It's a bit of good news/bad news for Italian Robsten fans. The good news: the epic conclusion to the vampire story of our time, "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn -- Part 2" will make its world premiere at the Rome Film Festival. The bad news? Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart won't be there. That red carpet just shed a single tear. But is this a sign the 'Breaking Dawn -- Part 2' press jaunt will have significantly less participation by its two leads as they work their relationship out? While the studio has insisted plans will go forth as planned, one wonders...

Anyway, the festival's Alice In The City sidebar unveiled their youth-oriented lineup ahead of the official festival slate which will come on Wednesday. The programming mostly includes a foreign film-heavy list as you might expect, but Disney will also be using the fest for the international premiere of their video game movie "Wreck-It-Ralph." Meanwhile, Warner Bros. will be showing off footage from what they hope will be their own "Twilight"-esque franchise, "Beautiful Creatures."

These movies join the previously announced "Bullet To The Head" in making their way to Rome with a number of high-profile (and longshot) titles rumored including: "Django Unchained," "Playing For Keeps," Gus Van Sant's "Promised Land," Tom Hooper's "Les Miserables" and more. We'll find out soon. The Rome Film Festival runs from November 9-17. [THR]

    I see you try to make a big deal out this. Just a reminders, last time Nikki & Jackson were sent o Rome FF, not the main cast. Rob & Kristen have their own single-promo trip and 3 together-promo trips with Taylor and Bill, along with junket and everything...I think that's load of work.

    I personally want to know what films are going to be at film festivals, so please continue, Twilight fans be damned.

    Rob and Kristen are going to the BERLIN PREMIERE that day, not that they'd go to this film festival anyway. What a ridiculous article. Stop trying to make something out of nothing.

    Rob and Kristen haven't gone to this festival since the first Twilight in 2008. Other cast members go to this one. There is nothing new about this.

    Well if you look a the promo tours and who's attending you will see that rob is coming to Australia (eeee!!!!!! : D) and Kristen is going to japa. They aren't promoting together except in Los Angeles

    Why is Indiewire trying to make out this is a sign that's something's wrong. Do you really expect Pattinson and Stewart to be everywhere at the same time?

    Douches.

    Um, I read on Deadline that these two are going to making the rounds and premiers in the United States...not really a big deal if they miss the Rome Film Festival...

    They started going down this route months ago Jake. Shame, I used to love this site. Try Ropes of Silicon, Awards Daily, Deadline and Variety for the hardstuff. Jagernauth is a sell out.

  • nah | October 8, 2012 3:32 PM

    Nah, nowhere as good. It's clear you're just a Twihard fan that's a bit butthurt. Everyone covered the fact that this film will be in Rome.

  • Jake | October 8, 2012 3:25 PM

    Thanks, those are already much better sites. I'm done with The Playlist.

    Because the leads usually attend the world premiere of their movies and Twilight is a 3.5 billion dollar industry whether you like it or not.

    Why the hell is and Indiewire site reporting this garbage? I thought I stumbled upon Perez Hilton for a second.
