Watch: Full Trailer For David Cronenberg's 'Cosmopolis' Arrives & Confirms Cannes Appearance

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]

    Pattinson doesn't look like he knows what he's doing.

    this trailer is weird i cant even tell if its good or bad.

  • Ross | May 3, 2012 3:36 PMReply

    The full (north american) trailer is online here:

    Wow, this really looks good. Weird, but in a good way. Go Cronenburg!

  • stwsr | April 19, 2012 6:58 PMReply

    Ok. Has anyone else noticed the blatant rip off of "Into the Void" opening sequence in this trailer? WTF?!

  • MacK | April 19, 2012 5:53 PMReply

    Interesting and slightly tragic that anyone could "hate" anyone they don't actually know. For the record, art - that thing that good or great movies aspire to be -- is supposed to open one's mind not close it.

    Experienced film watchers obviously liked what they saw and included Cosmopolis in selection. So maybe, just maybe, they were right.

    So to Pattinson, cast, crew and Cronenberg; the fair minded, or even just the mildly curious would say this: Many films entered the draw and you guys got through.

    Well done.

    damn.....this looks good...really fucking good! but it Cronenberg's expected!

  • lizzie | April 19, 2012 5:17 PMReply

    I love when dudes are like... "Wow, I guess he's not a sparkly vampire in real life."
    Um, hi. Welcome to reality.
    This movie looks badass. That is all.

  • Connor | April 19, 2012 5:03 PMReply

    I never thought I would ever say "I'm looking forward to seeing the new Robert Pattinson film."

  • Ciro | April 19, 2012 4:05 PMReply

    D@mm , I can wait for see this movie ... Cronenberg is amazing!!! Robert Pattinson seems right for this movie

  • Roger Cannon | April 19, 2012 11:43 AMReply

    This trailer wreaks of "Videodrome" and "Existenz" which were not Cronenberg's most interesting works.

  • sp | June 22, 2012 7:01 PM

    Those are two of his best works, imv. I mean Existenz was his last screenplay and Videodrome is known as a horror masterpiece by many. It sounds like you're not a Cronenberg fan, at least not one that enjoyed his earlier and more genre defining work.

  • Ruby | April 20, 2012 5:25 AM

    Please "Videodrome" is one of the best Cronenberg work!

  • haha | April 19, 2012 1:45 PM

    what a dumb thing to say

  • a | April 19, 2012 11:45 AM


  • Jane | April 19, 2012 11:34 AMReply

    I think the trailer is trying a little too hard to be edgy. And this really seems to be Pattinson's last chance at being taken seriously as an actor.

  • Lola | April 20, 2012 5:26 AM

    You and me both A..

  • a | April 19, 2012 11:48 AM

    God I hate Internet people.

  • jace | April 19, 2012 11:14 AMReply

    Wow. I'm actually kind of shocked. This looks really intense. And Pattinson actually looks good.

  • thom | April 19, 2012 8:59 AMReply

    yay new cronenberg- wait what its starring who?...sheet...its cronenberg i still have to go

  • cory everett | April 19, 2012 8:36 AMReply

    This looks like 80s Cronenberg in the best way.

  • vftw | April 19, 2012 8:02 AMReply

    Epic trailer is epic

  • marcus | April 19, 2012 7:32 AMReply

    This looks pretty badass. Very Videodrome/Crash. I'm sold.

  • mary | April 19, 2012 5:45 AMReply

    This looks awesome! Pattinson fits right in here and totally jaded the way the billionnaire is supposed to be.

  • Jill | April 19, 2012 5:37 AMReply

    I hate Pattinson's monotone voice and dead stare and not a fan of the rapid fire cuts. Pass.

  • obvious | April 19, 2012 11:11 AM

    "Everywhere" and "Jill", you should change your writing style so that you don't make it so obvious that you are the same person posting over and over on every website.

  • Everywhere? | April 19, 2012 9:26 AM

    Just how many sites have you gone to KKKK? These women who are obsessed with their Acting God Robert Pattinson scare the living crap out of me.

    Never really gotten the Cronenberg hype and never liked Pattinson in anything. Won't be seeing this.

  • kkkkk | April 19, 2012 8:52 AM

    Jill, it would help if you changed up your sentence. Repeating the same thing everywhere makes it obvious who you are.

  • Ellen | April 19, 2012 6:54 AM

    Cue the crazy Pattinson fans/Twihards, like our dear Ann here.

  • ann | April 19, 2012 5:43 AM

    Looks like the same person posting over and over again, she is a Kristen Stewart fan posting her Robert Pattinson hate everywhere.

  • jeb | April 19, 2012 5:20 AMReply

    Cronenberg + Pattinson = awsome! The second trailer is mindblowing!

  • Jessica | April 19, 2012 5:05 AMReply

    Obnoxious. The fast cuts must mean the acting sucks. Smoke and mirrors.

  • sandra | April 19, 2012 3:25 AMReply

    I hate Pattinson but this looks like GOLD

  • James | April 19, 2012 3:20 AMReply

    It's DeLillo, not DeLillio....Anyway, I hope this does well because I love DeLillo and Cronenberg, but Cosmopolis was not one of DeLillo's better works...I really wonder how the hell they managed to adapt it for the screen.

  • michèle | April 19, 2012 4:59 PM

    Well, I read Falling Man and Running Dog first and though I liked the books I didn't feel the need to reread them. After Cosmopolis I was left confused and after a while I read it again and than again. Each time I loved the novel more. It has many layers that IMO you can't discover after one read. For me Cosmo has become a little masterpiece and I have the impression that Cronenberg and the cast did a very nice job with this film adaptation.

  • haha | April 19, 2012 2:50 AMReply

    Confusing and it's cut too fast to show whether Pattinson can do anything but stare blankly and speak in a monotone voice.

  • Kanerwa | April 20, 2012 7:06 AM

    @Michale,thank you for your comments,I totally agree with you.

  • enn | April 19, 2012 7:13 PM

    Read the book or try to understand the story. Your comment just showing that you dont know anything about the storyline and cronenberg. Hate is hate, just saying

  • michèle | April 19, 2012 5:06 PM

    Eric Packer is a controle freak, an observer he's detached from the world surrounding him. Don't expect him shouting or being agitated, he's much too reserved. The dialogues in the book were very stylish, very special and as far as I can notice they are brought that way into the movie. David told in an interview that he used dialogues of the book literally. So Eric will speak quite monotone and so he has to do. It has nothing to do with the actor, staring blankly and speak in a monotone voice, it has to do with the character. Just saying.

  • Chris | April 19, 2012 1:58 AMReply

    This looks very interesting.

  • Leonardo | April 19, 2012 1:36 AMReply

    Wow, this is the Crazy Cronenberg that we all love.

  • Nate | April 19, 2012 1:36 AMReply

    Looks pretty cool :)
