While Rob's performance in "New Moon" isn't earning him any nominations at this year's British Academy Film Awards (the British equivalent of the Academy Awards), the BAFTA Twitter account announced today that he would be appearing as a presenter. We're hoping he'll be presenting the Orange Rising Star award considering that is what Kristen is nominated for.
It doesn't look like they'll be sitting next to one another though. A photo of the seating arrangements (see below) for Sunday's event (it airs in the US on BBC America on Sunday at 8p.m. ET and 7:30p.m. PT ) shows Kristen sitting next to Clive Owen and Gabourey Sidibe. Maybe Rob will be her plus one?
Also announced as presenting are Kate Winslet, Guy Pearce, Claire Danes and Dustin Hoffman, Uma Thurman, Clive Owen, Matt Dillon, Noel Clarke, Terry Gilliam, Rupert Everett and Jonathan Rhys Meyers
COPIED AND PASTE
This is what you've been waiting for, Twilighters. You no longer have to wait until the "New Moon" DVD arrives on March 20 -- the Vernal Equinox! -- to catch your first, seven-minute glimpse of "Eclipse." The first trailer for the June 30 release will arrive a week earlier, on Friday, March 12, in front of the Robert Pattinson/Pierce Brosnan-starring family drama "Remember Me."
The word comes straight from Summit Entertainment, via their official "Twilight" Twitter feed. Exciting stuff, no? Hit the jump for the tweet text.
First they tweeted this:
@Twilight The #EclipseTrailer will play with REMEMBER ME in theatres on March 12!
And then this:
@Twilight Stay tuned for more information on where you can see it earlier that week
So like the feed says, stay tuned!
On a scale between 1 and 10, how excited are you for this trailer? What key bits from the book do you hope to catch a glimpse of?
Robert Pattinson’s excited to be filming Bel Ami

In May 2009, Elle Sweden writer Maria Lindholm met with Robert Pattinson in Cannes for an interview for the magazine. Maria taped the interview and has posted snippets of it on You Tube (YEAH!). In this clip Rob talks about some of his future projects, around the 1 minute mark he talks about Bel Ami. The excitement in his voice over the book, script and the project is so evident. He is stoked to film this movie & um we are drooling excited to see it!UPDATE: At the end Rob says “every other actor that reads it is like fuck you I want that” about the script. He follows that comment with a very evil smexy laugh UNF!
Audiences flocked to see Robert Pattinson as a vampire, but will they come to see him as a mortal? The actor has had two previous non-"Twilight" starring roles, the Salvador Dali bio-pic "Little Ashes" and the indie coming-of-age flick "How To Be." Both movies were bombs.
Next month, Pattinson stars in "Remember Me," a romantic drama featuring some high-octane talent both in front and behind the camera. Will this movie find an audience, allowing him to prove that he can be more than a sparkly vampire or will he be forever cursed?
The movie, about a troubled lad reeling from family tragedy who finds love and comfort in the arms of a quirky young lass, boasts an impressive cast aside from Pattinson. Pierce Brosnan plays his inattentive yet well-dressed father. Emilie de Ravin of "Lost" fame sports an American accent to play Robert's love interest. "Remember Me" also boast not one, but two Oscar winners: Chris Cooper and Lena Olin along with a director, Allen Coulter, won has been Emmy-nominated for his work on "Damages" and "The Sopranos."
And, of course, there's Pattinson himself who not only is the movie's star but also its Executive Producer. His performances have always combined brooding intensity with a deft vulnerability. This movie might give him a chance to really showcase these traits.
So will audience want to see Pattinson in a romance than doesn't involve eternal life and blood sucking? Or will they give this movie a pass and wait for "Eclipse" to come out this summer. We'll find out on March 12th when the movie opens.
