Perhaps outmatched, David Cronenberg's COSMOPOLIS is set to square off with EX2 on August 17th. A tough draw, but if you need help deciding which flick to see, cop a look at these new stills from COSMOPOLIS featuring guns, graffiti and Paul Giamatti in a greasy comb-over, ratty towel and a delicious look of dismay!
Starring Robert Pattinson, Juliette Binoche, Sarah Gadon, Paul Giamatti, Mathieu Amalric, Jay Baruchel and Kevin Durand - COSMOPOLIS places us in:
New York City, not-too-distant-future: Eric Packer, a 28 year-old finance golden boy dreaming of living in a civilization ahead of this one, watches a dark shadow cast over the firmament of the Wall Street galaxy, of which he is the uncontested king. As he is chauffeured across midtown Manhattan to get a haircut at his father's old barber, his anxious eyes are glued to the yuan's exchange rate: it is mounting against all expectations, destroying Eric's bet against it. Eric Packer is losing his empire with every tick of the clock. Meanwhile, an eruption of wild activity unfolds in the city's streets. Petrified as the threats of the real world infringe upon his cloud of virtual convictions, his paranoia intensifies during the course of his 24-hour cross-town odyssey.
