Robert Pattinson in 'Bel Ami' Trailer Is Hotter Than Ever (VIDEO)

robert pattinsonOur favorite pale vampire is leaving the supernatural behind and taking on one heck of a manly role. Robert Pattinson stars in Bel Ami, a movie based on the classic French novel of the same name, as a penniless solider who goes to Paris to make a fortune. Christina Ricci, Kristin Scott Thomas, and Uma Thurman co-star in this period piece and by all accounts, this is going to one sexy flick. The trailer for the film was released today and it gives us a titillating glimpse into RPatz's new starring role.

And by god, is it hot.

First of all, there's not one, but two scenes in the trailer in which Robert is shirtless and there's not one, but a handful of clips showing him seducing older women. I'm sorry -- is that not a dream come true, or what? Uma and RPatz? Kristin Scott Thomas and RPatz? I love it.

This role could really broaden Robert's fanbase from teens, fantasy geeks, and older ladies who likey the vampires (hello!) to not only the couger sect (hello, again!), but fans of period films, French literature, and critically acclaimed movies. Even though he's one of the most famous men on the planet, Bel Ami could still be a game changer for him. He'll show off some serious sex appeal and acting chops while starring with some of Hollywood's biggest names. I'm sure he'll, um, rise to the occasion.

And good thing RPatz had some practice in a film adapted from a book. Maybe Water for Elephants wasn't that great of a flick, but hey, it might have prepared Robert for this important role in Bel Ami.

Watch the trailer and tell me what you think below.

    Am I one of the few who is not attracted to him, at all? He's just fine as an actor, but I like my men more... manly. Jason Statham... now that's a man :)

    Well I thought Water for Elephants was a pretty good. It was a really beautiful movie. Anyway this trailer looks good an Rob looks like he's put in a great performance. Also just want to point out Bel Ami was actually filmed before Water for Elephants.

    Robert filmed Bel Ami way before he worked on Water for Elephants, so there's no question about learning from WFE here. You bloggers need to check your facts before you spout off. In fact, the direct result of his work with Declan Donellan and the Bel Ami cast can be seen in Twilight:Eclipse's famous "Tent Scene" (physically, as well -- he sports his Bel Ami hair in much of the scene) which David Slade was forced to reshoot for some odd reason only Stephenie Meyer knows.
