If you'd have told us a few years ago that Robert Pattinson would be walking the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival, we would've said you were crazy. But the young actor is leading a youth contingent at the fest this year (along with his main squeeze Kristen Stewart and Zac Efron) who will be bringing new energy to a lineup that also boasts a solid list of Cannes veterans.
A few new images from David Cronenberg's "Cosmopolis" have landed online and they nice encapsulate the bonkers vibe the trailers have been giving off for the movie. As you know by now, the film is an adaptation of the novel by Don DeLillo which follows a young billionaire as he slowly makes he way through Manhattan in his limo, on the run from some guys who want to kill him, while his world begins to fall apart. Women, guns and uh, a haircut are all along the way along with Cronenberg's classic dip into the surreal adding an added measure of chaos.
We're definitely intrigued and we'll be eager to see how Pattinson holds up in Cronenberg's absurd world. Juliette Binoche, Paul Giamatti, Jay Baruchel and Sarah Gadon co-star in the film. [Kinopoisk/ShockYa]
