Robert Pattinson suits up in the official trailer for Cosmopolis, David Cronenberg’s dark adaptation of the famous Don DeLillo novel from 2004.

In the film, Pattinson plays 28-year-old billionaire Eric Packer, who risks losing his entire fortune over the span of 24 hours, all in attempt to get a haircut. Samantha Morton and Jay Baruchel co-star.

From the looks of the trailer, Cosmopolis, which opens in limited release on Aug. 17, could go down as one of the more mature roles in Pattinson’s already-successful film career — or, at the very least, as another attempt to convince movie audiences that he can play more than just a vampire with sparkling skin.

In May, Pattinson, 26, attended the Cannes Film Festival to promote Cosmopolis, where it was met by mixed-to-positive reviews from film critics.

TIME magazine called the film a “vapid, claustrophobic drama,” while Variety was more kind, calling it “eerily precise.”

Later this year, Pattinson — who is dating his Twilight co-star, Kristen Stewart — will close the book once and for all on ‘The Twilight Saga’ when Breaking Dawn – Part II hits theaters, on Nov. 16.

What do you think of the Cosmopolis trailer? Will it hit with American audiences? Or will it totally miss?
