Sneak Peak at Robert Pattinson's Next Flick: 'Little Ashes'

Sneak Peak at Robert Pattinson's Next Flick: 'Little Ashes'-photo

Robert Pattinson, the incredibly celebrated star of the upcoming film Twilight, has more up his sleeve than is known by the general public.

Once the Twilight craze dies down (if that's a possibility), Robert won't be leaving his fans hanging.  In 2009, Robert's flawless face will grace the silver screen as legendary artist Salvador Dali in Little Ashes.

Little Ashes is the untold story of Dali's relationship with revered poet Frederico Garcia Lorca, played by Javier Beltran.  The film documents the transition of the two young artists from close friends to intimate lovers; a claim that Dali vehemently denied up until his death.

Devoted Pattinson fans will be seeing the messy-haired heartthrob in an entirely new light, with rumored guy-on-guy sex highlights, and even a possible Pattinson masturbatory scene.

This could be Robert's chance to prove himself as the Johnny Depp-like actor fans claim him to be.  

As of yet, the film is only scheduled for distribution in the UK. Hopefully U.S. RPattz lovers will be gifted with a release date too!

    I hope its just the first trailer and we get lots more during the year and itno 2009. These days you get at least 3 trailers for a film coering different aspects of the film. I hope they do one focused on the lake scene.

    I love you celebuzz for flagging up this masterpiece of a film. Thank you.I'm a fan who has compared Rob to Depp but on reflection Rob can be so much more. I'll tell you why - because when you see Depp in film's I often feel I;ve seen the character before. There's always a hint of familiarity. Yet with Rob very character is completely different. He never repeats a performance. Everyone is fresh and different. His Toby Jugg in The Haunted Airman is so different from Daniel Gale in Bad Mothers handbook and the same can be said of Art in How to Be and Edward in Twilight. There are some areas he is like Depp. He has the same physicality of acting as Depp. Just watch Rob standing outside the door of his future girlfriends house for the first time. Masterpiece in acting. Also he has an unpredictable feel about him on screen like Depp and a wonderful comic ability like Depp. Even in Little Ashes he makes so much from the comic moments. Fans feel passionately about Rob but not bcause of his looks but his acting talent. I agree you never get a reminder of another character when you see Rob act. Each character is hand crafted. Depp often falls back on what he's done before.

    Which poster do fans prefer? Its hard. I like both. The paint stripe down the middle is effective on one of them but I do like the look of determination and intensity on Rob's face on the other one. I think that has the slight edge for me.

    I was surprised to see celebuzz do this but really pleased as well. Thanks. I agree a How to be one would be good as well as thats going to find it harder to get a distributor as its so quirkily british. Little Ashes has global appeal.

    I'm really excited about Rob's role in this. Even the costumes look amazing. The whole project looks like class.

    You are the first site to flag up Rob' new film so thank you very much. I cant wait to see it. When I read comments like: 'The moonlit water scene was genuinely lovely - it's almost like a dance between them through this shimmering water - I've no idea how they did it. There's a whole sequence set at Cadaques that just blew me away.' or: 'Rob’s hands get a lot of love in this film. He paints. Lots. And clings to stuff. He is also drunk, lots, at the beginning. He does it really well, and looks awesome being carried out of a bar. He wears ruffles. At one point, unless I’m very much mistaken, he is very very briefly dressed as a pirate. At another point he does wear a kind of Moroccan headdress thing that looks a bit like a school tie he's just tied round his head for no good reason. It is inexplicably adorable.' Every review makes me want to see it more and more.

    I do think the poll is confusing because while I think Little Ashes will show the world what a fantastic actor Rob is. I'm also excited about both movies. So I'd select both poll choices.

    People who have seen Little Ashes say Rob's performance is brave and fearless. He handles the drama and comedy with such skill. The sex scenes are beautifully handled. Thanks for giving the film some attention. Fans were thrilled to see it.

    I am so happy to see Robert get the attention he deserves. Hopefully this will help with Little Ashes being distributed in the US as well. I don't think there ever was a movie I wanted to see more that Little Ashes.

    I cant wait to see Little Ashes. It would be madness if it isnt released in the US. The festival reviews are brilliant. I wish the producers would relase the trailer. Thy should bee capitalising on Rob's new fanbase. There is a window of opportunity and they mustnt blow it.

    Another round of thanks here for spotlighting this little film. Rob is amazing & I am one of his many fans that would love to see 'Little Ashes,' as well as 'How To Be.'

    I dont really want Rob compared to any other actor. He's unique. I agree he;s wonderful at creating the physicality of a character something Depp is good at. I love how brave Rob's been with his role choices. Every one has been so different.

    Depp did Nightmare on Elm Street and Twilight is Rob's Nightmare.

    Thank you very much for highlighting Rob's next film. I dont usually like gossip sits like this but at least you are highlighting his work too so hats off to you. Could you do the same with his other new film for which he received Best Actor at the Strasbourg Film Festival. Its called How To Be. You can see images and the trailer via the link. http://themovie-fanatic.com/htb/ Thats been selling out festivals to but doesnt have a distribution deal. Fans are dying to see it.

    You bet he's the next Depp. None of the other young today have Rob's versatility. Charm and warmth are important traits for an actor and Rob and Depp have those qualities.

    I just saw on IMDB that you'd added this page and I'm so happy you did as this film needs to be seen by millions. I'll include a few comments from fans which you can read in detail on the marvelous movie fanatic site on Little Ashes: -- I was really happy - as a Rob fan - with everything in the film. He gets some wonderful light moments (for me, that was when he really shone, because he has this inherent comic timing that you just can't learn and it's onscreen magic), and then some really intense scenes, where he really delivers emotionally too. I've seen reviews of HTB saying that it's amazing how he flips between the two with such speed and skill, and I agree. -- Robert Pattinson as Salvador Dalí. Never has a biographical portrayal been so closely tied with its subject. By no means has a performance ever been so telling. Rob was able to perfectly encapsulate the eccentricities that was Dalí. -- Robert Pattinson plays Dali as such a captivating mix of guileless charm, self-awareness and awkwardness in the early part of the film that it’s easy to see why Lorca would fall for him. -- If you get the chance to see Little Ashes, please take it. It’s a compelling and engaging story about truly fascinating people, the cast don’t put a foot wrong, and even the soundtrack is utterly spell-binding, with moments of Arvo Part-esque stillness, snippets of Lorca’s poetry woven through to give a genuinely ethereal quality and tie the whole thing together. It’s the rarest of rare things – a film that is intelligent, warm, and lingers in your mind, long after the credits have rolled. --- Thank to fans who rushed to see it and report back. Their feedback has been a godsend. Please visit The Movie fanatic site on the film and read all the wonderful comments http://www.themovie-fanatic.com/la/exclusives/exclusives/our_exclusive_raindance_reviews,_part_2/

    The screen was sold out at Raindance thats how popular Rob is and how much fans want to se his other work and they had to put another showing on. Here a a few more snippits from the awesome Lady Bracknewll blog page on Little Ashes He (Rob) is really, really funny. There’s one scene, where he skives off an art lesson, quietly chases Lorca and his girlfriend down the street and nips round them so when they see him he can act casual. He plays it beyond perfectly, with truly awesome comic timing. probably should mention (because I'm sure everyone will in reviews and stuff) that they do include the scene where Lorca and Margarita have sex in front of him and he does... make his own fun. I expected that scene to be really off-putting and awkward to watch, but the way they’ve done it – it’s the cornerstone of the whole film, in a way, explains a lot of what happens later. It wasn’t at all what I expected, ended up being one of the saddest moments in the whole thing, because Rob is awesome and kind of broke my heart in that scene. My favourite bit? Either Rob hiding behind a plant, necking several glasses of wine, and when asked what he’s doing saying ‘trying to get really drunk’, or a scene on the beach, where he’s lying with his head in Lorca’s lap. The camera starts at his feet, crawls its way up his body, lingers on his face, while Javier reads poetry to him and plays with his hair. Or the one where they drunkenly shout revolutionary slogans and then have to run from the guard, end up ensconced in a doorway and have the most adorable exchange about girls. Or a scene right at the end that I can't say anything about because it's the most massive of massive spoilers.http://ladybracknell.livejournal.com/103621.html?page=1#comments

    Thank you for highlighting the film and supporting Rob in the right way. Fans who saw the film at Raindance said Rob is amazing. Here's a few comments from people: 'The passion between Robert Pattinson playing Dali and Javier Beltran as Lorca is wonderful, when they are happy you can't help but smile with them and when they are tense you will be gripping the armrests of your chair. ' 'The final scene of Dali with the black paint (no I wont go into any more detail than that it would ruin it!) is cinematic genius, so powerful and moving.' Whilst the quality of acting is remarkable throughout this is a scene where the genius of the filming takes centre stage. It begins with a dark cloudy night with Dali and Lorca jumping out of a rowing boat into the ocean. It's so dark they can barely see each other, but then the moon comes out and the whole scene is transformed, both characters look ethereal in the moonlight. The filming follows them as the twist around in the water, it films them from below and above until you can barely tell who's who, in the same way they feel themselves becoming one they become one in the eyes of the audience too. Under the moonlight they share their first kiss, all pretence dropped they are entirely themselves. It is one of the most romantic scenes I have seen. When it cuts back to the scene later in the film there is a powerful feeling of longing for the simple beauty which they shared that night, one which they both know they can never return to.'

    Can't wait to see this film. I've heard great things about Rob's performance, from those who have seen it already. I agree, hopefully the US will get a release as well.
