Say what you will about Robert Pattinson (Twilight) but the actor is taking his role in director David Cronenberg’s Cosmopolis to heart. During a recent interview with French entertainment magazine, Premiere, Pattinson offered to do a photoshoot that would recreate scenes from some of Cronenberg’s most memorable films. The 13 hour shoot featured Pattinson paying an homage to Scanners, Dead Ringers and Videodrome. Any Cronenberg fan is going to want to check this gallery out, but fans and critics of Pattinson alike should be impressed with his commitment to his director.
Cosmopolis, also starring Jay Baruchel, Samantha Morton, Paul Giamatti and Kevin Durand, will premiere at the Cannes Film Festival which runs from May 16th to the 27th. Check out our continuing coverage here and hit the jump to check out the photoshoot.
To the surprise of no one, Adam Chitwood, Dave Trumbore, and I gave The Avengers our full attention in the latest episode of Collider’s new podcast, The Collision. We talked about the film, its record-breaking opening weekend, what it could mean for future Marvel movies, why Marvel needs to bring back Joss Whedon (provided he wants the gig), and the film’s epilogue (we put that at the end of the podcast to avoid spoiling it for people who haven’t seen the movie yet). Finally, we finished up with our recommendations, and you can check out trailers for those recommendations after the jump.

Also, we are now on iTunes, and while it’s still not where we want it to be, we’re working on it and I thank everyone who helped us out. Also, I’m in the process of looking for a new Skype recording program and a good mixing program for PC. As always, please sound off in the comments section on how we can improve the show.
