It might seem like we’re in the dwindling days of the summer movie season, what with selection at your local theater waning, but this weekend a brace of talented thesps and an acclaimed director will make their way to cinemas in one of the Cannes Film Festival’s most talked about movies.
David Cronenberg‘s “Cosmopolis,” starring Robert Pattinson, is coming. We’ve got two more exclusive images from the film to go with the three we unveiled last week. Based on the book by Don DeLillo, the story follows billionaire Eric Packer whose seemingly ordinary day, marked by a limo ride across Manhattan, sees the markets tumbling, his business in peril, and his personal life spinning out of control. Appearing in the film is a talented supporting cast including Samantha Morton (pictured below with Pattinson and Cronenberg in a behind-the-scenes pic), Juliette Binoche, Paul Giamatti, Jay Baruchel, Sarah Gadon and more.
“Cosmopolis” will certainly be unlike anything else you see this summer. Check it out when it opens on Friday, August 17th. Read our review from Cannes right here — fans of the book should be very pleased.
