New Trailer for BEL-AMI Starring Robert Pattinson

     December 22, 2011


A new trailer for the period drama Bel-Ami has gone online. Based on Guy de Maupassant’s 1885 novel of the same name, the story centers on a poverty-stricken soldier who climbs the social ladder in Paris by manipulating a number of mistresses. The trailer is basically Robert Pattinson bedding a bunch of involved women, then being surprised at the fact that his “Imma sex every girl in Paris” attitude brings him trouble. His conquests include Uma Thurman, Kristin Scott Thomas, and Christina Ricci. I haven’t read de Maupassant’s novel, but the story doesn’t exactly look all that appealing based on this trailer.

Hit the jump to check out the trailer. Directed by Declan Donnellan and Nick Omerod, Bel-Ami opens in the U.K. on March 2nd and is currently awaiting a domestic release date.

Here’s the trailer (via MSN):

Bel Ami is the story of Georges Duroy (Pattinson), 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.

    Pattinson is not handsome, it’s like i’m trapped in the twilight zone here…

    Nothing wrong with a little 19th century Kanye West. This looks watchablea enpugh, but it’s Cosmpolis that’s going to blow the doors wide open on how good and actor Pattinson is.

    Just wait.

    This is the Man of this Generation..talented, humble smart and very sexy. He has it all..and anybody still comparing him to Edward is clearly jealous and small minded

    bel-ami is a good book. its not everyones type, but the message behind the book can still be see today. its about people who lie, cheat, and manipulate to get what they want.
