From @eOneFilmsUS

You and a guest are invited to the New York Premiere of COSMOPOLIS

Monday, August 13

7:30 PM

Please RSVP at cosmopolispremiere@gmail.com by Friday, August 10th at 6PM.

Directed by David Cronenberg

Starring: Robert Pattinson, Juliette Binoche, Sarah Gadon, Mathieu Amalric, Jay Baruchel, Kevin Durand, K’Naan, Emily Hampshire with Samantha Morton and Paul Giamatti.

Synopsis: From director David Cronenberg (A HISTORY OF VIOLENCE, DEAD RINGERS, THE FLY, EASTERN PROMISES) and based on the prophetic novel by Don DeLillo, comes COSMOPOLIS, a contemporary thriller that turns into a wild, hypnotic odyssey through our new millennium’s obsessions with power, money, control, information, technology, violence, sex, mortality, revolution, destruction and ultimately, redemption.

Unfolding in a single cataclysmic day, the story follows Eric Packer (Robert Pattinson) – a 28-year old financial whiz kid and billionaire asset manager – as he heads out in his tricked-out stretch limo to get a haircut from his father’s old barber, while remotely wagering his company’s massive fortune on a bet against the Chinese Yuan. Packer’s luxe trip across the city quickly becomes dizzyingly hellish as he encounters explosive city riots, a parade of provocative visitors, and is thrust into a myriad of intimate encounters. Having started the day with everything, believing he is the future, Packer’s perfectly ordered, doubt-free world is about to implode.

David Cronenberg talks about Robert Pattinson and ‘Cosmopolis’ with The Village Voice   2 comments

David Cronenberg talks about Rob & Cosmopolis’ with The Village Voice

Similarly, another key change to the book’s narrative came when Cronenberg cast Pattinson, who, perhaps appropriately, plays a young hotshot who’s prematurely contemplating his own obsolescence. Cronenberg said that he never really talked to Pattinson about the film’s main themes or what Eric symbolized. Instead, he said Pattinson was more concerned with whether Cronenberg thought he was good enough to play Eric. “We didn’t discuss any of these abstract things,” Cronenberg recounted. “You can’t shoot an abstraction. You cannot photograph an abstraction. And likewise, an actor cannot act an abstraction. You can’t say to an actor, ‘You will be the embodiment of American capitalism.'”

*SCAN* “Bel Ami” in “O Globo” Newspaper – Brazil   Leave a comment

Translation
With too little blood in the veins

Georges Duroy learns early on not to underestimate women. In the aristocratic world of Paris in 1890, they may be more influential than the passive position of the wives of wealthy men do suppose. Determined never to fight poverty, he gives up the scruples to ascend socially. And women appear as an appropriate way.

Not coincidentally, Duroy seeks to reconcile pleasure and ambition to get involved with the wealthy Madeleine Forestier, initially the mentor of his antics, Clotilde de Marelle, the only one who nourishes sincere interest, and Virginie Roussett, who seduces and then dispenses with ruthless .
Duroy is an empty character. But the film, Declan Donnellan and Nick Ormerod and inspired by the book by Guy de Maupassant, need not be. “Bel Ami” is without a trace. The poisonous halls of power evokes the infinitely superior “Dangerous Liaisons” (1988), Stephen Frears.
The political context is announced, but do not get real importance in the script. It remains to the public settle for a competent cast (more actresses Uma Thurman, Kristin Scott Thomas and Christina Ricci as the heartthrob Robert Pattinson) and a whimsical production, led by ubiquitous soundtrack.
