925.
Pattinson co-stars as the military official who accompanies Fawcett on his trips, with Sienna Miller (Live By Night) and Tom Holland (upcoming Spider-Man: Homecoming) playing his wife and son respectively. As witnessed with the underrated The Immigrant, Gray knows how to tell a personal story amidst an arresting visual canvas, and we”re hoping The Lost City of Z is another solid effort from the filmmaker. Hunnam, whose success has come from the long running TV series Sons of Anarchy, has done his share of movies (Pacific Rim, Children of Men), but he still hasn’t broken out as an A-list star. Maybe The Lost City of Z will change those fortunes.
The Lost City of Z hits Los Angeles and New York April 14 and opens nationwide the following week. Check out the trailer below and tell us what you think!!
