Cosmopolis, the upcoming film from David Cronenberg, has released a new teaser trailer in which Robert Pattinson shows there’s more in his locker than sallow-faced pouting.
Based on the novel by Don DeLillo, Cosmopolis will chart a single day in the life of billionaire Eric Parker (Pattinson), who realises he is losing money at a rate of knots and decides to revel in his own downfall.
The teaser looks every bit as scuzzily weird as we’ve come to expect from Cronenberg, with Pattinson clearly relishing the opportunity to play a more engaging character than that afforded him by TheTwilight Saga.
Take a look at the new trailer, below…
We were a little sceptical about the Cronenberg / Pattinson team-up when this one was first announced, but this first footage is compellingly odd enough to have piqued our interest.
Also featuring Samantha Morton, Paul Giamatti, Juliette Binoche and Jay Baruchel, Cosmopolis will open in the UK on 23 May 2012. In the meantime, you can check out a rather gorgeous new poster that has also appeared online. Take a look below...
