If you have already seen previoustrailers for David Cronenberg’s Cosmopolis already, then you know the film is the director’s return to daring and pushing the envelope kind of filmmaking. The film also sees Robert Pattinson in a very dark role.
Pattinson fans who expect to be wooed by his sultry voice and deep eyes will probably be disappointed as he plays someone that we haven’t seen him play before.
Check out the new trailer below.
In Cosmopolis, Pattinson plays as a multibillionaire who goes on a limo ride through New York just to get a hair cut. Along the way he meets up with a variety of women, gets stalled by a protest, and finds out he is losing all his money as the clock ticks. Oh, there’s also the fact that he requests that he be shot and the fact the he even shoots himself. But this is by far the strangest trailer when compared to the previous ones released.
Based on Don DeLillo’s novel, Cosmopolis also stars Sarah Gadon, Kevin Durand, Jay Baruchel, Samantha Morton, Juliette Binoche, Paul Giamatti, and Mathieu Amalric. The film will open in limited theaters on August 17th.
