Watch: Wilder US Trailer for David Cronenberg's 'Cosmopolis' Debuts
"Stun me to my DNA." Another brand new, energetic, epileptic US trailer has debuted on Apple for David Cronenberg's Cosmopolis, starring celebrity actor Robert Pattinson as a multi-billionaire who takes a day-long limo ride around New York City just to get a haircut. They really know how to sell this movie as everything that it's not, unfortunately. Like the international trailers before this, Cosmopolis is being sold as a wild, crazy, intense, dramatic experience, but it's anything but (my Cannes review). Although this trailer does give us a better glimpse at Paul Giamatti, whose scenes are some of the best moments from the film.
Watch the new official US trailer for David Cronenberg's Cosmopolis, originally from Apple:
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. eOne will be releasing Cosmopolis in limited theaters starting August 17th.
