It's a good day to be a Robert Pattinson fan. First we had news that Lionsgate continues to flirt and tease the idea of yet another "Twilight" movie, and now, a ten minute sizzle reel of RPatz hawtness from "Bel Ami" has made its way online.

Set to premire at the Berlin Film Festival this week, the film is based on the book by Guy de Maupassant, co-stars Uma Thurman, Kristin Scott Thomas and Christina Ricci, and will find Pattinson playing George Duroy, a sexy social climber in turn-of-the-century 1890s Paris, who seduces his way to wealth and fame from a poor beginning. First let's get one thing out of the way -- Pattinson looks fine here, and handles all the scenes well, so if anything about the movie doesn't work, it won't be all on his shoulders. Among the glimpses we get here, we see RPatz putting the moves on Thomas in a church of all places, as well as a scene earlier in the film with a much poorer George Duroy giving some whores a serious eyeballing. We close on Pattinson's relationship with the wealthy Ricci while he's still a pauper, but we know that's not gonna end well. Side note: that score by Rachel Portman and Lakshman Joseph De Saram sounds pretty good.

We'll soon here yay or nay on the picture as word creeps out of Berlin, but until then, get a taste below.
