New Images From Kristen Stewart’s Guantanamo Bay Drama ‘Camp X-Ray’

New Images From Kristen Stewart's Guantanamo Bay Drama 'Camp X-Ray'

While the franchise “Snow White & The Huntsmanappears to be moving on without her, Kristen Stewart appears to be less interested in that kind of stuff anyway. She recently hit Cannes with Olivier Assayas‘ “Clouds Of Sils Maria,” she spent last month shooting “American Ultra” with Jesse Eisenberg, and has the drama “Still Alice” coming as well. And in case you forgot, she kicked off the year at Sundance with “Camp X-Ray,” and some new images from the film have arrived.

The movie is written and directed by Peter Sattler, features Payman Maadi, Lane Garrison, J.J. Soria and John Carroll Lynch, and follows the relationship that emerges between a Guantanamo Bay detainee and a young female guard. We didn’t get a chance to see the movie in Park City, but reviews were mixed, however, Stewart did get good notices for her performance.

IFC Films has U.S. rights for this one, but no date has been set just yet. Pics below.

This movie seems so good! Can’t wait to watch it in the Philippines.I really really like Ms. Kristen Stewart since in Twilight!! ☺☺♂♂☻

I hope our theatre gets Camp XRay. Kristen is a kick ass actress! I am extremely a huge fan of hers.


72 comments about a micro budget indie that they've shown for free at USC and that generated no buzz at all. This girl is infamous for her private life, not her acting ability or her films. Her fans are over invested in her private life and they don't go to see her movies.

All of her indies have flopped, including On The Road, which was based on an iconic book. If you can't attract an audience for that movie, which had other stars in it, you sure aren't going to be able to attract an audience for this film. If her fans really wanted to support her, they would go see her films and stay out of the comments section.


preocupada se nota que esta perdida del tema no entiendo por que la gente no se concreta en opinar de acuerdo al tema…. que tiene que ver una cosa con la otra aqui se dice de KRISTEN no de nadie mas ni de otro tema si no tienen nada bueno que decir no entre opinar nadie te obliga parece que tienen tanto interes en KRIS siempre atentos todo sobre ella digo si yo no soy fan de alguien que no me gusta me vale lo que digan de esa persona pero la envidia es grande asi de sencillo


Jesse, I saw him in now you see me, and social network very good, they've worked together before in Adventure land, but weren't they drug addicts in that film ? and she will be in this one ? I saw pictures of her with a bong and people were rowing if it was for the film , hasn't she been a drug addict I a few of he films ? I've only seen a couple, I'm not judging anyone, but I have seen people ruin their lives with addiction using drink, drugs when theyre not coping, I hope it is dealt with sensibly ad not shown that its just a fun harmless thing to do , it's not if you don't know anyone personally you only have to look at the papers/ celeb blogs so may famous people use drugs to cope with their problems and have lost their lives or others have died or had their lives ruined because of them,Kristen admitted in an interview she took drugs , she was annoyed media was putting so much attention to it, the article supported her, but a recent article she says "I don't think I would do well on drugs" don't understand if she saying she didn't do well or she didn't take drugs when previously she did I can see her not haveing the article removed if it wasnt true what her PR is for , then shes made a few films her character is a drug addict, not something to encourage, especially with still having an impressionable audience from Twi, recently a pop group posting pictures of smoking pot, young teens then tweeted they would try it as they took it.


ansiosa por ver todas sus peliculas ella es la mejor hermosa y talentosa


Saw this film at a screening with the director… Fantastic! Can't wait for the world to see what a great film this is. Stewart & Payman are hypnotic. Such great chemistry, I didn't want it to end.


lot of her fans are claiming "poor Kristen was used as his beard for years" claiming hes gay and shes helping to protect him, it shouldnt matter if he was, he was even accused in articles of being inapropriate with Justin Bieber and he hadnt even met him at that time,well if thats the case she hasnt done very well because shes nastier about him than anyone, yeah the statement of "I have an English boyfriend"while she was filming SWATH with an English director she was then caught out with, Budapest, he wasnt the only English guy she could have been going to see, Tom was with him and then was in OTR with her,everytime he promotes a film sites suggest hes gay which will prejudice some people against him, "his beard " suggestion is complete BS, and theyre assuming it couldnt possibly be the other way round?


Kristen is a great woman. I hope that she and Rob will reunites. Can't wait for Robsten Reunion.


I can't wait to watch Kristen's all movies! I love KTEW! SWATH will regret without KSTEW IN IT!!


A beautiful woman is Stewart, she is blessed, her talent is such a large dimension. She loses weight for her film, she cut her hair for another film, she´s gained weight for Sils Maria, she loves writing and poetry, sings and composing music, directing music video and small films she´s to learn. I have great admiration for her and I look forward to her new movies.


They are no long be together anymore, but I am still check on them every once awhile. I still see their both names on the articles together.


I like both Kristen and Rob. I wish thing would stay the same for them, but people changed because of the one mistake that caused the 4 years of their relationship so everything fall apart. But I don't bring either one of them. I don't think that is our right to judge either one of Kristen or Rob, and said nasty words to that them, especially Kristen. I like romantic movies so I only watch Twilight, and Snow White and the Huntsman. I wish Kristen continue to be in Snow White and Huntsman, but she no longer in the movie anymore. I am sad to hear that.


iwant to see this movie


Looks intense! This movie intrigues me. I'll definitely catch it at my local indie theater.


I'm looking forward to all Kristen movie. Hoping all of them coming to my town cinema.
I really want to see The Rover but I couldn't make the trip by myself. I like both Rob and Kristen.

So many Rob only fans here on Kristen movie article but NONE at Rob's latest movie article MTTS also by Playlist. Only 51 Tweet and 1 Comment (which by the comment a Mia W fan). Where is the SUPPORT for Rob?


de verdad que esta gente como la sigue a KRIS estan pendiente de ella en todo… es que eso hace una verdadera diva por eso ella es la mejor.. la nota es de Kris no de Rob pero ya que lo nombran es verdad que en CANNES recibio buenas criticas pero la realidad es otra el dia de su estreno la pelicula Rover no tuvo acogida la gente no la fue haber incluso no estaba entre las favorita del publico..en cuanto a Jennfer L muchos la consideran mala actriz que no se merecia el oscar que es sobrevalorada, ella sobreactuacion y tienen toda la razon parece niña boba actuando


Seems like a worthwhile endeavor to me for this film to shed light on Gitmo. The film got mixed reviews. Some resented that film did not take sides, but I think it is difficult to sort out. Some thought it slow, but the director tried to portray this realistically. Most critics praised the acting of both Kristen and Payman in this film.


It would be nice if the fans on both sides were happy and grateful, how many great films we can see from these two actors Kristen and Robert.
It's great how many movies coming, some of us will appeal, than others. I'm excited to see movies, that it's is not a silly romantic drivel. That's why I like the way Kristen Stewart goes.
She has amazing movies coming.


A terrible hatred, and those, who brought everywhere, is Pattinson crazy fans. The worst thing is, that they go on and on with their prepared comments on other articles and they are everywhere. Still my strong feeling, that his team is ready to RP, that the system is functioning as advertising, destroy this young actress Stewart.
I am appalled how the world does not work for us women.
Movie Camp X Ray looks absolutely fantastic. I'll see.

ayesha pattinson

Kristen looking awesome . I watched every every movie of robsten


I see a lot of people here got lost … i thought this was a movie blog not a gossip/tabloid blog( cough.. cough.. GC? ..HL? ) . And i must agree for those rude commenters who dislike her so much they seem to go out of their way to read anything and everything about her . LOL. ..Anyway i wish people would stop comparing movies , The Rover was a good movie Guy and Robert did a fantastic job in it . It's unfortunate that some people are so biased toward these two actors that they won't even give it a chance . I hope Camp X-ray get released in some theatres i would definitely see it . It looks like a very interesting story, don't get me wrong i do like my summer popcorn type movies but lately all of them are pretty much the same , very formulaic not much depth story wise but entertaining just the same .This summer was not that great anyway statistics shows box office was lower this time around compared to last year. All of the noises that the idiots are making is irrelevant to me all it does is show their ignorance , and i'm quite sure either Pattinson or Stewart do not cares about that crap . They are just fine and they will continue to entertain us (actual moviegoers not fanatics ) with their work on the big screen . So haters be damned !!! LOL.


Have you read the reviews for The Rover? Mostly amazingly good, particularly Rob's performance. Even some of the mixed reviews said he was fantastic. Have you read the reviews for Clouds of Sils Maria? Also mostly amazingly good, particularly Kristen's performance. Two people who have been relentlessly mocked are now getting hugs amounts of praise for their work. This is a GOOD thing, people. It's not a contest between them, and anyone who thinks it is is an idiot.


RPutz's movie is No 16 on the list of worst wide openings. Ouch.


Is this what's known as a micro budget indie? Less than $2 million budget? Free screenings on college campuses looks like they are desperate to drum up some buzz for this.

I saw the story about how Universal has dropped Kristen Stewart from the next Snow White movie — ouch! CXR sure is a come down from those big budget movies she used to do. I guess that's what happens when you have an affair with your married director. Good thing she seems happy making these little obscure movies.

I am certainly looking forward to watch every Kristen's movie as it graced the shores of Malaysia. Love Kristen.


Was lucky and got to see this movie at a special World Affairs Council screening at my school. Not what I expected at all – was anticipating being dragged through the Guantanamo prison mud and be witness to torture but what I saw was something both sweet and sad (and surprisingly funny at times) that didn't try to shove a one-sided POV down my throat. GITMO's always lurking there in the news but don't think most of us pay any attention. The fact that I enjoyed this movie as much as I did tells me Sattler did something right. All the acting was great. Recommend it.


I can't wait to see this movie


As usual rpattz fans are so pressed and full of hater in Kristen's article lol so embarrassing and pathetic!


Every time Rputtz fans comment, they reveal how ignorant, hateful and stupid they are. Every single time. No wonder they have the worst reputation in the world


@YahooMoviesUK Robert Pattinson Suffers Another Major Flop


Twilight fans didn't arrive in force for Robert Pattinson's The Rover-it's a box office flop

Kristen is divine

She has received great reviews for her Valentine, the film Clouds of Sils Maria, which coming this year, as for CXR and Cole.
Her talent is huge, she is very creative and talented young woman.



With $481,214, 'The Rover' had the worst opening for a movie at 600+ theaters since 'The Oogieloves' in 2012:


She has the same expression in every single photo. Her reviews for CXR were mixed as well, they weren't all glowing.

“The reason she doesn’t fit in with them isn’t that she’s just about the only woman. It’s that they really seem like soldiers, and she seems like…Kristen Stewart trapped in Guantanamo Bay.” — Owen Gleiberman with Entertainment Weekly.

“Kristen Stewart’s performance is dead in the water, the basic and uninspired juxtaposition between the two leads fails to work as some dramatic commentary and feels amateur, and the eventually uncomfortable focus on the emotional trials of Cole (over Ali) comes across as tone-deaf.” — Critic Kate Erbland

“It is impossible to believe that Stewart’s character, at least as portrayed by the actress, has gone through any kind of military training. Camp X-Ray needs more depth and less Kristen Stewart.” — Filmschoolrejects


Rputtz Fans Are Still Pressed here? poor Rob, no one cares about The Rover FLOP!


These nasty comments about Stewart are from Rob Pattz fandom obsessed to hate Kristen in every article about her! They are losers!

tosyn anthony

cant wait to see d movie,i hope to see it in Nigeria,seeing d pictures alone knows its going to be interesting.Love u kristen,u're d best


Same mopey face…same mopey acting..this will go straight to video….she will nevet make anything but crappy indie films…this movie did'nt even make it to cannes cuz it sucks..swath 2 dropped her because she's toxic….she can't carry a big studio film…she's a joke….my money is on true talent and great personality…jennifer lawrence…she is biggest movie star actress on the planet….and girl can act her ass off…oscars,sags,g.g,critics choice and on and on….o right kristen has 800 mtv awards from those twitwits….


This movie sound interesting and slightly disturbing. Those are so intense pictures. I hope this movie gets released in my city. Camp X Ray, Clouds of Sils Maria, Still Alice and American Ultra sound more interesting than Snow White Part 2.


I am looking forward to seeing Kristen onscreen again!


This movie sounds amazing and I am so looking forward to its release in theatres. I have read that Peter Sattler mentioned at the UC screening that Camp Xray will be released in late October this year. I have a couple of friends who attended the Sundance Festival and saw Camp Xray and really was amazed by it, especially the performance of Kristen and Payman.


Really hope it comes to a theater in the Raleigh, N.C. area so I get to see Kristen Stewart again. Kristen, You Rock!! Camp X-Ray looks good.


I would love to see the film in Greece!
Please please please bring it soon!


Can't wait to see this in theaters too! It was one of my favorites out of this year's Sundance festival


I love to see this film in our theatre in the Philippines. I hope we are given a chance to see this amazing film that would make you think and feel.


This movie looks good!


Can't wait to see this movie!
