Robert Pattinson pokes an eye out in new trailer for David Cronenberg’s COSMOPOLIS

The interwebs are buzzing over the new trailer for director David Cronenberg's latest, COSMOPOLIS, which surfaced yesterday. Starring occasional vampire Robert Pattinson and featuring an all-star cast that includes Juliette Binoche, Jay Baruchel, Samantha Morton and Paul Giamatti, the film is set to open May 23 (according to the trailer).

In the trailer, Pattinson (pictured above with Sarah Gadon, also seen in Cronenberg's A DANGEROUS METHOD) appears shirtless on a bed with a semi-naked woman, holding a gun and rather violently poking an eye out. Taking on the role of 28 year-old billionaire Eric Packer in the cinematic adaptation of Don DeLillo's novel about an asset manager whose trip in a limo to get a haircut in midtown-Manhattan ends up an odyssey marks a total departure from the perpetually sparkly, sullen Edward Cullen of TWILIGHT.
