After gaining worldwide recognition for his role in the “Twilight” film series, Robert Pattinson returns in the new movie, “Good Time”. He is getting recognition for his new role because he is barely recognizable in it.
Robert Pattinson stars in the new film, “Good Time” directed by Ben Safdie and Josh Safdie. Pattinson landed the lead role of Connie Nikas. The movie is about Connie’s troublesome and desperate journey of finding ways to get his brother out of jail after their bank robbery heist went wrong. The said American crime drama film has already been shown at the Cannes Festival on May 25 and will make its official premiere in theaters all over the United States on Aug. 11.
The “Good Time” has been picked up as an official entry to the 2017 Cannes Film Festival and it competed for the Palme d’Or, which is the highest category in the awards ceremony. The film may be getting nominations and awards but Pattinson has been receiving more recognition for his novel role. The world first noticed Pattinson when he was introduced as the Hufflepuff hottie Cedric Diggory in “Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire” in 2005.
He then nabbed the lead role of Edward Cullen in the box-office hit film series, “Twilight”. Pattinson has then been dubbed as the pale shining vampire that teens have grown fond of. However, his new role in “Good Time” proves that he has outgrown his infamous roles as he comes out unrecognizable with dyed hair and a bushy full beard. His new role, which earned him praise, is creating quite the buzz and there is a possibility that he will be nominated for an Oscar.
Pattinson had always been criticized after landing the lead role in “Twilight” and since then he has been trying out independent projects to improve his acting abilities and widen his opportunities. Though “Good Time” is clearly something different for Pattinson, he revealed that working on the 2012 film “Cosmopolis” left an impact on him. The actor revealed that it was the first time he has worked on something complex.
