Robert Pattinson, Lily Collins and Ewan McGregor will co-host Go Campaign’s 15th anniversary virtual Go Gala on Oct. 23. The Go Campaign is a non-profit focused on helping vulnerable children around the world by way of awareness and funding.

As global ambassadors for the nonprofit, Pattinson, Collins and McGregor co-hosted the virtual event last year.

The event will also include musical performances as well as appearances from Kaitlin Olson and Glenn Howerton, among surprise celebrity guests.

All of the funds raised from Go Gala will continue to support the Go Campaign’s effort for global COVID-19 relief and efforts to achieve racial justice for youth in the U.S.

Pattinson spoke about the importance of funding to support the non-profit. “Go Campaign has a proven track record of making real, meaningful change in communities around the world,” the actor said in a statement. “The funds raised at the Go Gala bring opportunities and resources to some of the most vulnerable children that may otherwise be left behind. Every dollar donated to Go Campaign is a dollar invested wisely in the future generation.”

McGregor added, “As part of the Go Campaign family, I’ve watched the organization grow and expand since the very beginning. I’ve seen first-hand the lives that have been radically changed because of Go… it’s truly amazing.”

Earlier this year, Go Campaign provided life-saving assistance to children and families by supplying PPE, oximeters, food, daily health checks, homeschooling for children and access to vaccinations.

Robert Pattinson offered a teaser for what fans can expect from Matt Reeves’ “The Batman” at this year’s DC FanDome during the red carpet for the Academy Museum’s premiere party. Pattinson hinted that the footage that will be shown will give audiences a new look at his Bruce Wayne and Zoë Kravitz’s Catwoman.

“Me and Zoë [Kravitz] did some stuff. It’s a fun little thing,” Pattinson told Variety’s Angelique Jackson. “There are lots of little surprises for it.”

The actor also confirmed that he has watched some portions of his DC film during the interview.

“I’ve seen some of the movie now and it’s kind of really cool,” Pattinson said. “It’s really cool.”

Pattinson, a newly-added member of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, also offered his own excitement for the organization’s new museum. Located on the LACMA campus in Los Angeles, the 300,000-square-foot museum offers exhibition galleries showcasing various memorabilia from film history, and an impressive theater that will host screenings.

“I really want to see the theater,” Pattinson said. “Being really geeky about it, the technical specs of the theater sound quite insane.”

The actor also specified that he was particularly excited about the theater’s upcoming program of features directed by Hayao Miyazaki, which will begin on Oct. 5.

When asked which piece of memorabilia from his own filmography he’d submit to the museum, Pattinson laughed. “Oh god, I want to keep most [of them], so I can sell them when I’m broke.”

The Academy Museum of Motion Pictures will open to the public on Thursday.

“The Batman” is scheduled to release on March 4, 2022. The film stars Pattinson and Kravitz, along with Paul Dano, Jeffrey Wright, John Turturro, Peter Sarsgaard, Barry Keoghan, Jayme Lawson, Andy Serkis and Colin Farrell. The plot has been kept tightly under wraps.

“The Batman” will no longer hit theaters in 2021. In another major release calendar overhaul, Warner Bros. has delayed the comic book adventure and a number of other movies, including “The Flash” and “Shazam 2.”

“The Batman” — starring Robert Pattinson as the Caped Crusader — had been scheduled for Oct. 1, 2021. It’s now set to open on March 4, 2022. As reported earlier on Monday, Denis Villeneuve’s sci-fi epic “Dune” is no longer premiering on Dec. 18 and will instead move to the Oct. 1, 2021 date previously held by “The Batman.”

Other significant shifts include the Lana Wachowski-directed “Matrix 4” bowing several months earlier than expected. The upcoming sci-fi thriller — which sees the return of Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss — had been set to open on April 1, 2022 and is now debuting on Dec. 22, 2021.

The studio also plans to release two yet-to-be-announced films on June 3, 2022 and Aug. 5, 2022. In turn, “The Flash” starring Ezra Miller vacated its June 3, 2022 slot and moved to Nov. 4, 2022. Meanwhile, “Shazam 2” has been pushed from its Nov. 4, 2022 date and will instead open on June 2, 2023.

Elsewhere, superhero adventure “Black Adam” (previously set for Dec. 22, 2021) and video game adaptation “Minecraft” (originally slated for March 3, 2022) have been taken off the release calendar entirely.

Other than “Dune,” Warner Bros. says the latest release date shuffle is because of production delays. After mandated shutdowns in March due to the pandemic, several Hollywood movies have been given the greenlight to start shooting after. But there have been numerous hiccups in the process. For one, “The Batman” had to suspend filming in the United Kingdom days after it went back into production because Pattinson tested positive for coronavirus. He was cleared to go back to work at the end of September. The upcoming “Matrix” sequel, on the other hand, was completed earlier than expected.

Currently, “Wonder Woman 1984” is still set to release on Dec. 25, 2020. Along with Pixar’s “Soul,” the Gal Gadot-led superhero sequel is one of the only notable movies that hasn’t entirely given up on 2020.

For movie theater owners, the lack of new product to entice audiences is devastating. Nearly 70% of U.S. cinemas have resumed operations since March, excluding venues in New York and Los Angeles. But with lower-than-expected ticket sales, many locations are facing the possibility of having to close down again. Already, Cineworld — the company that owns movie theater chain Regal — announced plans to shutter theaters in the U.S. and U.K.

Robert Pattinson has tested positive for coronavirus, prompting “The Batman” to suspend filming in the United Kingdom days after it went back into production, according to a source familiar with the situation.

Warner Bros. confirmed earlier on Thursday that production was being halted after a crew member tested positive but did not confirm the person’s identity. Vanity Fair first reported that Pattinson was the one who had coronavirus.

“A member of ‘The Batman’ production has tested positive for COVID-19 and is isolating in accordance with established protocols,” a Warner Bros. spokesperson said in a statement. “Filming is temporarily paused.”

The studio declined to comment about whether or not Pattinson had contracted the virus; a representative for the actor did not immediately respond to request for comment.

Depending on the amount of time that Pattinson has to self-isolate and recover, suspending production could be a costly proposition. “The Batman,” starring Pattinson as the Caped Crusader, was about seven weeks into filming when they had to turn off cameras in March due to the pandemic. The gritty comic book adventure has approximately three months of material left to shoot and hopes to be done filming by the end of the year.

Numerous productions were put on pause when the virus began to intensify last spring, and very few blockbusters have resumed filming amid the global health crisis. “Jurassic World: Dominion” was the first major movie to restart and has been back to work at Pinewood Studios in the U.K. since July. Universal Pictures, the studio releasing the latest “Jurassic” sequel, has taken expensive and extensive measures to ensure the set will remain coronavirus-free. Those safety procedures involve everything from routine temperature checks to renting out a hotel for the cast and crew for 20 weeks.

Since production for “The Batman” was put on hold, Warner Bros. pushed back its theatrical release and now plans to unveil the movie on the big screen on Oct. 1, 2021.

Matt Reeves directed “The Batman,” which also stars Zoë Kravitz as Catwoman, Paul Dano as the Riddler and Jeffrey Wright as Commissioner Gordon. John Turturro, Peter Sarsgaard, Jayme Lawson, Andy Serkis and Colin Farrell round out the cast.

Reeves, in a recent panel during DC FanDome, revealed that “The Batman” takes place during “Year Two” of the Dark Knight’s emergence — before his enemies have become full-fledged supervillains.

The Official Trailer for Robert Pattinson new movie The Batman came out yesterday.

Labels: The Batman, Trailer

No surprise here as many Hollywood productions already are underway in the UK, i.e. Sony’s Cinderella and Universal’s Jurassic World: Dominion (both which we first told you about), but Matt Reeves’ The Batman will return to filming in the UK next month at Warner Bros. Studios Leavesden.

Filming stopped in March due to the coronavirus pandemic. Reportedly, set construction began last month. The pic’s panel will be part of Warner Bros.’ DC Fandome on Saturday.

DC FanDome Unveils Schedule, Sets Panels For ‘Wonder Woman 1984’, ‘The Suicide Squad’, ‘The Batman’, ‘Black Adam’, ‘Lucifer’, ‘The Flash’, And More &#8211

Unlike Canada, where incoming U.S. production crews have to quarantine for 14 days before working, that is not the case in the UK as film productions are deemed essential workers.

Warners already has resumed shooting the Village Roadshow co-production The Matrix 4 in Berlin.

Reeves told me soon after the pandemic shutdown that a quarter of The Batman was in the can, but he wasn’t planning on editing anything at that point. He was going to use his down-time reconsidering “the tone of things. It happens any time you shoot anything. The unexpected — happy accidents and things you didn’t quite expect: That is the lightning in a bottle for something that is alive. I would say that the changes really have to do with ‘Oh, seeing the tone of this’ with these scenes we haven’t done which connect to that part of the storyline. It feels like there might be an opportunity to explore some of that unexpected tone that we found. With these movies, you never have enough prep time, because they’re so complex and so enormous in so many ways. It also gives me a moment to think about the larger sequences that have yet to come up and how I want to realize those.”

Due to COVID-19, the release date for The Batman was pushed from June 2021 to October 1, 2021. The reboot stars Pattinson in the title role, Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman, Colin Farrell as the Penguin, Paul Dano as the Riddler, Andy Serkis as Alfred Pennyworth, Jeffrey Wright as James Gordon and John Turturro as Carmine Falcone.

Variety first had the news about The Batman going back to production. Warner Bros. didn’t provide comment when reached by Deadline.

Christopher Nolan may well be the most secretive filmmaker of all time, and it seems it’s futile to try to keep secrets from a master of secrecy.

In a new Irish Times story on Nolan’s upcoming film Tenet, star Robert Pattinson recalled his attempt to fool the director so he could sneak away from the set to audition for Matt Reeves’ The Batman. Apparently, the ruse failed miserably.

“It’s funny because Chris is so secretive about everything to do with his movies,” Pattinson said. “And then I had to be really secretive about Batman stuff. So I had to lie to Chris about having to go for a screen test — I said I had a family emergency. And as soon as I said ‘it’s a family emergency’ he said: ‘You’re doing the Batman audition, aren’t you?’”

Nolan, of course, famously put his own spin on Batman with the Dark Knight trilogy several years ago. Pattinson, meanwhile, landed the part, and credits Tenet with helping him get in shape for the role of the Caped Crusader.

“When I’m running on screen I’m generally paired with John David [Washington] who is an ex-NFL player so it was the most unfair thing in the world,” Pattinson told the Irish Times. “The maximum workout I do most of the time is a casual stroll. John David can run all day long. It was good that I ended up being pretty fit. But definitely, at the beginning, there were days I just could not walk afterwards.”

Tenet stars Pattinson and Washington as… well, we’re not really sure, as they attempt to… well, we don’t really know that either. (Remember what we said about Nolan’s secrecy?) What we do know is that Tenet is currently slated for an international rollout starting on Aug. 26, after having its release date pushed back multiple times due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The film will open in select U.S. theaters on Sept. 3.

The Batman, meanwhile, halted filming in March due to the pandemic, and is currently set to be released Oct. 1, 2021.
