Robert Pattinson gets really steamy with Uma Thurman in the first clip for "Bel Ami". Rob's Georges Duroy is sexually teased by the older lady while they discuss the merit of changing Georges' name into something "memorable." The two start to indulge themselves in a heavy kissing session that leads them to bed.
George is a penniless soldier who gains power by seducing the wives of French socialites while traveling through 1890s Paris. Using his wits and power of seduction, he moves from prostitute's embrace to passionate tryst with wealthy beauties who inhabit where sex is power and celebrity is an obsession, and where politics and media jostle for influence.
An adaptation of Guy de Maupassant's classic novel, "Bel Ami" is directed by Declan Donnellan and Nick Ormerod. The period drama was premiered at the 62nd annual Berlin International Film Festival to somewhat mixed reviews from critics. Last March, the film was officially acquired by Magnolia Pictures, which has set June 8 as the day when the movie hits the U.S. theaters.
Joining Rob and Uma in the cast ensemble are Kristin Scott Thomas, Christina Ricci, Colm Meaney, Philip Glenister, Holliday Grainger and James Lance.
