It’s been a long time coming, but now we’ve finally got our hands on the first sneak peek...
And it looks rather steamy, to say the least…
Mr Pattinson shot the period-style flick between Twilight films in 2009, and was spotted on location in Budapest, with co-star Uma Thurman.
The movie – which also stars Christina Ricci and Kristin Scott Thomas – charts a young man’s rise to power in Paris and his manipulation of the city’s most wealthy and influential women.
Rob has already spoken of how the film features several steamy scenes, telling MTV: I think there’s quite a bit of nudity.’
But Earlier this year we were worried the movie might never see the light of day, after it stalled during the editing stages with bosses worried Rob’s womanizing character was becoming unmarketable.
‘We were really true to the book and because the guy is basically a s**t who wins everything at the end it’s really difficult to market it – especially with me in it,’ the actor told Total Film.
‘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”’.
Team MC are reserving judgement…
