Oscar Producer Teases Surprise For Twilight Fans   2 comments

According to Academy awards producer Bruce Cohen, Twihards should prepare themselves for a surprise. Although it has not been confirmed whether Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart or Taylor Lautner will attend, he has the following words for fans:

“For all Twilight fans we have a surprise in the show on Sunday night, if you like the three movies, I have three words for you … Check out the show”

See the video HERE

From Twilight Examiner:

One of the co-hosts for the event is James Franco, who, you might recall, is an outspoken Twilight enthusiast. There’s even a connection between his post as host and his former interest in portraying a Breaking Dawn character. It should be interesting to see what they drum up for this! (Note that Bruce Cohen is the same guy who brought Franco on board for the job.

The 83rd Academy Awards are set to air Sunday, February 27, 2011.

Death and Taxes Magazine About Robert Pattinson’s New Role As Eric Parker in Cosmopolis   2 comments

Here’s a great article about why Cronenberg chose Robert Pattinson for his new movie and a great analysis on Pattinson’s character Eric Parker:

From Death and Taxes:

David Cronenberg has tapped the “Twilight” star to play Eric Packer in the adaptation of Don DeLillo’s 2003 novel.

Don DeLillo’s “Cosmopolis” is a vintage, icy satire. It might share the NYC setting and financial playground staked out by Oliver Stone in “Wall Street,” but whereas Charlie Sheen stands at his balcony and asks, “Who am I,” Eric Packer looks at his skyscraper penthouse from the street below and remembers, “I want a haircut.”

And so begins Packer’s Ulyssian odyssey through Manhattan as a 28 year old billionaire hedge fund manager, who’s made his money in tech stocks, and has an almost abstract-nihilistic approach to life and business.

Packer is, for all intents and purposes, an example of the Cartesian cogito ergo sum made flesh. The reader of “Cosmopolis” gets the impression that Packer might have sincerely tried to infuse meaning into existence, and simply discarded the notion when intellectual or financial excellence revealed no greater truths.

USA Today – Book Buzz ‘Water for Elephants’ Goes Hollywood   2 comments

PhotobucketFrom USA Today:

Rob Pattinson and Reese Witherspoon grace the jacket for the movie tie-in; “Super Diaper Baby 2” is here; and books play a numbers game.

‘Water’ world: On Tuesday, two pretty faces —Robert Pattinson‘s and Reese Witherspoon‘s — will begin gracing the jacket of Water for Elephants as the movie tie-in paperback edition hits stores. The film isn’t in theaters until April 22, but advance publicity has helped boost sales of the 2006 novel about a traveling circus. This week it’s No. 8 on USA TODAY’s Best-Selling Books list. The highest the novel has been is No. 4, in August 2007, after it was first released in paperback. Publisher Algonquin says the star-studded new jacket will have an impact: “I expect we’ll see a huge increase in sales of all available editions, including e-books and audio,” says associate publisher Ina Stern. Meanwhile, the paperback of Gruen’s 2010 novel Ape House will be released April 5.

Feature Film

STATUS: May 24

KINOLOGY

It is an April day in the year 2000 and an era is about to end. The booming times of market optimism — when the culture boiled with money and
corporations seemed more vital and influential than governments — are poised to crash. Eric Packer (Pattinson), a billionaire asset manager at age
twenty-eight, emerges from his penthouse triplex and settles into his lavishly customized white stretch limousine. Today he is a man with two
missions: to pursue a cataclysmic bet against the yen and to get a haircut across town. Stalled in traffic by a presidential motorcade, a music idol’s
funeral, and a violent political demonstration, Eric receives a string of visitors — experts on security, technology, currency, finance, and a few sexual partners — as the limo sputters toward an increasingly uncertain future. Based on the novel by Don DeLillo. (Giamatti plays the dual role of Benno
Levin/Richard Steers. / Production office opens Mid-March.)
