Earlier today eOne films served up the very first movie trailer (below) for their upcoming "Maps To The Stars" indie/drama flick, which features former Twilight Saga mega star, Robert Pattinson, in raunchy action. At one point, he's spotted getting his freak on, doggy style, in the back of a limo with Julianne Moore's character, Havana Segrand. There's also a lot of other adult action going on, so kids, this isn't for you. Adults, check it out,below. The movie stars: Julianne Moore, John Cusack, Robert Pattinson, Sarah Gadon, Mia Wasikowska, Olivia Williams, and Evan Bird. The new flick follows the lives of Weiss family, an archetypical Hollywood dynasty, Dr. Stafford Weiss is a psychotherapist, who has made a fortune with his self-help manuals.

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, »

On the heels of yesterday's first trailer for the almost certainly, Cannes-bound Maps to the Stars, David Cronenberg's new film, comes a second trailer for the film, this one even more inappropriate for the workplace environment than the last so I've thrown an age gate on the trailer. As I said yesterday with the first trailer, Maps to the Stars is described as a contemporary tale exploring the demons of our celebrity-obsessed society, story follows the Weiss family, which is led by Stafford (John Cusack), a psychotherapist and life coach who made his fortune with self-help books. His wife (Olivia Williams) is the overbearing mother-manager of their 13-year-old son (Evan Bird), a TV star recently out of drug rehab. Their estranged daughter (Mia Wasikowska) has just been released from a psychiatric hospital and befriended a limo driver (Robert Pattinson) who is also an aspiring actor. The film is set »

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 film stars John Cusack as Stanford Weiss, a millionaire who made his money with self-help manuals. His wife, played by Olivia Williams, serves as manager to their child star son Benjie (Evan Bird), who recently finished rehab.
Meanwhile, Benjie’s sister, played by Mia Wasikowska, was recently treated for criminal pyromania. Julianne Moore’s character is an actress and client of Stanford’s who wants to remake a ’60s film that made her now-deceased mother Clarice famous. She is shown in the trailer getting hot and heavy with her limo driver, a.k.a. Robert Pattinson.
While no domestic release date has been announced yet, it’s likely to screen at this year’s Cannes in May. eOne will distribute in the U. »

It’s a good day when we discover a trailer for a new David Cronenberg film. For the unfamiliar, Sound On Sight was initially called The Naked Lunch back when we launched in 2008, so needless to say, Cronenberg is one of our favourite filmmakers. And while I wasn’t the biggest fan of Cosmopolis, his second consecutive collaboration with Robert Pattinson looks promising. The film stars Mia Wasikoska as as Agatha, a young woman who bears a visible external scar, and some pretty deep internal demons. Rounding up the cast is Julianne Moore, John Cusack, Olivia Williams and Sarah Gadon making an appearance in her third film directed by the Canadian filmmaker. Maps to the Stars has no North American release date yet, but we expect it will debut at Cannes in May. Watch the trailer below. Enjoy!

Following up on A Dangerous Method, a Freudian analysis of human sexuality, and Cosmopolis, a dark satire of the Occupy movement, noted provocateur David Cronenberg is set to continue reaching the darkest corners of our collective psyches with his next film, Maps to the Stars.
The director’s involvement alone was enough to put this project (about the twisted members of a modern Hollywood dynasty) on my radar, but now that the first trailer has dropped, I can say for certain that people are going to be talking about Maps to the Stars all throughout the year.
The footage surely begs a lot of questions, but for a first preview, it does hint at a lot of really interesting plot points (by all appearances, it’s more of a sales trailer for festivals than anything else). There’s limo sex, truly twisted family dynamics, hidden pasts, a pyromaniac and the »

The dark satire stars Mia Wasikowska as Agatha Weiss, a sulky girl with a troubled past and a host of personality disorders aiming to make it as actress Havana Segrand’s (Julianne Moore) personal assistant. But, as eOne Films’ first international trailer reveals, Agatha may also have some sinister motives surrounding her estranged family. Her brother, Benjie (Evan Bird), is a drug-addled child star who her mother (Olivia Williams) manages, while her father (John Cusack) writes self-help books. »

The lives of a Hollywood family are put on display in the first trailer and poster for director David Cronenberg's Maps to the Stars. John Cusack plays Stafford Weiss, a psychotherapist who reluctantly 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 befriends Agatha, with Julianne Moore portraying Stafford's wife, who wants to remake a 1960s movie that made her mother a star. Carrie Fisher, Olivia Williams and Sarah Gadon co-star in this upcoming drama from Entertainment One, which doesn't have a release date set at this time.

L.A. is crazy, with all its sunshine, traffic, reality-tv stars, child-actor-drug-addicts, self-help millionaires, criminal pyromaniacs, and vampire limo drivers. Okay, the last few are just from David Cronenberg's upcoming satire, Maps to the Stars. (The last one isn’t actually in the movie; it’s just a joke about Robert Pattinson playing a driver.) The film stars John Cusack, Olivia Williams, Mia Wasikowska, and Julianne Moore. There’s no release date, but whichever day they pick, we bet it will be a nice day outside in L.A. »

Robert Pattinson did not get enough limo sex in David Cronenberg's Cosmopolis, so the director is giving him a second chance with Maps to the Stars, the trailer for which just debuted. Mia Wasikowska stars as Agatha, a pyromaniac recently released from a mental hospital. Her father (John Cusack), a Hollywood self-help guru, hears about her release from a client (Julianne Moore) and vows not to let his daughter mess things up for his family again. Robert Pattinson plays a driver (who eventually ends up doing the deed with Moore in the backseat), Olivia Williams plays Cusack's wife, and apparently Carrie Fisher plays Carrie Fisher. This whole thing is bizarre, and I'm really going to need some more information before I'm sold on it, even with Pattinson's sexy appearance. There's no Us release date yet, but the film should be out some time in 2014. Source: Entertainment One »
