Rob looking tuxlicious at Cosmopolis premiere in Cannes

Robert Pattinson's latest film, Cosmopolis, premiered in Cannes on May 25th.  GoodReads describes the book of the same name - upon which the movie is based - as follows:
"It is an April day in the year 2000 and an era is about to end. The booming times of market optimism — when the culture boiled with money and corporations seemed more vital and influential than governments — are poised to crash.
Eric Packer, a billionaire asset manager at age twenty-eight, emerges from his penthouse triplex and settles into his lavishly customized white stretch limousine. Today he is a man with two missions: to pursue a cataclysmic bet against the yen and to get a haircut across town.
Stalled in traffic by a presidential motorcade, a music idol’s funeral, and a violent political demonstration, Eric receives a string of visitors — experts on security, technology, currency, finance, and a few sexual partners — as the limo sputters toward an increasingly uncertain future."
I don't have to tell you that Rob looked good at the premiere.  Premiere Rob always looks good.  (And Hobo Rob.  And Airport Rob.  And...)

Entertainment Weekly's review of Rob in the role of Eric Packer was very... positive:
"Robert Pattinson, pale and predatory even without his pasty-white vampire makeup, delivers his frigid pensées with rhythmic confidence, but he’s not playing a character, he’s playing an abstraction – the gazillionaire bad-boy hotshot who flies too close to the sun, but he likes it up there, so f— you!”

  1. Ive heard a lot of great things about this movie. But it is definitely an R rating for you younger kiddos. He gets a prostate exam in the back of the limo while chatting with someone! Yikes!

  2. LMFAO, I love that review from Good Reads :D classic!

    I went to the screening with Rob and David Q&A on Friday and really enjoyed it (the movie, not just "the presence")! It reminds me of American Psycho with the 90's version of Great Expectations... and Paul Giamatti is outstanding.

    Shamefully I've not read the book yet but am very interested to... and then see the movie again ;)
