Robert Pattinson in Cannes: 'Cosmopolis'

David Cronenberg's chaotic comedy-drama Cosmopolis was screened today (May 25) at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival, where the director, accompanied by actors Robert Pattinson, Sarah Gadon, Paul Giamatti, and Emily Hampshire, posed for photographers. The film is in the running for the Palme d'Or.

'The history and the past'

Reviews were mixed for Cosmopolis, which some found too talky. On the other hand, they were highly positive for Robert Pattinson, best known until now for his lovestruck vampire Edward Cullen in the Twilight movies. (See also: “Robert Pattinson 'Flawless' in Cosmopolis.”)

According to Just Jared, when Pattinson was asked a Twilight-related question, Cronenberg interfered, telling the journalist that the 26-year-old actor 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), Sarah Gadon, Paul Giamatti, and Emily Hampshire, the Cosmopolis cast includes Juliette Binoche, Samantha Morton, Jay Baruchel, Mathieu Amalric, Kevin Durand, and Patricia McKenzie. Cosmopolis opened in France this week.
