Will Robert Pattinson knock “Avatar” of the top of the box office when he debuts his new film “Remember Me”?

That is what studio heads are hoping for as “Remember me” is set to debut.

“Avatar” has become the highest grossing film of all time and seems set to reign at the box office. Director James Cameron once famously described d himself as “King of the world,” but can RPatz and his star power dethrone the king?

The Pattinson star power may mean that “Remember Me” becomes the first movie to top “Avatar.”

The movie is about a strained relationship between a father, played by Irish actor Pierce Brosnan, and his son Tyler, played by Pattinson.

Speaking of his role Pattinson has said: "I think what, in a lot of ways, the film means to me is really about just Tyler’s journey. I mean I connected to it in a very personal way, and what I really thought was interesting was it chronicles a time in a young guy’s life ...  I don’t know if it would really happen to a girl as well ...  where you, you begin to trust your own feelings.

“If you like someone, like Tyler does in the movie or, you know, if you’re sad or anything, you start to trust your own mind a little bit more. And there’s very few movies that specifically deal with that."
