Kristen Stewart and James Gandolfini in the Welcome to the Rileys trailer

Posted by: Brad Sturdivant

Anytime a Twilight star branches out and does something other than Twilight, it’s big news these days.  Not just for the Twi-hards, but for non-fans of the film that are anxious to see if the Twilight stars can make it without the help of Stephenie Meyer’s novels.  A while back I went out and predicted the fates of the TWILIGHT stars after TWILIGHT and people were very vocal about their opinions, specifically Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart.  I don’t mind Stewart, but I still don’t see WELCOME TO THE RILEYS as her branching out from her usual tough-girl-with-issues characters.  With that said, this looks like a really good movie, mainly because of the great-looking performances from James Gandolfini and Melissa Leo.

The film is about a couple (Gandolfini and Leo) that lose their daughter and the aftermath from that tragedy.  Things take a turn in their lives when the father takes it upon himself to help out a troubled girl (Stewart) that reminds him of his lost daughter.  Ridley Scott’s son, Jake Scott is directing the film that hits theaters on November 5th.  Watch the trailer here.
