Robert Pattinson and Uma Thurman's Bel Ami will hit US theaters on June 8th
Robert Pattinson’s Twilight character, Edward Cullen, has his legions of fans around the world and they’ve transferred somewhat nicely for Robert Pattinson as he’s tried to break away from the Twilight mold and into more serious, adult oriented movies. His previous efforts have been a mixed bag, including the mediocre REMEMBER ME and the good-but-not-great WATER FOR ELEPHANTS. But Robert Pattinson has two films on the way that his fans should be excited for: BEL AMI and COSMOPOLIS. We all assume COSMOPOLIS will be released late in the fall in time for awards season, but until today, the release date for BEL AMI was a mystery. And I know all you Twi-hards out there are dying to see Robert Pattinson seduce women through19th Century Paris.
Magnolia Pictures will be releasing the film and along with a release date of June 8th, they released this synopsis: “In this sexy retelling of Guy de Maupassant’s classic tale of blackmail, manipulation, and social-climbing, set against 19th century Paris, Pattinson stars as the young and very ambitious George Duroy (Robert Pattinson), who discovers that his unadulterated passion and seduction skills with influential Parisian ladies (Ricci, Thurman, and Thomas), above-all, is the fastest and most effective way to the upper echelons of the society he so desperately wants to control.”
BEL AMI stars Robert Pattinson, Christina Ricci, Uma Thurman, Kristen Scott Thomas and Colm Meaney. It’s being handled by the directing duo of Declan Donnellan and Nick Ormerod. And I don’t want to start a riot, or encourage any die-hard Robert Pattinson fan to travel to England, but they had their premiere a couple of weeks ago, not to mention the worldwide premiere in Germany at the Berlin Film Festival. The rest of us in the States will have to keep staring at the numerous images from BEL AMI until June 8th.
