Check out the trailer for Robert Pattinson‘s upcoming thriller Cosmopolis, hitting limited theaters on August 17.
Here’s the synopsis: Unfolding in a single cataclysmic day, the story follows Eric Packer (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.
Rob, who has talked about suffering panic attacks before working on a new project, said Cosmopolis was no different.
“I guess that’s kind of my process now. I have to go through the motions of feeling I’m going to have a heart attack for a while before,” he told reporters. “[David] told me to stop worrying. I think he heard me in the very obvious throes of a manic attack.”
