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.
