We have to say…this looks pretty awesome.
In his latest post-Twilight flick, David Cronenberg's Cosmopolis, Robert Pattinson plays a charismatic, wealthy businessman who loses his fortune in one day.
And the brand-new trailer for the dark drama gives more of a glimpse of what's in store during Pattinson's wild ride.
The drama follows 28-year-old billionaire asset manager Eric Packer as he rides around Manhattan in a stretch limo to get a haircut, all while risking his company's fortune on a shaky bet.
That bet takes Packer's trip in a totally different, chaotic direction, putting his seemingly perfect life in jeopardy.
Cosmopolis, which also stars Jay Baruchel, Juliette Binoche and Paul Giamatti hits theaters in limited release August 17.

Friendship never looked so good…
Here’s your first taste of Anton Corbijn ’s new movie Life , starring Robert Pattinson as famed photographer Dennis Stock . The film is based on the friendship between Stock and his subject for a Life Magazine assignment: a then up and coming movie star James Dean , played by Dane DeHaan .
Life , which also stars Joel Edgerton and Ben Kingsley , finds its protagonists during the time of East of Eden , the 1955 film that would earn Dean a posthumous Oscar nomination for Best Actor. This September will mark the 60th anniversary of Dean’s tragic death.
Like Marilyn Monroe, Elizabeth Taylor, Lucille Ball, and John Wayne, his is a name that does and will live in enigmatic infamy. But there was a time, if you can believe it, when Dean was still an “unknown actor” whose star had yet to rise and break many, many hearts along the way.
Anton Corbijn’s “Life,” the first trailer for which is finally in, looks to chronicle some of the earliest days of James Dean (played by dead ringer Dane DeHaan)’s career. Particularly, the time when a LIFE Magazine photographer named Dennis Stock (Robert Pattinson) saw his up-and-coming potential and pushed to snap a photo essay on the man who had, in his words, “an awkwardness, something very pure” going for him.
Which is a very interesting analysis coming from him because, as any early-round RPattz enthusiast knows, that’s exactly the appeal he offered the crowd when he first became an unwitting household name with heartthrob status thanks to “Twilight” in 2008.
Ever since, Pattinson has maintained a love-hate relationship with the paparazzi, so this image of him as a photog for the flick is a little odd. And also completely fascinating.
At any rate, the pics Stock took for the mag feature ended up being some of the most memorable from Dean’s entire career, so it’s definitely an intriguing relationship to follow in the flick.
Robert Pattinson and Dane DeHaan in the Life trailer
Dazed has debuted the trailer for Life, the biopic of tragic acting icon James Dean, directed by Anton Corbijn (Control, A Most Wanted Man) and starring Robert Pattinson (The Twilight Saga, Maps to the Stars) and Dane DeHaan (The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Kill Your Darlings). Check out the Life trailer below!
Scripted by Luke Davies (Candy, Reclaim), Life is based on the true friendship formed between actor James Dean (DeHaan) and photojournalist Dennis Stock (Pattinson) as Dean’s star was about to rise upon the release of 1955’s East of Eden.
The film co-stars Academy Award winner Ben Kingsley (Iron Man 3, Hugo) as Warner Bros. studio head Jack L. Warner, Joel Edgerton (The Gift, Exodus: Gods and Kings) as Magnum’s photography editor John G. Morris, and Alessandra Mastronardi (To Rome With Love) as Italian actress Pier Angeli.
Finally the first film about our new millennium. Just before being announced as an In Competition entry at Cannes 2012 this morning, the first full-length trailer for David Cronenberg's Cosmopolis hit, sending cinephiles into a tizzy over its seductive debauchery and dark Cronenberg vibe. Out of nowhere, Twitch has followed up with an entirely different full-length Cosmopolis trailer that highlights many of its fantastic cast members. We already know Robert Pattinson stars as the billionaire who takes his limo around New York, but Samantha Morton is in it this time, so is Kevin Durand and even Paul Giamatti. See below!
Watch the second international trailer for David Cronenberg's Cosmopolis, embedded from Twitch:
David Cronenberg (Scanners, Videodrome, A History of Violence, Eastern Promises) writes/directs this adaptation of Don DeLillo's novel following a wealthy asset manager (Robert Pattinson) who crosses the whole of Manhattan across 24 hours in a stretch limo just for a haircut. However, the guy can't get a break as he's repeatedly delayed by a presidential motorcade, anti-globalization demonstrations, and a celebrity funeral. But his biggest problem comes when he must deal with the repercussions of a risky bet against the yen on a bad day for the market that may cause him to lose all his money and his newlywed bride. Sarah Gadon, Kevin Durand, Jay Baruchel, Samantha Morton, Juliette Binoche, Paul Giamatti, and Mathieu Amalric also star. Expected release sometime in summer (maybe May), but no exact date set yet.
