Robert Pattinson Trailer for Bel Ami
07.25.11 by Mandy
We already know that Robert Pattinson looks great in pale makeup and amber-colored contacts, but how does he look in 19th-century formal attire? The answer is pretty dang good.
Pattinson stars in the upcoming indie period drama, Bel Ami, based on the 1885 novel by Guy de Maupassant. Like most novels set in Paris in the late 1800s, Bel Ami is a story about scandal, society, infidelity, and power. In the movie, Pattinson plays Georges Duroy, a journalist who gains power by manipulating and seducing rich and prominent Parisian women. The trailer was released this weekend, and it's pretty clear that RPattz could have caused all kinds of mischief in the Victorian era looking that good.
Uma Thurman, Christina Ricci, Kristin Scott Thomas, and Natalia Tena co-star as the women that get wrapped in the web spun by Pattinson's Duroy. Bel Ami is directed by Declan Donnellan and Nick Ormerod, and the book was adapted to a screenplay by Rachel Bennette. It is slated to open October 19.
