Stepping out to promote his new film, Robert Pattinson took over the spotlight at the 65th Cannes film festival in Cannes, France on Friday (May 25).

The 26-year-old big screen stud was joined at the photocall by “Cosmopolis” co-stars Sarah Gadon, Emily Hampshire and Paul Giamatti, as well as director David Cronenberg, writer Don DeLillo and producers Martin Katz and Paul Branco.

The appearance comes as it was just announced that “Cosmopolis” has been been picked up by Scandinavian and Baltic distributor NonStop Ent.

As for the movie, “Cosmopolis” finds Pattinson playing the lead of Eric Packer, a 28-year-old billionaire asset manager who rides across Manhattan in search of a haircut. During his day-long journey, Packer delves into an odyssey with a cast of characters that start to tear his world apart.

Talking with French media about filming the drama during an interview the previous day, Robert dished, “Five minutes before we filmed, David told me ‘I want to see the bottom of your balls on the top of the frame.’ At the moment, I reminded myself that I would do anything for him. So I went back to see him and told him that wouldn’t happen.”

The “Twilight” hunk added, “e took it really well. At the start, it’s a very bizarre scene that you won’t see again in another movie, I promise.”
