Can we consider Robert Pattinson well and truly rebranded at this point? Cosmopolis looks so far removed from Twilight that the memory of his career launching series may not become the burden of so many iconic teenage movie stars.
Unfolding in a single cataclysmic day, the story follows Eric Packer (Robert 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 wageringhis company's massive fortune on a bet against the Chinese Yuan. Packer's luxe trip across the city quickly becomes dizzyingly hellishas 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.
