Hot on the heels of the announcement that David Cronenberg’s wildly anticipated adaptation of Don DeLillo’s “Cosmopolis,” starring Robert Pattinson as a disaffected non-vampire millionaire on a very strange 24-hour odyssey through Manhattan, has secured a June 15th release date in England, we now get a British trailer and poster for the picture. Neither are terribly new, keeping with the already-seen promotional materials. But that doesn’t mean we’re any less stoked.

Hot on the heels of the announcement that David Cronenberg’s wildly anticipated adaptation of Don DeLillo’s “Cosmopolis,” starring Robert Pattinson as a disaffected non-vampire millionaire on a very strange 24-hour odyssey through Manhattan, has secured a June 15th release date in England, we now get a British trailer and poster for the picture. Neither are terribly new, keeping with the already-seen promotional materials. But that doesn’t mean we’re any less stoked.

Courtesy of HeyUGuys, we get the new British trailer, which is almost identical to that initial teaser that was released a couple of months ago – flashes of weirdness, Pattinson grumbling, a giant rat, title cards that are reminiscent of the throbbing opening credits to Gasper Noe’s “Enter the Void” (and not, as Hey U Guys surmises, an ode to “Drive”). It’s not quite as “out there” as that initial international teaser was, but this is Britain we’re talking about -- the entire country shuts down once a day to enjoy tea and biscuits, so it’s got to be a little bit more restrained.

The poster also echoes previous promotional images we’ve seen before, with Pattinson, his head titled down (a bold choice in and of itself), inside a limousine, while the world rages on outside. The font and color of the title echo that of the trailer, and the poster prominently features the words “Based on the novel by Don DeLillo,” which is pretty great.

While we still haven’t gotten word on a US release date, we’re guessing some news will come out of Cannes: we've heard some rumors about a late summer bow (since it’s not too Oscar-y, it’ll need that extra breathing room). This writer hopes to catch the film on his one day in Cannes in a few days – if anyone has an extra ticket, please email...
