Quotes from the Rover Press Conference   1 comment


“On working on Australian films, this is for you Rob…. the Australian industry has a reputation for being among the hardest working in the world, how was your experience with it?”

Rob: “I think it was a really special crew, it was quite harsh where we were but, also just having everyone on location as well and kind of no-one to my knowledge really fell out with each other, (laughs) yes it was amazing.” 

Rob: “I was trying to get into Australian movies for a long time before I did this, I’m not sure why … I think it’s a confident and vibrant film industry.. and vital. I had a really great experience.”

From Daily Mail:

Working in 50 degree temperatures in the Australian Outback didn’t exactly make for easy filming conditions on the set of Robert Pattinson’s new film The Rover, but the 28-year-old star got through it by drinking alcohol.
The British actor’s fellow leading man in the Australian movie – Guy Pearce – has revealed that Pattinson ‘handled himself really well’ in the harsh environment, even with the booze.
‘He drank more vodka than I advised him to drink,’ said Pearce, 46.

A good-humoured Pattinson chuckled while sipping a cup of tea on stage in Sydney at a press conference talking about The Rover on Friday.

This is going to be the only thing that comes out of this now,’ said the former Twilight Saga star.
‘My “drinking problem”.’
Pearce was quick to cover his tracks, jumping in with the line: ‘There was no vodka.’
Pattinson arrived in Australia on Thursday morning to promote the film from David Michod, with the Animal Kingdom director joining him on stage with producers Liz Watts and David Linde.

Pattinson has been receiving rave reviews for his performance out of the Cannes film festival, with critics calling it a career redefining turn.
The Cosmopolis actor said he has gotten a laugh out of reading the descriptions about his character Rey, who is American and speaks with a strong Southern twang.
I’ve loved reading the reviews, saying that I’ve done a terrible Australian accent.’

Press Conference Report from The Sydney Morning Herald

There is something “incredibly serene” and “strangely mystical” about the harsh Australian desert, says Robert Pattison, whose latest film The Rover was shot in the harsh conditions of South Australia’s Flinders Rangers.

Appearing in Sydney alongside his co-star Guy Pearce, and director David Michod to promote the film’s Australian tour, Pattinson said The Rover had fulfilled a long-standing dream of his to work on an Australian movie.

I was trying to get into Australian movies for a long time before I got this [role]. It was a really special crew,” he said.

Set in an anarchical future ravaged by the collapse of the global financial system, The Rover sees Pattinson’s character Rey form an unlikely friendship with Eric, a guarded and angry drifter, played by Pearce.

The Brit hinted that the on-location shoot was a welcome respite from the unrelenting paparazzi, whose prying cameras he has struggled to escape since the blowout success of the Twilight juggernaut.

I really liked it … being able to look to the horizon and see nothing,” he said.

For Guy Pearce, it was a case of the Australian outback beckoning his return, having been well-acquainted with the desert’s severe conditions in Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert.

But Pearce said Pattison needed no guidance on how to handle himself, and jokingly added that “he probably drank a little more vodka than I’d advise.”

Despite the film’s bleak premise, heavy survivalist themes and the exacting surrounds, Pearce said the atmosphere on set remained upbeat.

“It wasn’t really a heavy shoot … David’s got a good sense of humour and we had quite a good fun time on set.”

Pic of the Day Round-Up & A Quote   Leave a comment

It’s been a while since I made a pic of the day round-up. Here are pics we’ve been posting on our Tumblr account every day. I also really wanted to add this quote to the post. It’s a quote Rob made at the Eclipse Press Junket when he was asked if he believed that people had souls. Here was his answer:

“I can’t remember who said it, but a soul and a heaven must exist because good people aren’t rewarded enough on Earth. I always liked that idea, if that makes sense”

– Robert Pattinson
