Robert Pattinson plays a photographer who sees something in an unknown actor — an unknown actor who becomes very, very known — in the first trailer for the James Dean biopic Life.
Dane DeHaan plays Dean, while Pattinson stars as Dennis Stock, the photojournalist assigned to profile him for a story in Life magazine. The film follows the pair as they travel to Los Angeles, New York, and Dean’s home state of Indiana, developing a friendship along the way.
Directed by Anton Corbijn (A Most Wanted Man), the film also stars Ben Kingsley and Joel Edgerton.
Life doesn’t have a U.S. release date yet, but it’s slated to arrive in the U.K. on Sept. 26.
