Robert Pattinson Hopes for New Swoon in Remember Me Trailer
Once upon a time, Robert Pattinson was God, nervously running his hands through his hair, then flicking that filmy follicular residue into a vast galactic expanse to create suns, solar systems, and human life itself. Then, our new deity seemed to vanish, handing over his media appeal, and screen time to the underage boy-king Taylor Lautner. With the trailer for Remember Me released today, will our absentee Lord return to us once again?
Certainly, the film doesn't appear to stray far from what made Pattinson popular -- not only is it a Summit release, but his Remember Me character is as pale and mopey as Twilight's Edward Cullen, and once again, Pattinson is Saved By Love. This time, it comes in the form of Lost's Emilie de Ravin, whose main quirk is that she loves eating dessert, and it's threatened by bad dads Chris Cooper and Pierce Brosnan. (Incidentally, the latter's shaky accent coupled with the ones put forth by Pattinson and de Ravin are threatening to give Edge of Darkness a run for its money). Will Pattinson's fanbase follow him to yet another romantic melodrama? Let's hope so, or Rob and Miley won't be the only ones moping.
