Website Update

Hey all,

I think it’s about time I officially come on here to tell you where I’ve been for the past few months. Real life has finally taken a toll on me, and I can’t devote the kind of time this website needs. Kelsey and Nicole have been doing an amazing job at keeping Strictly Robsten updated since I’ve been gone, and I am so thankful for that; however, they both have lives to attend to as well, and Robsten news seems to have become a back-burner for all of us.

My professional career has finally taken off. I am currently a Digital Manager at an agency that manages the social media accounts for big theatrical campaigns from Lionsgate, Warner Bros, Paramount, and more. Basically, I’m doing exactly what I was doing on here, just for other “fandoms.” Robsten will always be my first, favorite, and only fandom, so no need to worry that I’ve left. ;)

Please bare with us as we attempt to keep this website updated. I will try to pop in every now and then to help out or share with you guys something great I heard along the pipeline.

Hope this update finds you well. Love all of you!

Love,

M

Total Film is Hosting a Google Hangout w/ Rob & Guy on Aug 6th

Total Film is hosting a Google Hangout with the cast of The Rover … aka ROBERT PATTINSON and Guy Pearce! They are taking any and all questions! Submit them in the comments section here.

We’re rather excited to announce that we’ll be hosting a Google Hangout with the stars of sci-fi drama The Rover, Msrs Robert Pattinson and Guy Pearce.

Directed by Animal Kingdom’s David Michod, The Rover is a gripping tale of two men forced together to survive in a dystopian Australian outback. Tense, terse and sparse, it’s a serious departure for Pattinson and acts as an acting tour de force for Pearce.

We’re hosting a live Google Hangout with them both Wednesday 6 August at 2pm (9am ET) for a 20 minute chat. We want YOUR questions to ask the cast. To be in with a chance of chatting to them direct, we need you to:

1. Follow the Total Film Google+ page (if you have a Gmail or YouTube account, you also have a Google+ account).

2. Say you’ll be watching on the Google Hangout itself.

3. Submit your question in the comments section of the Google Hangout – and then we’ll pick a lucky few on Monday 4 August.

The livestream will be in the video below:

The Rover is in UK cinemas 15 August 2014.

Kristen Talks Equals at Tokyo Press Conference

Equals218

TOKYO – “Twilight” star Kristen Stewart and “X-Men” actor Nicholas Hoult appeared in Tokyo ahead of production on indie sci-fi drama “Equals” to talk up the challenges of their latest roles.

Hot indie director Drake Doremus (“Breathe In”) and producers Michael Pruss and Ann Ruark were also on hand to field questions Saturday at a Tokyo hotel.

Based on a script by Nathan Parker, “Equals” is set in a near future in which human emotions, from love to envy and hatred, have been eliminated. The resulting humans, called Equals, are carrying on peacefully, when a disease called SOS (Switch On Syndrome) begins to free dangerous feelings — and the afflicted ones are exiled from society. After the hero, Silas (Hoult), is infected he becomes close to Nia (Stewart), who is also able to feel emotions, while maintaining a safely unemotional exterior.  Thoughts of love and escape follow.

Queried about his own desire to live in an emotionless world, Hoult said: “That obviously would be the easy way out, but no, I like to feel everything, take the highs and the lows.”

“I’m definitely not afraid of ‘feels.’ My life revolves around it actually,” Stewart said. “Finding the balance between the head and the heart is important but I’ve always been very driven by the gut. Every thought or articulated emotion starts in shapes and colors and putting your finger on that is cool, but it’s not necessary.”

Doremus explained that the world he created with Parker has a positive side. “There’s a beauty and poetry to this society,” Doremus said. “Despite what they left out, a lot of things they did right and that’s important to us.”

“The story has been compared to ‘1984,’ but it’s not that at all,” producer Ann Ruark said. “It’s a love story –it’s not dystopian, it’s Utopian.”

Thus the decision to shoot in Japan, whose minimal architecture, Ruark explains, “expresses that Utopian vision.”

“It’s sexy — That’s all you need to know, really,” said Pruss when quizzed about the wardrobe.

“Equals” will shoot from August 4 to 28 in Japan and then move to Singapore for another three weeks.

Indian Paintbrush, Route One Films and Scott Free Productions are producing, with sci-fi maestro Ridley Scott also serving as producer. “Equals” is financed by UTA Independent Film Group, which also has North American rights. Release is set for 2015.
