Can We Say Cannes for Cosmopolis? Buzz Really Building….
We’ve been collecting Cannes speculation for Cosmopolis for a post and we all learn this week that France has lined up a distributor for the film, with a release date of May 23rd. The Cannes festival is May 16th to May 27th. This certainly is making us feel very optimistic.

On Its Speculation About Highly Anticipated Films for 2012, Including Cosmopolis cinema.com Source
Cosmopolis is #28 on their Top 100 most anticipated films of 2012.
List Worthy Reasons: Supplied with a strong Euro and North American cast, apparently Cronenberg’s adaptation of Don DeLillo’s work is fairly strong. The novel is a modern re-interpretation of James Joyce’s Ulysses smack dab in NYC’s corporate world. Release Date/Status?: With Binoche and Amalric in the mix the logic is a grand Cannes red carpet premiere with plenty of buyer activity thinking of the fall season and milking it for Pattinson presence factor. If this becomes a fall release, look for a TIFF North American premiere.
