Robert Pattinson Cosmopolis CannesCosmopolisRobert Pattinson, David Cronenberg, Sarah Gadon, Paul Giamatti, and Emily Hampshire posed for photographers at the Cannes Film Festival 2012, where Cosmopolis is in the running for the Palme d’Or. The above Robert Pattinson photo was posted at Just Jared, which has several other images from the Cosmopolis photo call.

Cronenberg’s chaotic comedy-drama was screened today at Cannes. Reviews were mixed for Cosmopolis, which some found too talky, but they were highly positive for Robert Pattinson, 26, best known until now for his lovestruck vampire Edward Cullen in the Twilight movies.

According to Just Jared, when Pattinson was asked a Twilight-related question, Cronenberg interfered, telling the journalist that Robert Pattinson is a “real person with a history and a past. The history and the past is not Twilight. It is Cosmopolis.”

In addition to Robert Pattinson as the young multibillionaire New Yorker Eric Packer, the Cosmopolis cast includes the aforementioned Sarah Gadon, Paul Giamatti, and Emily Hampshire, in addition to Juliette Binoche, Samantha Morton, Jay Baruchel, Mathieu Amalric, Kevin Durand, and Patricia McKenzie. Cosmopolis opened in France this week. [Check out: COSMOPOLIS release dates.]
