New Images from David Cronenberg’s COSMOPOLIS Starring Robert Pattinson

     November 8, 2011


New images from David Cronenberg‘s adaptation of Don DeLillo‘s Cosmopolis have found their way online.  The film stars Robert Pattinson as a newlywed billionaire who ends up losing his bride and his billions in a single day.  I’m willing to give Pattinson a pass on the Twilight films since I think the material is untenable, and I want to see if he rises to the challenge of a demanding lead role in a David Cronenberg movie.  (However, I feel it’s important to mention that I never saw Remember Me or Water for Elephants.)

Hit the jump to check out the images.  The film impressive cast also stars Sarah Gadon, Kevin Durand, Jay Baruchel, Samantha Morton, Juliette Binoche, Paul Giamatti, and Mathieu AmalricCosmopolis will likely hit theaters in 2012.

    You should see Remember Me and Water for Elephants. They are both great movies. Critics are just being ridiculous because of their Twilight bias. You may be too so give it a year or two and then watch to see that both movies are quite great.

      I thought he was fantastic in Water for Elephants, like really good. I agree with the bias, but it’s not just the Twilight stars but other young actors from hot franchises (Zac Efron, Shia LaBeouf). People forget that they always criticized Leonardo DiCaprio for a while after Titanic because of all the teen magazines/posters and everything. Five years later, he stars in major roles for Steven Spielberg and Martin Scorsese and from there, has been on top of the A-list, because everybody wants to work with him. I would really give today’s young actors some time to grow and mature as actors and who knows, 5-10 years later, they’ll be in the same position as DiCaprio is in right now. For Pattinson, Water for Elephants and David Cronenberg I think is a good start.

        Another movie I think people should get the chance to check out is How To Be. Pattinson is terrific in it as a young man in a quarter-life crisis. Really funny and very moving.

    I think that Pattinson could be a great actor. But alas he fooled himself when he accepted to play in this twilight maskerade.

    • ajax84

      Yes, but without Twilight he wouldn’t be Robert Pattinson. He wouldn’t get as many roles if it weren’t for Edward Cullen. I mean face it, the dude isn’t getting alot of work because of his acting talent, he’s getting it because he’ll draw his Twilight fan base to the theaters (and there are millions and millions of tweenies)

      • Tarek

        True. I think that in 5 years he will improve drastically.
        ( which will never be the case of Daniel Radcliffe)

    I never watched Water For Elephants, but I didn’t really like Remember Me too much. What I did like in it though, was Pattinson. He’s a solid guy, and I really do look forward to all the movies this guy is gonna be making. Of course Twilight pretty much sucks all around but even then it isn’t particularly HIS fault.

  • Frank Schernhoeffer

    That lady is absolutely stunning. This movie is right near the top of my most anticipated for next year. Cosmopolis isn’t DeLillo’s best work (Underworld takes that honor IMO) but it’s still an amazing read.

    If this movie has been done correctly, and with Cronenberg at the helm I think it will have been, it could be an absolutely unbelievable piece of cinema.

    Great cast too. I’m more than willing to give R-Pattz a chance, Remember Me is one of the most criminallu underrated movies of the last 10 years IMO. Add in Giamatti, Binoche, Morton, and Amaliric, and you have one stellar cast.

    the material is so strange that i am looking foward to seeing how it plays out on the big screen.

  • Working Writer

    It really is no one person’s fault when a movie doesn’t work. There are too many hands in it for that. Keep in mind that an actor or writer has tremendous pressure to exercise notes he or she is given, and some of them can be quite ridiculous. Sometimes things simply don’t pan out on the screen the way they did on the page. Sometimes the budget doesn’t allot for having enough time to properly execute a scene. These are the realities of moviemaking.

    I’m not a fan of Twilight, but I can appreciate that these books and movies resonated with a young crowd, particularly in a time when there is so much stimulus, it’s becoming very difficult to get people to actually go to the movies. I applaud the effort of anyone working in the business, because it’s just so hard to sustain a career. There are times when you have to pitch for jobs that may not be ideal, but you need to feed your kids and you want to stay in the business.

    I grew up reading Roger Ebert’s reviews. I still read them. When I was a kid, I was amazed to read his review on Big Trouble In Little China. It certainly didn’t leave the impression on him that it did on me. I cherished that movie. My family loved and continues to love that film.
    That’s when I realized this is a subjective business. And I will continue to applaud those that try to be in it and work towards helping us escape the monotony of life, if only for a couple of hours, so that we may be entertained.

    That said, break a leg Mr. Pattinson.

  • Dsimolke

    I don’t necessarily think Pattinson is going to turn out to be a GREAT actor. That’s a stretch. Passable, maybe even suitable, sure. Although with a Cronenberg flick, I doubt it really matters if you have a true thespian in the lead role. Not that amazing things don’t happen when there is one, it just probably just isn’t a must. Most of his early work involves the actors playing “types” more than anything else, anyhow. This seems like a story that’s already got s style Cronenberg will no doubt match-up with, especially given his more recent output.

  • Carlos Del Bosque


    Gotta disagree dude.

    Pattinson is already better than ”passable”. I haven’t seen those Twilight films so I can’t pass judgement on them. But I have saw some of his other work and the dude has real talent. I haven’t been keeping up on this particular movie, but if Cronenberg and Paul Giamatti are on board, I’ll be there to see it.

  • Leoh

    Robert pattinson is a mediocre actor, he has the same facial expression in all his movies.

    • Tarek

      you mistake one name for the other dude. You are talking about Bruce Willis

  • I cry u smile

    Why David why?! :(

    • NYC_PHIL

      Because he obviously saw talent perhaps? I actually find it quite sad that people hold Twilight against this guy. I’ve only ever saw one of his other movies outside of that dross of a franchise, Remember Me. He actually showed chops in that movie. I was pleasantly surprised.

      Good luck to the fella
