(Written for Lost In The Multiplex)
The first full trailer for David Cronenberg’s Cosmopolis has been released this week, and if you were blown away from the 30 minute teaser last month then you will be blown away from what you are to see here.
Based on Don DeLillo’s novel of the same name, the film follows a millionaire, Eric Packer (Robert Pattinson), on a trek across Manhattan to get a haircut. At least that’s all you can get from the film’s trailer as from then on it just gets a bit weird.
That’s because, on his journey, Eric devolves into an odyssey with a cast of characters that start to tear his world apart, which is followed up with the tag line “How far can he go before he goes too far?”
It certainly looks as if his mind will go to the furthest of places, but it’s this surrealistic nature that makes this film look so darn good.
Also starring Samantha Morton, Kevin Durand and Jay Baruchel, the film is set to be released sometime this year.
