Video: Cosmopolis Trailer

Robert Pattinson is being praised for his work on Cosmopolis.  Having never read the book by Don DeLillo, when I first read the description of the plot focusing on a young millionaire driving across Manhattan in search of a hair cut I wasn’t too interested.  But with this latest trailer, and the stellar cast, my interest is certainly piqued!  How about you?  Leave us a comment and tell us how you feel about this film and which film of Rob’s are you more excited for – Cosmopolis or Bel Ami?

Comments

  1. Holy crap! Did he just shoot through his hand at the very end? Wow it looks really weird but good, I’m very excited to see it! Rob really throws himself into everything he does! He is a true actor unlike so many others out there in this day and age!

  2. I wont lie and say I’m not exticed to see Bel Ami but I feel like with Cosmopolis is going to be epic and make fans, And not just Robert Pattinson fans want to see it for him. But the other people that just want to see a good movie. Bel Ami, I feel like is more for women, where’s as Cosmoplis is going to pull more of a variety of people that are not just RP fans.

  3. i dont know why, but i still see him as a vampire. is it only me? or you guys feel it too? :D

  4. O M G. That looks so intense. Definitely more captivating than Bel Ami, at least going by the trailers I’ve seen. I love that Pattinson is doing everything he can to break away from Edward and make a long term career for himself.

  5. The movie looks great but I couldn’t get through the book. I tried twice and I could get past the first 100 pages.

  6. It looks like a really strong film, but it certainly doesn’t look pleasant. Very Pulp Fiction-y. I find the period romance of Bel Ami much more appealing, though I won’t miss Cosmopolis. I’m very curious to watch RP transform himself and lose his stereotype…

  7. Yuck. I think he is trying to hard to not be Edward. I haven’t liked any of his other movies and I don’t think I’ll like either of the new ones.

    The trailer is amazing, and there is actually another one floating out there. This is going to be a major achievement for Rob and I couldn’t be happier for him. I am looking forward to both movies but am leaning more towards Cosmopolis because of the edginess. Any word on when this is going to be shown in the US?

  9. I love Rob but I have a limit to how weird the movies I watch get and this one crosses the line. But I think Rob is doing a really good thing. He branching out and this movie isn’t meant for the typical twilight demographic. Its for more adults who smoke pot and do LSD. lol I’m joking. I sure none of you guys do that. But serious there is just too much grittiness, sex, and drugs for my classy taste. I will for sure see Bel Ami of course cuz the romance looks great.

    I’m glad that Rob is trying to diversify, and I think he has the talent to do it, but I won’t be seeing this movie. It looks too gratuitous for my taste. And, unlike many critics, I don’t need to see it to believe that Rob is a talented actor!

    • Totally agree! I know critics say (and he apparently believes) that he has to take on roles that will prove his versatility. For the most part, I have really liked all his other movies to date! But I still enjoyed him most in the role of Edward…and I don’t think he should be frustrated over or ashamed of that history. When it comes down to it, he embodied the role well, which is the goal of every actor. Why should he be made to suffer by the critics at large for doing what an actor is paid to do in a movie that did well and is loved by its fans? Not sure I will be seeing Cosmopolis…not because of Rob but just because of the content. Still, I hope he does well and gets some of the credit he’s been deserving of for a while!

    • For example, I thought he was excellent in Water for Elephants, but the movie got mixed reviews and it seems like reviewers look for ways to criticize him. Honestly, he was the best part of the lead trio in that movie…Christoph Walz was too sympathetic and not psychotic enough, and Reese Witherspoon was too aloof as Marlena. Rob was just right as Jacob. He’s obviously talented…and that’s more the type of movie I would prefer to see him in again.

  11. Definately going to see Cosmopolis now that I’ve seen that trailer, I’ll probably see Bel Ami too, but this movie looks great. Intense. Can’t wait.

    I understand why Rob is branching out and trying to do new things (shake off the Edward stereo- type), but I wish that he would cut back on the sex movies. I would love to see both movies but it seams like all they are in the end is a two hour film on all the different ways and people Rob can have sex with. I’m sure they are both great stories once you get past all the sex sceans but I don’t want to have to try that hard. I love Rob and his work but could he maybe do a movie that doesn’t stand on the sex?

  13. I read the book and while I’m not a huge fan of Don Delillo, I was drawn in by the character of Eric Packer. When I heard the movie was being made…….I moved it to my top 5 list of movies that I wanted to see. After hearing that Colin dropped out and Rob was added to the movie…….I’m anxiously awaiting to see how Rob plays Eric. This is a role that could definitely make moves for him in the movie world.

  14. Christina says:

    I’m on the fence about seeing this movie. I’m not sure I want to see Edward (wait…uh…Rob…) playing some drug-addled gun-toting modern character. I mean…he’s EDWARD. Strangely, I don’t really feel the same about Kristen. I can accept her as other characters and will be happily seeing SWATH and OTR–but Edward (shit, I mean Rob…), I’m not sure if I want to see him embody other characters…

    loved remember me and walk for elephants but this is looking just too much sick mindedness for me

  16. Well, I have read both Cosmopolis and Bel Ami and I am looking forward to both movies. I do agree that Cosmopolis is a gritty book and film. Cosmopolis has a poetic vibe to it and it is not the easiest book to read. I had to read it twice to get the gist of the book. Bel Ami is a classic french novel that flows as compared to Cosmopolis. Of course there is a century difference in the writing.

    Just from the trailers, Mr. Pattinson has a very good grip to the two different characters of Georges Duroy and Eric Packer. But I will more likely have to wait to see both of these films because more likely they will not be shown at the everyday multiplex movie theaters.
