First Trailer For 'Cosmopolis' Is Completely Insane

Cosmopolis Teaser Trailer

via Twitchfilm

Here is the trailer for Cosmopolis, directed by David Cronenberg, based on the novel by Don DeLillo. Looks fun, right? Was that a dinosaur? Also, who else is excited that this is starring the kid from Twilight? That means it has to be good. 

Here's a summary of the book, from Twitchfilm: 

Eric Packer risks his entire fortune to bet against the yen on a tumultuous day, a move that puts him in an assassin's crosshairs as he moves from place to place in a limo in a study of capitalism that takes place in a slightly futuristic metropolis.

Here's a list of release dates from the film's website, though it doesn't mention anything about the United States. Does anyone know when this is coming out? 

Editor's Note: As both a huge Cronenberg and Delillo fan, I was all sorts of disappointed when Colin Farrell dropped out and Pattinson was cast. But this teaser has made me a believer. And even though I feel it is kind of misleading, and makes the film look action packed, I am still super pumped for this.

I don't remember there being any dinosaurs in the book. Anyone?

Almost looks like a giant rat.

You're right. Just watched it frame-by-frame and it does look like a rat. So does anyone remember a giant rat in the book?

Sorry. I thought it looked like a T-Rex. But that's just where my mind goes on most things. 

To dinosaurs.

First time I saw the Lost pilot and heard the smoke monster sounds, the first thought in my mind was, "Holy shit, this show has dinosaurs."

Looks pretty rad.

The trailer radiates strange . . . techno-porno vibes . . . whatever that means!

This is what we need.  Something weird.  I'm not being sarcastic.  I like weird and pornographic, Hollywood has become a PG13 playpen lately.
