After the initial promising teaser, the full-length trailer for David Cronenberg’s Cosmopolis further reinforces the previously instilled high expectations the teaser first placed.
To reiterate my earlier impressions, Cronenberg’s latest effort looks set to be a return to form after the incredibly lack-lustre A Dangerous Method. Robert Pattinson, seemingly determined to shake off his teen pin-up status, is making increasingly interesting role decisions: his often emotionless exterior appears to be perfect casting.
Based on Don DeLillo’s novel, Pattinson plays Eric Packer, a young New York stock market multi-millionaire. The film follows Packer as he makes his way across Manhattan, travelling in his customised limousine to get a haircut.
With a great cast, including Samantha Morton, Paul Giamatti and Juilette Binoche, Cosmopolis certainly shouldn’t let down on the performance front.
The film, both in terms of narrative and style, looks utterly exuberant; I eagerly anticipate it.
