David Cronenberg's "Cosmopolis" Teaser Trailer

Check out the trailer for the new David Cronenberg film: "COSMOPOLIS" an adaptation of the Don DeLillo book about a 28 year-old billionaire who crosses Manhattan for a haircut. Sounds about right for a film with Sparkles McDouchenstein in it... But this is a Cronenberg movie so I'm not writing it off just yet.

Sourpuss Gets a Haircut (Working Title)

The story follows Eric Packer. A young billionaire financier who, whilst on his way to have his mop chopped, manages to lose all of his wealth by betting against the rise of the Yen.

Still sounds a bit dull, right? But like I said this is Cronenberg, I'm sure he can pull it off. 

Along the way, Packer's voyage is obstructed by traffic jams caused by a Presidential visit to the city, a funeral procession for a rap star and a full-fledged riot. He also has several chance meetings with his wife in very strange locations & is stalked by two men, a comical "pastry assassin" and an unstable "credible threat". 

OK, maybe there's a bit more to it than haircuts...

Now it sounds a bit more interesting... I'm sure it'll have all the hallmarks of a Cronenberg classic as well, so I'll definitely be giving this a watch. R-Twatz or not.

Check out the teaser below, and be prepared to come to terms with the fact that you might want to go see something starring the guy who played a less convincing Vampire than The Count from Sesame Street.

COSMOPOLIS stars Robert Pattinson, Juliette Binoche, Paul Giamatti, Samantha Morton, Mathieu Amalric, Kevin Durand & Sarah Gadon and is set for a May 23rd release in France. And over here? No release date set yet so who knows...
