The straight-to-DVD documentary takes a look into the world of the 'Twilight Saga' hunk following him from a young schoolboy to be one of the world's most sought-after young actors.
Having created a phenomenon after appearing as Edward Cullen in 2008's "Twilight", Robert Pattinson is getting a biographical documentary of his own. "Robsessed", so called the straight-to-DVD doc, has been picked up by Revolver Entertainment and will be released in the U.S. and U.K. in November to coincide with the release of "The Twilight Saga's New Moon".
The documentary offers what is promised to be "an all-access guide to this world's biggest, hottest new star". It will provide an inside look into the world of the 23-year-old, tracing his path from a young schoolboy to his early modeling and acting jobs, all the way through to landing his "Twilight Saga" role.
"Teenagers just can't get enough of Robert Pattinson and this broadcast quality biography is guaranteed to deliver whether on TV or home entertainment," Revolver's chief executive Justin Marciano stated when talking about the snapping of the rights, as quoted by Screen Daily.
A fan wrote on Amazon's customer reviews for the doc, "The trailer is fab and he looks so gorgeous, the interviews look great I can't wait to see the whole thing. He is the best actor ever AND an amazing singer!" Another one noted, "This DVD states that it reveals all about Rob's early days - his bullying in school, his first kiss, his modeling and through to his rise as international star."
The DVD won't be made available in stores until November 10, but it has reached Amazon's #6 rank in the Movies and TV bestseller list for a biography, besting Michael Jackson's "Michael Jackson: Life of a Superstar". Fans can start pre-ordering at Amazon.com.
In anticipation to the release of "Robsessed", AceShowbiz in association with Revolver Entertainment is holding a sweepstakes. Entrants should register themselves on the Contest Page before November 12 to be eligible. Five winners who will each get the DVD as the prize will be randomly selected at the end of the contest.
