Well, there's always Eclipse.

While Robert Pattinson fans are excited over that movie's first official trailer, we have some sobering news: movie critics have responded harshly to the actor's first starring role as an actual human being.

Most of the Remember Me reviews are more critical of the script and the story than of the performances by Pattinson and Emilie de Ravin, but the following excerpts can't be what anyone associated with the film wishes to hear:

A small, dense chamber study of unhappy people looking for hope in the darkness, often literally. - Houston Chronicle

I hate the ending. I hate it. I hate it. I hate it. I hate it more than Kim Basinger hates Alec Baldwin. I hate it more than Garfield hates Mondays.  - Wafflemovies.com

In Remember Me love means never having to say you’re sorry, particularly to the audience. - The New York Times

Remember Me represents Robert Pattinson's attempt to prove he can do more than sparkle like a faux vampire, but the case he presents is not convincing. - ReelViews

If Remember Me is remembered for anything at all, other than being yet another Robert Pattinson vehicle, it will be for its over-the-top ending, which ranks high amongst the most shameless jerkers of tears ever unleashed upon lachrymose teens.  - The Toronto Star

There's no shame in exploring tragedy through art. But exploiting it to make your very ordinary movie feel more important? That's another story. - The New York Daily News

Mini-spoiler warning: The movie is set in 2001, soon after 9/11. It sounds like many critics take exception to the film's depiction and possible manipulation of that tragic event in American history.

Remember Me opens today. Will you go see it this weekend? If so, write in and share your views with the THG world.

As Robert Pattinson continues to make the media rounds, his Remember Me co-star Emilie de Ravin is praising the actor at every turn.

Asked in general about the Twilight Saga stud, the Austrlian beauty told E! News:

"He's a lovely guy. Nothing felt unnatural or weird."

Except, perhaps, the atmosphere around the set. The movie was filmed in New York City and Pattinson fans would line the streets, trying to get a look at their favorite star, snapping photos, screaming.

"Crazy is the word," de Ravin said. "It's a little challenging sometimes. We were very accessible to people in Manhattan... You're trying to work out your rehearsal and all these eyes just watching everything you're doing."

Posing with Fans

In Remember Me, Pattinson portrays the rebellious son of a wealthy New Yorker. He falls in love with de Ravin's Ally, the daughter of a Queens cop. It takes place in late 2001, so you can imagine the recent tragedy everyone in that city is facing.

According to de Ravin said, you better bring a box of tissues with you to the theater: "If you don't cry, there's something wrong with you."

And we don't think she's referring to the reaction many women have when they simply see Pattinson.

Spring may be in the air, but Robert Pattinson fans have a far more exciting reason to be glad it's March:

The actor's latest movie, Remember Me, opens in just a few days. Which means one thing: publicity tour!

Pattinson spoke to Matt Lauer yesterday and then signed autographs for fans in New York City. From there, it was on to the movie's Big Apple premiere, followed by a sit-down with the ladies of The View.

First, photos from the former event. They're highlighted by Robert and co-star Emile de Ravin, along with a special appearance by Kristen Stewart...

On The View, meanwhile, Barbara Walters compared Pattinson to James Dean and the crowd went wild.

"Rob and Emilie are gifted actors who really like each other. And the movie reveals them in a whole new way."
Remember Me director, Allen Coulter

Such praise for Robert Pattinson and Emile de Ravin's performance in this upcoming relationship drama has Twilight Saga fans both excited and worried.

Hot Trio

Excited because this is an opportunity to see Pattinson in a new, hot light; worried because on-set rumors hinted at a romance between Robert and Emile that went beyond the script.

We doubt that's true, though, because Pattinson hates vaginas. He also seems committed to Kristen Stewart.

But Rob and Emile are featured in the latest issue of Vogue.

The chemistry between the co-stars is clear, as Pattinson replied to a question about filming Remember Me with:

"It was the most ridiculous experience. You're trying to stay in character and you're trying to walk down the street, but all those people keep reminding you that you're not this character, you're..."

"A show pony," de Ravin interrupted, as the pair burst into laughter.

Robert will soon return to the vampire world in this summer's Eclipse, but will fans look at him the same way after they see him make out with someone not named Bella Swan? You tell us.

His heart may still belong to Kristen Stewart, but Robert Pattinson's words of praise are all about a different actress these days.

That's just part of the job for an actor promoting a new movie, as Pattinson stars in Remember Me, scheduled for a March 12 release.

He'll share both the screen and a few lip locks with Emilie de Ravin, who portrays his character's love interest in the drama. Earlier this week, Robert spoke to Entertainment Tonight about the Lost star.

“I was shooting the end New Moon in Italy and we were going through casting for [Remember Me]. The director said, ‘I think I found this girl I think you’ll find quite interesting,’ and sent me this e-mail with her audition tape.

"My Internet connection was so slow that I could only get the beginning, which was her messing up for about 35 seconds. She was really funny messing up and kind of quite charismatic... I thought she was actually doing the scene and kind of just improvising with it and just making it up.”

How will these two mesh on screen? Very well, based on the photo below. Will you go see Remember Me?

Rumors of a romance between Emilie de Ravin and Robert Pattinson have finally died down.

For awhile, celebrity gossip sites and reporters were buzzing about a possible connection between these two stars as they filmed Remember Me in New York City last year, even though Robert is clearly dating Kristen Stewart.

Now, with the movie set to premiere in March, its cast members are making the media rounds - and de Ravin may have inadvertently sparked new buzz for tabloids to seize on.

In an interview with MTV, the Lost star says she and the Twilight Saga stud got along very well from the outset of shooting:

"I flew to New York to test with Rob and we immediately got along and had instant great chemistry, which is not an easy thing to come by," Emilie said. "Obviously you’re acting, but you want to have that connection with somebody. We had it."

As for her relationship with Pattinson off set, the actress says it was platonic... but still very close:

"It was so great being able to work with someone you immediately get along with and is incredibly talented and is driven to make the film as good as we can. Having someone you can go and talk with about a scene, and it's all very casual and easy, that made filming such a delight."

Before Twilight fans start worrying about what this means, a word of advice: relax. Pattinson and Stewart were recently spotted together and seem very happy.

He can currently been seen as a vampire torn apart by love.

But Robert Pattinson next appears on the big screen as a rebellious young man living in New York City and struggling with a family tragedy.

Sign For Me, Please

In Remember Me, the talented stud muffin plays Tyler, a lost 23-year old that has a strained relationship with his father (Pierce Brosnan). He thinks he'll remain confused and alone forever... until he meets Ally (Emilie de Ravin) via an unusual twist of fate.

Check out the Remember Me trailer now and the official poster for the film below:

During shooting, rumors sprung up that Pattinson and de Ravin were getting along mighty well off-screen... if you know what we mean!

Were these likely created by a bored tabloid culture, desperate to make headlines? Yes. But might we need to go see Remember Me and investigate the flick for signs of a relationship?

Probably. But who are we kidding? We'd see this movie anyway. It does star Robert Pattinson, after all.

Robert Pattinson may or may not be a pussy.

But he certainly isn't about to forget his lines.

Rob and co-star / make-out partner Emilie de Ravin spent some time at a carnival on the set of their new film, Remember Me, shooting on location in New York City on Wednesday, where Rob jotted down some notes to remember his part.

Later, he looks to have won Emilie a stuffed panda! Talk about chemistry!

Just kidding. There's probably nothing going on between them. It's only a movie, not real life. Then again, the same can be said of Twilight and New Moon ...

As Kristen Stewart fans across the planet collectively seethe, Robert Pattinson and Emilie de Ravin film scenes for their new movie, Remember Me, in New York City.

It wasn't just the heart of every Robert Pattinson fan that sunk when they saw photos of him kissing Emilie de Ravin on the set of Remember Me last week.

Kristen Stewart was far from pleased with what she saw, according to OK!.

“She knows screen kisses are part of Rob’s job, but it doesn’t make things easier, seeing sexy photos of him and Emilie in full lip-lock,” says a source.

A pal of Rob’s adds: “Kristen saw a photo of them kissing and flipped out.”

To make matters worse, according to some made up sources witnesses who were on the beach for the scene, Robert and Emilie seemed to enjoy themselves.

“Everyone else was setting up for the next shot, but Rob and Emilie stayed where they were,” says one. “Emilie snuggled with him for at least 10 minutes."

"She was sitting with part of her body pressed up under his arm and they were making each other laugh. You can tell it’s more than a work relationship.”

How exactly this person can tell that was not explained.

The co-stars have been hanging out away from the Remember Me set as well. On June 19, they hit the Soho House and spent time in a private room.

Three days earlier, they were spotted at Gemma, a restaurant at The Bowery Hotel. Here's a hilarious, anonymous account of that supposed date:

“At one point Emilie took Robert’s Ray-Bans and was playfully wearing them before putting them back in his shirt pocket - it was very flirty ... Rob was so sweet and attentive; if I didn’t know better, I would think Emilie was his girlfriend!”

Whether or not Robert and Kristen are obsessed with each other, the incident has “made Kristen nervous and more determined to visit him in New York," as it’s clear Rob and Emilie "have a lot of movie chemistry." As for real life? All bets are off.

Who has better chemistry with Robert Pattinson?

Emilie de Ravin, welcome to the doghouse of 12 million 'tweens.

Just who the heck do you think you are, flashing that cute smile, dangling that gorgeous hair and flaunting those long legs in those impossibly short shorts?

Pattinson, Lautner and Stewart

Pressing that perfect body up against Robert Pattinson, the primary love interest of hordes of teenage girls across America, Europe and the world?

Emilie De Ravin, shame on you ...

Okay, so Emilie and Robert are merely shooting scenes for their new movie, Remember Me. But can you honestly deny the steaminess of this photo? No you can not.

She's just doing her job by making out with Robert Pattinson, but that is not likely to get Emilie removed from the hit lists of adolescent girls everywhere.

Especially not after reports that Emile de Ravin and Camilla Belle doubled up for a date with R-Pattz the other night. Who says sharing a guy can't work?

Fans can hold out hope that Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart will one day be together, but for now, at work anyway, he's all Emilie's. More photos ...
