Robert PattinsonRobert Pattinson may be headed back to where there are a lot of memories -- the Cannes Film Festival. Back in 2012, before the crap hit the fan in their relationship, Rob and Kristen Stewart attended the festival together while Rob promoted Cosmopolis. It was one of the few times the couple indulged in some PDA in front of the cameras. For many, it was the first real proof that the two were even together -- before that, it seemed like they kinda sorta maybe knew each other and had probably slept together a few times but who the hell knows really. But at the festival, they were a total couple! Remember that hot pic of the two of them smooching outside of a Cannes party?

The next year, neither of them attended. But this year, it appears that Rob's film Maps to the Stars will be shown at Cannes, and the director, David Cronenberg, has already said he would go. Since he and Rob are pretty tight, it's almost a given that Rob will go too.

Especially since he will want to do everything he can to promote the new film. Cosmopolis tanked at the box office, taking in less than $1 million. There's scant chance these two will get to work together again if Maps to the Stars fares just as badly -- unless they want to pay for a movie themselves.

The festival is in May.

Fun fact: Julianne Moore also stars in Maps to the Stars. She is now starring with Kristen Stewart in Still Alice. Maybe Kristen occasionally walks up to Julianne and is all, "I wonder what Rob is up to ... ?" You think they gossip about him?

So I wonder what it will be like for Rob to attend the festival again, when the last time he was there, he and Kristen were so lovey-dovey on the red carpet? Gotta bring back some memories. Maybe enough to make him rethink their relationship?

Do you think that Rob will be totally sad to attend Cannes all by his lonesome?
