‘Cosmopolis’ Trailer: David Cronenberg Has a Death Wish for Robert Pattinson

Robert Pattinson is a ticking time bomb on the run in the new trailer for director David Cronenberg's "Cosmopolis"

Robert Pattinson is on the run in the new trailer for David Cronenberg's futuristic, dystopian-thriller "Cosmopolis."

The film follows 28-year-old billionaire Eric Packer (Pattinson) as he rides across Manhattan in a limo to get his hair cut at his father's old barber shop. But this isn't any ordinary limo ride, and Packer may never receive the haircut he oh-so-desires — as he watches the dissolution of his financial empire, he also learns of plans for his assasination. 

"Cosmopolis" also stars Oscar-winner Juliette Binoche and on-the-rise actress Sarah Gadon.

Will Pattinson ever get that haircut? You can see the film Aug. 17 and find out for yourself.
