The actor rose to international fame for being Edward Cullen in “Twilight.” Decades later he dares to become the Bat Man, but there are other titles not to lose sight of.
Robert Pattinson has managed to remove the Edward Cullen label that the successful saga put on him Twilight with a lot of work and carefully choosing his papers. That teenage idol who lined folders in 2009 has become a highly valued actor by the industry and in his filmography we find a good handful of essential titles.
This display of acting skills and popularity has led him to become the new Batman. Pattinson will take on the role of Bat Man in Matt Reeves’ film, whose premiere will – hopefully – take place on March 4, 2022. The Batman, as the film in question is called, it will be something “radically different from what we have seen in other films” of the superhero, as the actor has revealed on more than one occasion. Among the villains he will face are Enigma (Paul Dano) and Penguin (Colin Farrell), but he will have Catwoman (Zoë Kravitz) on his side to help him take them down.
While we wait for its premiere, here we propose three films from Robert Pattinson’s filmography that will not disappoint. All of them are available on Netflix.
‘Good Time’ (2017)
Everything that can go wrong in a robbery ends up going wrong. That’s what it’s basically about Good Time, a 2020 film by Benny and Josh Safdie – known for their valued Rough diamonds– which was agreed by the critics and the public. Among the Safdies’ portrayal of the underworld, the soundtrack or the visual work, Pattinson’s performance stands out, of course.
The film follows Connie (Pattinson), a robber who involves her brother Nick, a young man with a mental disability, in his latest hit.. From there everything goes from bad to worse. Nick ends up in jail and Connie goes on a relentless quest to post bail and get him out of there. A story full of adrenaline and bad decisions.
‘The devil at all hours’ (2020)
At the end of 2020 it was released on Netflix The devil at all hours, a suspense drama with big names in the cast, including Tom Holland, Bill Skarsgård, Mia Wasikowska, Sebastian Stan and Riley Keough, as well as Pattinson himself. It was an outstanding premiere and not only because of the cast, but because of its brutal portrayal of violence.
Everything takes place in the small town of Knockemstiff, in Ohio. That is where several stories take place whose central axis is fanaticism, the darkness of the human being and his sordidness. Pattinson in question plays a newcomer reverend who hides a devilish side and embroiders it.
‘The King’ (2019)
A historical drama that garnered high ratings after its premiere in 2019. The King, directed by David Michôd – the same from The hunter, also with Pattinson-, it has a mix of elements that end up fitting together perfectly, starting with the performances and ending with how well it squeezes the original Shakespearean material.
The film focuses on the road to manhood of Henry (Timothée Chalamet), an undisciplined young man who inherits the crown and is now forced to learn what it means to be king. He must leave behind his holidays, alcohol and play with his royal friends and take over the country. Pattinson puts on an incredible performance as Louis de Guyenne, an arrogant and absurd being.
