Wait, did the new Batman bolt the gun that killed his parents to his Batsuit's chest?

Wait, did the new Batman bolt the gun that killed his parents to his Batsuit's chest?

The Batman director Matt Reeves showed off the first look at the new Batsuit—and, to a lesser extent, the new Batman—earlier this afternoon , reassuring anyone who was worried about it that Robert Pattinson does, indeed, possess a chin. The suit itself came under significantly more scrutiny, as it typically does, with fans noting its similarities both to the one favored by the Dark Knight in...

The Batman begins as director Matt Reeves releases first footage of Robert Pattinson's Dark Knight

The Batman begins as director Matt Reeves releases first footage of Robert Pattinson's Dark Knight

It’s a big day in pop culture news, the bigness of which is only slightly lessened by the fact that this is something that has already happened a few times in the last couple decades, but either way it’s always exciting when we get our first look at a new Batman. It immediately became a meme when Zack Snyder released the first look at Ben Affleck’s sad Batman , and people in the early 2000s...

Christopher Nolan on his mysterious Tenet: "There’s no question, it’s the most ambitious film we’ve made"

Christopher Nolan on his mysterious Tenet: "There’s no question, it’s the most ambitious film we’ve made"

Warner Bros. has been mostly tight-lipped about Christopher Nolan’s Tenet, withholding plot details and releasing a teaser that raised more questions than it answered. That changes this weekend, as a trailer for the project is looming and select IMAX screenings of The Rise Of Skywalker  will be treated to a prologue sequence for the film. In advance of the veil being lifted, Nolan has shared...

The Lighthouse's Robert Eggers on his favorite tender moment between Robert Pattinson and Willem Dafoe

The Lighthouse's Robert Eggers on his favorite tender moment between Robert Pattinson and Willem Dafoe

Director Robert Eggers’ first “New England folktale,” The Witch , became an instant genre classic, bringing literal Hell to the idyllic home of a Puritan family in the 1630s. And though his follow-up, The Lighthouse , maintains some of its predecessor’s more horrifying elements—isolation from society, evil birds, a mounting sense of dread—it also offers up a surprising amount of comedy and a...

Heavy is the Timothée that wears the crown in new trailer for Netflix's The King

Heavy is the Timothée that wears the crown in new trailer for Netflix's The King

In a time when every old film, comic, and theme park ride is getting mined for content, there’s something refreshing about wunderkind actors like Timothée Chalamet and Robert Pattinson throwing their weight behind a loose, thoughtful (but not official) riff on William Shakespeare’s Henry IV and V. In Netflix’s The King, director David Michôd (The Rover , War Machine ) again linked up with...

Robert Pattinson is glad audiences are finding the comedy in The Lighthouse

Robert Pattinson is glad audiences are finding the comedy in The Lighthouse

Though he’ll soon don the cape and cowl of The Batman , Robert Pattinson has spent the better part of the decade putting his franchise days behind him with surprising roles in some fantastic independent cinema. His latest—The Lighthouse — is a doozy, capturing him in stark black-and-white photography, and covering him in sea brine, kerosene, and every bodily fluid imaginable. As A.A. Dowd...

The Lighthouse’s Robert Eggers: “Nothing good happens when two men are trapped in a giant phallus”

The Lighthouse’s Robert Eggers: “Nothing good happens when two men are trapped in a giant phallus”

There’s no point in asking Robert Eggers about historical authenticity in his films. First of all, both The Witch and The Lighthouse have supernatural creatures in them, making the question ridiculous in context. But Eggers has also made it clear that he’s not interested in doing anything else. It’s like asking a comedian why they tell jokes, or an action star why it’s important that they do...

The Lighthouse is an insanely inspired buddy comedy in the key of A24 horror

The Lighthouse is an insanely inspired buddy comedy in the key of A24 horror

Robert Pattinson and Willem Dafoe have the kind of faces Norma Desmond waxed nostalgic about in Sunset Boulevard. Like all the stars of the silent era, they don’t need dialogue; a whole movie could be hung on the topography of their features, on what Pattinson does with those haunted eyes he used to fix on Kristen Stewart and how Dafoe uses that toothy goblin grin of his for mirth or menace....

Jonah Hill and Jeffrey Wright are in talks for Matt Reeves' The Batman

It sounds like Warner Bros. has just activated the “Jonah Hill And Jeffrey Wright Signal” that sits atop the Gotham City Police Department, because both of them are now in talks to take on major roles in director Matt Reeves’ The Batman. This is the one starring Robert Pattinson as the Dark Knight, and though specific details have been slim, we’ve been hearing for years that this movie would...

Sorry, 'shippers: Robert Pattinson's Batman will never meet Joaquin Phoenix's Joker

Indicating that Warner Bros. and DC may have actually learned a lesson from its desperate need to compete with Marvel Studios by forcing together a cinematic universe out of movies that didn’t necessarily deserve one, Joker director Todd Phillips ha declared that Joaquin Phoenix’s Clown Prince Of Crime will “definitely not” meet the new Robert Pattinson Batman in some future crossover movie....

You can practically see the barnacles on this new trailer for Robert Eggers' The Lighthouse

The Lighthouse, Robert Eggers’ “enjoyably deranged” follow-up to satanic horror hit The Witch , looks as funny as it does unnerving, especially in its latest trailer. In it, the two lighthouse keepers played by Willem Dafoe and Robert Pattinson bark the word “what!” at each other as the sea pounds relentlessly away on all sides. One can imagine the real-life tension on set, between the

Robert Pattinson expected way more blowback from his Batman casting

Robert Pattinson expected way more blowback from his Batman casting

Robert Pattinson opened up for the first time about his casting as the Caped Crusader in Matt Reeves’ upcoming The Batman, revealing that, ope, people found out about it way too soon. In fact, the conflicting reports saying that Nicholas Hoult was also up for the role were absolutely correct. “When that thing leaked, I was fucking furious,” Pattinson told Variety in a new cover story....

The internet is ready for Robert Pattinson to be hot again

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but few would quibble with Robert Pattinson’s heartthrob status, the likes of which he’s more or less cast off over the last several years. The Twilight alum’s dressed himself down in a lot of his more recent roles, looking a touch grungier in indies like Good Time , The Rover , and the upcoming The Lighthouse , which finds him sporting a fierce, unwashed...

The waves keep crashing in this eerie trailer for Robert Eggers' The Lighthouse

The waves keep crashing in this eerie trailer for Robert Eggers' The Lighthouse

Much of what we’ve heard about Robert Eggers’ follow-up to The Witch is how goddamned miserable it was to film. Stars Willem Dafoe and Robert Pattinson apparently had “very different” methods, and Pattinson hasn’t been shy about recounting how much he wanted to punch Eggers in the face after five takes of getting sprayed in the face with a fire hose. Still, buzz around The Lighthouse has...

Jaden Smith on Robert Pattinson: "He will be the best Batman"

In all the hullaballoo surrounding the news that Robert Pattinson’s been cast as Batman , do you know who came out as the winner of it all? Twilight fans, that’s frickin’ who. Who better, then, to lead the charge of fans to the theaters to see the newest iteration of Bruce Wayne than a raging Twihard? Jaden Smith, in his rightful calling, will be the one. Smith expressed his excitement about...

Willem Dafoe on filming The Lighthouse with Robert Pattinson: "Our methods are very different"

There are some weird surface similarities between the careers of Willem Dafoe and his young The Lighthouse co-star Robert Pattinson; both men have been celebrated (albeit in different corners of the cinematic world) for playing vampires, both have ably walked a fine line between commercial projects and more purely artistic endeavors with their choices of work, and both (as of late, at least)...

Robert Pattinson prophesied his Batman casting in his Twilight: Eclipse commentary track

In a rousing turn of events, Robert Pattinson has reportedly been cast as the newest Batman. And, while that has many people up in arms, it’s not that out of left field nor is it a particularly bad decision. At all. Has he shown that he can make sparkling in the sun look painful and driving a silver Volvo look stressful? Yes. Has he also proven he can act his pants off and conquer the Fuck...

Look, your new Batman really hated the Twilight movies, too

Batman is a brooding, orphaned, rich vigilante—attributes you could also assign to one (1) Edward Cullen, in fact. The undeniable connection between the two has only just now come to light because Robert Pattinson has reportedly been cast as the next actor to take on the iconic role of Batman. To a majority of people, Pattinson is known simply as the sparkling vamp with no fangs but a hunger...

Robert Pattinson is now Batman, which we swear is not a Twilight joke

Robert Pattinson has spent the last several years shedding the shadow of (semi-) nocturnal predators, moving away from his career-making role in the Twilight movies—a franchise he reportedly viewed with a not-inconsiderable amount of eye-rolling amusement, if not outright disdain—in favor of more challenging films like last year’s Good Time  and Claire Denis’ recent High Life . (And also that...
