Finally we get a taste of what Robert Pattinson has been working on with the Safdie Brothers in this twisted, fast-paced crime thriller, Good Time!!
I've seen this trailer twice now (right, you're probably going "Only twice?!") and I can already tell it's going to be a hit. In fact, it kind of reminds me of Rob's 2014 dystopian movie The Rover, with the way he has to find his brother and tags along with new people along the way, thus finding himself too. It's twisted but also very moving and deep. If you haven't seen that movie, go see it, by the way.
But anyway, here's Good Time's synopsis and first trailer below.
Following the mind-bending HEAVEN KNOWS WHAT, celebrated filmmakers Josh and Benny Safdie return to the mean streets of New York City with GOOD TIME, a hypnotic crime thriller that explores with bracing immediacy the tragic sway of family and fate.
After a botched bank robbery lands his younger brother in prison, Constantine “Connie” Nikas (Robert Pattinson) embarks on a twisted odyssey through the city’s underworld in an increasingly desperate — and dangerous — attempt to get his brother Nick (Benny Safdie) out of jail. Over the course of one adrenalized night, Connie finds himself racing against the clock to save his brother and himself, knowing both their lives hang in the balance.
Anchored by a career-defining performance from Robert Pattinson, GOOD TIME is a psychotic symphony of propulsive intensity crafted by two of the most exciting young directors working today. Josh and Benny Safdie’s transcendent vision is an intoxicating portrait of desperation and destruction that will not be soon forgotten.
Good Time will premiere in competition at the Cannes Film Festival on May 25 before opening August 11.
