The Lighthouse help you prepare for lockdown life? ” data-reactid=”18″>Total Film: Did your experience on The Lighthouse help you prepare for lockdown life? 

Pattinson: [laughs] I mean, the thing is, on every single movie, there’s so much time just pacing around hotel rooms. I’m definitely quite well trained for it.

Incredibly mysterious. It was totally under the radar. I got a call saying, “Do you want to meet with Chris in three days for something?” I had no information about anything. I went around to Chris’ house, and we had a lovely chat. I kept sort of wondering… is this about a project? [laughs] It must have gone for about three hours without a single mention of why we were doing the meeting. And then at the end, he said, “So, I’ve been working on this thing. Would you like to read it?” I went, “Yes! Yes! I want to read it now!” [laughs] I didn’t even know what it was called. I just thought it was phenomenal. I didn’t even know what character I was reading for [laughs].

There’s only about 280 VFX shots, which is absolutely nothing. And so when we were shooting it, the scope of some of the stunt and action sequences is so ridiculous. It’s perfect for an actor, because you don’t really have to act. [laughs] There’s this fun thing that Chris does as well where there’s an enormous amount of organisation to everything, but then when we’re shooting it, you still sort of shoot it like a run-and-gun indie. The pace of the shooting is so quick that it feels quite wild when you’re doing it.

The Batman during the first day on Tenet?” data-reactid=”28″>Is it true you found out you landed The Batman during the first day on Tenet?

The first day, yeah. The morning of the first day. It was kind of insane. It was a very, very intense weekend. That was a crazy way to start Chris’ film. [laughs] I think I was doing the screen test, as well, on the Saturday before I started.
