Yes, love is in the air this week and we at Moviefone are not immune to the charms (and, um, marketing) of Valentine’s Day. In the spirit of romance, we’ve compiled a list of upcoming, first-time* screen couples we’re really looking forward to, in movies that run the gamut from action-fantasy to romantic-comedy.
Whether these new — onscreen anyway — relationships work or not remains to be seen, but that just makes it all the more exciting.
Robert Pattinson & Emilie de Ravin
Starring In: ‘Remember Me’ (March 12)
Why We’re Psyched: It may be difficult for hardcore Twihards to accept Edw… uh, Rob in a passionate relationship with anyone other than Kristen Stewart (who’s currently busy with ‘The Yellow Handkerchief’ and ‘The Runaways’), but the rest of us are psyched to see him paired with lovely Aussie de Ravin (‘Lost,’ ‘Brick’) — and playing a mere mortal! — in this drama about a rebellious New Yorker and the young woman who helps him overcome emotional scars from a family tragedy.
‘For The Twilight Saga: New Moon we wanted the vampires to look like supermodels and the werewolves to look brawny and rugged,’ says Nathan Mellalieu, the Canadian personal trainer who got Robert Pattinson (possibly the world’s most lusted after actor), burly newcomer Taylor Lautner, and most of the other actors ready to play their supernatural roles in the film. Anyone who’s seen New Moon will know Mellalieu certainly achieved that goal, but how did he do it?
‘When they came to Vancouver – where New Moon was filmed – some of the actors were fitter than others,’ says Mellalieu. ‘Kellan Lutz, who plays one of the most ripped vampires in the film, was already in good shape, but a few needed more attention. Everyone had a tailored routine that would keep them motivated and develop the parts of their body that needed work. Read more…
‘The Twilight Saga’ star Robert Pattinson gets romantic in his new movie ‘Remember Me,’ and he’s talking to ET about his first impression of sexy co-star Emilie De Ravin!
“I was shooting the end of one of the ‘Twilight’ movies, ‘New Moon,’ in Italy and we were going through casting for ['Remember Me'],” he explains. “The director said, ‘I think I found this girl I think you’ll find quite interesting,’ and sent me this e-mail with her audition tape.
“My Internet connection was so slow that I could only get the beginning, which was her messing up for about 35 seconds,” continues Robert. “She was really funny, you know, messing up and kind of quite charismatic — but I didn’t know that she was messing up at the time, I thought she was actually doing the scene and kind of just improvising with it and just making it up.” Read more…
Pierce Brosnan talks about Robert Pattinson during his interview with Cinematical.
To shift gears a bit, speaking of media-centric figures, you’re in Remember Me with Robert Pattinson, which must have been totally bizarre to try and film in New York City.
PB: [laughs] It was. Well, I’ve seen it. I’ve never encountered such attention in my career. I mean, I certainly had it but on a day-to-day basis, this young man certainly acquitted himself very well. And I think he was just completely blindsided by everything. And here he was doing a drama, which he’s executive producer on, and he had a heavy workload every day, and it’s a hard one to be wrenched out of every time you step out of our trailer.
Especially in New York.
PB: And there’s nowhere to hide. There’s nowhere to run. You know, you’re damned if you do, and you’re damned if you don’t… You have to go to emotional places where you really need to [put your] head down and [look] straight ahead… It’s a very dramatic movie, and it’s a beautiful movie. It’s a love story. I play his father. What can I say about it? I’m very proud of that.
The cold winter months are about to get a whole lot hotter! We’ve secured two new exclusive images from Robert Pattinson’s upcoming romantic drama, “Remember Me” (out March 12), and we’re pretty sure that after you get a glimpse at them, you aren’t going to want to do much for the rest of the day except stare.
Looking at these two pics, we can safely say that Emilie de Ravin wasn’t lying when she told MTV News last month that she and Rob hit it off right away. “I flew to New York to test with Rob and we immediately got along and had instant great chemistry, which is not an easy thing to come by,” she said. “Obviously you’re acting, but you want to have that connection with somebody. We had it.”
Though we love seeing Rob in a plaid shirt getting, you know, frisky on a bed, we have to admit this second image might be our favorite. It’s nice seeing him let loose for a role — it’s a welcome change from his polite and guarded Edward Cullen ways. Read more…
