Watch: First Trailer For Guantanamo Bay Drama 'Camp X-Ray' Starring Kristen Stewart

“Never at any point have I sat down and plotted how I should proceed from here on. As soon as you start thinking about your career as a trajectory—like, as if you’re going to miss out on some wave or momentum—then you’re never doing anything for yourself anyway,” Kristen Stewart told Elle. “Then you’re truly, actually, specifically working for the public. You’re turning yourself into a bag of chips.” And so, we’ll see if Team KStew digs her latest flavor.

The first trailer has arrived for the actress’ Sundance drama “Camp X-Ray,” and there’s nary a vampire to be found. Instead, the movie focuses on the relationship that develops between a young female guard at Guantanamo Bay and a detainee. We haven’t seen this one yet, and while opinions were mixed, Stewart’s work got some good reviews out of Park City.

Payman Maadi, Lane Garrison, J.J. Soria and John Carroll Lynch co-star in the Peter Sattler-directed film. Watch the trailer below. “Camp X-Ray” opens on October 17th.

MICHAEL, how evil and what a hater you are! Why don't you say how you feel? You are a troubled dude! I guess you are the only one that feels that way because she has received excellent reviews from the experts in the business! Go to the highest building you can find and jump off!


She looks to be about 40 years old in that trailer. Really unflattering lighting, or her hard living has caught up with her. So different from the photoshopped pics in Elle.

I have to agree with Indiewire's first assessment of this turkey: "Camp X-Ray" is a journey to dullsville. Unfortunately, endless pacing and talking through a prison window imprisons the audience as well as the film's protagonists."

This film has a very limited appeal and Maadi acts circles around her. If this film gets any attention, it will be because of him. They already showed the film for free at USC and it failed to generate any buzz. Surprised it isn't going straight to VOD.


OMFG give My QUEEN an OSCAR NOW. Kristen baby you"'re the BESTEST. No one even compares. 3 Movies out this year, Camp XRAY, SILS MARIA, STILL ALICE. Triple Threat. Jennifer Lawrence. Watch out gurl. Kristen is gunning for you.


Terrific !!!


Very, very good, I want to see more, and now, why in October?
Great compliment to Kristen and Payman.


This looks great! And I normally like her independent films!


It looks absolutely fantastic! So intense! I can't wait. It was so worth the wait!
Kristen Stewart is absolutely amazing in that trailer with Payman Maadi.


Looks great! So excited!


Given the animus directed at her, she'll be denounced for even trying something beyond a vampire flick.
