David Cronenberg Finds Hollywood in 'Maps to the Stars' UK Trailer

August 11, 2014

Maps to the Stars

After debuting at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival, director David Cronenberg's latest film Maps to the Stars is headed to theaters in the United Kingdom this fall, and that means we get a new official trailer from across the pond while we wait to see when the film might end up hitting the big screen in the United States. The film shows the lives of several people in Hollywood as only a director like Cronenberg can deliver, complete with a diverse cast that includes John Cusack, Julianne Moore, Robert Pattinson, Mia Wasikowska and more. There seems to be some great performances, but of course it's bizarre. Watch!

Here's the new UK trailer for David Cronenberg's Maps to the Stars from YouTube:

Maps to the Stars is directed by David Cronenberg (Scanners, Videodrome, The Fly, Eastern Promises, Cosmopolis), from a screenplay by Bruce Wagner (A Nightmare on Elm Street 3). The Weiss family is the archetypical Hollywood dynasty: father Stafford (John Cusack) is an analyst and coach, who has made a fortune with his self-help manuals; mother Cristina (Olivia Williams) mostly looks after the career of their son Benjie (Evan Bird), 13, a child star. One of Stafford's clients, Havana (Julianne Moore), is an actress who dreams of shooting a remake of the movie that made her mother a star in the 60s. Adding to the toxic mix, Benjie is just off a rehab program he joined when he was 9 and his sister (Mia Wasikowska) has recently been released from a sanatorium where she was treated for criminal pyromania and befriended a limo driver (Robert Pattinson) who is also an aspiring actor. The film hits the UK on September 26th.

    This looks so fun. I hope it gets really brutal. I have missed my beloved Cronenberg.
