New poster - Robert Pattinson in 'Cosmopolis'
After years of playing the brooding heart-throb character of Edward Cullen in "The Twilight Saga", it really seems that Robert Pattinson is shaking off that teen idol persona with his new role in David Cronenberg's adaptation of a Don DeLillio novel, 'Cosmopolis'.

The new movie follows his character, Eric Packer, as he traipses across Manhattan in search of a decent haircut. The underlying themes of the movie discuss sex, vulnerability, and the damage inflicted by father-son conflicts.

As you can tell, there's not a Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart's character in 'Twilight') a vampire, or a pesky werewolf in sight. This was a bold move for Pattinson to make following his rise to super-stardom. By the looks of it this movie will pay off.

Cosmopolis will be in theaters in 2012. It co-stars Paul Giamatti, Juliette Binoche, Samatha Morton, and Jay Baruchel.
