[Trailer] – Bel Ami

5 Apr

 

Robert Pattinson seems to be intent on distancing himself from his Twilight image now that he’s finished shooting the vampire franchise (the last installment of which comes out in November). And while I’m super excited to see what he does with the lead role in David Cronenberg‘s Cosmopolis, first we’ll have to see him in Declan Donnellan and Nick Ormerod‘s Bel Ami, for which you can watch a new trailer above.

The film, an adaptation of Guy de Maupassant‘s 1886 novel, centers on Mr. Pattinson’s Georges Duroy, a young man in 1890’s Paris who sleeps his way to the top of French society by bedding a series of wealthy women. And the trailer really does just focus pretty much on that, Mr. Pattinson getting his sexy on while trying to seem like a reedemable guy. Not really doing it for me, honestly; I think we’ll have to wait for Cosmopolis to see what Mr. Pattinson can bring when he’s not a glimmering vampire.

Directed by Declan Donnellan and Nick Ormerod; written by Rachel Bennette, adapting from the Guy de Maupassant novel; starring Robert Pattinson, Uma Thurman, Kristin Scott Thomas and Christina Ricci. Bel Ami will be available on VOD May 4th, and opens in theaters June 8th.
