Robert Pattinson’s “Bel Ami” having world premiere in Berlin

By Sean O’Connell “Twilight” fanatics, obviously, are waiting for the second “Breaking Dawn” to reach theaters in November. But those of us waiting to see if Robert Pattinson has a career outside of the undead saga have circled February as a release-date of interest.

That’s when Pattinson’s “Bel Ami” will hold its world premiere at the Berlin International Film Festival, organizers announced on Friday. “Bel Ami” is a period drama that finds young Pattinson sleeping his way across the European continent. Brit directors Declan Donnellan and Nick Ormerod are adapting their story from the French novel by Guy de Maupassant. The film co-stars Uma Thurman, Christina Ricci, Kristin Scott Thomas and Colm Meaney.

In addition to “Bel Ami,” Berlin revealed that it would host screenings of Steven Soderbergh’s “Haywire” (which opens in the States today), Nikolaj Arcel’s “A Royal Affair” with Mads Mikkelsen, “Rebelle” from Canadian director Kim Nguyen, and the French film “Coming Home” from Frederic Videau.

The full Berlin lineup will be announced in the coming weeks. This year’s festival is scheduled for Feb. 9-19.

    He’ll have a career as long as he strives for it and whether this is successful or not is not a big determinant. You should just go watch the movie because you want to watch it and stop being concerned about Rob’s career. That’s for him to concentrate on and not us.
