Will Robert Pattinson And David Cronenberg’s ‘Cosmopolis’ Lay Twilight To Rest?

There’s an official nudity-heavy teaser trailer for Robert Pattinson’s latest movie, Cosmopolis.

 It is directed by David Cronenberg (The Fly, Eastern Promises) and co-stars Jay Baruchel, Samantha Morton, Paul Giamatti and Juliette Binoche.

The movie is based on Don Delillo’s novel about Eric Packer, a 28 year-old millionaire who is being pursued by two threats and begins to lose his fortune on his adventures within a day in Manhattan.

It does have one thing in common with Twilight, it’s filmed in Canada. Toronto, to be exact. “I’ve never shot a foot of film in the U.S., even though a lot of my movies are set there,” Cronenberg told students during a lecture at Queens University. 

“When we were shooting on the streets, [Pattinson] had a lot of fans crowding around, but he could go to bars and clubs in his street clothes and people didn’t recognize him.”

He’s a very serious actor. He wants to be great and takes the trouble to try and be great, what he does in [Cosmopolis] will lay that question to rest, which a lot of people who are skeptical of Twilight are asking.”

I don’t think the team Edward phase is going to be twi-gone so easily, at least not until a few years after Breaking Dawn pt. 2.

I have no doubts however, that Robert Pattinson is a better actor than anyone from the tween-vamp series besides Billy Burke, Gil Birmingham and Peter Facinelli, who is more his equal.

  2. Robert is a method actor which is one of the reasons why his costar Kristin had such problems with him. He would be in his own little world. That thing is is that outside of the twilight series Robert has had more success than the rest of the twilight cast. So that should say something.

    1. Pattinson is not a method actor, he’s said he’s not even sure what Method acting is. I’d rather believe him than some ill-informed comment. And since when has Kstew supposed to have had problems acting with him? She’s the one a director has had problems with, saying trying to direct her was like trying to “herd cats”. Pattinson has an excellent reputation with everyone he’s worked with, from Cronenberg (who wants to work with him again) to Christoph Waltz, who doesn’t suffer fools gladly. He’d also like to work with Rob again. You are correct that he’s had more success with his films outside of Twilight than any of his co-stars. Both WFE and RM made a profit.
