The year 2012 was a big one for Robert Pattinson. The 22-year-old British actor gained worldwide fame when he starred in the movie Life of Pi, and he continues to draw rave reviews for his role as Edward Cullen in the Twilight films. Since then, the brunette bombshell has been open to collaborate with famous directors and to take on starring roles in big-budget films.
Pattinson’s filmography boasts some incredible projects, so it’s no surprise that he continues to attract Hollywood’s attention. In this article, we’ll explore ten of his funniest pictures, from the film Life of Pi to his more recent work in the 2014 film The Rover.
Life Of Pi
Pi, the novel that became the 2013 film Life of Pi, is considered one of the greatest of all time. It was written by Yann Martel and was later adapted for the big screen by John Woo and Rafael Lemkin. Martel’s novel follows the story of a young boy named Pi who grows up in a city zoo after his parents are killed by a tiger. The only other survivor in the zoo is Pi, who is raised by orangutans. Without human contact, Pi develops a keen sense of observation, and after a series of adventures, he ends up in a zoo ship captained by an orangutan named Cheetah. Together, they embark on a journey around the world, which results in Pi being stranded on an island, where he eventually learns to survive independently.
The movie version of Pi is considered exceptionally beautiful, and it’s clear that the filmmakers had a blast making it. The movie itself is an excellent blend of CGI and practical effects, and it’s the perfect example of how to translate the novel’s magical realism into an exciting motion picture. If you’ve never read the novel and are interested in finding out more, we recommend checking it out. It’s a must-read for anyone who enjoys a good adventure story!
The Twilight Saga
Speaking of unforgettable stories, the Twilight Saga is still going strong, fifteen years after New Moon was first released in 2002. The films based on the best-selling and iconic novel by Stephanie Meyer are just as popular as they were in the day they were first released. The Saga follows the adventures of Bella Swan, a seventeen-year-old living in Forks, Washington who falls in love with a vampire named Edward. Together, they form a dangerous alliance that challenges both their livelihoods. While it may seem like the world of the Twilight Saga is full of darkness, it’s the complete opposite — the characters are always willing to help those in need and to fight for what they believe in. It’s a coming-of-age story with an incredibly relatable plot line about the dangers of love and the power of friendship.
The Twilight Saga films were directed by Peter Jackson, who also brought us the Lord of the Rings trilogy, and they’re just as jaw-dropping as those films. It would be an understatement to say that Jackson’s direction is absolutely breathtaking; we couldn’t put it better ourselves. The cinematography is phenomenal, and it’s obvious that Jackson worked with a professional artistry that resulted in truly memorable visuals.
The Rover, which is currently in theaters, is an action-adventure film directed by Nick Cave. The film is based on the novel of the same name by George Mann. Cave’s previous feature film was The Road, which was also based on a survival story and was acclaimed by critics and audiences alike. As with many of Cave’s other films, The Rover is a brutal, spine-tingling thriller that’s certain to make you sit up and take notice. If you’ve never read the novel, the story centers around a group of American college students on a hiking trip to Wales who become stranded when their vehicle breaks down. What starts out as a simple hike soon turns into a fight for survival, and the characters must use their wits to keep one step ahead of nature.
The Rover is an incredibly tense watch, and it raises many interesting questions about human nature and the choices we make when pushed to the limit. The cast, which also includes Thomas Jane, Brendan Fraser, and Carrie Anne Moss, does an excellent job in delivering these questions and making you think about the repercussions of your actions. If you’re looking for a film that will keep you on the edge of your seat, give The Rover a try. It opens in theaters this Friday.
While we’re on the subject of great performances, it wouldn’t be a list of Robert Pattinson’s funniest pictures without mentioning John Wick. The action-adventure film that was directed by Chad Stahelski and stars Keanu Reeves is a pure delight. The John Wick series, of which John Wick is the first installment, follows the story of a retired hitman named John Wick who returns to action after being forced to retire following a disastrous skiing accident. Once again, Wick must take on a series of deadly assignments, this time for the Italian mob. The series of films are incredibly stylish and impressively choreographed. The fights are extremely realistic and have an incredible aesthetic appeal that makes them really stand out.
You might recognize Wick from his appearances in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, where he’s been credited alongside with Robert Pattinson as Executive Producer for Avengers: Endgame. In this capacity, he worked together with the Russo Brothers to co-produce the highly anticipated superhero sequel, and it was ultimately one of the breakout hits of the year. As a fan of both Marvel and John Wick, it’s quite an honor to have both as acquaintances. If you’re looking for a film that will make you laugh and will have you on the edge of your seat, we recommend checking out John Wick. It opens in theaters this Friday.
The Haunted Palace
Last but not least, we have The Haunted Palace, a 1960 Walt Disney movie that served as the model for the Haunted Mansion ride at Disney Parks around the world. This comedy-adventure film, which stars Charlton Heston as the legendary King George III, was directed by Alfonso Iannelli, and it’s a true testament to the magic of film. While Heston does a wonderful job playing a character that’s both brilliant and hilarious, the true star of the movie is the dazzling Technicolor costumes designed by Edith Head. The costumes are what made the world wonder what Princess Grace Kelly was up to in the 1950s, and they still have that power to wow us today. While we’re on the topic of Disney, it wouldn’t be a list of Pattinson’s most memorable performances without mentioning his role in the 2014 Disney film Sing. The film, which was released this past winter, is the twenty-first installment in the Disney animated series, Frozen. It tells the story of Anna, a daughter of the mighty Hans who was raised by wolves and embarks on a journey to find out who she really is. To do this, she teams up with Kristoff, a loyal subject of the king and a man whom she falls in love with despite her best efforts to resist temptation. Together, they embark on an adventure that will help her discover her magical inner self. Though the film was well received by critics and audiences alike, it’s clear that Anna’s journey was not entirely enjoyed by all. The costumes, which were designed by Kelly Bennett and were later taken away by the fashion house of Marjorie Merriweather Post, were the subject of a tremendous backlash, and we’re sure that many women felt empowered by Kelly’s efforts to reclaim the role of a princess and to show women what kind of clothing they should wear according to the style of the 1950s.
Pattinson’s ability to play both serious and comical characters is truly remarkable, and it’s what has propelled his career so far. We can’t think of a better example of this than John Wick. The character of John Wick is both incredibly complex and hilarious, an underdog who rises through the ranks to become a professional hitman, and this makes him all the more memorable. It would be a shame to leave out the film’s funny bits, which are many, so let’s conclude this list with a quick recap of some of the funniest scenes from John Wick.
In every installment of the John Wick series, there are many memorable moments, and it’s a testament to the script by Derek Kolstad and Stephen Thompson that there are no dull moments. One of the things that make John Wick so much fun to watch is that it has a very high rate of renewal, and there’s always something new to look forward to. The action-adventure movie that was directed by Chad Stahelski and stars Keanu Reeves is a true delight. The John Wick series, of which John Wick is the first installment, follows the story of a retired hitman named John Wick who returns to action after being forced to retire following a disastrous skiing accident. Once again, Wick must take on a series of deadly assignments, this time for the Italian mob. The series of films are incredibly stylish and impressively choreographed. The fights are extremely realistic and have an incredible aesthetic appeal that makes them really stand out.
