I’ll admit that, upon hearing David Cronenberg had cast Robert Pattinson in his upcoming mind-bender “Cosmopolis”, I scoffed. Literally. I think I made some sort of seriously obnoxious sound whilst rolling my eyes in an overly melodramatic fashion. Turns out I may have jumped to one insanely misguided conclusion. The first trailer, which can be found below, completely blew me away. It’s definitely a lot darker and much stranger than I had anticipated. Which, of course, is a good thing, because when Cronenberg does weird, you never really know what you’re going to get.
Before proceeding, please consume this synopsis:
Eric Packer risks his entire fortune to bet against the yen on a tumultuous day, a move that puts him in an assassin’s crosshairs as he moves from place to place in a limo in a study of capitalism that takes place in a slightly futuristic metropolis.
Need more incentive? The film also features Samantha Morton, Jay Baruchel, Paul Giamatti, Kevin Durand, and Juliette Binoche. Whenever you’re ready, you can find the trailer hanging out below. And while it doesn’t contain anything overly offensive, you may not want to watch it at work. Unless you work out of your home. In which case, have at it.
