    I'm surprised how Pattinson has been able to succeed far past Twilight. I mean just look at how Taylor Lautner's career has gone up in smoke. Just shows that Pattinson actually has talent.

      Really enjoy Corbijn's work. Edgerton makes another fine addition to this otherwise excellent cast.
