This is an OTP, non Rob related but important to us.
Last week was full of ups and downs for the people in Boston and for the world as we watch terror unfold. Bombs were set off at one of the most celebrated events in Boston, The Boston Marathon. Sadly, the last mile had been dedicated to the 26 victims in Newtown “26 miles for 26 victims,” but it was at this marker that terrorist attacked, tainting the touching memorial. Three lives were lost, the youngest being 8 year old Martin Richard along with Lingzi Lu and Krystle Cambell.
Thursday brought on more senseless violence and loss as MIT security guard Sean Collier was gunned down in his police cruiser by the same men who set off the bombs in the marathon.
Thankfully, their reign of terror came to a end late Friday afternoon as the last of the bombers was apprehended. We won’t publish their names because they do not deserve to be remembered. Let us remember the people that lost their lives, the heroes of the Boston Police and the many people injured during Monday morning.
Robert Pattinson’s Map to the Stars is being shopped at Cannes this year so what better way to celebrare than by checking out some photos of him promoting Cosmopolis last year. France TV has some behind the scenes pics from Cannes 2012.

David Cronwnberg will be in Cannes to shop Map to the Stars for inherits too al distributors and we already have a look at the poster promoting the film plus the synopsis via the North American distributor Entertainment One.
Led by the loathsome yet funny and touching child-star Benjie, we witness the convoluted world of shallow, selfish celebrities and their minions, all of whom are about to be manipulated and destroyed by the young woman who literally represents the fruit of their twisted machinations, Agatha, Benjie’s tormented, apparently psychotic sister. As much as it is a sharp, comic look at a vacant and corrupt world, MAPS TO THE STARS is also a haunting ghost story.
Robert Pattinson has three new co-stars for the next David Cronenberg film: Map to the Stars. The Hollywood Reporter has the details:
Mia Wasikowska, Olivia Williams and Evan Bird have joined the cast of David Cronenberg’s thriller Maps to the Stars ahead of a July shoot in Toronto and Los Angeles.
Newcomer Bird will play a troubled, drug-addicted child star, while Williams will play his manipulative mother, and Wasikowska his disfigured, schizophrenic, fame-obsessed sister.
