As we know, Robert Pattinson is looking to stretch his wings beyond Edward in the "Twilight" series. Yesterday he signed on to hunt Saddam Hussein in "Mission: Blacklist" but before that gets rolling, the actor will show off this chops in David Cronenberg's "Cosmopolis." And we now have a better idea of what we can expect from that film.

As we know, Robert Pattinson is looking to stretch his wings beyond Edward in the "Twilight" series. Yesterday he signed on to hunt Saddam Hussein in "Mission: Blacklist" but before that gets rolling, the actor will show off this chops in David Cronenberg's "Cosmopolis." And we now have a better idea of what we can expect from that film.

After some pretty freaky trailers a clip has arrived, giving a sense of the tone, which is....interesting to say the least. Set in a diner, the scene finds Pattinson chatting with his wife, played by Sarah Gadon. They are both talking about being "inflamed" (whatever that means) and frankly, the entire thing is almost Shakespeare to us. There is a very definite stylistic choice around the dialogue that will either be impenetrable or intriguing, but as the sequence ends, we know that madness seems to be lurking at the edges of where Eric Packer goes.

This could all work in context so who knows, but for right now we're cautious. But we will say that Pattinson looks fine here in the role, it's just a question of if the movie itself will work. "Cosmopolis" premieres at the Cannes Film Festival and opens in France on May 25th. Watch below. [AlloCine]
