"The Haunted Airman" premieres on DVD on Tuesday, a release date that has taken even RPattz's most loyal fans (who've scrambled to see such little-known flicks as "How to Be" and "Little Ashes") by surprise. It has had little to no publicity on any of Rob's fan sites, and there is little written about the film online.
Considering that even his not-made films are followed with a fervor, the big question is a simple one: Where did this "lost" Robert Pattinson movie come from? The answer may be as spooky as the ghost story itself.
Filmed five years ago, "The Haunted Airman" was one of Pattinson's first paid gigs as an actor and was shot in the U.K. as "The Haunting of Toby Jugg." The 68-minute movie aired on BBC television in October of 2006 — two years before "Twilight" would make Pattinson a household name. Cast in the title role, RPattz plays a disabled WWII soldier.
Although the release (and the film's artwork) is undoubtedly aimed at Rob's enormous "Twilight" fanbase, the movie features a much-younger-looking Pattinson. MTV
Order the DVD at Amazon. If you're a real RPatzz fan, I hope you won't miss out on this one. Featuring a 19-year-old Rob, is there anymore sweeter that that? As Rob would say "Yummay!"
