Two fresh clips of "Little Ashes" have been found. Exclusively previewed first by Rotten Tomatoes, the one minute each snippets present a look inside the young life of artist Salvador Dali, filmmaker Luis Bunuel and writer Federico Garcia Lorca. The clips are also give out glimpses of "Twilight" star, Robert Pattinson, being the surrealist painter, Dali.

Set against the backdrop of Fascist Spain in 1922, 18-year-old Dali arrives at university in Madrid. Determined to become a great artist, he soon gets the attention from Residencia de Estudiantes' social elite, poet Lorca and aspiring filmmaker Bunuel. But, their friendship becomes strained as Dali and Lorca get closer to each other. When the two spend the summer at the sea-side village of Cadaques, their friendship becomes something more.

"Little Ashes" takes its title from Salvador Dali's 1927-28 painting Cenicitas. Starring also Javier Beltran as Federico Garcia Lorca and Matthew McNulty as Luis Bunuel, the drama film from director Paul Morrison has been premiered at the 16th annual Raindance film festival in London back in October. It will get its limited U.S. release sometime in 2009.

I'm very excited for this film, it looks brilliant. I'm glad he chose this "controversial" role. I mean, I don't find it controversial, but I'm sure a lot of people do. I've seen a couple of the love scenes on youtube, and they are amazing. Definitely going to be buying this movie. And props to Rob for choosing such a great role. I like Twilight, yes, but I'm not a squealing fan girl. The female teen fans of Rob probably shouldn't see this, as I'm sure they'll just say "ewww" the whole time.

I'm no teen-bopper fanatic, but Rob Pattinson really intrigues me. I really want to see if this guy is as good as the limited clips we've seen show him to be. I hope they release How to Be and especially Little Ashes in the US, and not just in some little art house in NY or LA. I want to see these films!

I haven't seen twilight yet, i love the books. I think Rob is a great actor not a puppet. He does pick roles he thinks will be great in the box office and roles that will also challenge him. I'm sorry...he still needs to make a living and love himself at the end of the day so stop trashing Twilight and ladies get over the stache'. Its all in the role. He's not Edward and he's not Dali either.

Rob is an amazing actor, he really puts himself into his roles and becomes the character, its quite remarkable. This film proves that he is an ARTISTIC actor who is dedicated to the craft of acting and doesn't care about fame, money or "teen" glory. Teen girls will HATE this film, but artistic people will appreciate it. I myself am very excited to see the chemistry between Rob and Javier. If it as good as the chemistry between him and Kristen, then we should be in for a good movie lol. Apparently the sex scenes are very artistically done and not tacky at all. YAY!

Oh, I'm so excited! This IS the type of role Rob needs; not something like Edward, who really isn't that hard to portray (even though Rob did a good job). As for those who think it'll be big at the box office, it doesn't really matter. The point is to make you believe that he's Dali and bring you into that world, and I'm totally convinced just by the clips (especially the second one! WOW, that was fantastic!). Someone said something about the trailer coming out Monday?

I'm really excited to see Rob in this role. I don't know much about Dali but hopefully after seeing this film I will.

Rob looks great in this movie! I really want to see it. Oh yeah, and nobody can complain about Rob having sex scenes with a guy in this movie because he did them BEFORE kissing Kristen Stewart:D

at first all i could see was edward, what with that pale skin as well lol but im interested to see waht he does with this.

Um...sorry I luvvvv Rob!!! but omg him with that little mustache!!! Ewwwww I'm sort of guessing that he signed on to this little deal before Twilight..because yeah I feel sorry for him being in this movie. Hmmm maybe I'm just over reacting, but I don't really think it's going to do that well at the box office...even though Twilight is doing extraordinary!

I'm not a fan of Dali's work so wasn't interested in this movie, but I will say that the first clip where we see Dali was funny and the second piece was beautiful. Between the music and the cinematography, it looks like its an amazing scene. If the rest of the movie has that type of feel, it should do well, even with the help from the Twilight fan base.

Well I thought the preview was very good I cant wait to see it... I think he can do anything in acting staus and he pulled this one off very well

Could I be more excited about this. No. I squeeled like a fan girl. Cant wait for its release in March. Rob's just awesome.

Rob in this film excites me much more than Twilight. This type of quality work is what I want to see him due.

Another quote from someone who saw the film The sex scene is secondarily about sensuality and it is there, but it is a magnificent scene because the sensuality comes second to the acknowledgement that each of the three characters is suffering in their own personal hell. Dali's eyes are filled with tears and he struggles to understand his powerful reaction to what he is witnessing, Margarita is finally getting the man she wants but feels like she is being used, a toy in someone else's love affair, and Lorca hates himself for using a woman he knows loves and respect him to express his love for another.

A quote from someone who saw the film: It begins with a dark cloudy night with Dali and Lorca jumping out of a rowing boat into the ocean. It's so dark they can barely see each other, but then the moon comes out and the whole scene is transformed, both characters look ethereal in the moonlight. The filming follows them as the twist around in the water, it films them from below and above until you can barely tell who's who, in the same way they feel themselves becoming one they become one in the eyes of the audience too. Under the moonlight they share their first kiss, all pretence dropped they are entirely themselves. It is one of the most romantic scenes I have seen. When it cuts back to the scene later in the film there is a powerful feeling of longing for the simple beauty which they shared that night, one which they both know they can never return to.

I'm curious to R-Patz playing this role. He did a beautiful job playing Edward. He's perfect. Unfortunately a friend I know thinks of both of them suck. Whatever.

It's not supposed to be this huge box office hit. Rob wanted to do the part. "I didn't want to get stuck in pretty, public school roles, or I knew I'd end up as some sort of caricature. Playing Dali has been a complete turning point for me. It's the first part I've had that has required really serious thought. I became completely obsessed with Dali during the filming, and I read every biography I could get a hold of. He was the most bizarre, complex man, but in the end I felt I could relate to him. He was basically incredibly shy." That's a quote from him that's listed on IMDB. Have you even read anything about Dali? This man was so eccentric. He dressed outlandishly and his mustache was exactly like that. Playing Dali must have been a challenge and I bet it was a greater one than playing Edward Cullen. I can't wait to see Rob's interpretation of Dali.

OMG that was amazing. I love the way Rob looked at the back of Javier's neck. Very sexy.

Box offices is for money making, Kelly. Don't you think you should see Rob more than just Edward Cullen, find him as a TALENTED actor, please. He looked for interesting scripts not looking for money making movies.

This is more like the quality of film I want Rob to do . Not the clap trap that was twilight. I loved Rob's entrance from the car. Brilliant.

I;ve read some early reviews from a showing in Lodnonand Rob and Javier are extraordinary in the roles of Dali and Lorca. Cant wait to see it.
