With a Cannes premiere almost certain, we’ve got our first look at David Cronenberg‘s Cosmopolis with a new international teaser. The director came back last year after a five-year absence with the disappointing A Dangerous Method, but judging from this quick tease, he is back to doing what he does best. Based on the novel by Don DeLillo, the film stars Robert Pattinson and Sarah Gadon in the story of a young multi-billionaire named Eric Parker who journeys across Manhattan in his luxurious, hi-tech stretch limo to get a haircut.
Following just one day in his life, the cast also includes Samantha Morton, Juliette Binoche, Paul Giamatti and Kevin Durand. The teaser below gives us a barrage of crazy imagery and not only tells us that Pattinson is certainly game to do just about anything in a post-Twilight world, but that Cronenberg is back to creating the unpredictable. Check it out below.
