Robert Pattinson's 'Ashes,' Kristen Stewart's 'Adventureland' to open same day!
Which movie will you go see first? I think I can guess.
But this really is movie-marketing crossover genius. Now the "Twilight" stars can promote both their new films AND their new joint movie, "New Moon," which they will be shooting.
Ladies and gents, we have a win-win-win situation.
Inside word is there may be only an East Coast "Ashes" premiere, in New York, due to Pattinson's sked.
The "Ashes" press day will definitely be in New York, but no date has been set yet, according to a publicist.
And "Ashes" is also being set to show at the EFM in Berlin by its new international distributor, Regent Worldwide.
However, no talent will be there.
Sorry, Berlin Robert Pattinson fans.
According to Mark Reinhart, Regent's general manager and executive vice president of distribution and acquisition, " 'Little Ashes' story, beauty and the amazing chemistry between BeltrÃ¡n, Pattinson and McNulty make for an impressive trio that will touch the hearts of audiences around the world."
Keep reading for more pix and the film's official synopsis:
In the midst of the repression and political unrest of pre-Spanish Civil War, eccentric artist Salvador DalÃ and renowned poet and revolutionary Federico GarcÃa Lorca find their artistic and sexual freedom. The two form a bond challenged by their fierce ambitions, their friends, the struggle between a love for Spain and a love for each other.
In 1922, Madrid is wavering on the edge of change as traditional values
are challenged by the dangerous new influences of jazz, Freud and the
avant-garde. Salvador DalÃ arrives at university at the age of 18,
determined to become a great artist.
His bizarre blend of shyness and
rampant exhibitionism attracts the attention of two of the university's
social elite -- Federico GarcÃa Lorca and Luis BuÃ±uel. Salvador is
absorbed into their decadent group and for a time Salvador, Luis and
Federico become a formidable trio, the most ultra-modern group in
However, as time passes, Salvador feels an increasingly strong
pull toward the charismatic Federico -- who is oblivious to the
attention he is getting from his beautiful writer friend, Magdalena.
Finally, in the face of his friends' preoccupations -- and Federico's
growing renown as a poet -- Luis sets off for Paris in search of his own
artistic success. Federico and Salvador spend the holiday in the
seaside town of CadaquÃ©s.
Both the idyllic surroundings and the warmth of the DalÃ family sweep Federico off his feet. Salvador and he draw closer, sharing their deepest beliefs, inspirations and secrets, convinced that they have found a kind of friendship undreamt of by others. It is more than a meeting of the minds; it is a fusion of souls.
