Toronto Sun: 'Remember Me’ alive with emotion   3 comments

There is an elephant in the room, metaphorically. He is a most handsome, most famous, most perplexing elephant. His name is Robert Pattinson, a superstar among Twi-hards who follow his every breathless, bloodless moment in the Twilight series.

But “the room” is an American indie film called Remember Me, beautifully crafted with an air of thoughtful melancholy by director Allen Coulter. This is the story of a New York university student estranged from his wealthy father, in trouble with cops, and intrigued by the daughter of one detective who has already smashed his face in during an alley fight. The film just debuted on DVD following its modest theatrical run, timed to coincide with Friday’s release of The Twilight Saga: Eclipse.

In Remember Me, Pattinson gets to play a real human being in a romantic drama populated by other functioning humans. They are flawed, complex, interesting people played by Pierce Brosnan, Chris Cooper, Lena Olin, wonderful child actress Ruby Jerins and Australian discovery Emile de Ravin as the object of Pattinson’s burning desire. No one drinks blood, although this saga is rife with tragedy.

Coulter, a New Yorker, is on the phone explaining how Pattinson, already cast in the first Twilight, was eager to find an antidote — something radically different — even before its release. Executives at Summit Entertainment, producers of Twilight, were looking to help out.

'Remember Me' Director Allen Coulter chats about the Paparazzi and Rob   Leave a comment

Twilight is part of this movie even if you didn’t intend it, in the way it brings attention to the movie and just the fact that Summit is releasing it. How has that worked for you?
When we cast him Twilight wasn’t out, and I didn’t know who he was. That was an advantage, because I cast him just because I liked him. We hope people will go to this movie who might not have pursued it otherwise. If he wasn’t this phenom, you wouldn’t automatically assume that tens of thousands of teenage girls would show up the first day. We hope that is the case. But this is a movie I made for adults.

When did you realize you had the biggest star in the world in your movie?
Certainly the first day, when we had the thousands of girls standing outside from dawn until dusk. We realized what we were in for. It was not easy, believe me.

We understand there was one day where you snapped at the paparazzi?
We found ourselves in a situation with the movie that we never expected to be in. No one had an idea that basically we had unleashed Elvis. It was tough from the very beginning. All of us were a little gobsmacked by this. We just struggled the best we could. That was just a day that I felt the sense of entitlement the paparazzi had, that they had the right to demand certain kinds of shots. We were just trying to make the day, the sun was falling, the last shot that we did, that was it. They were angry they couldn’t get a shot of him. They felt it was their right, that we should accommodate them. I lost it, and they deserved it. They deserve worse. That was the one time I couldn’t hold back.

What inspired you to cast Rob to begin with?
We needed someone who could embody a certain kind of angst that one feels at 21, and the complications and complex relationships that grow from the confusions of being 21. And Rob seemed in our initial meeting to understand that and grasp that, but have enough distance on it to be able to act that.

Interview in The Boston Herald With Robert Pattinson and Allen Coulter   1 comment

Before Edward Cullen and “Twilight” and the global heartthrob status that followed, there was Robert Pattinson, young actor making his way in the business.

“I thought he was a nice, scruffy young guy from England,” said “Remember Me” director Allen Coulter. He had lunch with Pattinson a year before shooting began.

“Twilight” hadn’t yet opened, and Coulter ultimately cast Pattinson as Tyler Hawkins, an anguished college student estranged from his father who falls in love with the daughter of a cop.

“I thought, ‘What the hell, let’s take a chance on the guy.’ Then suddenly he was a phenomenon.”

When “Remember Me” was filming last year on location in Manhattan, Queens and Brooklyn, security was a must because of paparazzi and fans.

“The actors are trying to do an intimate scene, with a thousand girls vibrating on the hill,” Coulter said.

Pattinson agreed: “The first two weeks were kind of crazy because I was all around (New York University) and Washington Square Park, where there would be tons of people around anyway. But after that you just get used to it. You just block certain things out.”

“I barely like anything and so it’s kind of easy to pick your jobs. I was reading a ton of scripts and what shocked me was it just didn’t fall into any (category). It didn’t seem very formulaic and I’d just read tons and tons of formulaic scripts. It was just such a relief to find that.”

Also, he added, “there was something about Tyler – I don’t know – the way he reacted to things. I hadn’t really seen another character like it in a hundred scripts.”

“Twilight: Eclipse” arrives this summer and Pattinson is set to film the fourth and final chapter soon after.

“Remember Me” opens Friday.

Robert Pattinson, 'Remember Me' Co-Stars Answer Fans in Exclusive Video Interviews   Leave a comment

We’ve already posted the Rob one but here it is again with the others. From Moviefone

There’s no mistaking Tyler Hawkins for Edward Cullen.

Tyler — the young romantic ‘Twilight’ heartthrob Robert Pattinson portrays in the new drama ‘Remember Me’ — is still brooding, but more in a Holden Caulfield, disenfranchised upper-crest New Yorker sort of way (rather than, you know, troubled by the anxieties of blood-lust and immortality).

Pattinson and co-stars Pierce Brosnan,Emilie de Ravin and Chris Cooper, plus director Allen Coulter and screenwriter Will Fetters, hit New York recently to talk about the Manhattan-set drama. And since, well, we had a feeling the masses of R.Patz fans might be just a little bit enthused to have their existence officially acknowledged by the actor, we opened up the floor for fan-submitted questions.

The gracious Pattinson played along, answering questions about whether or not he’d ever consider playing James Bond (“I don’t know if I’d be capable of it, I think you need to be pretty fit for that”), the awkwardness of love scenes, his acting inspirations (“Joaquin Phoenix, Ryan Gosling“) and what he could never give up (“Beer”).

Video: ComingSoon.Net Interviews Allen Coulter the Director of Remember Me   Leave a comment

Allen Coulter was interviewed by ComingSoon.Net and speaks about Rob a lot in this interview. had a chance to sit down with Coulter to talk about his second movie. Unfortunately, there’s one aspect of the movie we really wanted to discuss with him, but even knowing about it before seeing the movie really takes away from its impact. Even so, here is what we ended up talking about with the director in our exclusive video interview:

* How he ended up with the script and why he decided to make it his second film
* The fact that the movie’s based on an original screenplay rather than adapted from a book
* How hard was it to convince financiers and a studio to back the film
* Getting Robert Pattinson on board and how that helped with financing
* Whether or not he considered casting New York actors for the roles
* How he was surprised to learn Emilie de Ravin was Australian
* How he wanted to approach the movie compared to “Hollywoodland”
* Talking about creating some of the settings for the story
* He talks about his next project, directing an episode of HBO’s “Boardwalk Empire”
