Unforgettable night.

NEW YORK

Summit Entertainment's latest drama, "Remember Me," looks and sounds like an indie pic expecting arthouse B.O., but the flocks of screaming teens (and quite a few of their mothers) begged to differ with that assessment at the film's Gotham preem March 1 at the Paris Theater. Fans arrived with cameras, pens and copies of "Twilight" books for "Remember Me" star Robert Pattinson, whose vampire franchise co-star Kristen Stewart was also on hand.

"Robert helped everyone feel comfortable about the box office potential, but it wasn't a situation where you were trying to cast money," said scribe Will Fetters at the Plaza Hotel after-party. Fetters said Pattinson was cast in the pic before "Twilight" tapped the box office vein.

The New York-centric film appealed to Gothamite and helmer Allen Coulter, whom Fetters credits with supplying much of the pic's authenticity.

"It's character-driven and touched on themes that are pretty universal, but, oddly enough, I hadn't seen them dealt with lately," said pic's Chris Cooper. "The idea of working to get beyond the petty angers and frustrations with people before it's too late--that's what I came away with when I read it."
