Cosmopolis Trailer


In a luxury stretched limousine on the way to get a haircut from his father's barber, the ambitious 28-year-old billionaire that is Eric Packer enters chaos and anarchy as the streets of Manhattan begin to collapse around him. His future, once apparently carved in stone, becomes uncertain as political protestors and violent rioters attack the city from the inside following a visit from the President of the United States. Eric sees his treasured empire melt before his eyes as he looks on, unable to act or give out orders; he soon begins to understand, through a series of clues dotted about New York through the confusion, that the disturbances are leading to his imminent execution.

Cosmopolis Review


Good
Artful, intelligent and wilfully obtuse, Cronenberg uses his skill to hold our interest through this oddity of a film. But it's difficult to engage with such fragmented film, especially when its big themes are hidden in overwritten dialog.

Eric (Pattinson) is a 28-year-old billionaire who wants a haircut. As he climbs into his high-tech limousine, his security chief (Durand) warns about traffic problems because the US President's in Manhattan. En route, Eric continues his routine, meeting his computer expert (Baruchel), theoretician (Morton) and financial advisor (Hampshire), who talks to him during his daily prostate exam.

He also sees his new wife (Gadon) several times, has sex with two women (Binoche and McKenzie), endures an anarchists' riot, gets a pie in the face and confronts a man (Giamatti) who wants to kill him.

Cosmopolis Trailer


As he is transported in his lavish stretched limousine across Manhattan to get a haircut, self-centred billionaire Eric Packer's day soon collapses into meltdown as a visit from the President of the United States spurs a series of chaotic riots and groups of people protesting against the country's political future. Eric watches powerlessly the demolition of everything he holds dear and him and his associates begin to find clues amongst the disturbances that lead him to one chilling truth; his impending assassination. Will Eric manage to save his empire from total destruction, or will it drive him to the brink of madness?

Based on the novel of the same name by Don De Lillo, this action packed drama film is a frenzied mix of violence, politics, sex and money that will have you clutching on to the edge of your seat. Directed by David Cronenberg, the talented director of 'The Fly', 'Dead Ringers', 'A History of Violence' and 'A Dangerous Method', this fantastic motion picture has been selected to compete for the Palme d'Or at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival.

Starring breakthrough 'Twilight' heartthrob Robert Pattinson as Eric Packer, 'Cosmopolis' is set to be released in the UK on June 15th 2012.


Directed by: David Cronenberg

Starring: Robert Pattinson, Jay Baruchel, Kevin Durand, Paul Giamatti, Juliette Binoche, Sarah Gadon, Mathieu Amalric, Emily Hampshire and Patricia McKenzie
