What’s Going on With Bel Ami?   21 comments

Bel Ami finished filming in April 2010 (before Water for Elephants began shooting). Since then we’ve barely heard anything about when the movie will be released. We’ve seen a few stills, a trailer that was quickly pulled, we’ve heard whispers here and there but nothing has been officially confirmed by Protagonist film. We’ve heard that Bel Ami might premiere at TIFF (which we really, really hope will happen). However we have no official confirmation yet.

We’ve been wondering, what’s going on with Bel Ami? When will we get an official release date? 

In an interview with Total Films back in March Rob said the following

“We were really true to the book and because the guy is basically a shit who wins everything at the end it’s really difficult to market it  – especially with me in it,” Pattinson tells TF exclusively.

“Everyone’s worried that everyone’s going to be thinking, ‘Oh I want him to be nice, he’s got to be nice to all the ladies’.”

Which means that they were having trouble marketing the movie because it would ruin Rob’s “good guy” image. However to me, this doesn’t make a whole lot of sense. All actors play various roles, good and bad. A role does not define the nature of the actor behind the character. 

The trailer which was also seen by many people has received great reviews that can be sees here. Which means that people are anticipating this film.

Back in June 2010 Bel Ami was #8 on Shockya’s 10 most anticipated period films  as you can see below. 

8. Bel Ami
The Story of the rise to power of Georges Duroy in Paris by manipulating the city’s most influential and wealthy women. This film stars Twilight’s Robert Pattinson and many are anxiously waiting to see if Robert can hold his own against Hollywood sirens like Uma Thurman and Kristen Scott Thomas.

So my question is the following: The demand is there, when is it going to be released? 

What do you guys think? Share your thoughts in the comments. 

ETA From larry411  : 

There’s a very simple answer to all your questions! :) There’s a very good chance that the film will have its World Premiere at the Toronto Film Festival next month. I was told that it would be although we won’t know until next Tuesday when they announce the next round of Galas and Special Presentations. If it is, that would explain why there’s been no release announced since most studios, especially for indies, will use Toronto as a place where distributors will look at the film and bid to buy it. That’s really the way to go. So, if they wanted to submit it for TIFF, and if they hoped it would get in, it would have made no sense at all for them to have released it. It would do MUCH better if it played TIFF, got picked up there, and then got released.

So, the simple answer is…it isn’t being released because they are going to use TIFF to get the best deal possible, which is what all fans should want. That is, IF it will be playing there.

Thanks for the info Larry! Once again you rock 😉
