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.

David Cronenberg has been doing interviews promoting Maps To The Stars (<-link is to my film blog/fan site, also @MTTSFilm_blog on twitter) which is currently in US theaters. In this interview with Marlow Stern at The Daily Beast, he also speaks of Cosmopolis and voiced praise again for actor Robert Pattinson. I brought in those portions, and his talk about his experience with Hollywood.

“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.
