The first trailer for David Cronenberg’s Cosmopolis has emerged and it looks like the director has returned to his reassuringly disturbing ways with a dark, twisted adaptation of Don DeLillo’s novel.
Robert Pattinson is set to give the performance of his career as young billionaire Eric Packer, who has a very eventful day.
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.
After the safe and tedious A Dangerous Method, and straightforward thrillers Eastern Promises and A History of Violence, it’s great to see Scanners, Videodrome and The Fly director Cronenberg back to what he does best.
Trailer is a little bit NSFW, with brief sex scenes and violence.
