Eric Packer is having a bad day. With the financial markets in turmoil, unease in the streets, a marriage that's crumbling and more, his odyssey across Manhattan to get a haircut will take him on an adventure he never expected. Welcome to David Cronenberg's "Cosmopolis."

Starring Robert Pattinson alongside a strong supporting cast that includes Paul Giamatti, Juliette Binoche, Jay Baruchel, Samantha Morton, Mathieu Amalric and more, the adaptation of Don LeLillo's novel centers on a young whiz kid billionaire whose seemingly innocent journey in a limo takes on surprising dimensions. It's certainly a different kind of role than we've seen from "Twilight" franchise star Pattinson, and it's another interesting stylistic turn for Cronenberg. Premiering at the Cannes Film Festival this spring, our man on the ground loved the picture calling it, "both an exceptional adaptation and a remarkable work unto itself."

With the film hitting theaters next week, we've got two exclusive pics to get you primed, with a gun-wielding Eric Packer and a grafitti covered limo suggesting just how wild his journey is. "Cosmopolis" opens on August 17th and is recommended as one of our 10 Films To See In August.
