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.

Johnny Depp is a ruthless and cunning Colonel alongside Robert Pattinson and Oscar-winner Mark Rylance in the historical drama “Waiting For The Barbarians”.

Based on the novel by J.M. Coetzee, the new trailer for the film sees Rylance as the unnamed Magistrate who reevaluates his loyalty to his country while assigned to a remote desert outpost with Colonel Joll (Depp). Joll arrives to help keep tabs on the so-called “barbarians” on the other side of the wall. Prone to terrorizing and torture, Joll has found an eager young officer (Pattinson) who is only happy to uphold his penchant for violence, leaving the Magistrate to question his loyalty to the empire.

Directed by Colombian filmmaker Ciro Gurrera, “Waiting For The Barbarians” premiered at the Venice Film Festival last year and will arrive on VOD on August 7.

“Doesn’t us being here now mean it never happened?” John David Washington asks at the end of the new trailer to Christopher Nolan’s latest high-concept film, Tenet. While the trailer doesn’t necessarily answer that question, it does shed some light on some of what goes down in the latest film from the director who brought us Dunkirk, The Dark Knight, and Inception. John David Washington is catching bullets. Kenneth Branagh is doing a fun accent. And Robert Pattinson is crashing a plane. Not from the air, that would be too “ludicrous,” but it’s a pretty large plane. There’s one question bigger than any plane that has yet to be answered: When is Tenet coming out? While the first trailer said Tenet would hit theaters this July, this trailer has no date listed, probably due to the global pandemic. Even time travel can’t escape the coronavirus.

In a competitive situation on the eve of the European Film Market, A24 has swooped on North American rights to one of the hot indie pics that has just dropped at the market.

In a low-seven-figure deal, the blue-chip buyer has swooped on Claire Denis’ next movie, love story/thriller The Stars at Noon, which has her High-Life collaborator Robert Pattinson and Once Upon a Time in Hollywood breakout Margaret Qualley attached.

Set in 1984 during the Nicaraguan Revolution, the film follows a mysterious English businessman and headstrong American journalist who strike up a passionate romance. They soon become embroiled in a dangerous labyrinth of lies and conspiracies and are forced to try and escape the country, with only each other to trust and rely on.

The project is based on the 1986 novel by acclaimed U.S. writer Denis Johnson. Filmmaker Denis is adapting the novel with Lea Mysius and Andrew Litvack. It sounds like prime territory for the director after movies such as White Material and Beau Travail.

Wild Bunch is launching international sales on the project at the EFM, and buyers are already hot for the package. RT Features and Paris-based Curiosa Films are producing with an eye on shooting later this year. CAA Media Finance brokered domestic, which will include a solid theatrical commitment.

Pattinson is currently making Warner Bros’ The Batman. Denis is coming off sci-fi High Life, which was also bought by A24. Denis told us around the time of that movie how much she’d love to work with Pattinson again. A24 has previously bought a handful of Pattinson movies.

In-demand Fosse/Verdon Emmy-nominee Qualley stars in the Berlin Film Festival opener My Salinger Year and is also due to star in the buzzy EFM project A Head Full of Ghosts. The work of novelist Johnson has been adapted before to the big screen, most notably with Jesus’ Son in 1999.

Qualley is repped by UTA, Management 360 and Sloane, Offer. Pattinson is repped by WME, Curtis Brown, 3 Arts and Sloane, Offer.

Robert Pattinson will compete in the lead actor category for “The Lighthouse,” Variety has learned exclusively. A24 will submit Pattinson in the lead actor category, with co-star Willem Dafoe in the supporting actor field.

“The Lighthouse,” which opens Oct. 18, has been earning praise on the festival circuit since premiering at Cannes in May, where writer-director Robert Eggers won an International Federation of Film Critics (FIPRESCI) Prize. Pattinson and Dafoe play two lighthouse keepers isolated on a small island who begin to grapple with their sanity.

If Dafoe were to be nominated, it would be his third consecutive nod after last year’s “At Eternity’s Gate” and 2017’s “The Florida Project.” He was also previously nominated for “Platoon” and “Shadow of the Vampire.”

While the film is very much a two-hander, Pattinson has more screen time and his character serves as the audience’s point of view. Though he has never been nominated for an Oscar, Pattinson has more than proven his chops since breaking through in the “Twilight” films, working with such directors as David Cronenberg, the Safdie brothers and Christopher Nolan. His choices and performances have drawn recognition, particularly for his turn in 2017’s “Good Time.” In his review for “The Lighthouse,” Variety’s Owen Gleiberman called one scene “the most ferocious acting of Pattinson’s career.”

Pattinson was honored Saturday night at the Mill Valley Film Festival in Marin County, Calif. In presenting the spotlight award, festival executive director Mark Fishkin quoted a description of the film from Eggers: “Nothing good can happen when two men are left alone in a giant phallus.” Fishkin then told Pattinson, “You’ve brought to us so much joy and this is an iconic role, so thank you.”

Pattinson took part in a Q&A and attended an after party that included guests like Olivia Wilde, “Harriet” director Kasi Lemmons and “Dolemite Is My Name” screenwriters Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski.

At the Q&A, Pattinson revealed he was a fan of Eggers’ feature film debut, “The Witch,” and reached out to him about collaborating. “I approached him about something that never got made that I’d still love to do with him, kind of a kind of a medieval thing,” Pattinson revealed. He then added that they discussed a famous vampire property. “I talked to him about ‘Nosferatu,’ and then I thought … that was a little bit close to home,” Pattinson said with a laugh, referencing his “Twilight” past.

He also admitted that everyone expected the movie to be a hard sell, not only because of the material, but because the film was shot in black-and-white, on 35mm film and in the Academy ratio. “I thought it was going to be a harder sell than it is,” Pattinson admitted, before adding that the response has been very positive, with filmgoers appreciating the dark humor.

And though the shoot had tough moments with tons of physical activity and bad weather (“You realize how amazing wool is as a fabric”) Pattinson had nothing but praise for Eggers. “He has a lot of respect for the audience. He can make things pretty strange and you have to kind of go with it. He doesn’t really make movies that spoon-feed you,” said Pattinson. “It’s always fun to work with someone like that. He’s very stubborn and he’s very clever and he makes the movie that he wants to make.”

As for working with Dafoe, Pattinson said the film was “like doing a one-act play with a genius.” He added, “I knew he was going to bring something crazy. I knew he would have so much anarchic energy. I was very intimidated but it’s always helpful when the part calls for you to be intimidated by somebody.”

The presentation will include a special Oct. 5 screening of the film, directed by Robert Eggers and also starring Willem Dafoe.

Foxx, Nelson and Morgan plan on attend the Oct. 3 opening.

James Mangold’s “Ford v Ferrari,” starring Christian Bale and Matt Damon, and Edward Norton’s adaptation of author Jonathan Lethem’s award winner “Motherless Brooklyn” will also be screened at the fest. Mangold and Norton are expected to attend.

Pattinson will also appear in Netflix’s “The King,” which stars Timothee Chalamet and Joel Edgerton and recently premiered at the Venice Film Festival.

Here is the new trailer for Robert Pattinson new movie ‘The King’

Labels: Movie News, The King, Trailer

Robert Eggers’ “The Lighthouse,” with Willem Dafoe and Robert Pattinson, won the Cannes Film Festival critics’ award for best first or second feature in Directors’ Fortnight and Critics’ Week, one of the first prizes for which “The Lighthouse” has been eligible at Cannes.

The award was announced Saturday in Cannes by the Intl. Federation of Film Critics (Fipresci), which also honored Elia Suleiman’s “It Must Be Heaven” as the best film in competition and Russian Kantemir Balagov’s “Beanpole” as best film in the sidebar Un Certain Regard.

At the same awards announcement, it was revealed that Terrence Malick’s Cannes competition entry, “Hidden Life,” won the Prize of the Ecumenical Jury.

The Fipresci honor for “The Lighthouse” marks another plaudit for Eggers, who is rapidly emerging as a major talent in many critics’ view, as well as for one of the best-reviewed of movies in any section at this year’s Cannes Film Festival. Variety called “The Lighthouse” “darkly exciting” and “made with extraordinary skill,” commenting that “the movie, building on ‘The Witch,’ proves that Robert Eggers possesses something more than impeccable genre skill. He has the ability to lock you into the fever of what’s happening onscreen.”

Produced by A24, New Regency and Brazil’s RT Features, and picked up by Focus Features for international distribution and A24 for North America, “The Lighthouse” is shot in chiaroscuro black-and-white and a 1.19:1 box ratio, with Dafoe and Pattinson playing lighthouse keepers who drive each other to the brink of madness.

“The Lighthouse” sees “two lead actors give stormy, career-best performances,” the Fipresci jury said in a written statement Saturday, describing Eggers’ second feature as “a brutal work of art, all shot in beautiful black-and-white cinematography and fueled by a soundscape that echoes like a foghorn.”

Suleiman’s “It Must Be Heaven” is a collection of drolly observational comedic tableaux, and sees its Palestinian director-star leaving his native Nazareth to seek financing for his next movie, first in Paris, then New York and Montreal. He finds the same officialdom, absurdity and underlying violence as in his native land.

Sold by Wild Bunch – and featuring its head, Vincent Maraval, as a French film producer who tells Suleiman his project isn’t Palestinian enough – “It Must Be Heaven” was generally liked. In one of the most enthusiastic reviews, Variety said that “Elia Suleiman turns his delightfully absurdist, unfailingly generous gaze beyond the physical homeland, where parallels and dissonance abound.”

The Fipresci jury agreed: “In a subtle, stylistically strong and humorous way, this film tells a story that goes beyond politics, religions, authorities and cultural differences.”

Balagov’s “Beanpole,” his second feature, took Fipresci’s Un Certain Regard award. The Russian helmer had already won the Best Director prize at the Un Certain Regard awards on Friday. One of the 10 Cannes-selected movies, along with “The Lighthouse,” scoring 100% on Rotten Tomatoes, “Beanpole” is about two women attempting to rebuild their lives in war-ravaged 1945 Leningrad. It was praised by Variety as an “exceptionally crafted, devastating postwar drama.”
