Kristen Stewart is, for me, another one of those "just-how-exactly-did-she-become-a-movie-star?" movie stars.

I wish I was somewhere else" B.S. bit gets on my last nerve.

Here's the first trailer for that Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson crime drama we first told you about in early 2011 and haven't written a word about since. Probably because there's been nothing about it to write about... until today, now that its trailer has turned up online.
