First Look: Robert Pattinson Packs Some Heat in 'Cosmopolis' Photos
Though the star of The Twilight Saga has broken free from the series for films like Water for Elephants and Remember Me, audiences have yet to see Robert Pattinson outside of dramatic romances. It looks like the adaptation of Don DeLillo's novel Cosmopolis from director David Cronenberg should give him a chance to shine without any help from his glittery vampire alter ego, and now we have a few photos giving us our first look at Pattinson looking relatively pissed off, and also a somewhat glamorous shot of Sarah Gadon in the story of a newlywed billionaire who ends up losing his bride and his billions in a single day.
David Cronenberg (A History of Violence, Eastern Promises) is writing and directing this adaptation of Don DeLillo's novel following a wealthy asset manager (Robert Pattinson) who crosses the whole of Manhattan 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 potentially deadly 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 in the film which is slated for release sometime in 2012. Interested?

I hate Twilight, yet love Cronenberg. I do say that gun picture looks bad ass.

I think Twilight gave this guy a bad rep (with people other then screaming little girls, of course). But I think he did pretty good in Water for Elephants, and i'm curious to see him in a darker role....the pics look great btw.

The gun picture is good, but the second one down still looks like glittery vampire. He is going to have to bust out some amazing performances to get out of his type casting. He still gives off that glittery vibe.

He's amazing in Remember Me. The most shafted movie in recent memory which is sad because it's amazing.

nothing against rob pattinson, and if he is great in a cronenberg movie then more power to him. i trust cronenberg to know what he is doing, and this story is a real doozy. looking foward to seeing it play out.
