Cosmopolis is coming

WOW.  I skip one, ONE, Don DeLillo novel and......

I'll let this newly released French (Possibly Not Safe For Work) trailer explain:

Book purchased.

It's a brief 224 pages.  For some reason I skipped it when I heard that it was a lesser DeLillo work.  But lesser DeLillo is better than just about everything else out there.

Back to the movie.  Directed and written(!) by the Canadian maestro Cronenberg (who continues to be on a whole other league planet from everyone else) and co-starring Juliette Binoche, Mathieu Amalric, and Paul Giamatti?!  I was already sold before the teaser, but this thing just sealed the deal.

Here's the link to the official site.

No official US release date, but it's opening all over Europe in May.

I'm as irrationally excited as a person can be after watching a 34 second video.  Seven times.
