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.
