has released a first full trailer on the same day it was announced as part of the
Cannes film festival
, and if anything, it's even barmier than we'd expected.
Robert Pattinson stars as Eric Packer, a young billionaire who discovers he's lost his entire fortune whilst on a limo journey across New York.
Finding himself pursued by people who want him dead, Eric begins to cast off the inhibitions of his sheltered, privileged life and embarks upon a journey into darkness, and possibly madness.
Check out the new trailer below…
Seems like David Cronenberg is back to doing what he does best - creating sublimely weird nightmares and slipping them into the arena of mainstream cinema. It also looks like a peach of a role for Pattinson, who's set to shake off his tween pin-up credentials as the film's increasingly deranged protagonist.
Adapted from the novel by Don DeLillo and featuring support from the likes of Paul Giamatti, Juliette Binoche, Samantha Morton and Jay Baruchel, Cosmopolis opens in the UK later in the year, with a release date yet to be confirmed. Prepare to be supremely weirded out...
