Ten years ago, no one would ever expected Robert Pattinson to be a fine actor,let alone a contemporary equivalent to Willem Dafoe. But after a string of well-acted, and better, well-selected endeavors, he’s charmed the pants off critics and audiences alike.
So while we’re two years away from seeing him take flight in The Batman (there’s a great Twitter comment that, paraphrasing, says he’s a terrible vampire…it took him eleven years to turn into a bat) you can get caught up on films like High Life, Good Time, The Rover, and The Lost City of Z and then catch him in Robert Eggers‘ latest nail-biter. Enjoy this first look into The Lighthouse, from A24.
The story of two lighthouse keepers on a remote and mysterious New England island in the 1890s.
From Robert Eggers, acclaimed director of The VVitch, the film stars Willem Dafoe and Robert Pattinson, and is set for release on October 18, 2019.
