Yes, this make’s the Twilight franchise look like child’s play. A teaser trailer has hit the web for David Cronenberg’s upcoming adaptation of Don DeLillo’s novel Cosmopolis,starring Robert Pattinson. The English translation of the synopsis on the French production company’s website: “Eric [Pattinson], a 28 year old ‘golden boy,’ turned his life into a violent and obsessive microcosm of today’s world, above which a looming shadow leads to the worship of ‘matter’ above all things. A frenetic and visual work in a unity of space and time, 24 hours in New York.”

Our translation: Pattinson has a lot of sex and probably kills some people. Sounds like the universal definition of a good time. Watch the teaser below.
