Watch: Kristen Stewart Gets Tested In New Trailer For ‘Camp X-Ray’

Watch: Kristen Stewart Gets Tested In New Trailer For 'Camp X-Ray'

After Robert Pattinson finally washed the stench of “Twilight” off his reputation via his excellent performance in “The Rover,” it appears that Kristen Stewart’s up next with her role as a soldier assigned to Guantanamo Bay who makes friends with a detainee in graphic designer Peter Sattler’s first feature, “Camp X-Ray”. It should help that her co-star is Peyman Moaadi, who gave one of this decade’s best performances in “A Separation.” And a new trailer has arrived.

Written and directed by Peter Sattler, the film follows a young woman who’s deployed as a guard at Guantanamo Bay and chronicles the unlikely friendship she develops with one of the detainees. Even though the critical reaction to “Camp X-Ray” during its festival run has been mixed, many critics found much to admire in Stewart’s performance. And long as she doesn’t have a line as dumb as “you named my baby after the Lock Ness Monster!?,” we should be fine.

“Camp X-Ray” opens on VOD and in theaters on October 17th. Watch below.

@ You asked for it

LOL @ Benedick Cumberbath.

How did Mission:Blacklist work out for him? Indies are more prone to falling apart than bigger movies. It’s the nature of the business. Your ignorance is sad.

If you’re going to call out a dumb line, at least use correct spelling. It’s "Loch Ness", not "Lock Ness". You can google it.

Confident people enjoy other people’s successes. Insecure people resent other people’s successes, snark on them, and try to tear them down. Kristen and Rob are both doing well. It’s YOUR insecurities that are showing, Playlist . . .

Nothing against KStew personally, but after watching several interviews with her, her co-stars and the director, this film is pure fiction and offensive to 99.9% of all those who served at Gitmo. "Befriending a detainee" is considered "fraternization," and would get a soldier relived and possibly prosecuted under the UCMJ (military legal code). I understand the friendship as a vehicle for the story, but it won’t play with most military and puts KStew in a tough spot. Acting is probably fine, but sympathizing with bad guys isn’t cool. A soldier’s job is to do their duty, not make nice with detainees.

You Asked For It

No, Kristen Stewart is the one who is jobless. She has nothing lined up, nothing at all. Pattinson has 4 films in the pipeline, as you well know. He will go from Idol’s Eye with Robert DeNiro to Childhood of a Leader to Hold On To Me with Carey Mulligan to Lost City of Z with Benedick Cumberbath. All his films get made, they don’t fall apart on him the way hers do. He’s never been out of work for 18 months because he got caught cheating with a married director. You should light some candles and pray she gets another job. Stewart films announced and not made: (1) Cali; (2) Focus; (3) Big Shoe.; (4.) SW2, (5.) Lie Down in Darkness.

She she got caught cheating with a married man for cheap thrills. It hasn’t helped her career at all, she can’t get a job with a big studio now. Wives of directors and actors don’t want their men anywhere near her.

How on earth does Robert Pattinson have anything to do with Camp X-Ray? He has nothing to do with Kristen any longer or haven’t you been keeping up with his latest dating news?

Kristen has had 3 films which she has had critical acclaim for this year: CXR, Clouds of Sils Maria and Still Alice which Sony is promoting her for an Oscar.

I don’t know what Twilight has to do with this or Robert. Although you insist on underestimating her talents (see you own reviews) even back to On the Road which your review of her in that film was a joke.

You all either are blind or just hate this young lady because you are completely out of step with the majority of the industry. But keep staying in your "Kristen Stewart Twilight hating" lane. geesh…

Sady

Seriously stop with the ex BS , you people promote the hate amongst fans.

Let's try again

Playlisty I think it’s time to fulfil your real destiny and desire and re brand as a gossip blog, your luck of professionalism, integrity and tendency to write your reviews more like a gossip then neutral professional opinion clearly shows that you are in the wrong occupation.

Kristen is doing great why bring up pratz? I hope she gets an Oscar as it is well and truly deserved.

Gilliam

Why such a snarky article? Both have gotten great reviews for their latest movies, and readers of your blog know it. Please don’t insult the intelligence of your readers. And that much maligned Twilight made billions of dollars.

Huh

Robert Pattinson is jobless and his career is dying. I woiuold ashamed to be linked to him. Stop promoting him.
