What do you when your presumed frontrunner is no longer in the Oscar race? It’s been announced that Focus World will not give Maps to the Stars an Oscar »

Focus World announced yesterday they'd picked up David Cronenberg's Maps to the Stars for domestic distribution with the intention of releasing it in 2015. The film premiered at the Cannes Film Festival to somewhat mixed reviews, though specific attention was garnered for Julianne Moore who took home the fest's Best Actress award. It will next screen at the Toronto Film Festival followed by a New York Film Festival presentation. Naturally, when I first heard the news Focus World would give it a 2015 release I assumed that would come with a limited awards run in late 2014 along with a campaign for, at the very least, Moore, an actress long-thought overdue for an Oscar win, but it seems that might not be the case. Variety spoke with an individual that says an awards run "could" happen, but perhaps the buzz surrounding what is said to be a bit of a non-Academy character is scaring Focus off. »

John Cusack portrays Stafford Weiss, a psychotherapist who reunites with his daughter Agatha (Mia Wasikowska) after her release from a sanatorium where she was being treated for criminal pyromania. Robert Pattinson co-stars as a limo driver and aspiring actor who becomes close to Agatha, with Julianne Moore playing the role of Stafford's wife, who wants to remake a 1960's movie that made her mother a star. Julianne Moore earned best actress honors for the role at the Cannes International Film Festival in May.
David Cronenberg directed the film from a script by Bruce Wagner. Martin Katz, Saïd Ben Saïd, Michel Merkt, Renee Tab and Benedict Carver produced the project. The film will be screening at the Toronto International Film Festival »
With strong reviews out of the Cannes Film Festival (read ours), appearances at the Toronto International Film Festival and the New York Film Festival on the horizon, and an imminent U.K. release (check out the trailer), you might think that it would be a priority for eOne to get David Cronenberg's "Maps To The Stars" into theaters stateside Asap. But it appears that's not the case. In fact, the distributor has handed the movie off to Focus World, which means you'll be waiting a lot longer to see this film, and it may not even be on a big screen near you. Screen Daily reports whatever awards season chances "Maps To The Stars" might've had (three time Oscar nominee Julianne Moore won Best Actress in Cannes for her turn in the movie) have been snuffed out, as the film won't be released in the U.S. until early 2015.

Julianne Moore can kiss goodbye to any hopes she was nursing for an Oscar campaign for David Cronenberg's Cannes Best Actress winner "Maps to the Stars," which is set to play Toronto and New York festivals. Canadian distributor eOne was going to distribute the film stateside, but it has now sold U.S. rights not to Universal specialty distributor Focus Features--the arm that would handle an Oscar effort--but Focus World, their digital distribution arm, which plans an early 2015 release. The entertaining satire of Hollywood boasts a strong cast including Cronenberg fave Rob Pattinson, who canoodles on screen with both an anxiety-ridden movie star (Moore) and the troubled daughter (Mia Wasikowska) of psychotherapist/coach to the stars (John Cusack) and his wife (Olivia Williams), who manages his son's career. Ordinarily you would expect this to have a strong theatrical release, but this kind of movie does well on VOD, »

Filmmaker David Cronenberg’s latest effort will find its way to U.S. screens early next year. Ahead of the film’s North American debut at the Toronto International Film Festival, Focus World announced today that it has acquired U.S. distribution for Maps to the Stars with plans to release the film stateside in early 2015. The film follows an archetypical Hollywood dynasty including a writer of self-help manuals (John Cusack), his wife (Olivia Williams) who manages the career of their 13-year-old son, and their daughter (Mia Wasikowska), who was recently released from a sanatorium where she was treated for criminal pyromania. The plot also includes Havana (Julianne Moore), an actress who wants to remake a movie that starred her now-deceased mother. The pic premiered earlier this year at the Cannes Film Festival, and while the overall reaction was mixed, Moore drew high praise for her performance and won the Best Actress award. »

After winning the best actress award in Cannes for “Maps to the Stars,” Julianne Moore was considered a strong bet in this year’s Oscar race for her turn as a washed-up star in the David Cronenberg drama. But the overdue actress, who has been nominated for four Academy Awards without winning, could be sitting out of awards season.
In a deal that closed last week, Focus World picked up U.S. distribution rights to the Cronenberg drama from Canadian outfit Entertainment One (eOne), sources tell Variety exclusively. “Maps to the Stars” won’t premiere stateside until early 2015.
Focus World is the alternative distribution division of Focus Features, and it hasn’t been decided if the drama will be released on VOD, play in theaters domestically or some combination thereof. “Maps” could get an Oscar qualifying theatrical release at the end of 2014, so that it would at least be eligible for Academy Awards nominations, »

“I’ve been searching for you, Mr. Ward.”
Ben Barnes (Dorian Gray, The Chronicles of Narnia) stars in next year’s Seventh Son, the film adaptation of The Spook’s Apprentice, which is the first installment in Joseph Delaney’s best-selling The Wardstone Chronicles.
Tom Ward’s (Barnes) quite life as a farmhand is upended when he learns that he is the eponymous seventh son of a seventh son. As such, he is able to see supernatural beasts, a useful talent for someone now under the wing of a warrior -- the mysterious Master John Gregory a.k.a. “The Spook” (Jeff Bridges) -- who fights off evil spirits for a living.

More than a year ago, we saw the first trailer for Seventh Son, a young adult fantasy flick starring Jeff Bridges and Ben Barnes. Then the film got caught in the crossfire during the epic Warner Brothers/Legendary divorce, and Seventh Son was delayed. Now it is in the hands of Universal, and finally has its second trailer. I’ll warn you now though to brace yourselves, as this one looks spectacularly bad.
Ben Barnes is the titular hero, a prophesied wielder of great powers now residing in a land of magic and legend. He meets “the sole remaining warrior of a mystical order” (Jeff Bridges, sporting a wizard-y beard), leaves his livelihood as a farmhand, and joins up with the wise old mage to battle an evil dark queen (Julianne Moore). In between there will be CGI monsters of every description, Jeff Bridges will put on an inexplicable accent, »
