Teaser trailer arrives for David Cronenberg’s Cosmopolis

Trailer Ryan Lambie 22 Mar 2012 - 11:42

David Cronenberg’s next film, Cosmopolis gets its first trailer, and a warning to Robert Pattinson fans - it’s definitely not for the faint hearted…

I suspect Robert Pattinson’s legion of fans weren’t expecting him to make something quite as extreme as this. After he was propelled to fame by the teen phenomenon, Twilight, Pattinson dipped his toe into more adult waters with the period circus drama Water For Elephants. But Cosmopolis sees him in far darker territory, with the trailer below containing scenes of graphic violence, nudity, strange creatures, self-harm with a gun, and lots of general hedonism – and remarkably, the promo’s only 30 seconds long.

Following the psychological spanking drama A Dangerous Method, director David Cronenberg appears to be on much more familiar territory here. Cosmopolis, adapted from the novel of the same name by Dom DeLillo, looks like a return to the kind of assaultive filmmaking we’d associate with Cronenberg, and we’ve little doubt that it’ll be quite superb.

There’s no sign yet of a UK release date (it’s out in May in France, as the trailer points out), but we’ll let you know as soon as we have one.

As you’ve probably gathered, the trailer’s rather graphic and definitely not safe for work, so viewer discretion is advised before clicking the play button…
