Here’s highly energetic, epileptic-like domestic trailer for David Cronenberg‘s Cosmopolis, starring Robert Pattinson as Eric Packer, a twenty-something New York stock market multi-billionaire, as he crosses Manhattan in his very large stretch limousine to go for a haircut.
This trailer is very successful in conveying the basic storyline which deals with a rich businessman who loses his fortune in one single day and also give us a better glimpse at Paul Giamatti, whose scenes are my favorite moments from the film.
Based on Don DeLillo‘s novel, ‘Cosmopolis’ and scribed by Cronenberg too, the film also stars Juliette Binoche, Sarah Gadon, Mathieu Amalric, Jay Baruchel, Kevin Durand, K’Naan, and Emily Hampshire.
Cosmopolis opens in limited theaters August 17th, 2012.
Here’s the official synopsis:
Unfolding in a single cataclysmic day, the story follows Eric Packer (Robert Pattinson)–a 28-year old financial whiz kid and billionaire asset manager–as he heads out in his tricked-out stretch limo to get a haircut from his father’s old barber, while remotely wagering his company’s massive fortune on a bet against the Chinese Yuan. Packer’s luxe trip across the city quickly becomes dizzyingly hellish as he encounters explosive city riots, aparade of provocative visitors, and is thrust into a myriad of intimate encounters. Having started the day with everything, believing he is the future, Packer’s perfectly ordered, doubt-free world is about to implode.
