Opening Night – World Premiere
David Fincher, USA, 2014, Dcp, 150m
David Fincher’s film version of Gillian Flynn’s phenomenally successful best seller (adapted by the author) is one wild cinematic ride, a perfectly cast and intensely compressed portrait of a recession-era marriage contained within a devastating depiction of celebrity/media culture, shifting gears as smoothly as a Maserati 250F. Ben Affleck is Nick Dunne, whose wife Amy (Rosamund Pike) goes missing on the day of their fifth anniversary. Neil Patrick Harris is Amy’s old boyfriend Desi, Carrie Coon (who played Honey in Tracy Letts’s acclaimed production of Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?) is Nick’s sister Margo, Kim Dickens (Treme, Friday Night Lights) is Detective Rhonda Boney, and Tyler Perry is Nick’s superstar lawyer Tanner Bolt. At once a grand panoramic vision of middle America, a uniquely disturbing exploration of the fault lines in a marriage, »

Back in June, we were among a group of reporters invited out to the New Mexico set of Wgn America‘s new drama Manhattan (airing Sundays at 10pm Et).

Check it out below. Plot: The Weiss family is the archetypical Hollywood dynasty: father Sanford (Cusack) is an analyst and coach, who has made a fortune with his self-help manuals; mother Christina (Olivia Williams) mostly looks after the career of their son Benjie (Evan Bird), 13, a child star. One of Sanford's clients, Havana (Moore), is an actress who dreams of shooting a remake of the movie that made her mother, Clarice (Gadon), a star in the '60s. Clarice is dead now and visions of her come to haunt Havana at night. Adding to the toxic mix, Benjie has just come off a rehab program he joined when he was 9 and his sister, »
A new trailer has arrived online for Maps To The Stars, David Cronenberg’s new film, charting the malaise of a Hollywood dynasty headed up by John Cusack and Olivia Williams. Their glossy world is turned on its head with the return of their two children from rehab and the psych ward respectively, neither of whom seem much more balanced for their treatment. Factor in Robert Pattinson’s aspiring writer / actor and Julianne Moore’s depressive aging diva, and all the pieces are in place for a look at one of Hollywood’s less appealing...

Maps marks the first time that director Cronenberg has filmed in Los Angeles, and also marks his first film in two years, since 2012 Cosmopolis. The film stars Robert Pattinson (The Rover), co-stars with the likes of Julianne Moore (The Kids Are Alright), John Cusack (High Fidelity), Mia Wasikowska (Tracks), Sarah Gadon (Enemy), Olivia Williams (Sabotage) and Carrie Fisher (Star Wars).
Here’s 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, »

The Weiss family are your typical ‘Hollywood’ family, with each member tainted by its lure in some way. Dr. Stafford Weiss (John Cusack) is a psychotherapist, while wife Cristina (Olivia Williams) looks after their 13 year-old son and child-star Benjie (Evan Bird), a spoiled brat if ever there was one. Estranged sister Agatha (Mia Wasikowska) returns from her stay in a sanatorium and lands a job as a Pa for C-list celebrity Havana Segrand (Julianne Moore), coincidentally a patient of Stafford’s. As word spreads that Agatha has returned, Stafford will do anything to keep her away from his wife and son. Robert Pattinson and Sarah Gadon co-star.

We still don’t know exactly when David Cronenberg’s Hollywood satire Maps to the Stars will be landing stateside, but it’s still very high on our list of films to see. Boasting a stellar cast in addition to a script by Bruce Wagner (a writer renowned for his biting views on the entertainment industry), it has the potential to be one of Cronenberg’s most exciting films in years. Now, a UK trailer for Maps to the Stars has popped up online, giving us another look at the movie.
John Cusack, Olivia Williams, Evan Bird and Mia Wasikowska star as members of a powerful Hollywood family whose demons pit them against both themselves and one another. Robert Pattinson also toplines as a limo driver who comes into contact both with the family’s estranged daughter (Wasikowska) and with a neurotic, aging actress (Julianne Moore). Maps to the Stars looks equal parts transfixing, »

Entertainment One UK has released a new Maps to the Stars trailer 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.

If you have listened to last week’s Empire Podcast (and if not, head to the bottom of the page where you can find it lurking), you may have heard Robert Pattinson talking about his second collaboration with David Cronenberg, Maps To The Stars. The new trailer for the twisted drama has arrived. Maps spends time with a few unusual Hollywood-based characters, including psychotherapist to the stars Stafford Weiss (John Cusack) and his wife Christina (Olivia Williams), stage mother to 13-year-old acting spawn Benjie (Evan Bird) who has just emerged from drug rehab. Yes, at 13.Also back is their estranged daughter Agatha (Mia Wasikowska), recently released from a psychiatric hospital and working for highly-strung star Havana Segrand (Julianne Moore), one of Stafford’s clients whose career heydays are behind her and who is battling for a role originally played by her mother in the 1960s. Agatha, in turn, forms a »

David Cronenberg's multi-stranded Hollywood satire follows a mysterious, celebrity-obsessed young woman (Mia Wasikowska), who comes to Los Angeles and takes a job working for neurotic actress Havana (Julianne Moore).
It seems like we've been waiting forever for David Cronenberg's Maps to the Stars and probably because not only has it already played the Cannes Film Festival, but because there have been so many trailers and previews and today offers yet another new UK trailer for the movie starring Robert Pattinson and Cannes Best Actress winner Julianne Moore. Here's the synopsis: The Weiss family are an archetypical Hollywood dynasty - Dr Stafford Weiss (John Cusack) is a psychotherapist whose self-help books have made him a fortune.

The latest film from a resurgent David Cronenberg played to great reviews at Cannes, where it debuted earlier this year. It is further evidence that Cronenberg is one of the most interesting directors working today.
Whether it is a keen choice of subject matter (Maps to the Stars centres on the black hole of celebrity) or his newly found muse (take another bow Mr. Pattison) there’s little doubt of his potency and relevance. Here’s the new trailer for Map to the Stars, a synopsis is below but check out the beautifully held images on show.
The 29th of September is when you can join in the fun.

What happens if you round up the nation's most brilliant scientific minds, seclude them in a makeshift city in the middle of the desert, and drown their lives in secrecy? These are the questions addressed in Manhattan, the new historical drama from creator Sam Shaw (Masters of Sex) and director Thomas Schlamme (The West Wing). Manhattan offers a semi-fictionalized version of the infamous Manhattan Project - the clandestine research and development project that resulted in the creation of the atomic bomb. While the events of the show are based on history, Manhattan largely steers clear of iconic figures like J. Robert Oppenheimer and Leslie Groves, and focuses instead on the interpersonal drama between fictitious characters as they contend with the costs of secrecy and isolation. Manhattan airs Sunday nights on Wgn America. I recently visited the set in Santa Fe, New Mexico where the labs, homes, and barracks of Los »
