Cosmopolis - the film - directed by David Cronenberg, 2012

Based on the novel by Don DeLillo.

The film's premiere was May 24, 2012, at Cannes. Lots of reviews, I'm not going to cover it all here, reactions were mixed. US release was on August 17, 2012.

A two-minute trailer was released April 19, and by the look of it things get pretty apocalyptic for Eric Packer. Check it out at the Cosmopolis site. Some nice commentary here at Death and Taxes by DJ Pangburn.

A teaser was released on March 22, here is a link: http://www.traileraddict.com/trailer/cosmopolis/international-teaser-trailer. Here is a link at ArtInfo to the trailer released on March 22, with some commentary: "Sex and Guns and Robert Pattinson Spell Global Meltdown in David Cronenberg's Cosmopolis Trailer".

Filming took place in Toronto starting in late May, 2011. The cast includes Robert Pattinson as Eric Packer, and also stars Juliette Binoche, Paul Giamatti and Samantha Morton.

Update: Here are two links to keep track of the film's progress: Cosmopolis official website and a Cosmopolis Film Blog.
