First Look: Early Promo Art for David Cronenberg's Cosmopolis

May 14, 2010


No more than two days after it was announced, in Cannes, that both Colin Farrell and Marion Cotillard would be starring in the upcoming David Cronenberg film Cosmopolis, this brand new piece of promo art appeared in the latest daily festival edition of Variety. The two-page spread shows the limo that Farrell rides in as the multi-millionaire asset manager who crosses the whole of Manhattan in that limo just for a haircut. There's not much to this yet because it hasn't started shooting (and won't until March 2011 after Cronenberg finishes A Dangerous Method) but it's still pretty damn cool to see. I just totally love the sleek blue design.

David Cronenberg's Cosmopolis

Taking place over a 24-hour period, in the midst of his pursuit of this haircut, this hot shot attempts to run business as usual from his limo but his finances are thrown into chaos as a bet he makes against the value of the yen blows up in his face. He also runs into delays including a presidential motorcade, anti-globalization demonstrations, and a celebrity funeral. I'm really looking forward to this just based on the concept and the fact that Cronenberg is helming it, but we've got a long time to wait until we see it, so even though this may look great, it's not coming anytime soon. We'll keep you updated on this and Cronenberg's other new film.

it's based on the don delillo book of the same name. i honestly don't see how this can be turned into a movie. especially one by cronenberg. i mean (spoiler alert) not a single head blows up in this.

I trust Cronenberg with this. Also, I love the Panamera in this shot. It looks awesome.

Im sorry, but this is weak. From a design standpoint and as a way to pique interest for a movie. "There's not much to this yet..." Obviously. What a crappy ad...and for what?

Dumb. That "plot" is pretty damn stupid. As a novel, I can see the appeal. But fuck this as a movie. I mean, seriously? Lol. This sounds incredibly dull.
