Cosmopolis on Wired’s and Twin Cities Daily Planet’s ‘Most Anticipated Movies of 2012’ Lists   1 comment

From Wired:

Let’s Take a Ride: Cosmopolis
: Taking place over 24 hours in Manhattan, Cosmopolis examines the heart and soul of the West through the story of a 28-year-old stock market millionaire (played by Robert Pattinson) who takes a drive across town in his limo to get a haircut.
Why it could be cool: The movie is being directed by the always-surprising-us David Cronenberg (Eastern Promises) and based on a novel by Don DeLillo. So if “movie about a car ride” doesn’t sound exciting just yet, consider the sources. If nothing else, it should be visually stunning and rife with compelling dialog. The film is also being scored by Howard Shore, the Oscar-winning composer behind the Lord of the Rings films.
Cautionary note: Very little is known about this adaptation yet, so even though its creators are brilliant it’s hard to anticipate exactly what they’ll create, or how enthralling it might be. —Angela Watercutter

Another one after the jump!

Twin Cities Daily Planet:

Quite a few 2012 films have already been blasting previews and trailers at us. Going over the year’s release schedule, it’s hard to know which movies will succeed and which will fall by the wayside.

I did a similar preview last year around this time; while I’ve yet to see David Cronenberg’s latest film, A Dangerous Method (now playing at the Uptown Theatre), the other four lived up to my expectations. Here are five films I’m looking forward to in 2012, with another Cronenberg film in the mix.

Cosmopolis, directed by David Cronenberg (A Dangerous Method, Eastern Promises), is an adaptation of Don DeLillo’s novel about young billionaire Eric Packer (played by Twilight’s Robert Pattinson) who travels by limo across Manhattan in order to get a haircut. The story takes place mostly in the limo and is told in one day. Cosmopolis also stars Paul Giamatti, Samantha Morton, and Juliette Binoche. Cosmopolis should open in the fall of 2012.
