In a late March interview with News.com.au, writer/director David Cronenberg talked about his latest film Cosmopolis saying, “I don’t think anyone will be able to say they have seen a movie like that before – from anybody. Never mind me.” For anyone that has seen a Cronenberg film those are words likely to get you quite excited. We typically know what to expect from the director of The Fly, Scanners and Videodrome (to name only a few), but to contemplate the chance of seeing something like nothing we’ve ever seen before is always exciting and to know it is coming from Cronenberg is simply a multiplier.
With that said, following the film’s recent selection at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival, I have a second international trailer for the film I just received along with a gallery of images from the pic.
Set to hit theaters on May 23 in France, Cosmopolis is based on the novel by Don DeLillo and stars Pattinson as newly married billionaire Eric Packer who, over the course of one day, will cheat on his wife, be pursued by a stalker (Paul Giamatti), get attacked by a protester and gradually lose his entire fortune. Co-starring in the pic are Juliette Binoche as Didi Fancher, Sarah Gadon as Elise Shiffrin, Mathieu Amalric as Andre Petrescu, Jay Baruchel as Shiner, Kevin Durand as Torval, Emily Hampshire as Jane Melman, Samantha Morton as Vija Kinski and Patricia Mckenzie as Kendra Hays.
