Kristen Stewart brings drama to the trailer for Camp X-Ray

08.08.2014

Some actors find it hard to climb their way out of a franchise once it's over and done with, but that's not going to stop Kristen Stewart from trying. At the very least, for those who feel she's a one-note actress, she looks to be playing the right note here in the trailer for CAMP X-RAY.

Take a look:

Here's the synopsis:

A young woman joins the military to be part of something bigger than herself and her small town roots. But she ends up as a new guard at Guantanamo Bay instead, where her mission is far from black and white. Surrounded by hostile jihadists and aggressive squadmates, she strikes up an unusual friendship with one of the detainees. A story of two people, on opposite sides of a war, struggling to find their way through the ethical quagmire of Guantanamo Bay. And in the process, they form an unlikely bond that changes them both.

While I wouldn't say Kristen Stewart is a great actress, I wonder if she would even receive half the hate she does if she steered clear of the TWILIGHT franchise. Regardless, this flick received a favorable review from us when it hit Sundance earlier this year (check it out here) and co-star Peyman Moaadi is said to do a phenomenal job. I doubt I'll be checking this out in theaters, but I'm definitely intrigued.

CAMP X-RAY will hit theaters on October 17, 2014.

Intriguing

I think she's no worse than Keanu Reeves or other "quiet" actors. Sometimes a role comes their way that just fits their personality perfectly like the first Matrix for Reeves and Into The Wild for Stewart. This low profile soldier character seems to be just that kind of role that might be perfect for her. I know tons of people who are very quiet and barely show any emotions which in most cases makes them even more fascinating. Think Josh Brolin in No Country, he was far from bad even though he

This probably would have been a good movie. But...she can't act to save her life. What a shame.

Her only fans are teen girls.

She isn't attractive, she has one mode "pouty", her monotone voice is hurtful to ears and she can't act.

Sadly she is in a movie that actually would have done well if they hired someone better for the role. I like Payman Maadi. Only teen girls see Kristen's movies, and I don't think any of them would be interested in something like this. Guys only know her from the horrible twilight series and that dumb snow white movie.

Does she get caught in a love triangle involving a fellow guard and a detainee?

Hardly a one note actress. Her performances outside of Twilight and Snow White have even terrific. People need to stop hating her for being in movies that any young actress would have signed on to be in.

I think she was okay, good even, in Panic Room, but it seems that as she's grown older she's just gotten so thoroughly bored and gives off a "can't be bothered" vibe in a lot of her performances, even outside of Twilight and Snow White.

I agree with Jedd the Jedi (except for Panic Room). She gave the same kind of terrible performance in Adventure land.
