A Dangerous Method, despite its solid cast – Michael Fassbender, Keira Knightley and Viggo Mortensen – and controversial subject material, failed to entice audiences in the way most David Cronenberg films usually do.
It’s a relief, then, that his latest film, the mysteriously titled Cosmopolis, seems to pack everything in – from extreme violence to obscure surrealism – that one would expect from such a visionary and excessive filmmaker, as the new U.K. trailer so rightly emphasises.
Featuring a cast – toplined by Robert Pattinson – that look uneasily at home with the material, Cosmopolis centers on 28-year-old billionaire asset manager Eric Packer and his hell-raising 24 hour limo trek across the troublesome Manhattan district of New York City.
Entertainment One have quite rightly set a U.K. release date for June 15, a mere two weeks after it premieres in-competition at the 65th Cannes Film Festival, which means we’ll be returning to Cronenberg’s weird and wonderful imagination in no time.
