Robert Pattinson On Set of 'Cosmopolis'!

Robert Pattinson suits up as he walks to the set of his new film, Cosmopolis, on Sunday (May 29) in Toronto, Canada.

The 24-year-old Twilight star filmed scenes with his co-stars Sarah Gadon and Kevin Durand at a local diner.

Robert is playing Eric Packer, a “financial wunderkind,” in the film based on Don DeLillo’s novel of the same name.

The David Cronenberg-directed drama will hit theaters sometime next year!

    @3 Says:

    huh? Water for Elephants is not a success.
    In order for a movie to be successful it has to make at least double its production cost DOMESTICALLY. Studios don’t make much at all from ‘overseas’ sales.
    WFE cost 38 million to make. Not counting the advertising budget. That means that they would have to make 76 million (domestic) to earn the studio back its money.
    As of today, it has earned 54.4 million domestic, and 99.8 worldwide.
    WFE is not a “success”, it is a disappointment. Especially if you consider the cast. Two Academy Award winners, and the guy that’s supposed to have a huge fan base.
    Evidently, most of those fans don’t want to see him as anyone but Edward. Which doesn’t bode well for his future career in film.

    marah Says:

    Not a success domestically? LMAO dear you study finance and filmmaking and do you know the genre of Water for Elephants ? Dark drama where producers won’t expect blockbusters like your Twilight. I surmise you are a fan of one of the cast. Dear, better study next time huh.

  30. 30
    @29 Says:

    The genre is not taken into account when a film is determined to be successful or not. Many dark dramas also make money for the studio.
    Facts are facts. You can’t twist them to suit you.
    And the fact that this film was based on a popular book, and had the cast that it did, and STILL didn’t make its money back is very telling.
    People outside of Twilight fans, just don’t see Rob as a leading man. And because of twilight, many people are sick to death of seeing him everywhere, and won’t pay their hard earned money to watch him on the screen.

  31. 31
    Nine Says:

    the producers of Water For Elephants didn’t expect the same success as a blockbuster, and apparently the movie did better than they expected. So you can’t say it’s a deception. As for Robert, if you don’t like him, why do you comment? He’s an actor that want to make movies, and so far, the reviews of his acting in films other than twilight are pretty good. So let him make his job and when he’d have a few movies behind him, we’ll can judge.

    There’s absolutely nothing “logical” about your argument though. lol. You take a bunch of bad information you got from the internet and try to pass them off as facts. No, a movie does not need to double it’s budget to be a success, yes, the studio does make money from other Countries. Your argument that Genre isn’t taken to account is also rediculous. Leonardo Dicaprio does an action movie – it makes hundreds of millions, he does a drama (Revolutionary Road) – and not so much (Revolutionary Road actually did worse than WFE) The same goes for other actors like Will Smith and Tom Cruise, Drama is not a huge money making genre no matter whose name is in it.

    A lot of delusional fangirl information here. WFE did mediocre business.

    Keep in mind it’s production budget was $38 million, which of course doesn’t include all the money the studio threw in for advertising.

    Then you also have to factor in that the studio does not keep all the profits, they have to split that with the theater owners.

    They also don’t get all of the overseas money either.

    So yes, WFE would have to have done in the $70 millions domestically to be at all profitable.

    Both Reese and Robert can’t draw in the crowds.

    @RobOnly: R/K do not compete vs each other. Kristen does indie films and mostly for the art. indeed her films are not blockbusters (other than Twilight) and she acknowledges that many people didn’t see her indie films. However most of them have recovered or broken even for production costs. Indie films cannot compete because of limited movie theatre distributions. There are big stars with flops incl Angelina, Reese, even Brad and Johnny Depp have flops; but they are artists nonetheless. Kristen is very intelligent and still maturing. All the fuzz overwhelmed her young mind in the past, but as you may notice these days, she has tempered her flipping days. She’s being smart. Rob admires her inner soul, her intelligence and simplicity. No matter what peeps want Robert to be – sophisticated, get-over-Kristen; he is his own person and respectful of Kristen. Do not try to make Rob anything he’s not or he himself says he’s not (philandering…). They may not end up together for a long time, but Rob and Kris are very loving of each other. They have desire to be together as photos show, leave them be.

    Do you children believe that studios get every penny of the box office take?
    If you do, you aren’t just in denial, you are dumber than rocks.
    Studios get approximately ONE HALF of the box office take in the US. They considerably LESS in ‘foreign’ markets. Sometimes as little as 5-10%. that’s why a film’s success is calculated using domestic receipts. They have to take in twice as much domestically to make back their money. Foreign market take will be used to recoup advertising costs, premiere expenses, etc., which are not considered in the budget amount.
    In other words, WFE cannot be considered a box office success. PERIOD. If you enjoyed it, fine, Great. Fantastic! That’s all that really matters, right? But don’t try to make it anything that it is not. When the numbers are staring you in the face, denying them just makes you look stupid.
    here’s a link to Box Office Mojo for you….if they allow it. If not, just go to, and run a search.

    71 is absolutely right. The breakdown is: $38 million budget, plus marketing and advertising raises that to probably around $45 million. So far WFE has grossed $54 million domestically, but you the studio only sees HALF of that, so around $27 million dollars. The other half goes to the theaters. And yes, they do not see much of the foreign gross.

    So the studio put in over $40 million and so far only recouped $27 million.

    It’s not being a hater. It’s just the facts. If you liked the movie and you like the actor, more power to you.

    It wasn’t a success just because you say it was a success. The number don’t lie. With two Oscar winners and the current flavor of the month, the take should have been much higher. It was a huge disappointment to the studio.
    You need to accept that no matter how much you adore him, he is not a box office draw in anything besides twilight. The numbers for his non-Edward roles prove this over and over.

Also Rob made 1 1/2 million for WFE, and gave it all to the Elephant Sanctuary in Tennesse. (Reese&Christoph made the same, this film was not about the money, nor is Cosmopolis, but the desire to be apart a the film(s) Hate him all you want, though you do not know him, and wish for his career to be over…I personally hope for a long and happy one for him, because i feel he is multi-talented.

    You can’t claim something as fact, when the numbers prove it to be wrong. WFE was not a success, no matter how much you want it to be.
    The reality of the situation is that Rob will have a hard time breaking away from Edward. He needs to lay low for a bit to let the general public forget how much they hate all things twilight. Then he can come back and take a stab at real acting. No matter how good the film is now, only his fans will want to see it.
    Orlando Bloom took a break so that people would forget that he was the handsome, hero do-gooder. He has since stated that it was harder than he imagined to change people’s ideas of what type of actor that he should be. He has since done theater and several small indies, which hardly anyone will see, but where he has received wonderful reviews. He fought for, and won the role of a vulgar, foul mouthed rock god named The Stain in Sympathy for Delicious with Mark Ruffalo, and the critics loved him. The Stain was the polar opposite of Will Turner. That is what Rob will have to do. No more simpering, tragic, moody guys, if he’s smart. But he has to disappear for a while if he wants a future in the industry. He seems like a nice guy. So if he’s smart, he will follow Orlando’s example.

    Rob is a nice guy. Shame on those who wished his first of many efforts out of the Twilight franchise to not be a success…he donated his earnings for his movie to a animal charity and put himself out there to be criticised. The first movie since Eclipse was released when all attention are on him and weather he can carry his fan base beyond Twilight. How sad that the Potter fans hate him because Twilight is overshadowing Potter and taking away it’s thunder. Really, the actors don’t hate each other, just their respective fans, unfortunately.

    Robert Pattinson has been eagerly looking to break away from the tween sensation that has made him a star. He valiantly tried to steer the manipulative “Remember Me” but had better success this year with the period drama “Water For Elephants,” with that film quietly climbing to nearly $100 million worldwide. Not bad. His next effort at creating cinema that won’t just appeal to teenage girls and their Moms is David Cronenberg‘s “Cosmopolis.”

    Congrats to the cast from Water For Elephants a beautiful film.

    Rob Says:

    And it is insulting for you to insinuate that Rob should copy Orlando Bloom’s career trajectory. Orlando is seen as Miss Miranda Kerr these days. Ms. Kristen Stewart isn’t so bad, but he should be successful in his own right ten years after Twilight. Of course, the heartthrob status won’t be at the extreme level it is now, but hopefully a Leonardo Dicaprio like career is more in line than a Orlando Bloom, both former heartthrobs. He is getting there and if he keeps on working and fine tuning his craft with able bodied directors and casts, he will be an Oscar winner someday…much more likely than the Harry Potter trio just because he broke the American market with Twilight already. They’ll just flounder around and eventually go back to the UK, then disappear to small indies, soap operas and theater. Not that bad considering Rickman, Thompson and Gambon are respected theater and small TV actors in their own right.

    One more time….
    It DID NOT make 70 million for the studio. That’s what counts as being successful or not. The more you repeat that, the more ridiculous you sound.
    And the industry has said that it was not a success.
    The numbers come from the industry. They don’t lie, no matter how badly you want them to.
    And to the other posters…
    Mr. Miranda Kerr?
    I doubt that an actor who has worked with some of the greatest directors around, and one who is still popular after not being on the big screen for four years is considered to be anyone but Mr. Orlando Bloom. Well, except for a few haters out there who will never forgive him for getting married.
    BTW, Rio is also considered a disappoinment. That was a really bad example.

    I applaud Rob for working hard at evolvoing as an actor. He is already great and will only get better with each role he takes. I loved WFE, Remember Me and though I found The Haunted Airman to be a bit disturbing his acting was great. His performance in Little Ashes was also believable. And of course I loved him in Twilight. I wish him huge success.

    You keep saying the industry says it wasnt a success yet you can not show me one person in the industry who has said so. They must only exist in your head. You may think you are some box office analyst and industry expert but you’re not! I will take their information over yours any day and they agree with me and most other people in the World that WFE was a success! You may not like it but there is no need to lie about it. If you break down every film income like you have done then not many movies are a success then are they? That just goes to show that you do not know what you are talking about and are not the expert you think you are! It makes no sense whatsoever!

    Numbers don’t lie.
    It’s not a little indie that studios use as tax write-offs. It had a fairly substantial budget for the type of movie it was. The studio expected to make money. It expected to capitalize on the popularity of its cast. Rob’s fans went, and a few people who loved the book, but no one else did.
    It has not made money for the studio, therefore it is NOT a success.
    You guys are failing math, aren’t you.

    honest question Says:

    How can you ignore box office numbers?
    I think that is what people are talking about.
    Having a movie do ‘better than expected’ is not saying that it was successful.
    Bottom line = the movie did not make any money for the studio.
    All the talk about percentages is basically correct, except that on average, the studio gets 55% of the domestic take, not 50%. But they still make hardly anything from ‘overseas’ markets.
    If you want industry confirmation, just go to Box Office Mojo.
    At the very bottom of the page that lists the box-office results, there is a note stating this fact.

  116. 116
    @115 Says:

    So by your analysis nearly every movie brought out every year is a failure and makes no money for the studio. I’m sorry but thats just ridiculous! The whole industry would have collapsed a long time ago if that was the case! A hell of a lot of movies dont make anywhere near the 70 million profit wfe has so far. Are they all failures then. No. Of course they make money from international box office. A substantial amount. People in the industry and FOX have been very happy with the box office revenue so far from wfe… making it a success!

    Shaking head Says:

    Can you bring in a quote from a box office analyst or the studio head from Fox who made WFE and quote him that the movie bomb? Just one, not even a dozen. i just need one. Fine the numbers say it all for you, but couldn’t you find even one person who agree with your analysis? Or is it so apparent that people don’t even need to comment it? According to your delusional logic. For the record, box office analysts said the movie performed well above expectations, meaning $ucce$$. YOU are not a box office analyst. YOU obviously know that just looking at the net profit isn’t how it works. Yet you have this weird formula that you took from no where and applied it to the film, and only you claim it is unsuccessful based on this formula you assume is right (give me a source of where you got this formula from?) You don’t know $hit about how the money is distributed between studios, theater owners and overseas distributors. Those are insider information and is confidential. A written contract is pulled out ahead of time outlining the distribution of box office earnings each week, usually the studios get a larger percentage the early weeks, and the later weeks the theater owners. Every movie, the contract and negotiation is different, there is no set numbers and you don’t know when it crosses over. You are ASSUMING that it is 50/50 studio and theater owners, with NO international box office profit (dumb). Rio debut at number one, it is successful. Please tell me your profession. Are you an unemployed uni student majoring in something completely unrelated to film? And your source of information is justjared comments or other gossip site comments? I bet you are digesting what I’m saying now and taking it as fact, just like how you expect us to do the same for your dumb anaylsis, when clearly the numbers show WFE made 70 million profit. The world needs to know who is taking on the expert opinion and going around screaming the movie is not a success based on box office gross and net earnings… it made 70 million profit from $38 million budget for a total of 107 million. So the numbers show that it did NOT lose money. Box office watchers said it performed better than expected, and considering Pattinson the lead from Twilight and two Oscar winners starred in the movie, that is HUGE.

    @120 Says:

    Oh my. I really worry for our school system.
    Using your numbers (which are not accurate BTW)
    Gross domestic = 54.4 million
    Gross worldwide = 107 million
    Net = gross MINUS expenses
    Net profit domestically = 29.92 (after theaters take their cut)
    Plus the 5-10% taken from overseas of appx 53million = 5.3 million profit .
    29.92+5.3 = 35.22 PROFIT
    But it wouldn’t even be that much with the millions spent on advertising. But we will be generous and say that they only spent two million on advertising. Then another million on premiere expenses, etc.
    That leaves just over 32 million
    If the movie cost 38 million to make, how can you claim that it made a profit?

    In order for a movie to be successful it has to make at least double its production cost DOMESTICALLY. Studios don’t make much at all from ‘overseas’ sales.
    WFE cost 38 million to make. Not counting the advertising budget. That means that they would have to make 76 million (domestic) to earn the studio back its money.
    As of today, it has earned 54.4 million domestic, and 99.8 worldwide.

    @121 Says:

    Wow…you’ve really got something to prove dont you!!! I applaud the effort you put in to your sums but it does not make them accurate! You have no idea how much percent they get from overseas or even domestically and even with your ridiculously harsh analysis the movie will most definitely make up the few million it needs to a success in your little formula with dvd sales. It all adds up to the same thing that we have been saying all along…a success! We just got there quicker than you in a more realistic manner by paying attention to the experts!

    We need to go back to school don’t we? Let me see and hope that you reply this time more understandably unless your reading comprehension needs to be reexamined as well: where did you get the information that FOX made 55% from domestic gross for WFE? And they made 5-10% from international gross for WFE? Are you the accountant for Fox studios? Because if you are not, which you most obviously are not because they wouldn’t waste their time badmouthing their own films to gossip readers, you ARE making a lot of serious assumptions and claiming it is FACT. The profit structure with the theaters are much more complicated than that.
    Again, where is your source, or did school not teach you to cite your sources when claiming fact not opinion? It’s much more complicated than just taking 55% and 5-10% from the gross profits, unfortunately for you.

    Let’s take your precious Harry Potter DH 1 for instance. I assume it takes 200 million to make. It earned domestically 295 million. It also earned 659 500 000 million overseas. So ten percent of that is 65 950 000 million and half of 295 million is 147 million. Factoring in some math we get WB only making 13 million in profit even though Potter almost broke the billion dollar threshold and is well known as being one of the most lucrative cash cow for WB. This all does not include DVD sales or the marketing budget. Phew.

    And your precious Lainey Gossip also said that WFE is a success:

    Finally someone is using their brain.
    The studio made a PROFIT of 13 million, IN THE THEATERS, not counting the DVD sales.

    yea Says:

    Except your little formula is skewed since Harry Potter is a cash cow for WB in the box office since it is a SUMMER TENTPOLE. And using your math again, HP 6 lost money in the box office since it took 250 million to make and made less than DH 1 in the box office. AWWW poor Harry Potter. Lucky for Rob, Twilight makes most of its money in domestic sales and has a low production cost. Potter is a losing franchise with weak box office turnout. It’s cast won’t survive the box office game (Perks of Being a Wallflower and Women in Black).

    Another film critic,Lainey Gossip, said it was a success, why haven’t you responded to that? http://laineygossip.comMovies_for_adults_earn_well_in_first_half_of_2011_led_by_strong_opening_for_The_Hangover_Part_2_31ma.aspx?CatID=0&CelID=0

    Don’t forget Potter has a marketing budget of approximately 100 million dollars. The studio incidentally won’t make any money until they get to DVD sales, so Potter won’t even make any money while it is still in theaters!
    And according to WB, while Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire earned a worldwide total of $938.2, Warner Bros has got it down as still losing $167 million (! Funny that Potter is box office poison, more so than WFE.
