New Photos: Robert Pattinson & Sarah Gadon In David Cronenberg's 'Cosmopolis'

Robert Pattinson Cosmopolis
David Cronenberg's Freud-Jung tale "A Dangerous Method" starring Michael Fassbender, Viggo Mortensen and Keira Knightley has barely been released (check out our review Venice here) but it looks like marketing for his next feature, an adaptation of Don Delillo's urban-drama "Cosmopolis" is already underway.

New photos of the film's stars Robert Pattinson and Sarah Gadon have been unveiled at the Lisbon and Estoril Film Festival with what looks (or, really, sounds) like a trailer also leaking. We'd advise to totally avoid the video as it's a pathetic excuse for even a leaked video but at least there's interesting new glimpses at Pattinson and Gadon, who growing to be a Cronenberg-regular after recently teaming with Cronenberg's son David on his directorial debut "Antiviral" and featuring in "A Dangerous Method" as well.

"Cosmopolis" follows the story of Pattinson's Eric Packer, a 28-year-old multi-billionaire finance guru who drives around Manhattan in a high-tech, pimped out limo in order to get a haircut, with many interruptions along the way. Set within a 24-hour period, most of the novel takes place in his limousine and we assume the film will do the same. During his day, Packer loses millions of dollars for his clients by telling them to bet against the yen, and then is stalked by two men seemingly seeking revenge. Obsessed with sex, Packer spends the day cheating on his wife and trying to outwit the men that are after him.

Robert fucking Pattinson, you say? Fear not: Cronenberg has surrounded the actor with a vast array of talent with Juliette Binoche, Paul Giamatti, Mathieu Amalric and Samantha Morton all co-starring. Check out the leaked trailer below as well as footage of the press conference where Cronenberg, Giamatti and Gadon discuss "Cosmopolis." [via BleedingCool]
