“Life” First Trailer: Robert Pattinson Photographer Character Makes James Dean A Star – WATCH VIDEO
The first trailer for Life, starring Robert Pattinson as Life magazine photographer Dennis Stock and Dane DeHaan as James Dean, has been released. In it, we see Pattinson’s character helping Dean become a big star. Watch the film’s first trailer below!
As Gossip Cop reported, Life is based on on the real-life friendship between Stock and Dean, who met in the early 1950s when the two embarked on a road trip as part of a magazine interview. Some of the pictures Stock took of Dean went on to become the most famous images of the late movie star, including the picture of the screen legend walking through Times Square with a cigarette dangling out of his mouth.
Sporting darker hair and a New York accent, in the trailer for Life we see Pattinson’s Stock character convincing his editors and even Dean himself that he’s going to turn the young actor into a big star.
Directed by Anton Corbijn, Life also stars Ben Kingsley and Joel Edgerton. The movie had its world premiere in February at the Berlin Film Festival. While it does not yet have a U.S. release date, in the meantime you can see the first official trailer here.
