Days after the brand new Breaking Dawn Part 2 teaser trailer was released, fans received a double dose of Robert Pattinson with the premiere of the teaser trailer of David Cronenberg's Cosmopolis.
Fans who are used to seeing Pattinson in roles like his vampire character Edward Cullen in the Twilight Saga and the lost boy now almost found in the 9/11 drama, Remember Me, were shocked by the Cosmopolis teaser. Let's just say there is a lot of banging of chicks and guns in the 30 second clip.
Within the half minute teaser, the first scene is of Pattinson shirtless with an almost nude girl pointing a gun at him, and then a medium close up of him shooting a hole through his own hand. The rest of the teaser is full of Pattinson banging the s*** out of the ladies, someone getting stabbed in the eye and crazy looking animals roaming busy streets of the city.
When the teaser released early on March 22, fans were shocked by the intensity of the movie. MTV commented, "Cosmopolis' first teaser trailer has hit the web and let's just say it's a bit more extreme than we would hve expected."
Empire Magazine talked about Pattinson's performance, "It's a very brief little shot of pure Cronenberg weirdness, but from the looks of this, it could be Pattinson's most interesting work in a while. Of course, we'll have to wait and see the whole thing, but this is certainly something very different from most of the films he's tried before."
The tweens and some teens for that matter probably won't be able to see Cosmpolis when it opens in theaters this summer and features Samantha Morton, Jay Baruchel and Paul Giamatti.
David Cronenberg is known for his films A Dangerous Method, The Fly and A History of Violence. The teaser and official poster for Cosmopolis are attached.
