Kristen Stewart in the First Trailer for 'Welcome to the Rileys'
Remember that movie I got yelled at for saying that Kristen Stewart looked "slutty" in it? Well, the official trailer for Welcome to the Rileys, starring Kristen Stewart as a stripper/prostitute, has debuted today on Yahoo. They're positioning it as the big "what's next" for Stewart (and the rest of the Twilight stars) but it's a much more mature role for her and not something every last Twilight tween should be running out and seeing. I saw it at Sundance and enjoyed it quite a bit, but it's not particularly a stand out flick. It has some sweet moments and it's a solid effort from Jake Scott (son of Ridley Scott). And it stars James Gandolfini!
Watch the official trailer for Jake Scott's Welcome to the Rileys:

On a business trip to New Orleans, a damaged man seeks salvation by caring for a wayward young girl.
Welcome to the Rileys is directed by up-and-coming filmmaker Jake Scott, a veteran music video and short films director making his second feature following Plunkett & Macleane in 1999. The screenplay was written by Ken Hixon (Inventing the Abbotts, City by the Sea). This premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year. Samuel Goldwyn Films is the most recent distributor for the film and is bringing Welcome to the Rileys to limited theaters starting on November 5th this fall.

Looks pretty good.

I was actually moved by the story though it seemed a tad generic. I'd give it a go.

Looks like a decent drama flick.

Doesn't look like it will completely suck...

Looks great. How did you get yelled at for saying she looks slutty as a stripper? lol

I really wanna see Stewart break away from the Twilight world and get back on track with her actual acting career, and this seems like a giant step in that direction. So long story short, I'm in.

It is screening at the Melbourne International Film Festival so I might have to run along and check it out!

@10 I agree. Although some may disagree, I thought she was fantastic in Adventureland. Funny thing is most Twilight fans hated that movie since they just didn't "get it."

This looks like a very touching film, one that is likely to make my wife tear up.

This looks pretty good and Leo and Gandolfini look just as good as her and Goodwin did on Treme. So Kristin Stewart has now worked with Deniro, Gandolfini, Sean Penn who am i leaving out?

#4 Who is Scott?
Me on Jul 9, 2010
Gandolfini is the best.
Ambient on Jul 9, 2010
Nevermind Scott is the director.
Me on Jul 9, 2010
This looks very powerful; I'm really looking forward to watching it. Great cast - the movie will also allow young(er) audiences to realise that Stewart is a very good actress, that wasn't born with the Twilight series.

the movie itself looks good, but I hope I can see Stewart "act" differently but so far it's like all her other movies but it's only the first trailer I have seen so there is still hope

Looks Great.. excited to see a film with some substance!
dom on Jul 9, 2010
That was pretty good. I'll definitely watch it.

looks good. in a weird way it kind of reminds me of "pontiac moon" with the crazy wife who wont leave home but then finds herself after chasing her husband.
AC on Jul 9, 2010
Wait so she gets naked in this right?
LinkfX on Jul 9, 2010
I actually think Kristen Stewart looks like she gives a good performance in this. She seems like the classic example of a good actress that only acts well when paired with the right director. I can't really figure out what this movie is supposed to be about, but it does look to be quite good. By the way, I don't really think Kristen Stewart looks slutty in this.
Alex on Jul 9, 2010
I think I may have cried a little bit.
lamar on Jul 9, 2010
I think this looks really good. I think it will make me cry.
Kristen on Jul 9, 2010
Looks really really good! Can't wait.
Film Fan on Jul 10, 2010
Something about Kristen Stewart I just cant stand. She always comes off as aloof and quite a dunce in interviews.
JimD on Jul 11, 2010
Really good concept... I really like how they make you feel like he's having an affair and BOOM... you're wrong.... Nicely done and a great trailer at that.
Ells on Jul 13, 2010
