Cosmopolis Synopsis
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.

Robert Pattinson Does Dirty Deals In New Cosmopolis Trailer Robert Pattinson Does Dirty Deals In New Cosmopolis Trailer
Bounding from the Harry Potter franchise into the Twilight movie series, pretty boy Robert Pattinson seemed to have the deck stacked against him in breaking out of the heartthrob roles he's built his career on. Lucky for him, David Cronenberg isn't worried that Twihard adoration will sully his work

We're dying to see what will result from the unlikely team of David Cronenberg and Robert Pattinson in Cosmopolis, the new film from the Canadian director that's premiering at Cannes this week. Will Cronenberg be able to help Pattinson give the kind of performance that hasn't been evident in any of the Twilight movies?

First Clip From Cronenberg's Cosmopolis Amps Up The Weirdness First Clip From Cronenberg's Cosmopolis Amps Up The Weirdness
So, it looks like pretty much none of this is happening in a real world, as much as it may look like authentic New York. Everything that Pattinson and the mysterious woman say feels arch and strained, and I promise that's not just Pattinson's stiff Twilight acting coming forward

If you're like us then your jaw has been on the floor since the first teaser trailer for David Cronenberg's Cosmopolis dropped one week ago. In addition to showing us a very different Robert Pattinson than the one we've gotten to know in the Twilight movies, the preview also showed us that this could be the film that brings Cronenberg back to his roots.

It's not so much a matter of figuring out what's going on here as figuring out what isn't-- in the incredibly short span of this teaser, we see Pattinson shoot a hole thorugh his own hand, have sex with a woman doggy style in a limo, saunter through an alley like he's looking for trouble, and maybe that's him stabbing the dude in the face

Robert Pattinson Smolders In First Poster For Cosmopolis Robert Pattinson Smolders In First Poster For Cosmopolis
Cronenberg’s film – an adaptation of a Don DeLillio novel – casts RPatz as Eric Packer, a multimillionaire traipsing across Manhattan in search of a decent haircut. Of course, the film will be about much more than that. There are deep-seeded discussions about sex, vulnerability and the damage inflicted by father-son conflicts. But the story promises to be long stretches of Pattinson in a tricked-out limo as he gambles on the financial futures of himself and those close to him.

I know Twilight fans don't like hearing this, but Stephanie Meyer's franchise is almost over. Breaking Dawn: Part 1 arrives in theaters on November 18th and then there is only one more movie, which will be hitting theaters this month next year. But fans aren't the only ones that have to start worrying about a Twilight-less world. The performers have to find a way to keep their acting careers going as well

Jay Baruchel Cast In David Cronenberg's Cosmopolis Jay Baruchel Cast In David Cronenberg's Cosmopolis
Whenever I think of Jay Baruchel, I think of the awkward, nervous guy from the Judd Apatow movies and Undeclared. Whenever I think of David Cronenberg, I think about movies like The Fly,Videodrome, and Scanners. Needless to say, it's a bit weird writing about them in the same story, but here we go.
