The Trailer for The lost city of Z came out yesterday.
In 1925, the legendary British explorer Percy Fawcett ventured into the Amazon jungle in search of a fabled civilization. He never returned.
If you were Robert Pattinson, recovering Twilight heartthrob, what would you do? Load a rowboat full of franchise money and sail off into the sunset? Hole up somewhere until the world has forgotten you played a movie vampire? Sign on to a few artsy indies? Or would you accept a lucrative contract with Dior and segue into fashion design? Because Pattinson has opted for the last route in his Hollywood “choose your own adventure.”
In a new interview, the actor reveals that he has branched out into other creative fields—specifically fashion.
“I’ve started making clothes,” Pattinson tells Numéro magazine. “For the last two years, I’ve been visiting producers and craftsmen. There’s already quite a few pieces. I love doing it. My style is influenced by the cities I go to, sourcing fabrics and local skills.”
So what type of aesthetic might Pattinson’s forthcoming fashion collection entail?
“In Los Angeles it’s really easy to work with denim and do workwear inspired clothes,” the actor says. “In England I look more towards wool and knitwear. What I do is pretty multifaceted, clothes for men and for women, things that I make with friends. . . . But I’m not going into too much detail, I don’t want to jinx anything.”
While he declined to say more about his clothing project, Pattinson did reveal that he will be expanding his collaboration with Dior (where he is the face of the Homme fragrance) to include fashion ads.
“Our collaboration is even extending to clothes starting this year,” Pattinson adds. “The first campaign comes out in April. I just feel super relaxed in that atmosphere, there’s nothing corporate about it.”
In the meantime, Pattinson is continuing acting, with a few projects lined up including ones with French director Claire Denis and experimental Spring Breakers filmmaker Harmony Korine. Pattinson realizes, though, that it might still take some time for the world to associate him with anything other than Twilight.
“I guess that the public have a certain image of me,” Pattinson concedes. “I still feel like I need to prove myself. I haven’t had enough lead roles for people to associate me with something else, to see me in a different light. In the meantime I’m taking my own route, always with diversity in mind.”
“Twilight” fame Robert Pattinson will be seen in Claire Denis’ directorial sci-fi movie “High Life.” It is said to be the most ambitious project of the French director and includes Patricia Arquette and Mia Goth, along with Pattinson. It is speculated that the movie has a great theme and is said to be a wonderful project. The production of “High Life” will start in summer, and it is expected to come out in the end of 2017 or probably the initial quarter of 2018.
According to Screen Daily, the movie features a group of criminals tricked into a dangerous space mission as a result of which they will be freed if it turns out to be successful.
As mentioned by Indiwire, the story is based on the character of Monte, who raises his daughter named Willow in a space aircraft that is heading towards a black hole, its final destination. He is said to have fathered Willow against his wishes, and later he realizes the love bond and connection between them.
The storyline sounds brilliant, and it will be a sheer good experience to watch it on screen. However, no more details have been revealed about the cast and about the expected release dates of “High Life.” Robert Pattinson will start shooting for the film this summer in Germany.
Aurelien Barrau, a renowned physicist and black hole expert, has been roped in the project as a scientific advisor. Denis is teaming up with cinematographer Agnès Godard and Stuart Staples to create music and sound design for “High Life.”
Robert Pattinson will be starred in the role of an astronaut in the movie. He will also be seen in upcoming films like “Good Time” and “The Lost City of Z.”
