Based on the novel by Don DeLillo, Cosmopolis centers on a young financial whiz (Pattinson) as he traverses the city in search of a haircut. Along the way, his driver faces obstacles in the form of a presidential visit, an attack by anarchists and a rapper’s funeral, while the fortune of Pattinson’s character hangs in the balance. Colin Farrell was originally slated to play the role, but was replaced by the Twilight Saga star in January.
