In the past year there have been more than a few trailers for Bel Ami, the story set in late 1800s Paris in which Robert Pattinson plays a guy who sleeps and seduces his way into wealth. The film has played some festivals to middling reviews, but now that the first official US trailer has arrived, it’s worth having a look. The cast is appealing, at least, as Uma Thurman, Kristin Scott Thomas, Christina Ricci, Colm Meaney, Philip Glenister, and Holliday Grainger join Pattinson in the film directed by Declan Donnellan, Nick Ormerod.

Among his conquests, apparently, are Christina Ricci, Uma Thurman, Kristin Scott Thomas. Watch the trailer after the jump.
