Robert Pattinson Is Barely Recognizable in 'Good Time' Trailer

The official trailer for Robert Pattinson‘s upcoming movie Good Time has been released and it features him going under a transformation that makes him barely recognizable!

The movie premiered at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival earlier this year and also stars Jennifer Jason Leigh and Barkhad Abdi. The film was directed by Josh and Benny Safdie, the latter of whom also stars in the film.

Here is the synopsis: After a botched bank robbery lands his younger brother in prison, Constantine “Connie” Nikas (Pattinson) embarks on a twisted odyssey through the city’s underworld in an increasingly desperate—and dangerous—attempt to get his brother Nick (Safdie) out of jail. Over the course of one adrenalized night, Connie finds himself on a mad descent into violence and mayhem as he races against the clock to save his brother and himself, knowing their lives hang in the balance.

Good Time hits theaters on August 11.

Barkhad Abdi is Broke - 'Captain Phillips' Oscar Nominee Reveals Money Issues

Barkhad Abdi, the Oscar-nominated actor from Captain Phillips, has revealed that he is broke despite being in the running for the gold this evening.

The 28-year-old actor earned $65,000 for his performance in the film, but that was two years ago and he has not acted in a movie since then. After wrapping his work on Captain Phillips, Barkhad went to work at his brother’s mobile phone store in Minneapolis, but he quit when the movie was released.

“How I thought about it was, like, When the movie came out, reviews either gonna be good or bad,” he told the New Yorker. “Either way, I cannot be working here.”

Barkhad just recently won the BAFTA for Best Supporting Actor and he is currently reading scripts to find his next movie role. We can’t wait to see him in another film after his amazing performance in Captain Phillips!
