It’s been a pretty eventful couple of years for the ‘Twilight’ and ‘Believe’ actor. After the unexpected commercial and critical success of the former film, Pattinson was quickly propelled into the top tier of Hollywood’s leading men. Since then, he’s starred in major blockbusters including the hugely anticipated ‘The Hobbit’ and ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’, opposite Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron. But it’s been a while since he’s graced the big screen, and his fans are eagerly anticipating the next step in his career.

Why Is Everyone Obsessed With Robert Pattinson’s Career?

It’s not hard to see why Pattinson has continued to draw such enormous attention and interest following the success of ‘Twilight’. The 29-year-old Brit has truly become the male equivalent of Taylor Swift, appearing in films that appeal to a broad audience and scoring box office smashes in the process. He’s currently in the middle of a massive world tour to promote his upcoming film ‘Beyond The Woods’, and his schedule is already packed beyond belief.

Although he remains somewhat of an enigma, the actor has been very open about the reasons for his appeal. In an interview with Esquire, he discussed how he drew on his own insecurities to create his Twilight character: “If you’re an actor, you hopefully have a good idea of what attracted you to the role in the first place – whether it was the character, the script, or the idea of being famous…I think for myself it was a combination of all of those things. It was a very unusual role for an actor – a vampire. Then I read the script and all of a sudden I was like, ‘Ahhh! This is what I need!”’

Esquire’s Richard Rushfield went on to ask, “Why should the role of a vampire appeal to an actor who has never played one on film before?” To which Pattinson replied, “I think because they’re mysterious, because they’re compelling, because there’s something about them that is compelling – whether it’s the idea of giving yourself over to something or not feeling the need to let the world know every moment of your existence.”

The Hype Around Pattinson’s Upcoming Film Will Be Unbelievable

Pattinson will next be seen in the Todd Haynes-directed ‘Beyond The Woods’, a film based on the French author Guillaume Roquette’s six-part memoir: ‘The Art of Fiction’. While the book has had some fantastic reviews – with some comparing it to works by Henry James and Vladimir Nabokov – it has also been described as ‘artificial’. This is somewhat apt, considering it’s the work of a fiction author, but the comparisons to other greats are undeniable. Like James and Nabokov before it, ‘The Art of Fiction’ will certainly be discussed for decades to come.

‘Beyond The Woods’ is set for release later this year, at which point Pattinson will be busy promoting the film with a series of interviews, press conferences, and hopefully a few more awards shows.

Will Robert Pattinson Finally Get To Show Off His Serious Acting Skills?

It’s been over a year since we’ve last seen Pattinson on the big screen, and the wait for his next project is becoming absolutely unbearable. The last we heard, he was hard at work on a musical adaptation of Roald Dahl’s ‘Matilda’, but it seems that development has stalled. As there’s no release date in sight, fans are becoming increasingly desperate for some kind of new project, especially since the last year has seen so many delays and unexpected development cycles.

Pattinson’s Team Hasn’t Been As Busy As Anticipated

Although there have been several delays, it’s still very early in the development process for ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’. That said, we’re not talking months here – it’s taken well over a year for the film to reach this stage, and it’s likely that further delays are on the horizon.

The team behind the upcoming Mad Max sequel have done an incredible job of keeping things under wraps, and it seems that they’re doing everything they can to keep spoilers at bay. This has undoubtedly helped fuel the hype around the project – we still don’t know very much about it, and that’s exactly how the team intended it. Visiting the set of the upcoming film has been a closely-guarded secret, and not even the cast and crew are allowed to talk about it until the film has been released.

What Will Mad Max: Fury Road Be Like?

It’s been a long time coming, but our first real look at Mad Max: Fury Road will finally be here with the much-anticipated premiere later this year. The sequel to George Miller’s acclaimed 1981 film will see the return of several of the original cast members, including Mel Gibson, Tom Hardy, and director George Miller. Based on a script by Danny McBride and David Walsh, the film picks up where the original left off, with Gibson’s Max escaping from a military bunker in the outback of Australia, in search of freedom and justice. The action will be set against the backdrop of a post-apocalyptic world, with much of humanity having been rendered extinct. The picture is being touted as both a rebirth and a comeback for Miller, who previously achieved cult status with his 1971 release, ‘Mad Max.’

The upcoming Mad Max: Fury Road was originally set to be released in December last year but was pushed back to the third quarter of this year. The filmmakers have been extra careful about avoiding spoilers ever since, with no major set photos or interviews being released ahead of the premiere.

How Will Tom Hardy Fit Into The Sequel?

Although we don’t know much about his character in Mad Max: Fury Road, it’s clear that Hardy is in a very pivotal role. Having played both Max and his brother, Maxi, in the original film, it seems that the Mad Stockbroker has been earmarked to take on a more significant role in this year’s sequel. Already, there have been murmurs suggesting that Hardy will be taking on dual roles – that of a cop and criminal – in order to portray a more “rounded” character. This is something that Hardy has been quite open about, and, as he continues to gain popularity and credibility in Hollywood, it wouldn’t be surprising to see more films with multiple roles for the actor.

Will We Finally Learn More About Max’s Backstory?

We know almost nothing about the backstory of Max’s character in Mad Max: Fury Road. In the original film, he is revealed to be the son of a military man and a nurse, and it is implied that he may have some ties to an elite group of warriors known as The Road Warriors. These are some of the few facts we know about the character, and it seems that his entire existence up to this point has been shrouded in mystery.

Mad Max: Fury Road introduces a new character, Furiosa (played by Charlize Theron), who is revealed to be the ruthless leader of a group of survivors who are traveling across the post-apocalyptic landscape in search of water and supplies. It is unclear exactly what happened before the end of the world, but we know that it was caused by “water shortages” (rather than, say, a global warming apocalypse or an asteroid collision). Theron’s role in the film was considerably smaller than that of Hardy and Gibson, and she has spoken openly about how she almost didn’t accept the role.

What Is Roald Dahl’s ‘Matilda’ Adaptation All About?

Finally, we arrive at the last part of this article: ‘Matilda’, the adaptation of Roald Dahl’s timeless and iconic ‘Matilda’ story, which will see Pattinson star as the cunning and charming headmaster of a school for exceptional girls. Based on the 1988 novel, the film follows the title character, a brimming with confidence 11-year-old Matilda, played by newcomer Carey Mulligan. In order to keep her extraordinary gifts a secret, she disguises herself as a “normal” child and attends a boarding school, where she becomes the unlikely friend and confidante of the school’s headmistress, Miss Trunchbull (played by an unrecognizable Helen Mirren). While at school, Matilda befriends another girl, whom she names Billie – an identity she adopts after the real Billie Trunchbull, played by Dakota Fanning – a bullying classmate who continually torments Matilda. It’s a stunning adaptation of one of the most beloved children’s books of all time, and it marks the return of George Miller to the big screen following several decades of ‘Mad Max’ fame.
