The Film: After wowing audiences with Animal Kingdom, Aussie director David Michôd returns with a violent Outback thriller set in the near future, in which Guy Pearce hunts down the criminals who stole his last possessions, aided by the injured gang member they left behind (Robert Pattinson, continuing his mission to move on from Edward Cullen).

If It Was Based On Something: If Young Ones has a Mad Max vibe, this one trumps it by being Australian.

23 Maps To The Stars

The Film: After a long period flirting with respectability, David Cronenberg seems to be back in touch with his inner weirdo, judging by his latest film – a satire about celebrity culture featuring drug-addicted child stars, ghostly visions and psychotherapy. Cosmopolis stars Robert Pattinson and Sarah Gadon are joined by Cronenberg newbies John Cusack, Julianne Moore and Mia Wasikowska.

If It Was Based On Something: Don’t be confused that screenwriter Bruce Wagner wrote a book, Dead Stars, with the same story – he wrote the screenplay first.

GQ:

PopSugar:

The new Dior ad starring Robert Pattinson is here, and it’s giving us everything we’ve been hoping for and more. (…) The ad definitely proves Robert has everything it takes to be the perfect specimen of a modern man.

E! Online:

Dior just released the video campaign for Dior Homme this season, starring the Twilight actor, and the black-and-white cinematic beauty is absolutely breathtaking. (…) He’s surely never looked better than in this commercial— his smoldering glares in his perfectly-tailored coats on rooftops are enough to stop someone dead in their tracks.

Herald Sun Australia:

HE’S often a celebrity who tends to slip under our radar, but Robert Pattinson’s steamy new commercial for Dior Homme proves he is back on our hot list.

The Twilight star is the face of the French fashion brand’s fragrance and the uncensored director’s cut has finally been released after months of teaser pics.

BellaSugar AU:

This is the first foray into beauty for Robert, who joins an illustrious list of celebrities who have been the faces of Dior.

MTV Style:

The LOOONG-awaited Robert Pattinson x Dior Homme fragrance ad video has finally arrived in full and IT. IS. STEAMY!

(…) *LIGHT BULB* It seems as if Dior has pinned Pattinson as a modern-day James Dean à la 1955’s Rebel Without A Cause: living fast, loving hard, doing crazy things like jumping into a pool while wearing fine-threaded DRESS PANTS, for goodness’ sake. Throughout the video, all the stills we’ve seen (and studied and gawked at) this summer, come together to tell a tale of two reckless lovers, generally being mischievous and looking super HAWT while doing so.

Huffington Post:

It’s finally here… and it was worth the wait. (…) As confessed non-”Twilight” fans (vampires are not this author’s jam), we’d forgotten just how drop-dead sexy Pattinson is. This black and white video, complete with a Led Zeppelin soundtrack and plenty of romping on the dance floor/bed/bathtub, is working wonders to remind us.

Hollywire:

A couple months ago, Robert Pattinson was announced as the new face of Dior Homme and after countless teases, the video is finally here. And it’s one glorious minute of hotness.

USA Today:

Robert Pattinson’s campaign video for Dior Homme is out … and it is hot.

The Vine Australia:

This is so much better than that pretentious Brad Pitt Chanel advertisement.

Is R-Patz hotter as a perfume spruiker than a 104 year old vampire? Yes.

Has he just made millions of men around feel inadequate? Yes he has.

US Weekly Magazine:

The anticipation is over! The long-awaited Dior Homme ad campaign featuring Robert Pattinson has premiered, with a special uncensored director’s cut. (…) The black and white commercial shows a confident and charming Pattinson in a variety of scenes.

Closer:

f you think Robert Pattinson is one of the sexiest people in the world, then this is for you. If you don’t, then watch it anyway – it may just change your mind…Directed by Romain Gavras, the ad features music by Led Zeppelin, some pretty sharp suits and a helluva lotta man crush material for Rob fans everywhere.

Jossbox:

Maybe it’s because we’re Harry Potter fans who eschewed Twilight mania entirely, but we never quite got bitten by the Rob Pattinson bug – to us, he’s always been poor, sweet Cedric Diggory who got killed by Voldemort in Book / Movie 4. But that was before we watched his new ad for Dior Homme – now, as far as we’re concerned, Robert Pattinson has arrived!

InStyle UK:

We can’t think of a better way to start the week than with the news that the Robert Pattinson for Dior Homme Parfum campaign has, finally, been officially unveiled. Hooray! (…) Read Robert Pattinson’s full interview in the InStyle October issue – on sale now – and see the new film for Dior Homme in all its glory.

The Fashion Spot & @fashion_spot:

Soooo, Robert Pattinson’s Dior commercial is MUCH more interesting (read: hotter) than the ad #DiorRob
Robert Pattinson’s full commercial for Dior Homme is here and now we know why he was paid $12 million for it.

OK! Magazine:

It’s an incredibly sexy film project where you’ll see Rob running around on rooftops, ballroom dancing, and riding down the shore in a convertible with a seriously lucky gal.

iVillage:

Every celebrity fragrance commercial is supposed to be sexy, but Robert Pattinson’s new one really succeeds. (…) Mission accomplished! Personally, we liked it enough to watch both the official ad and the uncensored director’s cut. (There’s also a behind-the-scenes video, if you want some Bashful Real-Life Rob to balance out your Sexy Commercial Rob.)

Fashion Foie Gras:

Women the world over will be swooning over Robert Pattinson for Dior Homme today as the first official Dior Homme Fragrance Director’s Cut video has just been released. (…) One thing’s for sure… Pattinson’s still got it. Excuse us while we take a moment to compose ourselves before continuing on with writing today’s news.

My Fashion Life:

We’re not going to lie, Dior has been good to us. We’ve been treated to a few sneak peeks of Robert Pattinson’s Dior Homme ads over the past few months which have whet our appetites for the full thing quite nicely.

But now it’s not about the sneak peeks or teasers, as the whole Robert Pattinson for Dior Homme director’s cut video has been released… and it’s better and hotter than we could have ever imagined.

Edward Cullen has officially left the building!

Elle UK:

Robert Pattinson’s Dior Homme ads have been a long time in the unveiling, but our patience is today doubly rewarded – with both the uncut video, and second film of the actor (bearded and knitwear-clad) talking us through it in his own words.

Inquisitr:

Robert Pattinson’s full on, full Dior Homme advert touched down yesterday and it’s incredible.
Post the June announcement of the 27-year-old’s new role as the face of Dior Homme fragrance, the teasers and image releases since fade in comparison to a walking, talking, moving, Pattinson in action — which is what happens in the official and uncensored director’s cut of the ad.

breaking-dawn-art-090811-2

By Todd Gilchrist

Over the weekend, Summit Entertainment released Breaking Dawn – Part 2 on Blu-ray, along with an Extended Edition of Part 1, providing fans with one last, long, long look at the end of The Twilight Saga.

4. The actors embellished their wedding toast speeches after Stephenie Meyer wrote outlines for most of them.

5. When time came to film the first part of the lovemaking scene where Bella joins Edward in the water, it never stopped raining and it was too cold. “So we bailed out on that idea,” Condon explains. “And then once the film was finished, we went down to the Virgin Islands and did this one scene there – which is the literal last night of shooting Breaking Dawn.”

6. There was a more explicit version of the “consummation” scene. “It wasn’t that much different,” he says, “but there was more of a sense, probably, that they were having sex. And always done romantically, but those things become so subjective: that thrust that he did just as we fade out, there was more of that.”

9. Condon has a grand vision for his stars’ respective futures in Hollywood. “I can see Kristen as a director. I can see Rob [Pattinson] as a writer. I can see Taylor [Lautner] as a producer and studio head. They’re very much movie lovers.

12. Robert Pattinson is a natural-born dad. “He is unbelievably tender with babies, with children,” Condon reveals. “There’s something about him that changes when he’s with babies. He’s just so sweet and caring, and I think you get a little glimpse of that here.”

13. Condon says he created specific rules about the way to shoot the Renesmee birth scene, not only because of MPAA considerations but because it was the best way to keep the film’s point of view consistent with the rest of the storytelling. “We only see what Bella can see,” he says. “We see her, and then we see her point of view. So when Rob goes out of frame, if you know the book, you know what he’s doing down there. And you can hear what he’s doing down there, but we’re not showing what he’s doing down there. I think that tends to make things more potent.”

15. The opening scenes of Breaking Dawn – Part 2, which take place in the forest, were all actually shot in a parking lot in Canada, with a green screen behind actors Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson.

Excerpt:

The aforementioned Pattinson, Gadon, and Durand are the triumvirate which is a constant throughout most of the film. Constantly at Packer’s side, Torval is both protector and father figure to the affluent boy king. His almost-robotic yet endearing performance (praise here, not disdain) takes quite a bit of discipline, resulting in what may be the most sympathetic of the leads. Gadon also has the unenviable task of “dumbing down” for this role as a cold, unemotional trophy wife. Her talent and beauty shine through but only just enough to convince us of Packer’s decision to include her in his life. Finally, as the somewhat reluctant son around whom the rest of Packer’s solar system revolves, Pattinson’s delicately understated performance improves in inverse proportion to the state of Eric’s personality as it evolves. It’s an acquired taste. It means, by definition, the viewer needs to follow along to fully appreciate what he does here. Many won’t get that far, and that would be a shame. Few actors of his generation would be able to take on such a nuanced role and make it believable. The selection of Pattinson, in taking on the challenge of playing an uncharacteristically unsympathetic protagonist, was a coup for Cronenberg and the performance which helps make Cosmopolis a stunning creative accomplishment.

As a avid Twi-hard and overall fan of movies, I was so excited for the release of Breaking Dawn Part 2. To say I had high expectations for this film would be an understatement and the adrenaline was racing all of opening day until show time. It has now been two weeks and I am honored and excited to be giving my review for what I believe is the most anticipated film of 2012.

In my opinion, Breaking Dawn Part 2 is the best executed film in the franchise and was one of the most exciting films to ever see in a theater. From the opening montage that pay homage to the opening sequences of the first four films to the very end had me on the edge of my seat. It should be noted I saw the film opening night with a friend who had not read the books but became a fan of the series because of the films and the theater was sold out here in New York. There was a good mixture of demographics in the audience: men, women, old and young.

The film picks up literally where Part 1 left off and I was immediately stricken by how clear, sharp and colorful the film appeared most likely to show Bella’s new heightened vision. As for Bella herself, I love how mature and confident she looked physically and mentally and truly appeared to be Edward’s equal. For the record, I will say this is the BEST BOTH Edward and Bella looked in the series (crazy considering Part 1 was filmed at the same time as this one). If there was one minor issue I had it was the first hunt scene. It appeared to be a bit rush and some of the running sequences didn’t look realistic even to Twilight standards. Despite that, it did stick to the basic points to the scene in the book and the film quickly picked up a bit from there.

As usual, I love that it not only kept direct lines from the book but had its funny moments as well such as Bella finding out about Jacob’s imprinting, the arm wrestling moment, Emmett’s jokes and Charlie’s scenes among others. The audience and I loved every minute of that which was needed considering how tense the film would later get.

The romance scenes were perfect and just enough. Not too much and not too little. Bella and Edward are now parents with a mission and there isn’t really time for just them anymore so it was nice that they wasn’t too much intimate scenes with them and stuck with the book as well. Robert and Kristen’s chemistry was very evident during this film and truly the best yet. For the record, I found the vampire on vampire action scene to be VERY intimate and almost found myself uncomfortable at times but maybe that was just me but also a testament to their chemistry on screen.

One thing I was terrified for this film however was the image and progression of Renesmee. I believe that they did the best job possible and the baby (though clearly CGI) didn’t creep me out as it did other viewers. I tried to see it as that Nessie isn’t a regular or average human child because she isn’t entirely human so being a supernatural, she would look a bit different. Plus, the baby appeared maybe twice in the whole film so it was a minor detail that wasn’t the heart of the film but the existence of Renesmee herself. Mackenzie Foy did an amazing job of playing a child of love and innocence with her best scene coming during her personal confrontation with Aro during the climax. Though she only had two words then, she showed great strength, probably more than her parents.

One great aspect of this film was the introduction of the new covens and vampires. To be fair, not  everyone spoke and was just there to be there such as the American Nomads and Irish coven but I did love the ones that stood out such as the Denalis, Garett, Benjamin and the Amazon coven. They looked exactly how I pictured them and had me interested in knowing their stories as well. The Romanians were great too and gave a bit of comedic relief and was pleasantly surprised by their impact on the film.

Now to the big moment of the film, the battle! To say I was shocked was an understatement. Even having read the book numerous times including that week, I couldn’t have seen that shock and twist coming. I believe that was the BEST change they have made from either book to the film in the series and was very satisfying. I vividly remember even my friend was stunned upon seeing the first character’s death in the battle and the audience reaction. There has never been a film that I seen that garnered that much reactions from the audience. Everything from screaming to cheers, gasps and even tears.  I’m still not sure what was bigger, the initially shock of the battle of the twist of it. Either way, it gave a great battle sequence that wasn’t in the book and wasn’t hinted even in the trailers.

Now at the end of my review comes the end of the movie. I loved the mental connection Alice made with Edward (though we can argue if Alice could have seen what she saw because of Nessie and Jacob not being vampires or humans) it made for a nice moment in the film and a tease to fans who would want to know more about Nessie’s future. The last scene in the film of course would feature Bella showing Edward her memories which was so beautiful! It was as if I was remembering those scenes myself watching the for the first time and reliving the memories. It was also very touching that Bella and Edward’s last words in the film would be “forever” a nod to the tag line of their individual posters and the final word in the book. The end credits was the most classiest way a franchise with so many beloved characters could end with a roll coll. The audience cheered for almost everyone from the new vampires to the favorable human Jessica (Anna Kendrick) to new Cullen member Nessie (Mackenzie Foy) and of course the final three Taylor, Robert and Kristen. This film is not only my favorite and the best one hands down but in hinds sight, I believe that Summit made the best call to split the book into two films. With so much detail I don’t believe if could have been one film and it gave us the fans one more year to “fan girl” or soak in the hype of Twilight before it ends. I cannot thank Summit, Bill Condon, the cast and Stephanie Meyer enough for such a great film and amazing franchise. My friend who hadn’t read the books said something interesting–she “completely underestimated Twilight”. Now she finally saw what I had for four years.

Thank you @MsEssie8710!
