Bel Ami trailer with gigolo Pattinson
Wow, isn't Robert Pattinson trying hard to get rid of his Twilight image, and good on him too. His latest film Bel Ami looks like it's really taking him far away from that film, although he's still keeping the heart-throb image.
He's becoming a gigolo and pampering to a list of rather gorgeous women including Uma Thurman, Natalia Tena, Christina Ricci and Kristin Scott Thomas. Lucky man.
The film sees a man climbing the social ladder and making a name for himself using sex as a tool, but from the trailer it looks like he has a realisation during the height of his conquests, but will it be just in time or too late?
Here's the blurb to help us find out...
Bel Ami is the story of Georges Duroy, 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.
I have to admit that Robert Pattinson is playing this pretty well, he's not going far enough away from his current image and fans to lose them from these new roles, and he's taking just big enough steps to push his acting and showcase some more of what he's capable of before Twilight is over.
