Some actors do everything in their power to not be placed in an acting box. Robert Pattinson is one of those actors. Many fans became aware of the British actor when he was cast as Edward Cullen in the Twilight saga. He could have easily fallen into the trap of only taking on teen vampire roles, but Pattinson probably said “not on my watch,” and took on as many different projects as possible.

Robert Pattinson has become an actor who consistently challenges himself, showcases his acting talents, and proves that he won’t become a boring actor. Amazon Prime, Netflix, Hulu, HBO Max, and other streaming services provide enough Pattinson films to keep his fans and those who want to see more from the actor busy.

Here are a few of the engaging and entertaining Robert Pattinson films that you can currently stream.

Robert Pattinson as Cedric In Harry Potter

Harry Potter And The Goblet Of Fire - HBO Max

Hufflepuff Cedric Diggory (Robert Pattinson) is selected, but then the Goblet also picks Harry Potter (Daniel Radcliffe). Cedric and Harry must compete along with students from two other schools. Each student must complete a series of tasks to win the prized trophy.

Why Robert Pattinson Fans Will Like It: Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire was one of Robert Pattinson’s first high profile roles. In order for the film to strike the right chord with audiences, Pattinson had to make the viewers care about a character they just met. He did that and more, making fans become invested in Cedric.

Robert Pattinson in The Lighthouse

The Lighthouse - Amazon Prime Video

The Lighthouse is about two men who try not to go insane while working together at a remote lighthouse. They don’t quite succeed, but they try.

Why Robert Pattinson Fans Will Like It: The film really is like a two-man play, so it’s a great movie to showcase Willem Dafoe and Robert Pattinson’s acting abilities. Dafoe gets to give Shakespearean style speeches, while Pattinson’s work comes mainly from his facial expressions, body language, few speeches, and movements. There is a lot to unpack with The Lighthouse, but for those just wanting a different film experience, the movie offers plenty to observe, analyze, and enjoy.

Why Robert Pattinson Fans Will Like It: Damsel is a film I stumbled upon at a local film festival. I came into the movie only having seen a trailer and with no prior knowledge of the movie. I was immediately impressed by Pattinson’s flair for comedy and how great he embodied this character. I also loved how Damsel took the concept of a damsel in distress and tossed it out the window. I can’t say much else about the film, because half the fun of it is going into it with no expectations or knowledge of what will happen.

The film is really Hunnam’s film, and all the other characters play second to his story.

The Lost City of Z is a good film to watch if you enjoy historical dramas.

Why Robert Pattinson Fans Will Like It: Robert Pattinson plays a limousine driver who is also a struggling actor and screenwriter.

Robert Pattinson in Cosmopolis

Cosmopolis - Amazon Prime Video

Cosmopolis in its basic form is about a man traveling in a limo to get his hair cut, but his journey is delayed due to the visit of the United States President. On his journey, he encounters a variety of people and he discusses with them the meaning of life, wealth, ambition, happiness, and other topics.

Why Robert Pattinson Fans Will Like It: Cosmopolis is a movie that relies on dialogue to really drive home the message of the film. Cosmopolis is one of those movies that feels not based in reality and more inside the head of the protagonist. Pattinson plays a character mainly void of emotions but that fits with the style of Cosmopolis, and that’s partly what makes this performance fascinating. We already know that Robert Pattinson is capable of showcasing many different emotions, but for this film, he must make himself as robotic as possible, yet make viewers understand the complexity of this character.

Why Robert Pattinson Fans Will Like It: Robert Pattinson plays gentle, kind, and sincere Jacob in Water for Elephants. His tender heart makes him easy to like and root for.

Good Time is a Safdie brothers movie that stars Benny Safdie and Robert Pattinson. Pattinson plays a bank robber who is desperate to free his mentally disabled brother (played by Benny Safdie) from prison. His quest to free his brother leads to a night full of crime and missteps.

Why Robert Pattinson Fans Will Like It: The Safdie brothers are very skilled at taking you on a non-stop thrill ride. With Good Time, audiences are started on a level 70 of the anxiety scale, and it just increases from there, though it takes some dips throughout. Pattinson’s Connie does these selfish crimes, but at the core, it seems like he’s really doing this stuff because he believes he’s helping his brother.

Remember Me is an angsty performance from Pattinson, which helps build the emotional tension of the film.
