New trailer and clips for Cosmopolis

"Destroy the past and make the future"

Cosmopolis has released a new trailer and a trio of new clips that only serve to confirm what we had first suspected: that David Cronenberg has created perhaps his most bizarre film to date.

The new trailer expands upon the previous two, mapping out the story of Robert Pattinson's billionaire, who discovers he had lost his entire fortune while embarking upon a crosstown limo journey. As the day continues, Pattinson's character begins to embrace his newly diminished responsibilities, and embarks upon a very dark journey indeed.

The new clips are just as unsettling, with the various characters speaking seemingly obtuse dialogue in a very clipped, detached manner. Coupled with the disturbing imagery of the trailer, it all adds up to a profoundly unusual experience.

Take a look at the clips and trailer below…




As you can see, it's not your average multiplex fare, and goodness knows what those Twi-hards will make of Pattinson's curious performance. What we can say however, is that we're deliciously intrigued.

Adapted from the novel by Don DeLillo and co-starring the likes of Paul Giamatti, Juliette Binoche, Samanthan Morton and Jay Baruchel, Cosmopolis will premiere at this year's Cannes festival, with a UK release date to be confirmed.

What do you make of the new footage? Are you bemused or bewitched? Tell us, below...

      This actually just went down on my list. That clip was pretty bad and it seems Pattinson can't act after all. "I need all the meanings of the inflamed".... seriously?

      this sounds exactly like a delillo book. 10 bucks after this film is released college students will be writing papers about it dissecting the meanings and understanding behind it like most cronenberg films. this is still one of the films i'm looking foward to the most.

      Jesus, 6mins of film and the dialogue/writing had me p********f listening too it, pretentious isn't quite the word i'm looking for but it seems like an upmarket version of Diablo Cody almost. No Thanks.

      I dont think a Diablo Cody movie is worth the price of any ticket. Check out Cracked.coms: 'If Juno was 10 times shorter and 100 times more honest'

      If you haven't seen it, you can't judge if the other clips are doing the film justice or not.
