If you thought the first two trailers brought the crazy, the first clip for David Cronenberg‘s Cosmopolis continues the trend.

Also starring Samantha Morton, Juliette Binoche, Paul Giamatti and Kevin Durand, one can see the clip below via Allocine.
Update: Two more clips have arrived thanks to CommeauCinema.
