This November The Twilight Saga comes to an end with Breaking Dawn – Part 2. Part 1 saw Bella getting vampiric and having a child, both of which promise plenty of drama in the final instalment. Now the first teaser trailer for the movie has appeared, which suggests that if she doesn’t want to have to start snacking on human blood, Bella’s going to have to get adept at killing Bambi! The film hits cinemas on November 16th.
There were a lot of raised eyebrowd when David Cronenberg cast Robert Pattinson in Cosmopolis, largely because it seemed such a jump from the world of Twilight. However as this trailer shows, the movie will show a different side to Pattinson and it’s likely to be intense! The film, based on Don DeLillo’s book, sees R-Patz as young billionaire Eric Packer, who starts out just wanting to get a haircut, but as the day progresses and he travel around New York, he must deal with the fallout from the decisions he’s made in his life. Cosmopolis should be out later this year.
It’s become almost de rigueur to slag off the Twilight movies, with the usual tack being to criticise the films for not fitting into the horror/action/thriller tropes that fanboys feel movies about vampires ought to fulfil. Behind that is a rather unpleasant sense that the anger at the franchise stems from fury that someone has dared make a fantasy movie that isn’t designed for the geeks who like to should loudly on the internet. Perhaps worst of all is that these angry young men don’t even seem to appreciate that 90% of the major movies are made for them, so the vitriol they pour at Twilight, simply because it’s popular but not for them, is actually quite ridiculous.

On March 9th Robert Pattinson is setting out to work his way up Parisian society via the beds of wealthy and well-connected women! Well, his character in Bel Ami is anyway, and now he trying to seduce us to watch the movie via a brand new quad poster that’s just been released.
If you’re a big R-Patz fan, feel free to photoshop your own head on top of Christina Ricci, Uma Thurman and Kristin Scott Thomas.
Here’s the synopsis: ‘Based on the novel by Guy de Maupassant, BEL AMI chronicles the rise of penniless ex-soldier Georges Duroy (Robert Pattinson, THE TWILIGHT SAGA, REMEMBER ME) through the echelons of the 1890s Parisian elite and is a tale of ambition, power and seduction. Also starring Uma Thurman, Kristin Scott Thomas, Christina Ricci and Colm Meaney. BEL AMI is a timeless epic with a modern twist. A Dangerous Liaisons for a new generation.’
New posters have popped up online for some of next year’s movie, so take a look above and below for new shots from 21 Jump Street, Mirror Mirror and Cosmopolis.
Although 21 Jump Street is loosely based on the 1980s Johnny Depp TV series of the same name, it’s a far more comic take on concept. It sees Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum as a pair of underachieving cops who are sent back to a local high school to blend in and bring down a drug ring. The poster above is fairly generic, but it ain’t bad. The film’s out March 16th. (Image via Moviefone)
The trailer for Mirror Mirror was pretty dreadful, but these two posters aren’t bad. Directed by Tarsem, the film is a comic take on the Snow White legend starring Lily Collins, Julia Roberts, Armie Hammer and Nathan Lane. It’s due to his cinemas on March 16th.
Finally, this rather brooding poster for Cosmopolis has appeared over at CosmopolisFilm.com. David Cronenberg’s take on Don De Lillo’s novel stars Robert Pattinson as young billionaire Eric Packer (Pattinson) who starts out just wanting to get a haircut, but as the day progresses, he must deal with the fallout from the decisions he’s made in his life. The film’s out in 2012.

It’s all going down at the Vue Westfield Stratford tonight, where the premiere of Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 1 is taking place! Those lovely folk over at Lovefilm are streaming it live, and we’ve got an embed of their feed which you can watch above from 5.30pm! So if you want watch R-Patz and Taylor Lautner walk the red carpet, click above.
Some new images have popped up online from the upcoming Robert Pattinson movie, Cosmopolis, including the gun-toting one above, which shows us R-Patz in a different (and less soppy) way than we’ve seen before. Based on Don DeLillo’s novel, Young billionaire Eric Packer (Pattinson) starts out just wanting to get a haircut, but as the day progresses, he must deal with the fallout from the decisions he’s made in his life.
David Cronenberg is in the director’s chair, which should ensure this is well worth a watch. The cast also includes Sarah Gadon (who’s in the image at the bottom of this post), Juliette Binoche, Paul Giamatti, Samantha Morton and Mathieu Almaric. There’s no release date set as yet.

I have a new theory. If you want to become really famous, you need to make a period movie where you’re a bit gay for a while but then decide that you’re actually straight, and if you’re playing some kind of artist, all the better. It’s worked for Hugh Grant with Maurice, Leonardo DiCaprio with Total Eclipse and now Robert Pattinson with Little Ashes. I’m not quite sure how the mechanism works exactly, especially as both Little Ashes and Total Eclipse were made before but released after the star’s breakout hit, but there definitely seems to be something going on.
