Weekly Update #2 (Nov. 26-Dec. 2): Paramore on Consequence of Sound, Robert Pattinson at the 2017 Gotham Awards, Kristen Stewart's LIZZIE to Premiere at Sundance 2018



I decided to try something different with the blog this week and do a wrap-up post for all the events that happened with Paramore, Rob and Kristen from November 26-December 2 (Sunday-Saturday). It's kind of like what some other fansites do, linking back to their own content, but I'm linking to content that I'm a fan of. 

Here's the second installment of our my Weekly Update:

Paramore


Paramore's album After Laughter was featured in Consequence of Sound's Top 50 Albums of 2017

They described the album lineup changes as something that "almost broke up Paramore, but Hayley Williams, Taylor York, and a returning Zac Farro came back stronger than ever to record their most pop-leaning album to date". 

They loved the album because of its "catchy sing-along hooks and ’80s pop production combined for a bright, polished sound that barely conceals the heartbreak and pain in the lyrics underneath". 

This good news helps shadow the disappointment of not having After Laughter nominated for any Grammys in the 2018 awards ceremony. The nominations were announced on November 28. While we were hopeful that we would get to see at least some nods up the band's belt, it was not successful this time. 

I've previously said this on Twitter, but I thought it was a long shot for AFTER LAUGHTER, considering the heavy material, and the more laid-back promo they’re giving this album. If you remember back during the self-titled era, we got to see the band everywhere --- every TV performance, festival, concert, touring several times across the globe. Now we've only gotten three tours and one TV performance. We're lucky to still even have Paramore still rocking! I’m just glad that they now have won one Grammy up their belt. There will be plenty of times for them to get more.

In more positive news, Paramore announced the official lineup for Parahoy! 3: Deep Search. Special guests include: Local Natives; Judah & the Lion; MeWithoutYou; Now,Now; HalfNoise; Mija; and comedians Jordan Rock and Ryan O'Flanagan. 

Hopefully, we'll see "No Friend" from After Laughter live, considering Aaron Weiss of mewithoutYou did spoken word on the album. And HalfNoise is a given, considering that's drummer Zac Farro's side project band.



Robert



Robert has still been a busy bee, promoting his latest film, Good Time, with the Safdie Brothers. First, he was nominated for the Best Male Lead category at the 2018 Spirit Awards! The Safdie Brothers have been nominated for Best Director, as well. 








Robert also attended the 2017 Gotham Awards. He was nominated in the Best Actor category for Good Time, but he lost to James Franco for The Disaster Artist. Good news is that Rob actually met James on the red carpet!

Rob's other film, Damsel, has been announced its premiere at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival. Also, we got to see a first look photo of him and co-star Mia Wasikowska. 


In a break from tradition, Sundance director John Cooper and his team unveiled the entire features roster on Wednesday (November 29) encompassing US and World dramatic and documentaries, Premieres, Documentary Premieres, Midnight, NEXT, Spotlight and Kids. …
PREMIERES
A showcase of world premieres of some of the most highly anticipated narrative films of the coming year. Films that have premiered in this category in recent years include The Big Sick, Call Me By Your Name, Boyhood and Mudbound.
All selections are world premieres and US nationality unless stated otherwise. All synopses provided by the festival.
….
Damsel
David Zellner, Nathan Zellner
Samuel Alabaster, an affluent pioneer, ventures across the American Frontier to marry the love of his life, Penelope. As Samuel, a drunkard named Parson Henry and a miniature horse called Butterscotch traverse the Wild West, their once-simple journey grows treacherous, blurring the lines between hero, villain and damsel.
Cast: Robert Pattinson, Mia Wasikowska, David Zellner, Robert Forster, Nathan Zellner, Joe Billingiere.

In other news, Rob confirmed his next film, Embrace of the Serpent with  director Ciro Guerra


I saw ‘Embrace the Serpent’ that last day it played at the Sunshine in New York and the matinee was packed. I just knew Ciro Guerra’s next film was going to be amazing. I’m going to do ‘Waiting for the Barbarians’ with Mark Rylance,” he teased.


In his next film, Waiting for the Barbarians, Rob's character has been named Colonel Joll, according to IMDBProIt’s under “projects in development and its status is still “optioned”. 



In fun, less-professional but still a public appearance news, Rob attended the Miami Heat vs. New York Knicks basketball game at Madison Square Garden, with Good Time director Josh Safdie on November 29! He had his first experience on the Celebrity Row and made it to the Jumbotron. Pretty cool!

Kristen


Speaking of Sundance, our Sundance Queen Kristen Stewart is going back in 2018 for her latest film, Lizzie, co-starring Chloe Sevigny! Also, check out the hypnotic, first look of Kristen and Chloe as the secret lovers part of the infamous double murder trial. 
U.S. DRAMATIC COMPETITION
Lizzie (Director: Craig William Macneill, Screenwriter: Bryce Kass, Producers: Naomi Despres, Liz Destro)
 — Based on the 1892 murder of Lizzie Borden‘s family in Fall River, MA, this tense psychological thriller lays bare the legend of Lizzie Borden to reveal the much more complex, poignant and truly terrifying woman within, as well as her intimate bond with the family‘s young Irish housemaid, Bridget Sullivan. Cast: Chloë Sevigny, Kristen Stewart, Jamey Sheridan, Fiona Shaw, Kim Dickens, Denis O’Hare.
This makes Lizzie the eighth Sundance premiere Kristen has been apart of since her debut, Speak in 2004. It's clear that she feels very much apart of this lovely, indie community.

Congratulations are in order for Hayley Williams! She was featured in Forbes' 30 Under 30, which acknowledges young talent under the age of 30. At 28 (they got her age wrong at 29), she has been busy in 2017 with the launch of Paramore's latest Top 5 album After Laughter, and the growth of her vegan hair dye brand goodDYEyoung. A major role model across various fields, she is the only Rock act included.
As a teenager, Paramore's big-voiced frontwoman led the rockers to their first multi-platinum record with "Riot!" in 2007. The band has released three more studio albums and in 2015 became the first female-fronted group since 1999 to win the Grammy for Best Rock Song. Known for her brightly-colored locks, Williams launched a semi-permanent hair color company, goodDYEyoung, in 2016.
So so so proud of Hayley on Forbes!! Congrats!! ♥ ♥





Robert



Rob has been go-go-go this week, heavily promoting Good Time with the Safdie Brothers. This week, he attended the Academy Of Motion Picture Arts And Sciences’ 9th Annual Governors Awards. He looked mighty fine in his badass Dior Homme suit!

Rob also attended Variety's Actors on Actors special with his friend, actor Jamie Bell. Yes, friends, Rob and Jamie did an Actors on Actors segment!! I feel like this pairing was well executed; they have done interview-like specials before, like in Interview Magazine back in 2015. So this Actors on Actors special should be something good. Plus, I'm a frequent watcher of the series on YouTube, so you know I'm really excited!! 




Kristen

Kristen Stewart attended the Come Swim premiere in Los Angeles, along with producer David Shapiro. She talked with NY Times about her directorial debut, as well as taking two months off acting (😢😢😢) to write new projects. She also plans to turn Come Swim into a feature film. 

I was making movies before I was watching (a lot) of movies,"she says. "So I knew how significant it was to protect something precious really young. I saw people doing it and it seemed like this honor-bound commitment that everyone shared and there was one person spearheading it. When a movie's really good, there's a singular, very particular perspective that everyone is servicing, and I always just wanted to hold that."

Kristen attended the American Cinematheque event honoring Amy Adams in LA on November 10. It was a small On the Road reunion, considering they were in the 2012 indie movie together. It was cute seeing awesome women supporting each other!







Speaking of supporting women, Kristen also attended the Museum of Modern Art Film Benefit honoring Julianne Moore. She and Moore have a long history of friendship and love, being mother and daughter in the 2014 drama Still Alice. It was lovely seeing Kristen support her "mom" for a special event.
