Robert Pattinson is a man on the run in the flashy new Cosmopolis trailer

David Cronenberg's COSMOPOLIS has been polarizing critics worldwide, which is just what I would expect from the director of VIDEODROME, CRASH and A HISTORY OF VIOLENCE. A new trailer for the film has landed online and it shows a lot more than Robert Pattinson pimpin' around in a limo. Watch it below.

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.

COSMOPOLIS will receive a limited US release on August 17th, starring Robert Pattinson, Juliette Binoche, Sarah Gadon, Paul Giamatti, Mathieu Amalric, Jay Baruchel and Kevin Durand.

Extra Tidbit: The lovely Sarah Gadon (above) also appeared in Cronenberg's previous film, A DANGEROUS METHOD.
