Kristen Stewart on playing a vampire in 'Breaking Dawn -- Part 2': 'I wanted her to be the best one'
After four Twilight movies playing awkward high schooler Bella Swan, Kristen Stewart was ready to embrace playing a vampire in Breaking Dawn — Part 2 . Says costar Taylor Lautner, “That’s kind of the huge thing that fans are waiting for — to see the clumsy teenage Bella that Kristen did so well suddenly become this super-sexy vampire who’s athletic and graceful. She took it very seriously and pulls it off.” (Click here to see 10 exclusive photos from the new movie.)
Stewart says that years of watching her castmates helped inform how she played Vampire Bella. “I knew every single version of vampire, and I took a little bit from everyone. But I wanted her to be the best.”
Twihards and Don DeLillo fans (DeLihards?), mark your calendars for Aug. 17. That’s when American audiences will finally get to see David Cronenberg’s adaptation of DeLillo’s Cosmopolis, which stars Robert Pattinson as a (dare we say Christian Grey-esque?) billionaire who goes on an existential journey around Manhattan in a limo.
If you can’t wait that long, book a flight to Canada, where the movie opens this weekend, nearly two months before its U.S. debut. (First free health care and now this.) Based on DeLillo’s 2003 novel, movie has a top-shelf cast of costars, including Juliette Binoche, Paul Giamatti, and Samantha Morton.
For those of you who don’t get how David Cronenberg would want to work with Robert Pattinson, just look at Breaking Dawn. If Bella’s pregnancy doesn’t count as a prime example of Cronenbergian body horror, then I don’t know what does. And now, it appears that Pattinson and Cronenberg are hoping to pair up once more following their upcoming Cosmopolis. Pattinson confirmed to EW that he’s attached to the director’s long-gestating Maps to the Stars — although he’s not sure when they would begin production. “I don’t know if I’m doing it next,” he says. Cronenberg has stated that he hopes to cast frequent collaborator Viggo Mortensen as well.
The film would be based on a script by novelist and screenwriter Bruce Wagner, who has also written an adaptation of Jonathan Lethem’s novel, As She Climbed Across the Table, for Cronenberg. “It’s about child stars,” says Pattinson of Wagner’s script. “It’s very funny. It’s very, very dark.”
Cosmopolis, which is based on a 2003 Don DeLillo novel, debuted two weeks ago at the Cannes Film Festival.
Contrary to Internet chatter, Robert Pattinson will not star as handsome Finnick Odair in the Hunger Games sequel Catching Fire. “I woke up this morning and saw all these things about me being cast in The Hunger Games,” Pattinson told USA Today at Cannes on Saturday. “I was kind of curious for a second. So I called my agent.” And? “My agent was like, ‘No,'” Pattinson said. “(My agent) was like no one’s going to offer you that part. I was like, thanks for the reassurance.”
Cannes: Robert Pattinson plays a lethal finance bad boy in David Cronenberg's 'Cosmopolis.' Plus, a Palme d'Or conspiracy theory
David Cronenberg is often the kind of director who makes art when he thinks he’s going mainstream (A Dangerous Method, The Fly) and winds up with a crock when he thinks he’s making art (the inexplicable 1996 Cannes Special Jury Prize winner Crash). Cosmopolis, which premiered this morning, may star the Most Coveted Sexy Franchise Heartthrob in the Universe, Robert Pattinson, but it is nevertheless in the icy, stultifying tradition of such hermetically sealed Cronenberg duds as M. Butterfly and Videodrome. For most of this one, we’re sealed in a white stretch limousine, the interiors of which Cronenberg shoots from symmetrical low angles, so that it feels as if we’re caught inside a black-leather rectangular room. Pattinson plays Eric Packer, a 28-year-old billionaire assets manager who orders his chauffeur to take him across Manhattan for a haircut. He stops and gets out for occasional meals in upscale coffee shops, but mostly, seated in his luxe chamber of a car, he hectors an underling (Jay Baruchel), has sex with one of his mistresses (Juliette Binoche), and holds court on the brave new world of cyber-capitalism, with its liquidly opaque digital ethereality and indomitable new breed of global-transactional high flier.

Cannes 2012 preview: Brad Pitt, Nicole Kidman, and Kristen Stewart bring Hollywood glitz to the French Riviera -- VIDEO
Since its inception in 1947, the Cannes Film Festival has been the ne plus ultra of international cinema, but rarely has the festival featured quite so many American filmmakers and Hollywood movie stars. The 2012 Cannes festival gets underway on Wednesday with the opening film, Wes Anderson’s Moonrise Kingdom, and over the course of the subsequent 11 days, the festival will premiere films starring (deep breath) Brad Pitt, Nicole Kidman, Reese Witherspoon, Kristen Stewart, Zac Efron, Shia LaBeouf, Robert Pattinson, Kirsten Dunst, Tom Hardy, Amy Adams, Viggo Mortensen, and Matthew McConaughey (in two movies!), with filmmakers like Anderson, Lee Daniels, and John Hillcoat screening their films in competition for the first time. Meanwhile, DreamWorks Animation’s Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted and the HBO TV movie Hemingway & Gellhorn are both premiering out of competition.
EW’s Owen Gleiberman will be detailing all his thoughts on the great and not so great at Cannes, but here’s a quick primer on what’s likely to light up the famed Croisette, in chronological order of their big premieres inside the cavernous Grand Théâtre Lumière. READ FULL STORY
Kristen Stewart, who has been mostly silent in the first several Huntsman trailers, finally finds her voice in seven new Snow White and the Huntsman clips released by Universal. And boy is it booming. The Twilight star shows off her pipes in a screaming match with a troll, a steely-eyed showdown with Charlize Theron’s Evil Queen, and more. Still, looking at the tender moment she shares with that troll, it’s hard not to recall Robert Pattinson’s awkward gaze on the other side.
The septet of sneak peeks is chockablock with action, conflict, and special effects — including the very special effect Snow has on her dwarf mantourage and the Huntsman (Chris Hemsworth). Also, one clip offers up an introduction to the Prince (Sam Claflin), who is less Charming than you might imagine. Watch below. READ FULL STORY
