“Cosmopolis” clip shows Robert Pattinson’s romantic prowess

If you had your doubts about David Cronenberg choosing Robert Pattinson to play the lead in his upcoming film Cosmopolis, now’s the time to put them at ease. A new clip from the movie has hit the web courtesy of Allocine, and Pattinson shows in it that he has the stuff to do… well, whatever Cronenberg has to offer.

This scene focuses on Pattinson’s character Eric Packer interacting with a young woman played by Sarah Gadon. They presumably met in the bookstore they’re talking about in the clip, and Pattinson repeatedly tries to get her to have sex with him at the hotel across the street from the restaurant they’re in. She turns him down, and then two men who walk in holding dead rats chanting, “A specter is haunting the world” interrupt their lunch at the restaurant.

This scene was teased in the previously-released teaser trailers, but it’s nice to see it in its entirety. The film looks to be one of the most intense, violent and sexual projects Cronenberg has done in a while, and this clip teases the steady burn that will likely lead up to the explosion of insanity we’ve seen snippets of in the trailers.

Based on the Don DeLillo novel of the same name, “Cosmopolis” is the somewhat surreal story of a young New York City billionaire on a daylong mission to get a haircut. Along the way, he has sexual encounters, cheats on his wife, deals with his daddy-issues, and finds out about a plot to assassinate him.

In addition to Pattinson and Gadon, the film stars Paul Giamatti, Juliette Binoche, Mathieu Amalric, Samantha Morton, Jay Baruchel, Kevin Durand and Emily Hampshire. It’s due in theaters in France on May 23 and doesn’t yet have a US release date.

The Best Of The Last

Portlandia Goes Out With A Bang

Posted by on

The end is near. In mere days Portlandia wraps up its final season, and oh what a season it’s been. Lucky for you, you can watch the entire season right now right here and on the IFC app, including this free episode courtesy of Subaru.

But now, let’s take a moment to look back at some of the new classics Fred and Carrie have so thoughtfully bestowed upon us. (We’ll be looking back through tear-blurred eyes, but you do you.)

Couples Dinner

It’s not that being single sucks, it’s that you suck if you’re single.

Cancel it!

A sketch for anyone who has cancelled more appointments than they’ve kept. Which is everyone.

Forgotten America

This one’s a “Serial” killer…everything both right and wrong about true crime podcasts.

Wedding Planners

The only bad wedding is a boring wedding.

Disaster Hut

It’s only the end of the world if your doomsday kit doesn’t include rosé.

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
