Though most of the films at next month’s Cannes Film Festival are keeping their plot details and advertisements to a bare minimum, David Cronenberg’s Maps to the Stars is still moving full force ahead with its marketing campaign.
Last week, we brought you the first official trailer, which embraced the sex, violence and intrigue of its tantalizing subject matter. Today, a set of new images centering on the screwed-up Hollywood dynasty at the film’s center has hit the web. Though the majority of the shots focus on the characters plated by Robert Pattinson (as the family’s limo driver) and Mia Wasikowska (as pyromaniac Agatha), stars John Cusack (as the family patriarch) and Evan Bird (who plays child actor Benjie) can also be seen in the new images, which you can check out below.
The official synopsis reads as follows:
Led by the loathsome yet funny and touching child-star Benjie, »

While most films headed to Cannes are keeping a tight seal until the lights go down and the projector goes on, that's not the case for David Cronenberg's "Maps To The Stars." That may be due for the fact that the film is opening in a handful of overseas territories this summer, so regardless of the festival, they need to start advertising. And it could be just because the director doesn't really care. Either way, more images from the movie are here. Fresh looks at Robert Pattison, Mia Wasikowska, John Cusack and more are ready for your eyeballs, in the Bruce Wagner penned tale of a twisted Hollywood dynasty, with the R-rated movie promising violence, sex, nudity and drugs. Because, obviously. And with a Competition slot, expectations will be high for this one which also features the talents of Julianne Moore in its ranks. But whether or not it »

David Cronenberg will be in attendance at the Cannes Film Festival with his latest film, Maps to the Stars starring Robert Pattinson, Julianne Moore, John Cusack, Sarah Gadon, Mia Wasikowska and Olivia Williams and in-between directing feature films it seems he's managed to finish his debut novel, "Consumed", and boy does it sound like quite the ride. Here's the official synopsis: The exhilarating debut novel by iconic filmmaker David Cronenberg: the story of two journalists whose entanglement in a French philosopher's death becomes a surreal journey into global conspiracy. Stylish and camera-obsessed, Naomi and Nathan thrive on the yellow journalism of the social-media age. They are lovers and competitors--nomadic freelancers in pursuit of sensation and depravity, encountering each other only in airport hotels and browser windows. Naomi finds herself drawn to the headlines surrounding Celestine and Aristide Arosteguy, Marxist philosophers and sexual libertines. Celestine has been found dead and mutilated in her Paris apartment. »

David Cronenberg's latest film, Maps To The Stars, opens this year but it will not be the director's only project in 2014. On top of that film starring Julianne Moore, Mia Wasikowska, Robert Pattinson, and John Cusack, Cronenberg will also make his debut as an author with his first novel, Consumed. Due to be released in the fall, Consumed will take Cronenberg fans back to his trademark body horror in a sprawling novel that has already been lauded by the director's »

If literati and legal scholars got together to dream up the most provocative lawsuit, they could hardly do better than the one that has just been filed over the 2012 film What Maisie Knew. When the movie came out, it was described by almost everyone as an adaptation of Henry James' 1897 novel of the same name. But according to Ronee Sue Blakley, the film wasn't so much inspired by 19th-century American literature as a late 20th-century custody fight.

With its premiere set for the Cannes Film Festival, new Maps to the Stars images have gone online. David Cronenberg's latest 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. The two trailers have been cryptic, and we'll probably get a better sense of the movie after it plays at the festival. Hit the jump to check out the images. The film stars John Cusack, Julianne Moore, Mia Wasikowska, Robert Pattinson, Olivia Williams, and Sarah Gadon. Maps to the Stars opens in France and Italy on May 21st. A U.S. release date has yet to be announced. Here’s the »

We are less than a month away from the Cannes Film Festival, and red carpets are being shampooed and hotels are making their towels extra fluffy for the array of stars that will descend upon the south of France. We'll be there with our eyes firmly on the movies, and today brings with it even more images from one of the hottest tickets at the fest. David Cronenberg's "Maps To The Stars" sees him reuniting with "Cosmopolis" lead Robert Pattinson (who also has "The Rover" hitting Cannes), for a tale about a twisted Hollywood family. John Cusack, Julianne Moore, Mia Wasikowska, Olivia Williams and Sarah Gadon co-star in the Bruce Wagner-penned movie, one that promises the standard amount of Cronenberg R-rated fun, with the film getting that stamp due to the violence, sex, nudity and drugs contained within. Whether or not it's Palme d'Or-worthy, we'll just have to wait and see, »

The 53-year-old lost control of her red hair as they got caught in a wind spell after a lunch date with a friend here April 19, reports dailymail.co.uk.

Fans of body horror master David Cronenberg will be hoping for a late career revival when his new film, 2014's Maps to the Stars, has its grand unveiling at Cannes this May, particularly after the joint disappointment of 2011 psychoanalysis drama A Dangerous Method and the overly faithful Cosmopolis (2012). 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 a stint in a drug rehab clinic and is ready to gte back into acting.

‘The Rover’ trailer HD: Robert Pattinson and Guy Pearce in David Michôd’s Australian Outback-set thriller (photo: Robert Pattinson in ‘The Rover’) The Rover, David Michôd’s futuristic, Australian Outback-set thriller that will premiere at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival (Midnight Screenings), has a new trailer. Guy Pearce and Robert Pattinson star in this dark tale about a middle-aged man, Eric (Pearce), hunting down the members of a gang who have stolen his last and most prized possession: his beat-up car. Pattinson, best known as the sparkling vampire Edward Cullen in the Twilight film series, plays a (now) former member of the gang, Rey — left behind to die after he’s seriously injured in a fight. See The Rover trailer below. The youthful Rey, in fact, is unlike the other gang members. “If you don’t learn to fight," Eric warns him in a hard-to-understand mumble, "your death’s gonna come real soon. »

Today there's good news for Robert Pattinson fans and pyromaniacs alike: The first trailer for David Cronenberg's "Maps to the Stars" has finally been released, and it looks downright amazing. The movie, which will likely have its first screening next month at the Cannes Film Festival, tells the story of a dark and sordid series of entanglements up in the Hollywood hills.

Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart may both be headed to Cannes! The famous exes both have movies scheduled to appear during the upcoming 2014 Cannes Film Festival in France. Pattinson has two films making their debut at the festival: Maps to the Stars, the racy Hollywood drama in which R.Pattz has a steamy sex scene with Julianne Moore, and The Rover, which takes place in the Australian outback. As for Stewart, her film Clouds of Sils Maria has been selected to appear. That means the former Twilight couple could be very close to reuniting across the pond next month (Twi-hards can only hope!). Speaking of Cannes couples, Ryan Gosling's directorial debut, Lost River, will appear at »
The 2014 Cannes Film Festival slate has officially arrived, and it’s enough to make a cinephile salivate. Where else can you find the best of the best of filmmaking — including Atom Egoyan, Jean-Luc Godard, Mike Leigh, Xavier Dolan, Wim Wenders, David Cronenberg and Alice Rohrwacher — together at the same party?

This week we told you about David Cronenberg’s Maps to the Stars, featuring Mia Wasikowska, Julianne Moore, John Cusack, and Robert Pattinson in a tale about a...

eOne has released the first two trailers for David Cronenberg’s upcoming Hollywood ghost story Maps to the Stars, which stars Mia Wasikowska (Stoker), Julianne Moore (Carrie), John Cusack (The Frozen Ground), Robert Pattinson (Twilight), Olivia Williams (Sabotage) and Sarah Gadon (The Amazing Spider-Man 2). Check them out after the official synopsis…
Led by the loathsome yet funny and touching child-star Benjie, we witness the convoluted world of shallow, selfish celebrities and their minions, all of whom are about to be manipulated and destroyed by the young woman who literally represents the fruit of their twisted machinations, Agatha, Benjie’s tormented, apparently psychotic sister. As much as it is a sharp, comic look at a vacant and corrupt world, Maps To The Stars is also a haunting ghost story.
Maps to the Stars will premiere at Cannes, and is currently without a fixed release date.

Maybe Cannes topper Thierry Fremaux didn't want two Rob Pattinson movies in his competition lineup. Pattinson rejoins venerable Cannes auteur David Cronenberg for "Map to the Stars," a follow-up to "Cosmopolis," which earned the "Twilight" star his best reviews to date. Written by Hollywood satirist Bruce Wagner ("Scenes from the Class Struggle in Beverly Hills"), "Map to the Stars" stars Pattinson as a limo driver who flirts with both anxious movie star Julianne Moore and her pyromaniac assistant Mia Wasikowska; John Cusack and Olivia Williams star as Hollywood players. Here's the official synopsis (trailer below): The Weiss family is the archetypical Hollywood dynasty: father Sanford is an analyst and coach, who has made a fortune with his self-help manuals; mother Christina mostly looks after the career of their son Benjie, 13, a child star. One of Sanford's clients, Havana, is an actress who dreams of shooting a remake of the movie that made her mother, »

This morning the lineup was announced for the annual Cannes Film Festival, the glittery European festival where a premium is placed luxury and decadence and many super important, Oscar-bound films make their starry debut. And this year's festival, which didn't include any big surprises or giant-sized premieres, is still an embarrassment of riches nonetheless.
The opening night film, "Grace of Monaco," features Nicole Kidman as Grace Kelly. This lavish period biopic, directed by "La Vie En Rose" filmmaker Olivier Dahan, had been previously announced. But it still set the bar pretty high, at least when it came to prestige movies starring big time celebrities. Thankfully, the rest of the slate followed through.
Amongst the movies with big names are "Moneyball" director Bennett Miller's based on a true story "Foxcatcher," which features Steve Carell, Mark Ruffalo, and Channing Tatum; genius French director (and Cannes favorite) Olivier Assayas's drama "Clouds of Sils Maria, »
