Forget San Diego Comic-Con, the real superhero is Robert Pattinson and his unrelenting charm in the first trailer for his drama Bel Ami. Based Guy de Maupassant‘s classic novel, the main thing I take away from this film is anyone that lays eyes on our Twilight star wants to sleep with him. And then he eventually becomes a cranky man. Sound good? Check out the trailer below via YouTube for the film also starring Uma Thurman, Kristin Scott Thomas and Christina Ricci and directed by Declan Donnellan and Nick Ormerod.
A chronicle of a young man’s rise to power in Paris via his manipulation of the city’s most influential and wealthy women.
I actually think Pattinson has some talent, so I’ll be looking forward to checking this one out. No release date has been set, but I assume we’ll see this one on the fall festival circuit.
What do you make of a non-Twilight Pattinson?
