Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Brad Pitt to be in Cannes 2012
This morning, the official 2012 Cannes Film Festival Program was announced in Paris.
The news that created most excitement with the general public was probably that "Twilight" and real-life couple Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart will attend the festival.
The couple won't appear together in one movie, however. Pattinson is starring in David Cronenberg's "Cosmopolis", while Stewart is part of the cast on "On the Road" by Walter Salles.
Of course, the next big question is: at what date will Pattinson and Stewart be in Cannes? Unfortunately, that won't be known until the festival schedule is published - and that may take a few more weeks!
What is already known: There will be a public red carpet ceremony where Pattinson and Stewart appear. However, the screening of their movies won't be open to the public.
In "Cosmopolis", Pattinson plays a 28-year-old billionaire asset manager, riding across Manhattan in a stretch limo in order to get a haircut, whose day devolves into a odyssey with a cast of characters that start to tear his world apart.
And the best: The trailer for the movie is already available! See below
"On The Road" features Kristen Stewart in the role of Marylou in a movie based on Jack Kerouac's famous early-60s novel that defined the "beat generation". Stewarts co-stars include Sam Riley, Kirsten Dunst, Viggo Mortensen and Steve Buscemi.
Again, trailer available below.
