After all, how often do you have a trailer where the protagonist begs his lover to shoot him through the heart?
Directed by David Cronenberg, The Guardian reports that the film is:
“Cronenberg’s adaptation of the Don DeLillo novel about a young billionaire’s trip across New York. En route to get his hair cut, jaundiced, woozy Eric Packer (Pattinson) stares from the windows of his limo at a landscape in free-fall; a whirling diorama of threat and paranoia, threaded with images of presidents, assassins, ex-wives and rioters. Judging from the trailer, Cronenberg has cooked up a film that’s worlds away from the heavy, cerebral back-and-forths of A Dangerous Method and more akin to Gaspar Noe’s Enter the Void – strobing titles, desperate antics and all. It looks good. If Pattinson is looking to put some clear blue water between himself and those Twilight pictures, he could hardly have opted for a better choice than this.”
