Visionary filmmaker David Cronenberg ('eXistenZ', 'A History of Violence') will be returning to his surreal and visceral best for his newly adapted project 'Cosmopolis'. The new drama from Cronenberg is based on the novel of the same name by American author Don DeLillo and stars 'Twilight' teenage crush Robert Pattinson as a multimillionaire on a 24-hour odyssey across Manhattan. Pattinson, who thankfully appears to be breaking away finally from his popular teenie bopper vampire role, features in the newly released teaser trailer naked along with nude co-star Patricia McKenzie and it looks fantastic! In spite of 'Cosmopolis' gaining a variety of international releases thus far which spread throughout 2012 there is no current word of a US or UK release date. But hopefully that'll change real soon. Pattinson is joined by Samantha Morton ('Minority Report'), Jay Baruchel ('The Apocalypse'), Paul Giamatti ('Shoot 'Em Up', 'John Dies at the End'), Kevin Durand ('Lost'), Juliette Binoche, Sarah Gadon, Mathieu Amalric and Emily Hampshire. Check out the new teaser, poster and the plot info below.
"'Cosmopolis' centers on Eric Packer (Pattinson). A financial wunderkind, Packer risks his entire fortune to bet against the yen on a tumultuous day. His deed puts him in the crosshairs for assassination in a drama that is a study of capitalism in a slightly futuristic metropolis. Most of the scenes in the book take place in the limousine that transports Packer from place to place."
