Robert Pattinson was up bright and early on Tuesday to ring the opening bell at the New York Stock Exchange. The actor (who looked dapper in a Gucci suit) was in the financial district to promote his latest film, "Cosmopolis." David Cronenberg, the film's writer/director, stood was by Pattinson's side during the event.

"Cosmopolis" takes place over the course of a single day in Manhattan. It follows Eric Packer (Pattinson), a 28-year-old billionaire who passes through oppressive Manhattan traffic and Occupy Wall Street-like protests -- which he views from the backsteat of a cutting-edge limousine. As his odyssey progresses, it becomes clear that he may pay a price for his privileged life.

On Monday, the actor appeared on "The Daily Show," where he managed to talk about the film even though his beakup with Kristen Stewart was the topic on everyone's mind. The appearanced marked the 26-year-old's first interview since Stewart was photogrpahed having an affair with her "Snow White and the Huntsman" director, Rupert Sanders.

"Cosmopolis" opens in limited release on August 17.
