Watch: First Dark 'Cosmopolis' Teaser Trailer with Robert Pattinson
"Come on, do it, flip the switch…" A very short, early teaser trailer has debuted online (via Awards Daily) for David Cronenberg's next new film, Cosmopolis, starring Robert Pattinson as a multi-millionaire who spends 24 hours crossing all of Manhattan in a limo. This definitely looks like there's a bit more than a limo in it, including plenty (and I mean plenty) of sex and violence and nightclubs and guns and everything else. "Bizarre occurrences and an authentic parade of crazy characters along the way, in a landscape that depicts the modern soul of the West at the end of the millennium." This looks wild, and it's only our very first tease!
Note: This footage is fairly uncensored and contains nudity, it is borderline NSFW so please be aware.
Watch the first teaser trailer for David Cronenberg's Cosmopolis, embedded from YouTube:
David Cronenberg (Scanners, Videodrome, A History of Violence, Eastern Promises) writes/directs this adaptation of Don DeLillo's novel following a wealthy asset manager (Robert Pattinson) who crosses the whole of Manhattan across 24 hours in a stretch limo just for a haircut. However, the guy can't get a break as he's repeatedly delayed by a presidential motorcade, anti-globalization demonstrations, and a celebrity funeral. But his biggest problem comes when he must deal with the repercussions of a risky bet against the yen on a bad day for the market that may cause him to lose all his money and his newlywed bride. Sarah Gadon, Kevin Durand, Jay Baruchel, Samantha Morton, Juliette Binoche, Paul Giamatti, and Mathieu Amalric also star. Expected release sometime in summer (maybe May), but no exact date set yet.
