Will Fetters (left) and Remember Me Director Allen Coulter
NOTE: This interview contains story details that will spoil the ending of Remember Me. If you have not seen it yet, not only do I urge you to head to the theater, but you also may want to skip reading this interview until you have.
Anyone that read my review of Remember Me already knows I enjoyed it, and was one of the select few. In fact, I have strong opinions of the film, not from the perspective of how great the acting is or whether director Allen Coulter turned in a tour de force bit of filmmaking navigation, but merely at the idea behind the film and its intentions. However, it’s intentions, it seems, have been largely lost on the critical community.
Here are some old/new pics of Robert Pattinson with a fan.

Who will YOU choose: Edward or Jacob?
In anticipation of the Twilight Saga: New Moon DVD release on March 20, Wal-Mart is setting up separate ‘vampire’ and ‘wolf’ themed shops – so now you’re really going to have to choose who you love the most: vamp Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson) or were-boy Jacob Black (Taylor Lautner). What to do, what to do??
The stores will carry clothing, jewelry, and Twilight paraphernalia galore, as well as the Wal-mart exclusive Ultimate Fan Edition New Moon DVD.
In addition, the store will be hosting midnight release parties across the country, and word on the street is that the first 100 people in line get a very special prize. Maybe the prize will be Edward Cullen himself? We hear a vampire’s best hour is midnight, after all…
Do you think WalMart is taking the Twilight obsession to the extreme? Which store will YOU be shopping in?
Parade.com’s Jeanne Wolf interviewed Kristen Stewart and asked her about Rob’s performance in ‘Remember Me’. This is what Kristen had to say about Rob:
“I think he’s bold and different. It wasn’t an easy character to play. I thought he was really good in it.”

One of the things Twilight fans most look forward to is that moment when the reality that The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn is coming to fruition sets in.
Until then, we speculate about the varying potentialities for the film: two films versus one; 3-D or not 3-D; Portland or Vancouver; who will direct this movie (or these movies)?
Well, Entertainment Weekly has a very interesting new bit of insight as to the last bit at least and reports that a decision as to which filming location will be chosen is still in the works.
According to them, at least three, very high profile directors have been vetted for the post of directing the fourth portion of the Saga.
“Sources tell EW that the studio has reached out to at least three top-notch directors, including Sofia Coppola (Lost in Translation), Gus Van Sant (Milk), and Bill Condon (Dreamgirls) to gauge their interest in what is likely to be two movies.”
They also reported that Van Sant’s representatives confirmed him as having been approached for the picture.
Twilight Lexicon makes a really good point about this issue, saying “Summit will tell us details about Breaking Dawn after the Eclipse major marketing wave is over” because “like most companies, they like to focus their marketing and newscycle on one major product at a time.”
A lot of folks speculated that the news would come after a successful showing for New Moon, but it makes sense that announcement of this sort of magnitude would be held off until The Twilight Saga: Eclipse has had its day (or weeks, months) in the theater.
