After two box office flops, Hollywood insiders are beginning to lose faith in Rob’s ability to carry a huge movie. They’re even calling him ‘RIP-Patz’! Do YOU think he’s in trouble professionally?
Rob, 26, has not been performing at the box office as well as expected, Hollywood insiders tell the Daily Mail.
“In the UK, Bel Ami underperformed but in America, it’s been a commercial catastrophe,” their source said. “‘Magnolia Pictures simultaneously released it on Video on Demand but they were hopeful that the film would take off in big cities and get a nationwide cinema release. Yet it has made just over $72,000 which is staggeringly low, little more than one screen’s average for the Twilight movies. Hollywood is taking notice that outside the Twilight movies, Pattinson has the bankability of Greece. Breaking Dawn: Part 2 will be huge when it is released in November, but outside Twilight, it’s just not happening for Robert. Pattinson is finding out that LA can be a cruel town. Increasingly Rob is being referred to as RIP-Patz instead of his nickname R-Patz!”
Do YOU think Rob will have a tough time continuing to get work, HollywoodLifers?
