David Cronenberg and Robert Pattinson’s Second Film, ‘Maps To The Stars’ Making Many 2014 “most anticipated film” lists

Maps To The Stars

Does this feel like “deja vu” for all who watch Cosmopolis head to the screen in 2012? I have a master post COLLECTION of the lists made- to be continually updated- over at my blog dedicated to that film, mapstothestars-film.com.

Here’s the direct link: 2014 “Most Anticipated Film” (or similar) Lists Made by ‘Maps To The Stars’ – Our COLLECTION & links”

Best of 2012 Lists: Cosmopolis Critical Acclaim for Cosmopolis Robert Pattinson Robert Pattinson - New Horizons

All through 2012, films critics raved about Robert Pattinson’s performance. This post will leave the reader with no doubt about that. We first have a convincing short-story, in a very impressive list of adjectives collectively used to describe Rob’s achievement playing Eric Packer. Following that is the longer-story- well worth the time- of direct quotes from top critics and bloggers.

Here’s a video of Robert Pattinson and all representing the production at Cannes 2012 when they were there for Cosmopolis. They’ll soon be there again or Maps To The Stars. Both of the films were official selections in competition for the Palme d’Or. This video from The Telegraph does not have great resolution, but what’s included is great. Also, there’s a short clip from Cosmopolis at the end.

“Rob With Guns” – Rey in ‘The Rover’ and Eric Packer in ‘Cosmopolis’

Official Stills

Someone beat me to it- a pic on twitter of Robert Pattinson’s movie characters (so far!) with guns. (I did one on “Rob in Cars” for my Maps To The Stars Film Blog HERE.) Someone else found this quote I vaguely recalled from Rob. Perhaps he’ll have another gun tramping through the rainforest in The Lost City of Z?

“I want to do something where I have a gun, get to run around a little bit.

Cosmopolis & Robert Pattinson- Unique Photo on distributor Tanweer Group’s Web Site

Distribution Robert Pattinson

I’ve noticed how attractive and colorful Tanweer Films website is before, but hadn’t noticed this before- its page on Cosmopolis. I love the urban landscape in background, and a different photo of Robert Pattinson in a suit than what we’ve always seen with his costuming for Eric Packer.

VIDEO TIFF’s David Cronenberg Virtual Museum: “Behind the Scenes: Cosmopolis: A Specter is Haunting the World” – LOVE THIS!

TIFF Video Videos of Filming

MUST SEE: Love the content, love the voiceover, love “firing up” the protesters, Cosmopolis fans, you must watch this.  Text from the TIFF page for “Field Study  #5″:

Much of Cosmopolis takes place in the back of Eric Packer’s (Robert Pattinson) limo, which has been cork lined—or “Prousted”—to block out the sounds of the external world. While the limo provides a very intimate setting for Eric and his occasional companions as they make their way through the streets of New York, more than 160 extras were employed as the mob of protestors running rampant outside of the car. This video takes a closer look at the sound design of this film, and the technical challenges of balancing the chaos of a crowd with the extreme quiet inside the limo.

-> Robert Pattinson fans, watch him after “cut” at 2:17. Besides being so talented, you can see why he has so many fans & co-workers love working with him!

David Cronenberg Honored Last Night: Robert Pattinson & Viggo Mortensen Attend @AcademyNet Event

Uncategorized

[This first published at my mapstothestars-film.com film fan site/blog:] Well, this was a fun find! Wondered with Robert Pattinson being in Toronto for the filming of Anton Corbijn’s Life (in the city proper yesterday) might we hear he met up with his director for Maps To The Stars. A trifecta!!! Mortensen and Pattinson with him.
