Domestic Trailer for BEL AMI Starring Robert Pattinson

     April 3, 2012


The domestic trailer for the adaptation of Guy de Maupassant’s 1886 novel Bel Ami has gone online.  The film stars Robert Pattinson as an ambitious young journalist who works his way up the social and professional ranks through a series of affairs with influential women.  The trailer basically highlights Pattinson getting his seduction on, then tries to shoehorn in a bit about his character being redeemable.   Call me crazy, but I don’t really find the tale of a liar wooing a bevy of women to be that interesting.  I’m sure Pattinson’s fans will get a kick out of watching his bedroom eyes for two hours, but I’m eager to see the actor stretch his dramatic chops on a project that isn’t focused entirely on sex (or the lack thereof).

Hit the jump to watch the trailer.  The film also stars Uma Thurman, Kristin Scott Thomas, Christina Ricci, and Colm MeaneyBel Ami will be available VOD on May 4th and opens in theaters on June 8th.

Here’s the synopsis for Bel Ami:

BEL AMI is the story of Georges Duroy, who travels through 1890s Paris, from cockroach ridden garrets to opulent salons, using his wits and powers of seduction to rise from poverty to wealth, from a prostitute’s embrace to passionate trysts with wealthy beauties, in a world where politics and media jostle for influence, where sex is power and celebrity an obsession.
