eOne’s VP Talks About The Release of Cosmopolis and Robert Pattinson   1 comment

From Deadline

Entertainment One picked up Cosmopolis as a finished film just ahead of its premiere at this year’s Cannes Film Festival. The film opened soon after its somewhat disappointing box office debut in Cronenberg’s native Canada, although the barrage of press in the U.S. surrounding the film’s main star, Robert Pattinson, and his legion of die-hard fans may provide the title some reversal of fortune at least initially. Beyond the hype, it should also play well to Cronenberg’s most ardent fans noted eOne’s VP theatrical, marketing and distribution Dylan Wiley. “I think this movie is Cronenberg at his most ‘Cronenbergiest,” said Wiley. Pattinson and Cronenberg “have a wide audience and if they catch on, we’ll take it out as wide as it will go.” Wiley noted that the natural audiences for Pattinson, Cronenberg and Cosmopolis novelist David DeLillo don’t “share much overlap,” so the potential appeal is wide. “On the marketing side, it’s about harnessing the multiple awareness we already have. Obviously Pattinson has his fan-base and Don LeLillo has his target audience. Cronenberg has a bit older, smart and affluent following along with younger males and the hipster crowd.”

“To Rob’s credit, he has fulfilled everything he’s been asked to do and more,” said Wiley. “It’s a testament to him personally and also about what he feels about this movie and what it means to him and his development as an actor. [For him] the focus has been only on the movie. He’s been very professional in keeping the focus on his work for Cosmopolis.” The film’s U.S. release this weekend had already been pre-set months ago. “We’re doing an accelerated platform release, playing the Landmark in Los Angeles and the Sunshine and Lincoln Center in New York,” said Wiley. “Cronenberg will do Q&As at Lincoln Center. We know the audiences there will be naturally huge for him because of the number of fans he has in New York, and we expect the film to play there a long time.Next week, we’ll add 20 markets and then around the 31st, we’ll add more which will bring the film up to about 50 markets.”

ENTERTAINMENT ONE TO BRING DAVID CRONENBERG THRILLER  

COSMOPOLIS

TO US THEATRES ON AUGUST 17

LOS ANGELES/TORONTO  – Entertainment One Films US is thrilled to announce the US release date for David Cronenberg’s COSMOPOLIS has been set for August 17, 2012. The film had its world premiere at this year’s Cannes International Film Festival.

COSMOPOLIS will open in New York and Los Angeles before expanding into additional markets.

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.

COSMOPOLIS also stars Juliette Binoche, Sarah Gadon, Mathieu Amalric, Jay Baruchel, Kevin Durand, K’Naan and Emily Hampshire, with Samantha Morton and Paul Giamatti.

Cosmopolis is produced by Paulo Branco of Alfama Films and Martin Katz of Prospero Pictures, and is co-produced by Grégoire Melin of Kinology.

Entertainment One is also thrilled to bring COSMOPOLIS to audiences in Canada on June 8, 2012 and to UK theatres on June 15, 2012.

Robert Pattinson Interview with Cicero Online: Talks Cannes, Cosmopolis, and more   1 comment

This is a rough Google Translation for now:

Mr. Pattinson as Eric Packer is leaving once his aura, his limo, and now he is attacked with a cake. Was there a similar moment in your career?
Strangely, I have a similar scene in “Water for Elephants” shot. But otherwise, no, not that I know of. Maybe in a metaphorical sense …

No aggressive paparazzi and overzealous fans?
No, that has been trusted no one. Thank God that would have otherwise had a Bad injury.

How would you describe your character in the movie?
Eric Packer is a man who looks at the whole world very abstract, himself, his body, his fellow men. He wears egomaniacal trains and lives in its deepest interior withdrawn, in a world where there is not the actual reality. Throughout the film, he finally tries to regain control of his body, about himself, until he gives up completely at the end.

What will remain of Eric Packer?
It’s weird. I had to remember me as much text and I thought these lines would disappear from my head as soon as each scene is filmed. But the words are still there, I can still memorize the entire script. It sounds stupid now, but there are times a day, which I quote passages DeLillo, error-free. David (Cronenberg) always says: “It’s like the Bible! There is a quote for every occasion! “Somehow DeLillo’s words are still with me arrested. Its importance is more and more aware. Especially in the scene with Samantha Morton, as we talk about the future, there are passages that haunt me literally.

Don DeLilllo talks about Robert Pattinson in Repubblica – Italy   Leave a comment

Don DeLillo – Repubblica (Italy)

How did you feel to see Robert Pattinson, actor famous for having played a vampire in a literary creation of yours?

Don DeLillo: The character he portrays is very close to that of the novel. However, I’ve never seen Twilight and when I write I have in mind neither the film nor anyone who can interpret it. I just care that will be played by good actor
