Robert Pattinson's 'Cosmpolis' Confirmed for Cannes as Full International Trailer Arrives


Officially joins the lineup of the 2012 Cannes Film Festival, the David Cronenberg-directed film debuts a French trailer which sees the chaos surrounding a day in the life of Pattinson's character.

David Cronenberg's thriller "Cosmopolis", which has Robert Pattinson as the lead actor, has been confirmed to be joining the lineup of the 65th Annual Cannes Film Festival in French. The news is not only announced on the official site of the festival, but is also revealed in a newly released international trailer for the upcoming film.

Being debuted via Allocine, the full trailer is opened with an official stamp and logo from Cannes which reads, "Competition Officielle Festival de Cannes". The gritty promo video also offers a look at the chaotic and crazy things that happen unexpectedly in one day of Pattinson's Eric Packer's life. Some fight and sex scenes are among those which are highlighted in the trailer.

Based on a novel of the same title by Don DeLillo, "Cosmopolis" follows a day in the life of Packer, a 28-year old billionaire who traverses Manhattan in his stretch limo in order to get a haircut from his preferred barber. On that day, his driver has to navigate a presidential visit, an attack by anarchists and a rapper's funeral. Stuck in traffic, he anxiously monitors the value of the yen on the limo's computer, his fortune in the balance.

Aside from serving behind the lens, Cronenberg provides the script for the intense thriller, which still hasn't set a U.S. release date. Also rounding up the cast ensemble are Paul Giamatti, Juliette Binoche, Mathieu Amalric, Samantha Morton, Sarah Gadon, Jay Baruchel and Kevin Durand.

The 65th annual Cannes Film Festival, meanwhile, is scheduled to run from May 16 to 27.
