Robert Pattinson looks like a completely different person in the Good Time trailer.
Actors who break into the business early tend to go out of their way to reinvent themselves. Daniel Radcliffe has been doing a great job with his unique choices in roles, Kristen Stewart has been cementing herself as one of the best actors currently in the game by taking on a wide array of characters, and now Robert Pattinson (Twilight, Harry Potter) seems like he’s trying to put distance between himself and his teen idol status.
Pattinson’s latest film, Good Time, recently premiered at the Cannes Film Festival. Many are saying that it may be the role to make that departure happen. Pattinson portrays Connie Nikas, a bank robber on the run. The trailer gives us a glimpse at what to expect, with Pattinson racing against time to help his brother out of a bad situation… So like, literally on the run.
If I didn’t go into the trailer expecting Robert Pattinson, I may not have recognized him. Sure, he’s notoriously scruffy in his spare time, but we see him looking straight up grizzled and desperate in this newly released footage. Robert Pattinson officially is officially looking nothing like we’ve seen him before. All of this talk of Robert Pattinson’s looks almost distracted me enough to forget mentioning his extremely on point American accent.

Pattinson made his debuted in mainstream Hollywood as Cedric Diggory in 2005’s Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. He was merely a brisk 19-years-old at the time. As you may know by now, he went on to spearhead the Twilight franchise as the vampire we all wanted, Edward Cullen, starring opposite Kristen Stewart. Rumors have recently been afloat that the franchise may be rebooted for a two part finale.
While he’s continued work on romantic films like 2010’s Remember Me and 2011’s Water for Elephants, he has also branched out into drama (2012’s Cosmopolis) and the action movies (2016’s The Lost City of Z).
You can look for Good Time in theaters this summer on August 11.
