USA Release Date for Bel Ami

For all of you that have sent us e-mails wondering when Rob Pattinson’s new film Bel Ami will be released in theatres in the US, the wait is over!  Deadline New York is reporting that Bel Ami will be in theatres on June 8.   Magnolia films will also make the film available on demand on May 4.

The Wagner/Cuban Company’s Magnolia Pictures announced today the June 8th U.S. theatrical release of BEL AMI, starring Robert Pattinson, Uma Thurman, Kristin Scott Thomas, Christina Ricci, and Colm Meaney. BEL AMI had its World Premiere as an Official Selection of last month’s 62nd Berlin International Film Festival.

In this sexy retelling of Guy de Maupassant’s classic tale of blackmail, manipulation, and social-climbing, set against 19th century Paris, Pattinson stars as the young and very ambitious George Duroy, who discovers that his unadulterated passion and seduction skills with influential Parisian ladies (Ricci, Thurman, and Thomas), above-all, is the fastest and most effective way to the upper echelons of the society he so desperately wants to control.

Do you plan on going to see the film? Is this wait too long for you? Will you see it on demand or in the theatre? Let us know in the comments! Thanks to LadyLovesLeo for the heads up.


  1. Elizabeth (EverythingRemindsMeOfTwilight) says:

    Finally! I’ll see it in theaters. I hope they promote it well. I was very impressed with Rob in the trailer.

  2. I am planning to see it in the theater. I am looking forward to seeing Robert in a different role. I saw him in Remember Me, and thought he was wonderful. He becomes the character. His role in Remember Me haunted me for about two days….


  3. Ooh, just a week after Kristen in SWATH!

  4. Diana Rothe says:

    Glad they finally decided on a release date. I’ll be going to see it and really looking forward to seeing Rob in something completely different!

  5. LadyLovesLeo says:

    I can’t wait! I’m going to watch it on demand May 4. If the theatrical release isn’t widely distributed, it probably won’t make it to my area. Thanks Lex!

  6. Does anyone know if Bel Ami will be available on demand in Canada?
