A new promotional banner for David Cronenberg’s Cosmopolis, scheduled to be released in 2012, has recently debuted online.
Robert Pattinson, of Twilight fame, plays a billionaire who travles across Manhattan in a stretch limo to get a haircut. What should be a simple trip ends up unraveling his life throughout the course of a day in a story that sounds tailor made for Cronenberg’s surrealist sensibilities. Also featured in the film are Juliette Binoche, Samantha Morton, Kevin Durand, Paul Giamatti, and Sarah Gadon. It is based on the 2003 novel of the same name by Don DeLillo. Cronenberg’s newest movie, A Dangerous Method, is in theaters now.
