It was supposed to be Robert Pattinson’s triumphant return to theaters, starring opposite a pair of Academy Award winners in Reese Witherspoon and Christoph Waltz. Instead, Water for Elephants was topped by the animated sleeper hit Rio and Tyler Perry's latest Madea movie to open in third place. With The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn signaling the end of the franchise that helped turn Pattinson into a mega-star, it’s time to start concentrating on what the guy does from here on out. Sure, there are still two more Twilight movies set to hit theaters (in November 2011 and 2012), but we should get used to seeing R-Patz trying out some new things (I know it’s hard, but you can do it!).
