From The Playlist:
“Cosmopolis” – dir. David Cronenberg – France/Germany/Canada
Synopsis: Based on the novel by American authorDon DeLillo, this centers on Eric Packer (Robert Pattinson), a young multi-billionaire making an epic, ultimately doomed limo ride across New York City.
What You Need to Know: At the outset, “Cosmopolis” seems to fall in line with the mannered, critic-friendly films of the recent Cronenberg era. It is, after all, an adaptation of a critically revered and best-selling novel and stars hunky heartthrob-of-the-moment Robert Pattinson. But having seen those first few trailers, the movie seems more atypical and dangerous (a good thing, since “A Dangerous Method” felt far too safe for a filmmaker known for exploding heads and genital mutilation), and certainly a return to a more recognizable kind of picture for the director with a number of Cronenberg’s favorite thematic tics look to be explored, including man’s relationship with modern technology, the messiness of murder, and sexual obsession. The big question is whether “Twilight” star Pattinson can pull off that lead role. His starring efforts outside the vampire franchise, like “Water For Elephants” and “Bel Ami,” have mostly been met by shrugs, but we’re impressed with what we’ve seen of him here, and if he ever wins over his doubters, it’ll be on this one. He’s got a strong supporting cast behind him which’ll help, with Juliette Binoche, Paul Giamatti, Samantha Morton, Jay Baruchel, Sarah Gadon and Mathieu Amalric along for the ride.
Bel Ami is now available to pre-order in the UK iTunes store and will be released 23rd July (the same date as the DVD). The standarad definition costs £9.99 and the HD version £13.99.

And it’s also shown on LaunchingFilms:
It looks GREAT!! Robert Pattinson on the cover of Premiere Magazine – Cannes Special. Out this Saturday.
ETA: We took down the interview and scans of the photoshoot, at Premiere’s request.
From Premiere FR:
Star of Cosmopolis, the new movie by David Cronenberg, in competition at Cannes, RP was a willing participant to a crazy photoshoot that lasted 13 hours! Find out more in the May issue.
In general, when you organize a photoshoot with an actor, whose movies made more than 2.7 billion of dollars all over the world, you except someone cold and shy, someone with a controlled image and with a safeguard. Everything is timed to the last minute, especially if the actor arrives late, everything has to be started over again. I say ‘in general’ because all of this doesn’t apply to Robert Pattinson!
It’s at the end of our interview that the actor comes up with the idea of a photoshoot dedicated to David Cronenberg’s movies. [ToR note: Check out stills for Cronenberg's movies The Dead Ringers, Videodrome and Scanners to compare.] Like a homage to his respect for the filmmaker, who by casting him in Cosmopolis, offered him not only a passport for after Twilight but aslo the opportunity to come and celebrate his entry to the adult age, on the steps of Cannes on May 25th.
To say that he got involved n the making of the photoshoot is an euphemism. The first images of Scanners and Videdrome we prepared for him as an inspiration for the future snapshots came back to us with an unexpected commentary: Rob was sorry that they weren’t more daring, wanting to push all the limits with this shoot – the complete opposite of what someone in his position would have asked Two days later, the photograph Eliot Lee Hazel and his crew – sort of strange for this kind of shoot (a special effect makeup artist, a pregnant lady …) – met in a glummy hotel in downtown L.A. to give the go-ahead of this shoot that lasted for exactly 13 hours.
After seeing the results of this shoot, we’re ready to bet that you won’t look at Robert Pattinson the same way again. That the last pretense who might still weigh on the actor will fly away as fast as they appeared.
