Just a mere few hours before the imminent 2012 Cannes Film Festival announcement comes the full length trailer for David Cronenberg's "Cosmopolis." And yes, it's going to be a freaky time on the Croisette; as expected the trailer also confirms Cronenberg's eagerly-anticipated picture will make its bow in the south of France.

Just a mere few hours before the imminent 2012 Cannes Film Festival announcement comes the full length trailer for David Cronenberg's "Cosmopolis." And yes, it's going to be a freaky time on the Croisette; as expected the trailer also confirms Cronenberg's eagerly-anticipated picture will make its bow in the south of France.

Based on the book by Don DeLillo, the film offers the most promising non-"Twilight" role for Robert Pattinson yet as the billionaire Eric Packer who has one helluva day in his limousine. Sex, drugs, hallucinations and more cross his path, and for anyone worried Cronenberg had become respectable with "A Dangerous Method" he's in full form here, even going back to his psycho-sexual roots in what looks like something out of a Terry Gilliam film inspired by an LSD trip.

"Cosmopolis" hits theaters May 23 in France. It's likely due in theaters in the fall, and we'd assume with the Canuck connection Cronenberg will place the North American premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival this fall. Juliette Binoche, Paul Giamatti, Sarah Gadon and Jay Baruchel round out the cast. Watch the full trailer below.   [Allocine via ROS]
