David Cronenberg's Cosmopolis lets some new images be revealed

Last week, we were all stabbed in the eye and shot in the hand by the wild teaser for David Cronenberg's COSMOPOLIS, which made Robert Pattinson look surprisingly cool and gave us a brief but potent dose of Cronenbergian weirdness. Today I come bearing some more treats from the film in the form of a handful of stills.

Nothing mind-bending here, although a sexed-up Juliette Binoche and a paranoid, gun-wielding Paul Giamatti should suffice for now. What we're really waiting on is a domestic release date; it starts rolling out across the globe in May.

Here's the official synopsis for the film: 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. Packer starts to piece together clues that lead him to a most terrifying secret: his imminent assassination.

In addition to Pattinson, COSMOPOLIS stars Juliette Binoche, Paul Giamatti, Kevin Durand, Sarah Gadon, Jay Baruchel, and Samantha Morton. Yo can check out its official website right HERE.

Extra Tidbit: The blond cutie in the image above is Canadian actress Sarah Gadon, who will soon be seen in Mary Harron's THE MOTH DIARIES.
