We have to say…this looks pretty awesome.

In his latest post-Twilight flick, David Cronenberg's Cosmopolis, Robert Pattinson plays a charismatic, wealthy businessman who loses his fortune in one day.

And the brand-new trailer for the dark drama gives more of a glimpse of what's in store during Pattinson's wild ride.

The drama follows 28-year-old billionaire asset manager Eric Packer as he rides around Manhattan in a stretch limo to get a haircut, all while risking his company's fortune on a shaky bet.

That bet takes Packer's trip in a totally different, chaotic direction, putting his seemingly perfect life in jeopardy.  

Cosmopolis, which also stars Jay Baruchel, Juliette Binoche and Paul Giamatti hits theaters in limited release August 17.

So, tell us, are you excited to see Cosmopolis?
