It’s been a while since we’ve done a poll so here’s one for you guys this morning. What’s your favorite Robert Pattinson movie so far this year? Cosmopolis or Bel Ami? We know that not everyone has been able to see these two movies yet as they haven’t been released worldwide but we’d still like to get your opinion!
RPattz may have gone off the radar lately, but he’s back with a vengeance in two of this year’s most talked about movies; check him trying something different out in the hugely hyped Cosmopolis or stick to what you know with his oh-so-sexy Edward Cullen in the FINAL instalment to the Twilightsaga. We definitely wouldn’t mind letting Rob suck on our necks…
The final buzzer has sounded, the brawl for it all is over, and Robert Pattinson is the last man standing: ”Cosmopolis” has won MTV Movie Brawl 2012.
His indie drama made for one hell of a Cinderella story in the vote-driven tournament to pick the must-see movie of the year. Entering the bracket as a #4 seed (following an impressive showing in the play-in round),”Cosmopolis” appeared to be facing an unavoidable Elite Eight ouster. What were the chances Pattinson’s cerebral film about a young finance wiz taking a day-long limo ride though New York City would beat “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2″? Apparently pretty good. Fans banded together, choosing to support RPattz’s post-vampire career rather than the franchise that made him a star. “Breaking Dawn” was sent packing.
And so, after easily fighting off “The Dark Knight Rises,”"Cosmopolis” came to face “The Hunger Games,” a brand-new franchise that had waltzed through the tournament and seemed to be the odds-on favorite to win the whole tourney. But it was not to be. After more than 3 million votes and a slew of lead changes, Pattinson’s film beat back Jennifer Lawrence’s series to become the undisputed champion of the Movie Brawl.
Hours before voting closed Monday afternoon (January 23), with “Cosmopolis” staking out an insurmountable lead and the MTV Movies team at the Sundance Film Festival, we broke the news to Pattinson’s co-star, Paul Giamatti, that their film had won the tournament.
“Holy cow, that’s astounding!” he said. “The fact of that is amazing. … That’s a really cool thing that it brings that visibility to that movie.”
It’s been a whirlwind few weeks in the tournament, so we’d like to thank all the fans who voted. The Brawl broke bigger than we could have ever hoped. Well over 5 million votes were cast. The competition spread wildly over Twitter and Facebook. Our comments sections caught fire as fans debated, argued and rallied. In the end, though, only one film could stand as the undisputed champion of the MTV Movie Brawl. Pattinson, Giamatti, director David Cronenberg and everyone connected to “Cosmopolis” — we salute you!
So, here we are. It’s perhaps the most highly anticipated and deeply dreaded duel not just of the Hogsmeade division, but of the entire Harry Potter World Cup as it stands: Cedric Diggory versus Narcissa Malfoy. Let’s just take a deep breath and dive straight into it, shall we?
Voting for all second round match-ups will close on Friday, July 1 at 12:01 AM EST, so make sure to start voting now.
(3) Cedric Diggory vs. (11) Narcissa Malfoy
What happened to Luna Lovegood? Whether she was defeated by pro-Cedric voters putting their support behind Narcissa or on Narcissa’s own merit is still a question that’s very much up in the air. The conspiracy, as it were, remains unsolved. But there’s little time left to mourn Luna’s loss. With voting ending in less than 36 hours, the duel between the late Hufflepuff hero and the Malfoy matriarch is bound to be intense. Will Narcissa’s potentially plentiful fan base come out and decimate Cedric? Or will a landslide victory for the deceased Diggory answer the lingering mystery of Luna’s defeat once and for all? It’s up to you, voters — personally speaking, I am very curious to see how this duel plays out.
