A New Trailer for David Cronenberg’s COSMOPOLIS Starring Robert Pattinson
I still have to read the plot summary after watching each new trailer [teaser 1, trailers] for David Cronenberg’s Cosmopolis. These trailers are busy to say the least, the movie itself looks great and as I’ve mentioned before Pattinson shines here and should get noticed for it.
Cosmopolis opens in limited release August 17th.
Unfolding in a single cataclysmic day, the story follows Eric Packer (Robert Pattinson)–a 28-year old financial whiz kid and billionaire asset manager–as he heads out in his tricked-out stretch limo to get a haircut from his father’s old barber, while remotely wagering his company’s massive fortune on a bet against the Chinese Yuan. Packer’s luxe trip across the city quickly becomes dizzyingly hellish as he encounters explosive city riots, aparade of provocative visitors, and is thrust into a myriad of intimate encounters. Having started the day with everything, believing he is the future, Packer’s perfectly ordered, doubt-free world is about to implode.
