Cosmopolis Teaser Online
RPattz gets kinky... and weird

22 March 2012  |  Written by James White  |  Source: YouTube

Now that they’ve loosed the bonds of Twilight permanently (well, once Breaking Dawn - Part 2 is out at least), Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner are free once more to show what they can really do. So far, both Stewart and Pattinson are striking out in some intriguing directions and one of them now has footage online, with the teaser for David Cronenberg’s Cosmopolis hitting. Take a look below.

It’s a very brief little shot of pure Cronenberg weirdness, but from the looks of this, it could be Pattinson’s most interesting work in a while. Of course, we’ll have to wait and see the whole thing, but this is certainly something very different from most of the films he’s tried before.

It also marks the return of classic Cronenberg, as creatures roam New York, bullets puncture skin and people behave in extraordinary ways.

Pattinson plays a 28-year-old, narcissistic, cynical and paranoid billionaire who believes that people are out to get him. And he may not exactly be wrong. Unfortunately, he’s also largely stuck in a limo in the worst traffic Manhattan has suffered for years (plus… dinosaurs?)

Based on Don DeLillo’s novel, the film also features Paul Giamatti, Sarah Gadon, Jay Baruchel and Samantha Morton. Oh, and ignore that May date unless you live in France – there’s no set release for the film over here just yet.

interesting!
looks like its going to be very close to the Don DeLilo novel, which is full of ambiguous weirdness; perfect for Cronenberg! Oh and it's a rat moving down Time Square not a Dinosaur... :D More
