Kristen Stewart graduates from vampire chaser to hooker in Welcome to the Rileys trailer

07.09.2010

Determined not to be tied down to the TWILIGHT series she so obviously disdains, Kristen Stewart is trying to take on new roles to show her range. Whether it’s banging Ryan Reynolds in ADVENTURELAND or getting a bad haircut as Joan Jett in THE RUNAWAYS, the girl certainly is trying.

Her next venture is WELCOME TO THE RILEYS, where she plays a young stripper/hooker who is looked after by a married couple (James Gandolfini and Melissa Leo) who has recently lost their own teenage daughter. It’s an interesting trailer, and I really dug Gandolfini in it especially.

As for Stewart's acting prowess? The trailer promises via a quote that she is “electric” but I didn’t quite catch any sparks on first glance. Check it out below and see for yourself.

Extra Tidbit: Could be worthwhile, but again, itís one of those trailers where I feel like Iíve practically seen the whole movie.

people are so fast to criticize Kristine Stewart because they don't like the twilight series and simply because she starred n it. Twilight is not a bad series if that's your type of movie and/or your a teenager. I bet if Kristine Stewart was never in Twilight, people wouldn't be so fast to criticize er. I think she acts great

She acts how she's suppose to in Twilight, i doubt any of yall know or care but either way dont consider her a bad actress because of shitty dialog and an awful book.

Wild Thing

I can't help but picture Gandolfini as a big furry Wild Thing every time I hear his voice. Even if he's standing right there!

Thank you for pointing out how desperate this girl is to be a "cool" actress. Can't wait for the end of the Twilight series of movies...and with it Kristen Stewart's career.

Kristen Stewart is a decent actress for her age group.

But I would probably only see this because of James Gandolfini.

Or if she gets naked.

I'm not saying what kind of actress Stewart is, but based solely on this and my prior knowledge with Twilight, this doesn't look like an earnest effort. To me, she still seems like she's playing the sulky emo-teen except this time featuring dark, smeary makeup to let you know she's serious. And she doesn't make a convincing hooker. I'll pass.

Stewart's "electric" in it, eh? Is that Hollywood-speak for "her performance was so lifeless we occasionally used a defibrillator on her to check she hadn't died on set"?

Hollywood Rule #2,954:

Every actress must play a hooker at some point in her career. This film might be good, but yeah the trailer pretty much gave away the entire plot.

I'm pumped for it just for Gandolfini. This trailer was kind of weak though. Stewart still looks to do nothing but blink and bite her lip, but I'll give her a chance.

Don't forget Melissa Leo here (the OCD wife). She's a pretty remarkable actress, from what I've seen of her in Frozen River and Treme. She and Gandolfini sort of cancel out Stewart, in my opinion -- though the rebellious, moody stripper seems to fit her quite well.

Whatever happened to trailers that ran a minute and a half, tops? Or am I being delusional ever thinking they were that short? Still, nice to see Gandolfini trying out some new roles.

Another example

This is exactly what I hate about most trailers nowadays. However, it does seem like a nice flick with good performances, so I'm interested.

ugh

this movie just screams Oscar Bait. hopefully the only nomination this film gets Gandolfini because he deserves a nom for his career. (the actress i'm not familiar with). and Kristen Stewart has a long way to go still to make up for terrible performance in Twilight.

this movie looks generic and depressing
