Hot off the news that the flick will be making its premiere at Cannes this year, the folks behind the movie released two new trailers that give us a good idea of what we can expect when David Cronenberg’s latest hits theaters. In true Cronenberg fashion, “Cosmopolis” looks like it will be dark, surreal and all around fantastic.
It also is Pattinson’s first chance to really flex his acting muscles in something that’s not a romantic film, a genre that he’s been somewhat pigeonholed in ever since “Twilight” first came out. Between this and “Bel Ami” being released this year, we’re looking forward to seeing a side of the 25-year-old actor that we’ve never seen before.
Twitch has the first teaser, which shows Pattinson as stock market multi-millionaire Eric Packer driving around Manhattan in his customized limo. We get a tease of some of the many colorful characters he’ll meet along his journey, including ones played by Paul Giamatti, Sarah Gadon, Samantha Morton, Juliette Binoche and Jay Baruchel.
The second trailer comes at us from Ropes of Silicon. This one does a much better job of highlighting how surrealist and freaking crazy “Cosmopolis” will likely end up being. Like we said before, this film is going to bring out a side of Pattinson we’ve never seen before, and we can’t wait to meet it.
