Cosmopolis and Robert Pattinson on The Guardian’s ’50 Biggest Films of 2012′ List & Life after Twilight and Harry Potter

The Guardian (UK) has listed Cosmopolis on their 50 Biggest Films to Watch in 2012 list.

From The Guardian: 

Robert Pattinson already looks to be forging the most interesting post-Twilight career of its leads, and here he teams up with David Cronenberg for an adaptation of Don DeLillo’s 2003 novel. Cosmopolis is a modern answer to Joyce’s Ulysses: one day in the life of asset manager Eric Packer, who loses billions of dollars in the financial markets in a 24-hour period as his limo traverses New York.

Rob’s life after Twilight & Harry Potter

Arguably, it’s Pattinson who looks to be making the most interesting moves. At 25, he’s the oldest, and cut his teeth as Cedric Diggory in the Potter films. In the past he has demonstrated a literary/artistic bent (he played Salvador Dalí in his last pre-Twilight film, Little Ashes), and he’s going down that road again next year, with Bel Ami (released 2 March), an adaptation of the Maupassant novel. Later in the year we should be getting Cosmopolis, another literary adaptation (of Don DeLillo’s 2003 novel), which has Pattinson as a mega-rich asset manager stuck in a limo for 24 hours. The director is David Cronenberg, so chances are this will be pretty special.
