'Bel Ami' Trailer: Robert Pattinson's Prestige Version Of 'Loveboy'?

Posted: Updated:

Before he was McDreamy, Patrick Dempsey was a teen idol famous for "Can't Buy Me Love." That film is great and all, but it was his "Love" follow-up, titled "Loverboy," that really put Dempsey on the map -- at least for people like me, who watched the completely inappropriate sex comedy on HBO when they were kids. (Sorry, mom!)

"Loverboy" comes to mind while watching the new trailer for "Bel Ami," the Robert Pattinson-led adaptation of Guy de Maupassant's novel about a fallen solider who becomes a lady killer in France during the 19th century. Sexy times! Unfortunately, because it's 19th century Paris and not 1980s California, pizza delivery companies don't exist -- that means lovely ladies like Uma Thurman, Christina Ricci and Kristen Scott Thomas have to take a more traditional approach in their attempts to bed R-Pattz. No extra anchovies in this one.

As you'll see in the trailer, things seem to go south pretty quickly -- "It's not enough to be loved, it's so clear to me" -- meaning there probably isn't a happy ending involving "The Way You Look Tonight."

"Bel Ami" can been downloaded on iTunes starting May 4; it hits theaters in June. Head over to Apple to watch the trailer in HD.
