Let’s Take a Ride
It’s the (teaser) trailer we’ve all been waiting for; the first look at Cosmopolis. Director David Cronenberg and Robert Pattinson have teamed up to bring the Don DeLillo novel to the big screen, which follows a day in the life of egocentric multimillionaire, Eric Packer. I must warn you, this is thirty-three seconds of unadulterated brilliant, crazy moviemaking. The clip boasts a series of short scenes and indescribable visuals, causing us to question – forcing us to beg for more. It’s a damn tease, that’s what it is. Some will be surprised, as this is a complete departure for our favorite actor. A dark, catastrophic journey on the streets of a futuristic New York metropolis; salacious limousine rendezvous’; mangled scenes of violence. Others will be surprised, simply because this has all the telltale signs of being an amazing film. As of now, we have no exact confirmation when Cosmopolis will drive into theatres (in the U.S), but be sure to check back here for all the latest news and the premiere of the official full-length trailer. In the meantime, while we’re not-so patiently waiting, let’s get the conversation started. Head down to the comments and tell me what you thought about this insane trailer. Don’t worry. It’s okay. You may FanGirl as much as you need. I understand.
UPDATE: Cosmopolis will be shown in limited release (Isn’t that always the way?) starting August 17th, 2012!
