Following the previous outing of two clips, "Little Ashes" has just got its first trailer. Timed around 2:19, the video footage serves as an introduction to main character Salvador Dali and his two friends, Federico Garcia Lorca and Luis Bunuel. It also highlights the untold romantic story between Dali and Lorca, and the political unrest of pre-Spanish Civil War.

Set against the backdrop of Fascist Spain in 1922, the Regent Releasing drama follows three of the era's most creative young talents, Dali, Lorca and Bunuel. Setting off on a course to change their world, the three form a bond when they meet at university. But, their friendship becomes strained as Dali and Lorca's relationship develops into an unusual love affair.

Taking its title from Salvador Dali's 1927-28 painting Cenicitas, "Little Ashes" stars Robert Pattinson as Dali, Javier Beltran as Federico Garcia Lorca and Matthew McNulty as Luis Bunuel. This drama film from director Paul Morrison has been premiered at the 16th annual Raindance film festival in London back in October. It will get its limited U.S. release sometime in 2009.

I really think Rob is brave to do an act like this. It looks like a great movie, and as some people said before i hope they are not just going to see it to see Rob nude, or have sex with a man. But i still really want to see it because it looks like a very touching movie

I really want to see this movie and just because Rob plays a gay part dose not mean that he is gay and it seems like a decent film!

You think the world has grown to accept homosexuality in some way until you read comments like the ones on this page. It is 2009 and a film with such history and depth like this one must have people only talking about Rob P playing a gay roll? Do you think this is the only gay roll an actor of his caliber has played? You are the people that are slowing this world down and make it dumb.

Why in the world would someone make Robert Pattinson of all people have sex with a man. You should just changed it so poor Robert wouldn't have to do it. So that's it and i know Robert will nail it!!!!!

I don't know why directors think the audience needs to see the hard core sex scenes--- People are smart enough to know what is going on in a movie than to have the explicit detail played out. Rob even admits he was uncomfortable doing the nude shots. May be Rob needed the money back then? As this flick was made before "Twilight" came out. But, if your not comfortable doing a role, posing for playboy ect. DON'T DO IT!

I must say Allegra, you have said everything that i was going to. And Rob should pick what ever movies he feels comfortable with and if he wanted to do this movie........ good on him!

Just read about the nervous breakdown following the sex seen in the Salvador Dali movie… It is a totally understandable and expected reaction to having to go against nature, however, if it was me, I would try to focus on the artistic side of the act.. of course I haven’t seen the movie, but considering that it’s going to be a piece of art, having a straight man pull that off would be a much bigger achievement then just hiring an already gay actor to play that role… So Rob, if you’re still having inner battles about that, I hope you’ll get over it and I also hope that whomever is planning on seeing the movie would do it for more reasons then just to look at “naked Edward” or see “the hottest Vampire” doing it with a man…There will be a lot of spectators who would appreciate your talent as an actor and would be watching the so- called “erotic” seen/s with an objective and mature perspective. You were asked to play the role of an icon and to fully do it you had to portray all the important details of that person’s life… one crucial detail had to be hard core sex with a male… so be it…that just shows how serious you are about your acting career and willing to go beyond your boundaries to succeed… Kudos to that. Looking forward to seeing the movie..

I wish that Rob could have picked a different film to show how diverse he is. This is a little too much for most people. I am hoping that he will realize how great of an actor he is, and be a little more cautious with the next films he takes on. However, I wish him the best of luck.

Does anyone know if there is any plans on this film being nationwide? I live in an area that usually has no chance at viewing independant films, but after seeing the trailers and reading these comments I am jumping out of my skin with the anxiety that I have to see this film. I am a Rob Pattison fan because of what I have seen sparks of in past performances from him, I have felt that he is an amazing artist in the making and from the sounds of this film, he is there.

I cant wait to see this film, It looks so wonderfull,I am so happy he played a gay character it will sort out his true fans not just the Edward lovers. Rob is an unreal actor and deserves the best roles so he can continue to wow us all

wow reading all of these comment has got me really excited to go see the movie. ive watched the trailer a hundred times and im very excited for it! rob is going to be amazing!

I guess this role is a wonderful chance for us to see another Robert, other side of his skill. I bet it was a good experience for him. First thing I thought of when heard him doing this movie was Heath Ledger in 'Brokeback Mountain'though it's not one and the same thing. Somebody told Robert isn't good enough to pull this show off but I don't actually agree. He is an actor and his main aim is to make us believe speaking of this role - that he's a homosexual, though he's not. Heath wasn't either but he really did his best and I still consider this role to be one of his greatest. I hope Robert did his best too, cause I'm gettin tired of everybody associating him only with Edward Cullen and Cedric Diggory characters. That really sucks. He is much more and I'm sure one day I'll watch him getting his first Oscar and I hope not the last.

okay i want to see this movie but the fact that robert plays a homosexual is a bit disturbing. but i really want to see it. and also the fact that it is rated R for sexual content and brief disturbing images kinda throws me for a loop...ummmmm...yea....BUT I REALLY WANT TO SEE IT!

A few comments I saw on IMDB from people who have seen the film: The writer (Phillipa, who seemed beyond lovely) did a really amazing job with Dali in the early part of the film, I thought. She makes him really personable, in spite of his eccentricities - there was never a doubt in my head that Lorca could and would be drawn to him, and Rob is always so endearing it's a really great combination. He brings a real likeability to Dali, which totally changed my perception of Dali when he moves to Paris and then comes back as a slightly more affected version of himself. And the way Rob plays that is great, because even when Dali's doing things beyond the usual and even being almost cruelly superior and self-involved, there's the occasional flicker of the other Dali, the real one, who has this inherent sadness, motivated by his fears. As if he's trying to get out of this persona he's created, but he's too scared. I was really happy - as a Rob fan - with everything in the film. He gets some wonderful light moments (for me, that was when he really shone, because he has this inherent comic timing that you just can't learn and it's onscreen magic), and then some really intense scenes, where he really delivers emotionally too. I've seen reviews of HTB saying that it's amazing how he flips between the two with such speed and skill, and I agree.

Saw the film at screening and Pattinson and Beltran had wonderful chemsitry. Both actors got the essence of the characters. Pattinson's role was harder as its so easy to go over the top but he pulled off a wonderful performance. The film looks visually stunning and I found the time flew by. A totally engrossing and absorbing film. Fangirls of Pattinson will have much to enjoy. He makes a great on screen drunk and has excellent comic timing. Javier Beltran was excellent and has the larger role of the two but I'm not sure if he has that on screen presence to make him a successful film actor.

I love the trailer and Pattinson looks perfect. Seems to have nailed the performance. I hate the american voice over guy in the trailer. Didnt need it.

I saw this film at Raindance. Pattinson exceeded my expectation and is very convincing as Dali and as the film progresses he grows into the Dali we think we know.Pattinson and Beltran both give very intense performances and you totally buy into the Dali/Lorca relationship. The actors had great chemistry with one another. The sexual aspects of the story are handled beautifully. The scene between Pattinson and Beltran in the moonlit waters is so incredibly beautiful and it probably ranks as the most gorgeous looking scene I've ever seen. The cinematographer on this film needs a pat on the back as does the composer and costume designer. The scene where Dali watches Lorca make love to Magdalena sounds titilating but actually is a heartbreaking moment and Pattinson is incredible.The growing fascination between Lorca and Dali is beautfully played out and the script has obviously been crafted with care and attention. The director deserves much praise for handling this film with such tact and sensitivity and I hope it gets picked up for a decent cinema release.I wont spoil the end for people but its particularly tragic and Pattinson really shines in this key moment.
