It’s here– and it’s really intense. A first trailer for the upcoming film, ‘Queen of the Desert’ has just been released, and it features Robert Pattinson like we’ve never seen him before. Check it out now!
In Queen of the Desert, which will hit theaters at a still-to-be determined date later this year, Nicole Kidman will take on the role of the famed explorer and diplomat, Gertrude Bell. As she travels the world, Gertrude comes across several interesting and notable romantic interests, including one played by Mr. Robert Pattinson. Oh, and a super dapper James Franco. Ya know, if you’re into that sort of thing. The whole movie looks epic and awesome! Watch the trailer right now!
“Every step in the desert, life and fire claim me,” says Gertrude. “And I’m consumed.”
As if the pics of Rob in character snuggling lion cubs wasn’t enough to get us pumped about Queen of the Desert, we’ve now got a totally insane trailer. From famed director Werner Herzog (who also penned the script), the movie debuted at the Berlin Film festival in February.
It will depict a ten year period of Gertrude’s life, with Rob and James both playing her respective love interests at various times, in addition to Homeland star, Damian Lewis. However, the movie will delve into much more serious matters than those of romance, as well.
Gertrude, most famously, helped to establish the countries Iraq and Jordan, and viewers will see some of what went into that achievement, as well as Gertrude’s other dealings with Arab nations. In other words, this isn’t your typical R-Patz movie, and we cannot wait to see him shine!
