I always knew Twilight star Robert Pattinson was meant for something big. He’s the only watchable thing in the awful vampire series and it’s only fit to see him gradually move out of his comfort zone and onto big projects, like David Cronenberg‘s upcoming Cosmopolis.
The first international trailer sold the film’s bizarre visuals and now this latest US trailer gives us a closer look at the story, which seems compelling enough to warrant a view. I’ve been hearing a lot of mixed reactions for the film, but I’ve been a fan of Cronenberg long enough to know that each one of his films tend to split the audience down the middle. I’ll be going in with an open mind, but also with the expectations that the film could be a disaster, outside of Pattinson’s performance.
The film also stars Jay Baruchel, Kevin Durand and Juliette Binoche.
Cosmopolis hits theaters on August 17th, 2012.
