The insane teaser trailer for David Cronenberg’s latest film, “Cosmopolis”, is now online… and to be honest with you, I have no idea what’s going on. That’s no necessarily a bad thing though, leaves you almost wanting more, which is the job of a teaser trailer.
The film, based on Don DeLillo’s novel of the same name, stars Robert Pattinson, Juliette Binoche, Sarah Gadon, Mathieu Amalric, Jay Baruchel, Kevin Durand, K’naan, Emily Hampshire, Samantha Morton and Paul Giamatti. Below is the official synopsis, teaser trailer, and poster for the film. Enjoy.
New York City, not-too-distant-future: Eric Packer, a 28 year-old finance golden boy dreaming of living in a civilization ahead of this one, watches a dark shadow cast over the firmament of the Wall Street galaxy, of which he is the uncontested king. As he is chauffeured across midtown Manhattan to get a haircut at his father’s old barber, his anxious eyes are glued to the yuan’s exchange rate: it is mounting against all expectations, destroying Eric’s bet against it. Eric Packer is losing his empire with every tick of the clock. Meanwhile, an eruption of wild activity unfolds in the city’s streets. Petrified as the threats of the real world infringe upon his cloud of virtual convictions, his paranoia intensifies during the course of his 24-hour cross-town odyssey. Packer starts to piece together clues that lead him to a most terrifying secret: his imminent assassination.
…and here is the poster for “Cosmopolis”.
