'Twilight's Pattinson Promotes Anti-Capitalist Movie By Ringing NYSE Morning Bell

'Twilight's Pattinson Promotes Anti-Capitalist Movie By Ringing NYSE Morning Bell

David Cronenberg directed and Robert Pattinson stars in “Cosmopolis,” a movie one reviewer at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival described as “an enjoyably peculiar anti-capitalist indictment.” 

And on Tuesday, in the richest of ironies, Cronenberg and Pattinson visited the New York Stock Exchange, perhaps the penultimate symbol of modern capitalism and its markets, to ring the morning bell

Cronenberg and Pattinson’s promotion of the anti-capitalist movie “Cosmopolis,” which rails against the vacuous and soulless lives of the so-called 1%, at the New York stock exchange has been compared to the “NAACP inviting ‘Birth of a Nation.'”

The movie is an adaptation of Don DeLillo’s 2003 novel, and both have been described as an indictment of the “hollow lives” of the very “men and women who stood on the trading floor” that looked up at Cronenberg and Pattinson as they opened trading. 

“Cosmopolis” opens in limited release this weekend.
