Remember Me Loves New York

As in Woody Allen movies, Remember Me is a love letter to New York City. By highlighting the city as another character in the movie, even a jaded and cynical New Yorker would melt at the nostalgic reminders of a city that once was and today, still is, grand and magical. For anyone curious about the NYC landmarks, businesses, etc. found in the movie, the following are some places of interest as a partial guide list.

Strand Book Store - 828 Broadway(at 12th St.)

NYU Silver Center College of Arts and Sciences at 100 Washington Square East (NYU scenes are centered around this building including Washington Square Park across the street)

The Oak Room at the Plaza Hotel:

Eddie's Sweet Shop in Queens, NY

Alice in Wonderland statue in Central Park l_sign.php?id=6416

Pearl Street Diner

The East Village, neighborhood in which Tyler lives

The Upper East Side, neighborhood where Caroline's school is located

The Regis High School substituted for the school written in the script. Their address is 55 East 84th Street and they filmed on the 85th Street side.

Brooklyn Heights Promenade, a landmark near Tyler's mother and stepfather's residential neighborhood

Gandhi Restaurant (interior used for the "I have my desert first" scene)

During Rob's downtime from filming RM, he imbibed at some NYC bars; a couple mentioned here:

Tom & Jerry's (I recommend this one for sure. Great music and chill crowd)

Black & White

*All of this information great NYC information has been compiled and provided by Nauti on the Remember Me IMDB board. We thank her for her wonderful contribution to this blog.

Hollywood & The Remember Me Trailer -- Sound Off!

The Remember Me trailer was released in November last year and went on to rack up a huge amount of viewings all over the Internet during the past few months.

Take that, big budget films!

From occasional stops on the front page of IMDB to the front of Apple's ITunes trailer site, for a small film, Remember Me's trailer seems to have made a big impression. In fact, people are still talking about it all over the web -- from regular movie fans that were happy to see Chris Cooper in a film hitting theaters soon, to fans of Emile de Ravin from Lost, to Robert Pattinson fans that can't wait to see him in something where sparkling is not a requirement.

On Trailer Park and the official Remember Me YouTube accounts alone, the trailer has been watched over 2.4 million times! That doesn't even include every other YouTube version or any other version out there. Let's just say the Remember Me trailer has been quite popular.

Movie trailers on the whole, of course, are big business. Of some 10-billion videos watched online annually, they rank #3 only after news and user-created videos. Many movie buffs and even Hollywood executives think trailers are just as important as the actual movie itself. Trailers (good ones anyway) lure an audience in. With slick editing and just enough star power and storyline, each trailer is an expensive mini-film made to get you into the theater with popcorn and coke in hand when the film opens.

But how can a trailer find and grab an audience by the collar in 2:30? How is a trailer supposed to make you feel? What is the music in a trailer intended to invoke? And how many times have we seen trailers that give the entire plot of a film away without even looking back?

The first trailer shown in a U.S. movie theater was in November 1913, 96 years before we first saw the Remember Me trailer last November. How things have changed over those years... Trailers used to be shown at the end of a film, hence the name "trailer." Of course that practice didn't last long; executives figured out pretty quickly that not everyone (even die hard movie fans) stick around for, or even past, the end credits. Sorry grip guys!

Trailers today are a different breed; bigger, louder, more expensive, an event instead of an afterthought. A trailer is often the very thing that makes your decision to see a movie or not. As written in "A Brief History of the Trailer" on, "Trailers serve as the liaison between an upcoming film and its audience. Whether crude, hand-lettered slides or sophisticated, half-million dollar montages, trailers continue to tantalize audiences with the idea that in Hollywood, there's always something more to look forward to after the movie they paid to see."
But for all the cost and marketing and pimping of trailers, it doesn't mean those little mini-films will get you to spend $10 on an actual ticket to the movie. Big production values and big names in high concept trailers don't necessarily trump content that engages you and makes you feel something; content that makes you want to get into your car or on the train, trudge the distance to a theater and sink comfortably into a seat as the lights go down to watch the story and emotion that the trailer could only hint at.

So as we draw closer to the March 12 opening of Remember Me, we'd like for you to share with us your thoughts on the trailer. What did you think when you first watched it? What was your first reaction? What did the trailer get right or wrong for you? Why do you believe men have said such positive things about the trailer? Why do you think so many people are still discussing the Remember Me trailer 3 months since its release?

Let us know what you think and please, no spoilers!

Here are few comments from all over the Internet to get you started thinking:

"My first through fourth reactions upon seeing the RM trailer were: *press REPLAY*"
“SUPERB!!!!!! Nice trailer. Brosnan and Cooper are two of my favorites. I have never seen Twilight so I guess I should be safe on some accord. Neatly cut trailer, seems to have a good vibe."
"He is actually a good actor, I'm impressed. I've never seen Twilight but heard much about it. This proves me otherwise. I'll look into it. And at this point, I have more respect for him. If you don't see it, you're no blinder than the fan girls that scream Twilight is the best movie ever made."

"WOW.....amazing. I've read the script to Remember Me and it's amazing -- it's funny, sad, happy, confusing, dysfunctional, hilarious, heartbreaking and everything in between!"

"I love the trailer. I know the movie will be wonderful. Can't wait to see."

"a) It's too bad this didn't come out pre-Twilight because now all of the "Rpatz" fans are going to be lining up for it and ruin it for the rest of us.
b) I am a sucker for movies like this and will definitely see it.
c) Have loved Emilie De Ravin since I saw her in Brick.
Decent trailer and with this cast, it could be amazing!"

"I love Chris Cooper and Pierce Brosnan; they are both AMAZING actors so I am sure this will be a great movie. Plus, it will be nice to see Robert Pattinson in a more dynamic and in-depth role vs. the teenage heartthrob he is playing now."

"Yay Chris Cooper! I don't care if Sparkles doesn't sparkle. Mr. Cooper ALWAYS sparkles."
"I love this! Not just because of Pattinson. It looks really heartwarming. It's a feel good movie with a message. Sometimes these are the best movies."

"I've read the script and it’s awesome. And I've seen his previous films...he has talent. Sure, he has a lot more to learn, but I think he has potential."

"Can’t wait for this movie to come out. I think Twilight was just showing the surface of Robert Pattinson’s acting skills. Can’t wait to see him in a role with more depth."

"Other signs that this movie is going to be good:
1 – It has Chris Cooper. He’s always great.
2 – Great songs in the trailer, especially “Asleep” by The Album Leaf (the one that plays about halfway through). That song is just about as dreamy as Robert himself!”

Let's Look Back -- Remember Me Test Screening Mini-Reviews

Remember Me, opening March 12, 2010 is getting closer. As the days tick slowly by, we thought it might be nice to go back and re-visit some of the comments we've collected from the Remember Me test screenings held in the latter part of 2009. Whether you've seen these comments before or you're just now seeing them for the very first time, one thing is pretty clear: The test screenings garnered some overwhelmingly positive results for the film and the actors involved.

These comments were posted at several places all over the net including Twitter, Box Office Mojo, IMDB, etc. Test screeners ran the gamut from Joe public off the street to Rob Pattinson fans and everyone in between. If you've seen these before, enjoy them again. If you haven't, be prepared to be impressed! And by all means, whatever your individual case might be, send these comments on to friends, colleagues and your family-members -- anyone who might be interested in seeing Remember Me when it opens March 12.

"I saw this movie two months ago. It was friggin' intense as fuck, and sad. Pierce Brosnan and Robert Pattinson = A++++."

Saw the first screening of "Remember Me" last night (Rob Pattinson Emilie de Ravin). It was excellent. Well acted, original, a bit long."

"It's very emotionally intense. If it were cut down in anyway, it would take away from the juice of it."

"This movie is NOT a romantic drama. It is not a chick flick."

"I felt it was well shot, the acting was superb, the relationships/chemistry/dynamics were all amazing."

"They were both really good. Everyone was. But Rob and Pierce Brosnan stuck out the most. Their chemistry was good and Rob gets really violent in it. Lots of people left the theater sobbing."

"I had really low expectations for it, but it was incredible. I thought it was just going to be a Rob showcase but it was definitely not. I loved, loved, loved it and really hope it doesn't get written off as just a Twilight fan girl movie. I can't express how amazing it was."

"Loved Remember Me. I teared up. You peeps should watch it."

"Just went to the new Robert Pattinson movie screening. Debo thinks vampires are dreamy. Even when they're really humans."

"Rob showcases his ability to be thoroughly methodical and cover the entire gamut of human emotions and condition in Remember Me. To see Rob be sweet, funny, pained, maligned, and protective to the point of being paternal, are just some of the treasures of this film."

"His acting was honestly great. It’s a far cry from Twilight and you can tell her really tried hard to bring this character to life."

"500 Days of Summer was my favorite movie this year, but Remember Me is right up there next to it. Can't wait to see finished movie in 2010."

"I went to a screening of Remember Me. Actually made me cry, I will recommend it."

"To be really freaking honest, I thought it was going to be unintentionally lolzy, but it was REALLY good. I don't think anyone would be disappointed."

"Big Brother Rob is pretty much to die for. The girl who plays his sister Caroline is a star waiting to happen."

"Tyler is a very complicated and challenging character and I think Rob did great portraying this character. We were able to witness another side of his acting. I am excited for him and can't wait to seehim evolve in his future projects."

Pierce Brosnan on Robert Pattinson & Remember Me

From Barb on the IMDB board --

In his letter dated January 15th, on the home page of his official web site, Pierce writes about Remember Me:

I also shot "Remember Me" with Chris Cooper, Lena Olin, Emilie de Ravin and the dashing Robert Pattinson, during the summer of 2009. We all found ourselves in the heart of Manhattan and Brooklyn surrounded by a couple hundred screaming teenage girls every day. For any young actor to be thrown into the ferocious limelight as Robert has been – must take its toll. He worked very hard and I wish him every success. Robert acquainted himself grandly. "Remember Me" will be in theaters March 12th.

Hollywood Is Watching: Can Robert Pattinson Open A Film?

In terms of Robert Pattinson, Hollywood has one thing on its mind right now and that's money. Can he open a film on his own? Can the name Robert Pattinson deliver derrieres in seats when it counts, March 12-14, 2010?

Remember Me is Pattinson's first film outside the Twilight franchise. While it has a small budget and is technically considered an indie film without the backing of a huge studio, the media, the general movie-going public and Hollywood itself, have all been busy spinning this film as a rather big litmus test for Pattinson's future as an actor and Hollywood's idea of a movie star.

In a little over 14 months, Pattinson has gone from "that guy in Harry Potter" to one of the brightest, fastest, rising young stars we've had in recent memory. His ethereal face graces the covers of countless magazines and he is the topic of so much baseless gossip across the Internet that even Pattinson has most likely lost track of his own self-described "boring" story. The spotlight has been resting squarely on his shoulders since before Twilight opened in November 2008 and today, it shows little evidence of letting up. But Hollywood wants what it wants and right now, what it wants is proof that Robert Pattinson is more than Edward Cullen and that he can put money in pockets. More money, that is.

While Pattinson became the face of the Twilight saga and arguably the breakout star of a franchise that has raked in well over a billion dollars, this is a vital time for his career. And a career does seem to be what he is quietly intent on seeking.

As a writer named Albrian on an Internet movie blog expressed it, "There is a quiet steely determination to succeed. The self deprecating quotes are a smokescreen for an ambitious young man."

The media constantly churns out stories asking if Robert Pattinson is the the new Depp, new James Dean, the new this, the new that. They desperately want him to be the new something, throwing out impossibly high standards and competitions that can never be won. Depp, Pitt, Clooney, and DiCaprio...all the major movie star names you can think of. Pattinson has been held up to the light and compared against them all, but to anyone with a little common sense, it's kind of like pitting a GED against Ph.D. in terms of sheer experience and acting credits. Of course when has the media (or random people on the Internet) ever had common sense?

Pattinson is a great story; charming, sweet, British and handsome with a huge and very loyal fanbase that believes he's talented. Just how talented? With the likes of Chris Cooper, Kristin Scott Thomas, Allen Coulter and Declan Donnellan among others signing on to work with him, it seems pretty certain that his fans have bet on a good horse.

Pattinson appeared on the Hollywood scene almost overnight. With his now recognizable name on everyone's tongue and flowing out of everyone else's pen, his sudden fame makes him a very easy target. And the media is determined to keep talking about "the new guy." One day he's the golden boy and the next he's being taken to task for the kind of fame he never even dreamed for himself. Depending on date and time, Pattinson is talented, he's not, he smells, he doesn't, he's stuck up, he's down to earth, he's hilarious, he's whines too much, he's sweet, he's mean, he's in, he's out, he's up, he's down.

The truth? He's just human, and by all accounts, a pretty decent, gracious and very grateful guy who's got to be overwhelmed by the wishy washy celebrity vortex he's found himself in during the past year.

Then there's Hollywood, and Hollywood is nothing if not impatient. Apparently time and experience is something Hollywood doesn't believe in anymore. "You've only been famous for a short while and you've only acted in a handful of teeny, tiny films few people have ever even seen? Too bad! You're "it" and you're now expected to open a film and open it big or we'll tear you down some more, Robert Pattinson! You must earn your fame young man!"

Sound like the dreams Hollywood is made of?

As the happy man in Pretty Woman says, "Welcome to Hollywood! What's your dream? Everybody comes here; this is Hollywood, land of dreams. Some dreams come true, some don't; but keep on dreamin' - this is Hollywood. Always time to dream, so keep on dreamin."

Of course the media and the public (not to mention random people on the Internet) don't exactly know what Robert Pattinson's dream actually is. All evidence seems to point to Pattinson wanting good career as a working actor where he has the ability to make interesting, even risky choices -- A career that he can be proud of and a career in which the media doesn't compare him to anyone but Robert Pattinson. After all, he never asked for the comparisons in the first place. The guy just took a job.

Only time will tell if Robert Pattinson's dream parallel's Hollywood's dream for him and vice versa.

Stars rise and fall. We live in a celebrity culture that feeds on building people up to tear them down. It's the law of nature in Hollywood and all over the world, really. And like it or not, Remember Me is a test. Hollywood will be watching -- watching to see what happens at the box office opening weekend, watching to see if Robert Pattinson can pull in a wider audience sprinkled with all ages and sexes, watching to see if an audience will accept him in a role that doesn't require white makeup and an annoying love interest named Bella.

That's about the only thing Pattinson can be sure of right now; Hollywood will be watching. Needless to say, with the guy who flatly refused media training and seems to be very much his own man floating around in a big, fat, sea of sameness, Hollywood should be getting a damn good show.

And heck, should the big test falter this time out for Rob, remember...Hollywood loves comeback stories. Comeback stories are what it's built on.

Allen Coulter (Director of Remember Me) Interview

This is a great interview with Allen Coulter who directed Remember me. The interview was for his first feature, Hollywoodland, but it shows the detail and intensity Coulter puts into the directing work he does and should make you even more excited about his second feature opening up March 12, 2010, Remember Me.
