Are you ready for some insanity? Well look no further, as David Cronenberg’s latest film COSMOPOLTIS has scored itself a teaser trailer as well as a one-sheet.
The teaser trailer is subtitled in French, and folks this is the Cronenberg of the past. Sure he toned down with A HISTORY OF VIOLENCE and so forth, but this is very reminiscent of his earlier works like VIDEODROME or THE FLY, and I couldn’t be happier! This looks like a film from the director I fell in love with and I simply cannot wait!
Concerning a US release, nothing has been announced yet. So far the film does have release dates for the following: France – May 23rd. Portugal – May31st, Netherlands – June 7th, Russia – June 14th, Brazil – August 17th, Australia – August 30th, Turkey – October 26th and Italy – December 12th.
COSMOPOLIS centers on Eric Packer (Pattinson). A financial wunderkind, Packer risks his entire fortune to bet against the yen on a tumultuous day. His deed puts him in the crosshairs for assassination in a drama that is a study of capitalism in a slightly futuristic metropolis. Most of the scenes in the book take place in the limousine that transports Packer from place to place.
The film stars Robert Pattinson, Sarah Gadon, Juliette Binoche, Paul Giamatti, Samantha Morton, Jay Baruchel, Mathieu Amalric, Emily Hampshire, Kevin Durand and Patricia McKenzie.
