Robert Pattinson Tracks Down James Dean in 'Life' Trailer

Life Robert Pattinson Still - H 2015

Pattinson's photographer character develops a complicated relationship with his subject, played by Dane DeHaan, in director Anton Corbijn's biopic.

Robert Pattinson has a feeling about James Dean in the forthcoming biopic Life.

In the film's first trailer, Pattinson plays Dennis Stock, a Life magazine photographer in the 1950s who develops an unlikely bond with a young Dean (Dane DeHaan).

A pivotal scene in the trailer involves Stock's work getting rejected by his boss because his photographs of Dean highlight debauchery.

"You think you're giving me something that's not already coming my way?" Stock asks Dean. "All I'm saying is, I got some ideas, and you're not going to be thinking those things about me when you see the pictures."

Director Anton Corbijn's (A Most Wanted Man) film also stars Joel Edgerton and Ben Kingsley. It currently does not have a U.S. release date.

The trailer can be seen below.
