Robert Pattinson, the smarmy, thrill-seeking mega-mogul in “Cosmopolis” is featured in a new trailer interacting with other cast members in the taut drama. The trailer offers an extended look a sexy Sarah Gadon.
But that’s not all. Juliette Binoche also gets her turn in the spotlight, looking incredibly intense and erotic.
Paul Giamatti, Samantha Morton and Kevin Durand also make quick appearances in the clip.
Rob plays a billionaire New York stock trader, Eric Packer, who sets out in his limousine to get a morning haircut. Although the movie takes place over 24 hours, Packer takes a bizarre journey involving a presidential motorcade, anti-globalization demonstrations, and a celebrity funeral.
Scenes from his life are interwoven into the trip. The drama is tense and shadowy. Rob’s character not only has to deal with the maelstrom surrounding him, but he also is confronted by the prospect of his own financial ruin. A risky bet against the yen on a bad day for the market could do him in.
Gadon steals the trailer as Packer’s newlywed bride. She’s icy and sexual-charged.
The David Cronenberg film will be competing for Palme d’Or at the 65th Cannes Film Festival in May. Check out the clip below.
