Interview with Robert Pattinson & David Cronenberg: Talk About US Cosmopolis Promo – July and August   2 comments

The words are from Karl Marx’s Communist Manifesto, a text that echoes through Don Delillo’s 2003 cerebral novel, Cosmopolis, charting the hellish descent of an arch-capitalist from his high rise sanctuary into the streets of Manhattan, the multicultural cosmopolis of the story. The story follows a sleep-deprived young billionaire investor, Eric Packer, travelling across Manhattan one day for a haircut in his stretch limo, losing a vast fortune on online investing, and crashing into the real conditions of life, marriage, mortality, sex, madness and political rage.

From the soundless chamber of Eric Packer’s sound-proof limo to the chilly air-conditioned hallways of a sleek dark Toronto luxury hotel is not much of a transition. Sleep-deprivation, the erasure of national boundaries, money: These subjects are close to the thoughts of director David Cronenberg and his 26-year-old star, Robert Pattinson, this afternoon, at the end of an almost two-week road trip in support of the film. Pattinson, in a baseball cap, slouches in a chair, the director, in an untucked checked shirt, sits next to a table, strewn with half-empty water bottles. Cronenberg waves a weary greeting. He’s too tired to stretch for a handshake, he says. After Cannes, they went to Lisbon, Paris, Berlin and London, meeting press hordes of Pattinson’s teenaged Twilight fans, improbably holding up their copies of DeLillo’s Cosmopolis to be autographed.

“There wasn’t time to unpack. Just get some socks. Try to figure out if they’re used or not,” Cronenberg says. “It was like that.”

For a relatively small movie (with a budget of just over $20-million), the talent is putting in a lot of road time.

“With big movies, it’s usually six or seven countries,” Pattinson says. “But this is way harder getting people to see. For smaller films, they just say, ‘Oh, just New York and London’ or ‘New York and L.A.’ I don’t really understand it.”

“We have the U.S. to come,” Cronenberg reminds him. “I’ve heard both July and August from the U.S. We will be doing New York and L.A.”

Sarah Gadon praises Rob’s acting in Cosmopolis   Leave a comment

Gadon and Pattinson did not rehearse, the idea being that their unfamiliarity would work to their advantage given the unfamiliarity of their characters. That said, I ask what she thinks Pattinson is really good at.

“Um, what is Rob really good at?” She chuckles. “He’s good at a lot of things! I think he was really great as Eric Packer. And I think that was one thing that kind of surprised me, because I didn’t really know him very well. And in real life he’s very kind of… I mean, you heard him in the press conference: he’s British and he’s self-deprecating and he’s much more self-conscious [than his character].

“And then all of a sudden he put on his suit, and this American accent would come out, and he would be so sure of himself and so powerful! And direct! And it was amazing to me to see that transformation of going from himself into Eric Packer. And I think that there’s few, few guys right now in the industry who can pull off that kind of powerful masculinity at such a young age.”
