Robert Pattinson Starrer Cosmopolis to Open U.S. in August
Pattinson said in Cannes there wasn't much in the way of rehearsal before he began shooting the David Cronenberg-directed film and that he "worried" in his hotel room before it all began. Distributor Entertainment One said it will hit U.S. theaters August 17th, well after its release north of the border.
Cosmopolis opens this Friday in Canada and it will head a week later to the U.K. for a June 15th roll out. Pattinson noted about making the film recently, "I’m not very scared of it going away at all. If I could somehow maintain a career in which I keep making movies like Cosmopolis, than I think it would be amazing, because not very many of them are made."
Based on the novel by Don DeLillo, Cronenberg's latest stars the Twilight heartthrob as a 28 year-old billionaire assets manager who begins a day-long journey in his very tricked out limo as it inches its way through Manhattan. Eric Packer's (Pattinson) objective is simple enough — he wants to get a haircut. He has everything, so what else can fulfill him? Perched on his throne in the back of his stretch limo, Packer encounters individuals as his car meanders the packed New York City streets. Juliette Binoche, Paul Giamatti, Samantha Morton, Sarah Gadon and more represent his physical, material and intellectual desires as well as demise and some — but not all — joining him one-on-one in his inner sanctum.
