It was only a matter of time before the news about Robert Pattinson’s new movie leaked online. Since the first Twilight film, the British actor has been inundated with film offers and has kept pretty much to himself as a result. However, he has now opened up to the press about his next movie, which is set to be released in 2019.

The actor has become something of a recluse since the first Twilight film. Since then, he has mostly shied away from the spotlight, only appearing in smaller projects here and there. While he has not ruled out future collaborations with Stephenie Meyer, he has not been in the public eye since he was seen alongside Kristen Stewart at the 2018 Golden Globes. Since then, he has been working on his new movie, which will be released in 2019.

Plot Details

Details about the plot are sparse, but we know that Pattinson will be playing the lead role of David Marks. The film is based on the real-life story of serial killer David Berkowitz (also known as the “Son of Sam”), who terrorized New York City in the 1970s and ’80s. It will be co-written and co-directed by Danny DeVito, and it will hit theaters on August 8, 2019. The plot synopsis is as follows:

“In New York City in the early 70s, a serial killer begins terrorizing the city. David Berkowitz is known as the ‘Son of Sam,’ and his gruesome crimes have earned him the nickname ‘the pencil-necked ghost.’ Detective Lieutenant Mark Lee is put in charge of a task force to hunt down the vicious murderer. Lee partners with Detective Joe Ransom to get to the bottom of what began as a string of seemingly inexplicable homicides. But as the bodies start to pile up, the police are forced to reexamine their methods and question whether or not they are dealing with a professional or a madman. What is revealed is the shocking conclusion that they are, in fact, both. As the investigation progresses, the detectives discover that Berkowitz is not only a professional but also a prodigy, whose ingenious mind and vast knowledge are beyond his years. Soon after, it is revealed that Berkowitz’s parents were both killed by the same gun. This leads the detective to question whether or not the killings were a sign of revenge or something worse. With the media circus surrounding the case getting under his skin and a police psychologist suggesting that he is in fact a product of his environment, Lee has to decide whether or not to take matters into his own hands and end the life of this bizarre ‘boy genius.'”

Pattinson will be joined by an ensemble cast of renowned Hollywood names. While we don’t know who else will be playing a role in the movie, we do know that DeVito, who will be co-writing and co-directing, will be appearing in the movie. He will play the role of Al Ruddy, the corrupt city police captain who is partnered with Lee. He is known for his role in the classic movie Death on the Nile. Other notable names that will be appearing in the film include John Goodman (who will be playing the role of Sheriff Frank Hollis), Michael Shannon (who will be playing the role of Jack Scagnetti), and Bill Hader (who will be playing the role of Detective Larry Briscoe). This should be enough to get you hyped up for the movie.

Release Date

The film will be released on August 8, 2019, so you will have to make your way to the theaters early in the morning to catch it. It is worth noting that this is the same day that the new Godzilla movie will be released. While they are completely different entities, it is still a bit of an odd matchup considering that both Godzilla and the Son of Sam are slated for release on the same day.

The official synopsis for the newly released Godzilla vs. King Kong has not been released yet, but we know that it stars William H. Macy and Thomas M. Wright as the adult versions of the Kong and Godzilla characters, respectively. Wright will be playing the role of the elder statesman of Godzilla movies, which are slated to start in 1939 with the first film produced by the studio Toho. This will be the first installment in what is supposed to be a trilogy, and it is also the first time that the two iconic characters have been on screen at the same time. According to recent reports, the film will be a mixture of drama and comedy, which should make it interesting indeed.

Alongside the above movies, which have been getting a lot of attention because they are set to be released on the same day, there is also the upcoming Terminator movie, Terminator: Dark Fate, which will be released on June 12, 2019. This is also a bit of an odd match-up since the Terminator and Son of Sam characters were both created by the legendary Bill Arts. Arts, who also co-created Hulk Hogan with Gene Deitch, passed away in 2015, so this will be a strange coincidence if the new movie turns out to be a tribute to him. It will be interesting to see what Arts would think about this latest incarnation of his characters since we have not heard from him since 2015.

The above movies are some of the most anticipated releases of the next few months, and it is easy to see why. Not only do they have famous Hollywood stars and directors attached to them, but they also have something of a unique connection to some of the most iconic characters of all time. What’s not to like?


This is a very important aspect of any movie, and it is especially prevalent in big-budget studio films. Without great cinematography, even the most incredible acting performance could be ruined. It’s not about the camera angles and flashy effects, although those are certainly important. The point is that the director of photography needs to work with the editor to create a more cohesive narrative. When the two work together, the result is usually nothing short of stunning. This is especially crucial in low-budget indie films where every little bit of money goes towards making the perfect final product.

The DOP for the Son of Sam movie is Tim Van Patten. He has done work for shows such as Family Guy and American Horror Story and has worked with directors such as Danny DeVito and Kevin Smith. He also notably worked on the special photo-montage sequences for Tim Burton’s Mad Max movie. Here’s a little bonus trivia for you: Mad Max was also the movie that launched the career of Kate Winslet, and she briefly appears in one of the Son of Sam movies as well. In the film, Winslet’s character is kidnapped by a group of bandits and held hostage for a while. She is eventually set free, but not before the two share a passionate kiss.


If you’re from New York City, then you know how important it is to have movies set there. First and foremost, the lights at night are absolutely stunning. They’re not just pretty lights that you see in films; they’re real. It’s like going to the theater and watching a sunset. 

 The other important factor is that New York City is a place where anything can happen. Crime is rampant, and it often involves desperate characters who will do whatever it takes to survive. You’re constantly confronted with new situations and new challenges. It makes for some incredibly interesting and immersive theater. All these elements, along with the fact that the story is based on a true incident, make for an explosive mixture that could result in one thrilling ride or two heart-pounding experiences.

If you’re looking for a new challenge, then look no further. You could be diving into one of the most amazing worlds ever created by the human imagination.
