The Making of Good Time with Robert Pattinson
Good Time was produced on a budget of just $4 million by June Pictures, a production company owned by the Safdie brothers.

The brothers had pitched the idea to Robert Pattinson in the summer of 2016. He reportedly had just two days to decide whether or not to accept the role and he said yes immediately. The movie was filmed in July 2016 and took just 25 days to complete. It was released in August 2017 and has since won numerous awards, including Best Soundtrack at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival.
