It was announced last night a new trailer (via Allocine) for David Cronenberg’s Cosmopolis would be debuting just before the official Cannes Film Festival line-up was announced and here it is. With only a few hours to go, the trailer also confirms Cosmopolis is one of the fest’s official selections, which means rabid fans will be able to storm the Croisette as Robert Pattinson walks the red carpet.
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, Mathieu Amalric, Samantha Morton, Sarah Gadon, Jay Baruchel, Kevin Durand and Emily Hampshire.
Watch the trailer directly below and hang out for a bit, leave some comments and then click over and check out my predictions for the 2012 Cannes line-up and around 2 AM PST the official line-up will be announced giving us even more to talk about.
