Robert Pattinson is seething with lust in an explosive portrayal of Guy de Maupassant’s scandalous protagonist in a leaked trailer of “Bel Ami,” a movie about decadent French society, co-starring Uma Thurman, Christina Ricci and Kristin Scott Thomas.
This could be the film where Pattinson establishes himself as an actor, on par with Marlon Brando, James Dean and Richard Burton.
He exudes lust, desire and ambition as a “penniless” soldier who’s determined to find his place in French society by seducing the wives of powerful men at the center of Parisian society.
The film is about the corrupt rise of Georges Duroy, who becomes one of the most successful men in Paris by manipulating powerful, intelligent, and wealthy mistresses.
Robert Pattinson’s much anticipated “Breaking Dawn” sex scene might not hold an oil lamp to the action in the actor’s upcoming period piece, “Bel Ami,” if a trailer leaked Friday is any indication.
In a web of French intrigue and bedsheets, Pattinson plays a “penniless” soldier who’s trying to break into society. Turns out the young man fortunately has some, um, skill when it comes to entertaining the wives of powerful men at the core of Parisian society.
A trailer for the film, posted early Friday and then taken down, shows RPattz courting beauties played by Uma Thurman, Christina Ricci and Kristin Scott Thomas. His amply notched bedpost soon gets the better of him, and heavy breathing, high stakes and lots of corridor-running ensue.
This trailer for Bel Ami gets it. The movie stars Robert Pattinson and someone involved somewhere in their marketing department seems to not only understand who he is, but who his audience is. Robert Pattinson is the girl-crush of every woman who has ever read or will read a romance novel. Women want to fantasize about being seduced by him, bedded by him, swept off their feet by him. So the first trailer for Bel Ami is nothing but a series of sequences in which Robert Pattinson does that to a series of different women of all ages.
The first trailer for Bel Ami covers Robert Pattinson’s entire seduction demographic from young (Christina Ricci) to middle-aged (Uma Thurman) to much more than middle-aged (Kristin Scott Thomas). It’s as if someone walked into Comic Con’s Hall H during the Twilight panel, wrote down what everyone there wanted, and walked out to craft a trailer for Bel Ami which would satisfy that.
