Robert Pattinson may have been at Comic Con promoting Twilight: Breaking Dawn yesterday (watch the footage here) but tonight it’s all about his new movie, Bel Ami which has just had it’s first trailer released. You might remember we put up some images for the movie a little while ago and now, Protagonist Pictures have released this first trailer.

The film is helmed by Declan Donnellan and Nick Ormerod and as well as Pattinson stars Uma Thurman, Kristin Scott Thomas, Christina Ricci, and the fabulous Colm Meaney who I will always remember as Chief O’Brien in Star Trek: The Next Generation or the fighting guy in Far Away!

Bel Ami is the story of Georges Duroy (Pattinson), 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.
