For the past few weeks, we and everyone else in Robland have been talking about Bel Ami. And who can blame us, naked Rob arse is definitely worth talking about. But, MTV had a contest to find the most anticipated film for 2012 and Bel Ami wasn’t the winner.
It all started with Bel Ami up against another of Rob’s 2012 films. (And for the record, Rob had three, yes three films in the contest.) Bel Ami was first slated against Cosmopolis, which wasn’t initially on the list! Cosmopolis was nominated as a wild card. So that put us Rob fans in a tight place.
Which do we want to see more? Naked Rob?
Or Bad ass Gun Wielding Rob?
Well, we were very divided and it was a close race. But Cosmopolis won that round 51.01 %, that’s by .02% people!!
Next, they did it to us again…two Rob movies against each other! This time it was slated against Breaking Dawn Part 2. Which we all know has a BIG following. Meanwhile on the other side of the competition, The Hunger Games was killing each one of its competitors. So, we went to the polls again to see if we could pick a heavy weight contender against the new and much-anticipated Hunger Games and were once again divided.
Breaking Dawn Part 2, where we get to see Daddyward play piano?
Or once again, a young multimillionaire who needs a haircut?
This time it wasn’t as close at 53.52% and we all thought it would be Breaking Dawn. But as MTV states, “ Fans banded together, choosing to support RPattz’s post-vampire career rather than the franchise that made him a star. “Breaking Dawn” was sent packing.” Yes, we are more than just TwiHards. We support ROB even in “indie dramas” and most of us can’t wait for him to be able to break out the Twilight stigma.
In the second to last round Rob and the Cosmopolis cast went up against The Dark Night Rises and kicked some Batman butt!! And then there was the final round. Would Rob fans be able to beat the Hunger Games fans? Some Twi/Rob fans are really looking forward to the Hunger Games. But it seems we banded together enough to just barely win. But win we did!
I wonder what Rob has to say about all this? Hopefully soon we will know. We’ve heard from his costars; Sarah Gadon and Paul Giamatti. And also, from the director himself, David Cronenberg with this quote:
“He’s terrific. He deserves the affection that the fans have for him. He’s incredibly sweet, he’s very funny, he’s very bright and he’s also very knowledgeable about cinema. Not just movies but the history of cinema. He knows a lot about it. He’s just a sweetheart. And he’s totally professional. He’s always right there. We had a lot of fun shooting [the movie] because, as I say, he has a great sense of humor. We just played a lot. I think that’s a really great tone that’s set for everybody on the set. The lead actor has a really big influence on the tone of the shoot. If you’ve got a guy who’s very difficult and neurotic or whatever, they can’t help but affect everybody’s day. But Rob is not like that. He’s just a ray of sunshine. In fact, he’s in absolutely every scene of the movie, so obviously his temperament would have a huge influence on how the shoot went … and it was a dream. It was a beautiful shoot. “
Aww, now who doesn’t want to see Rob in Cosmopolis…and Bel Ami…and Breaking Dawn Part 2…and hopefully many more films to come?!
So now it’s your turn to sound off in the comments about what you are most looking for in Robland in 2012. If your here I know you’ll say any and all. So tell us what your favorite Rob role is so far and do you think it will compete with these new characters?
Thanks to MTV and Robsessed for the info and pics.
