David Cronenberg's Cosmopolis gets MPAA rating and U.S. release date

David Cronenberg's COSMOPOLIS is finally headed to the U.S... later this summer. The film has received a release date here in the states by eOne, and that date is AUGUST 17th. That's right, it's a showdown between Robert Pattinson and Sly Stallone's EXPENDABLES!

Naturally, the 8/17 release is limited; it will just be visiting NY and LA on that day, but the rest of the country should fear not - it will be expanding gradually throughout the remainder of August and then into September. (It has already opened in parts of Europe, and will in fact open in most of the world before it comes to the U.S.)

Meanwhile, the film will be rated R (no surprise there) for some strong sexual content including graphic nudity, violence and language.

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.
