Robert Pattinson Replaces Fangs With Unrequited Love in Remember Me

Summit Entertainment might want to consider re-cutting this one. For two thirds of the audience, Robert Pattinson is enough of a draw for a movie. For the rest of us, hearing him quote Ghandi in the first 10 seconds of the trailer is enough to never speak of Remember Me again. In fairness, this seems like Pattinson’s attempt to step away from the tween-heartthrob corner and lay the ground for a post-Twilight career. While it looks like an entirely pleasant romance, and he has ditched that pale glimmer, this movie doesn’t seem like that big step he needed to leave his “human mumble” status behind.

Following the age old formula of broken families and forbidden love, Remember Me follows the story of a “rebellious young man in New York City” suffering from a strained relationship with his father (Pierce Brosnan) and an incurable crush on a girl (Emilie de Ravin) family history just won’t let him have. You know, kind of like in that other movie he’s in, where he can’t be with Kristen Stewart because he’s a vampire and she’s not, but they are in love. Yeah…

Remember Me opens March 12, 2010.
