It's better to think of David Cronenberg's 'Cosmopolis' as a dream than a movie. It might not work in cinematic terms -- it's talky, it's stiff, it's aimless -- but it makes perfect sense in hypnagogic ones.
The film, based on a novel by Don DeLillo, has been billed in some corners as a science-fiction story, but that's not quite right. Other than the protagonist's hi-tech limo -- which has touchscreens, swivel chairs, and a hidden pull-out toilet -- nothing in the New York City of 'Cosmpolis' looks all that different from our own. When our hero eats lunch, it's at a generic coffee shop. When he passes people on the street, they're dressed like normal 2012 citizens. Things grow increasingly hostile -- and increasingly weird -- on the other side of his limousine windows, but they never get any more technologically advanced. This is more of a twisted fantasy of the present than a vision of the future.
Last night, Robert Pattinson made his first television appearance since his public breakup with 'Twilight' star Kristen Stewart on 'The Daily Show.' As expected, the audience was filled with 'Twilight' fans who had been waiting all day to see him. So what did he say? How did they react?
Everyone loves the first major interview following a public and embarrassing celebrity moment. Some people can laugh at the humor of the situation, as Fred Willard did on David Letterman following his recent public masturbation arrest, but will Robert Pattinson let his icy vampire exterior warm during his first major public appearance following Kristen Stewart's embarrassing affair? Who will be the one to crack RPattz on KStew?
Robert Pattinson continues to separate himself from the 'Twilight' world that made him internationally famous with his selection of new roles. The one we're really anxious to see is David Cronenberg's latest drop down the rabbit hole, 'Cosmopolis.'
Some good news for Robert Pattinson today: Screen Australia has announced it will back the actor's latest film, 'The Rover,' from 'Animal Kingdom' writer/director David Michod and co-starring Guy Pearce.
After David Cronenberg's more subdued last couple of films, we're happy to see something a little stranger from the master director. And if the trailer for 'Cosmopolis' is any indication, there's definitely some weird things afoot, even if it does star 'Twilight's Robert Pattinson.
The 'Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Part 2' trailer is finally here (and this is no measly :10 trailer for a trailer).
'Twilight' fans have been biting their nails in anticipation ever since news broke that the official 'Breaking Dawn, Part 2' trailer was to premiere on June 20th. By the way, that's today, which means the wait is over and all of you a little too eager for a more dramatic look at the last movie can finally have your fill.
It was just yesterday when we got a slight sneak peek at 'Breaking Dawn - Part 2' Bella and Edward Cullen's new rapidly growing bundle of joy, Renesmee. The wait is finally over, 'Twilight' fans. Now you're able to get a real look at the half-human/half-vampire young girl in a series of new images released today.
Somewhere in the corner of your mind you know you've been looking forward to catching a glimpse of 'Cosmopolis.' Sure, it got mixed reviews at this year's Cannes Film Festival, but that won't stop you from watching Robert Pattinson the new David Cronenberg movie. It's just too strange not to see.
