Variety has suggested that a good dozen titles are basically confirmed for tomorrow's Cannes Film Festival lineup, including the already largely expected likes of Tommy Lee Jones' "The Homesman," Ken Loach’s “Jimmy’s Hall," Mike Leigh's "Mr. Turner" and Bennett Miller's "Foxcatcher." But in addition to those Us and UK titles, the report says that a trio of Canuck titles are in official competition, a mighty feat for the country. Atom Egoyan and David Cronenberg will both return to Cannes with their films "The Captive" (starring Ryan Reynolds) and "Maps to the Stars" (with Julianne Moore and Robert Pattinson), alongside an official competition first timer in Xavier Dolan, who at 25 years old has already been at Cannes three times with "I Killed My Mother," "Heartbeats" and "Laurence Anyways," but has never made it into the top program. Variety says that will change tomorrow. More on that »

Following on from his disappointing psychoanalysis drama A Dangerous Method (2011) and the overly faithful chamber piece Cosmopolis (2012), fans of Canadian auteur David Cronenberg will be hoping for something of a comeback when Maps to the Stars (2014) potentially hits the Croisette this May. Enlisting A-List stars Mia Wasikowska, Julianne Moore, John Cusack and Robert Pattinson, the film sets itself up as an acerbic portrait of celebrity competition and madness in the shallow waters of Hollywood. Dr. Stafford Weiss (the ever-sleazy Cusack) is a self-help guru while his wife, Christina (Olivia Wilde), manages the career of an obnoxious millionaire child star, Benjie (Evan Bird) who has just checked out of his precocious stint in a drug rehab clinic and is ready to restart his career.

After languishing in development hell for more than five years, David Cronenberg’s Maps to the Stars finally has two new clips to boast about — although one feels more like a rough sketch. Maps to the Stars is Cronenberg’s Hollywood opus à la David Lynch’s Mulholland Drive (but perhaps heavier on the absurdist side), commenting on the industry’s relationship with Western culture, centered on a dysfunctional Tinseltown family. The cast couldn’t be better: Julianne Moore, Mia Wasikowska (who is quickly becoming our go-to creepy girl, taking over for Christina Ricci), John Cusack, and Robert Pattinson (his second go-round with the director). "Maps to the Stars is very extreme. It's not obviously a very big commercial...

Sex, Rehab & Pyromania! Robert Pattinson's new movie, "Maps to the Stars," serves up plenty of drama in the new trailer. The David Cronenberg movie, which also stars Julianne Moore, John Cusack and Mia Wasikowska, features Robert as a limo driver for Julianne's character, an actress in the midst of a spiral. In the trailer, the two share a rather explicit scene together in the back of the limo - "Twilight" fans, this makes that "Breaking Dawn" broken bed scene blush.

Although you won’t see her in the first promotional trailer for David Cronenberg’s Maps to the Stars, it appears (at least according to the film’s IMDb page) that Carrie Fisher is co-starring in the auteur’s latest film as herself (or, perhaps more accurately, as a version of herself). Whereas the rest of the star-studded cast is saddled with hilariously fake-sounding names (John Cusack is “Dr. Stafford Weiss,” with Julianne Moore set to play “Havana Segrand” and Robert Pattinson rounding things out as “Jerome Fontana”) that make everyone seem like they’ve been picked to play characters in a high-minded pornographic film, Fisher apparently gets to keep her own. It’s a fitting choice for Cronenberg to file in a “Fisher” amongst other roles that are stuck with names like “Azita Wachtel” and “Sterl Carruth,” because at the very least it adds a touch of actual veracity to his latest feature – which is about »

A new Maps to the Stars trailer has gone online, and this one is a French, Nsfw version (it's Nsfw because of language and nudity, not because it's French). The film follows an archetypical Hollywood dynasty including a writer of self-help manuals, his wife who manages the career of their 13-year-old son, and their daughter, who was recently released from a sanatorium where she was treated for criminal pyromania. The plot also includes Havana, an actress who wants to remake a movie that starred her now-deceased mother. Like yesterday's trailer, I'm still not quite sure what to make of the movie. There are clearly some darkly comic elements, but there's also some serious intensity, and it's sometimes difficult to tell where one ends and the other begins. I can't wait to see this flick. Hit the jump to check out the trailer. The film stars John Cusack, Julianne Moore, Mia Wasikowska, »

Chicago – The actor Greg Kinnear has been known for his neat and tidy image, but never has he portrayed a religious leader. His role as Todd Burpo – a pastor of a church and the father whose son believes “Heaven Is for Real” – brings the energy of spirituality to the movies just in time for the Easter holiday.
Born in small town Logansport, Indiana, Greg Kinnear was the son of a career diplomat, and moved around quite a bit as a child, even living overseas. He is a veteran actor who first came into prominence when he hosted the first version of “Talk Soup” on the E! Network in 1991. Four years later, he made a splashy film debut as David Larrabee in the 1995 remake of Billy Wilder’s “Sabrina,” directed by Sydney Pollack.

Mia Wasikowska is having a very cool 2014, with outstanding roles in "The Double" and "Only Lovers Left Alive." The cherry on top might be David Cronenberg's latest film, "Maps to the Stars," where she plays a mysterious woman named Agatha Weiss.
The very Nsfw trailer for "Maps to the Stars," which is still in post-production, gives us a glimpse of the uglier side of Los Angeles. A glamorous actress named Havana Segrand (Julianne Moore) is fuming after being passed over for a major role and shares some rather colorful details about how the starlet got ahead in Hollywood. Jerome (Robert Pattinson) is a sexy young limo driver who assures Havana she's still hot in the most obvious way you could imagine. The appearance of Agatha (Wasikowska) in Havana's life alarms Havana's hands-on therapist Dr. Stafford Weiss (John Cusack), who seems especially concerned when he learns the young woman has burn scars. »

A Hollywood satire from one of cinema's most wayward and unpredictable directors: this is what excites us about David Cronenberg's forthcoming Maps To The Stars. It's about a decadent, extended Beverly Hills family that includes John Cusack's self-help manual-writing guru, his wife (Olivia Williams), and his daughter (Mia Wasikowska), who's just come out of a sanatorium after setting fire to something expensive. Oh, and there's an actress (Julianne Moore), and Robert Pattinson's limo driver, who has dreams of becoming an actor himself. Among this tangled web of characters, a dark, murderous drama plays out.
Late last year, you may recall that we got a first look at stills from David Cronenberg’s latest mind-squeezing drama, Maps To The Stars, which features a reunion with his Cosmopolis star Robert Pattinson and a host of other talented types for a tale of a twisted Hollywood dynasty. An early trailer for the movie has now arrived, to complement those first-look images. With Cronenberg venturing to Los Angeles for the first time, we’re treated to a dark comic tale about two child actors whose lives have already been chewed up and spat out by the sleazier side of showbiz. The Weiss family is a Hollywood dynasty comprising father Dr. Stafford (John Cusack), an analyst and life coach, mother Christina (Olivia Williams) and son Benjie (Evan Bird), a child star whose career she's dedicated to supporting, and daughter Agatha (Mia Wasikowska), fresh from a sanatorium where she was treated for criminal pyromania. »
The first trailer for Maps To The Stars has arrived online, giving us our first look at David Cronenberg's latest directorial outing since 2012's Cosmopolis. The new film will follow a famous Hollywood family, the Weiss's, whose world is thrown into disarray by the release of pyromaniac daughter Mia Wasikowska from a mental facility. Not that they seem like the most balanced lot to begin with, with the youngest son having gone into rehab at just nine years of age, and parents John Cusack and Julianne Moore coming off as dysfunctional...
