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) 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.

The last four or five editions of the Cannes Film Festival have been heavy on global movie star power. Sure, it won't always compete with Hollywood fueled Toronto, but the programmers have made sure the paparazzi have had someone pretty to photograph on the festival's legendary red carpet. 2014 is no different. (You could also argue more well known actors have jumped into he prestige game in their off time over the past decade, but, frankly, it's somewhat cyclical.) With that in mind, here are 10 big names who we expect to follow their films to Cannes in just a few weeks. Robert Pattinson The former "Twilight" star has been to Cannes before. He starred in David Cronenberg's drama "Cosmopolis" which premiered on the Croisette in 2012. Now, he's back with another Cronenberg title, "Map to the Stars," and David Michôd's "The Rover" alongside Guy Pearce. Nicole Kidman We've known this one for awhile. »

Charlie.s Country, which stars David Gulpilil as an aging man who struggles to understand how he should define himself as an Aboriginal in modern Australia, will screen in the Un Certain Regard sidebar.
The South Australian Film Corp. and Screen Australia invested in both films. .This caps off a pretty good 12 months for Safc-backed films,. said CEO Richard Harris, also referring to The Babadook, 52 Tuesdays and The Infinite Man.
"This recognition from Cannes is very significant for the possibilities of the film in the marketplace," de Heer said. "I am so pleased for David, for all his effort to be rewarded and for »

God bless us, every one! It's April 17th, which means it's the cinephile's version of Christmas, because today sees the announcement of the line-up for the 2014 Cannes Film Festival, still the biggest and most prestigious international fest in the calendar. Rumors have been flying for a few weeks now, and we've known for a while that the festival would open with Nicole Kidman-starrer "Grace Of Monaco," in which the Oscar-winner plays legendary star-turned-princess Grace Kelly, but now the full festival line-up has been announced, and it looks pretty promising. Among the hotly-tipped movies that have been confirmed this morning are David Cronenberg's inside-Hollywood tale "Maps To The Stars" starring Mia Wasikowska, Julianne Moore, John Cusack, Olivia Williams and Robert Pattinson, "The Rover," "Animal Kingdom" helmer David Michod's apocalyptic follow-up, also starring Pattinson along with Guy Pearce and Scoot McNairy (which is a Midnight Screening rather than in-competition as. »

Ryan Gosling, Tommy Lee Jones, Bennett Miller, David Cronenberg are among the directors whose films will screen at the 67th Cannes Film Festival, Cannes organizers announced on Thursday morning in Paris. The festival's most prestigious section, the main competition lineup, will feature 18 films, including Jones’ “The Homesman,” with Meryl Streep and Hilary Swank; Miller's “Foxcatcher,” with Channing Tatum, Mark Ruffalo and Steve Carrell; and Cronenberg's “Maps to the Stars,” with Robert Pattinson and Julianne Moore; and “Farewell to Language” from legendary French director Jean-Luc Godard, who has promised the festival that he will attend.

Tommy Lee Jones, Bennett Miller, David Cronenberg and Atom Egoyan will square off with Mike Leigh, Ken Loach and Michel Hazanavicius for the Palme d’Or at the 67th annual Cannes Film Festival, which unveiled its official selection lineup this morning in Paris.
In a wide-ranging competition slate that will include both 83
Fremaux also said that more titles might be added to the selection between now and the festival, which runs May 14-25. The competition, which typically includes around 20 features, currently stands at just 18.

Cannes Film Festival director Thierry Fremaux sent out mixed messages in his -- very long, as usual -- preamble to announcing this year's Cannes Film Festival lineup. First he mentioned a focus on newer, fresher filmmakers, but mentioned elsewhere that "Cannes is an event for the regulars." Predictably enough, the latter statement turned out to be closer to the truth: of the 18 films competing for this year's Palme d'Or, 13 have been to the dance before. (And of the Competition virgins, Bennett Miller and Xavier Dolan are hardly unknowns.) Early on, meanwhile, Fremaux made the initially bold statement that 15 women were in the Official Selection, promising a bounty of female directors for jury president Jane Campion to consider. It turned out to be a slight manipulation of the truth: several of those women are involved in portmanteau films, while only two of them -- Naomi Kawase and surprise inclusion Alice Rohrwacher »

With only hours ago before the official selection for the Main Competition is announced, we’ve narrowed our final predictions to the following titles that we’re crystal-balling as the films that will be included on Thierry Fremaux’s highly anticipated list. Despite an obvious drought of Asian auteurs (we’re thinking the rumored frontrunner Takashi Miike won’t be included in tomorrow’s list) who’s to say there won’t be some definite surprises, like Jia Zhang-ke’s A Touch of Sin last year.
Several hopefuls appear not to be ready in time, including Malick, Hsou-hsien, Cristi Puiu, and Innarritu, to name a few. But there does appear to be a high quantity of exciting titles from some of cinema’s leading auteurs. We’re still a bit tentative about whether Xavier Dolan’s latest, Mommy, will get a main competition slot—instead, we’re predicting another surprise, »

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 »

Paris – Tommy Lee Jones' The Homesman, Moneyball director Bennett Miller's Foxcatcher, Michel Hazanavicius' Chechnya war film The Search, Ken Loach's Jimmy's Hall and David Cronenberg's Maps to the Stars will all be part of the competition lineup of the 67th edition of the Cannes Film Festival in May. Overall, 18 films, down from 20 last year, will compete for the festival's main award. One film could be added. The opening film, Olivier Dahan's Grace of Monaco, will screen out of competition. The films feature Meryl Streep, Hilary Swank, Channing Tatum, Robert Pattinson, John Cusack, Ryan Reynolds and other stars in a year that will see a

Yesterday two new trailers appeared for David Cronenberg's Maps to the Stars. I'm not embedding them specifically because I can't find sharp images (the main one floating around seems like a bad stolen print of a trailer - very underlit) and the international one (Nsfw) has too many auto-play ads and works less well as a coherent snapshot of the movie.
I'm hoping Maps skirts the usual trends of public reaction to Cronenberg films. It often follows this pattern:
1. Healthy amount of media coverage and excitement before their films premiere (remember all the A Dangerous Method hoopla?)
2. A curiously muted release (sometimes only limited) with a tiny bit of coverage focused on whichever big star is doing whichever genuinely weird thing they're asked to do in the movie. Think Robert Pattinson getting an enema in the limo in Cosmopolis
3. Almost no follow up conversation online or lines at the »

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...

Perry, 29, may have denied romantic link-ups with 27-year-old Pattinson in the past, but the two were seen spending a lot of time together at the California Music Festival, reigniting their romance rumours, reports contactmusic.com.

Australia hasn.t had a film selected for official competition at the Cannes Film Festival or the Un Certain Regard sidebar since 2011 and in the Directors. Fortnight section since 2009.
But the prospects are looking brighter this year. According to If.s straw poll among industry figures, David Michôd.s The Rover, Rolf de Heer.s Charlie.s Country and Zak Hilditch.s These Final Hours are promising candidates for one or more of the festival.s competitive sections.
The official competition line-up for the 67th Cannes festival and Un Certain Regard will be unveiled on Thursday night local time by fest director Thierry Frémaux.
Baz Luhrmann.s The Great Gatsby was the opening night film in Cannes last year, out of competition. Julia Leigh.s Sleeping Beauty was the last Australian film to screen in competition in 2011, the same year that Ivan Sen.s Toomelah was invited to Un Certain Regard. »

Leonardo DiCaprio and his girlfriend, Toni Garrn, escaped to Bora Bora for a couple's getaway last week. The duo embraced in the crystal-clear waters and soaked up the sun on a private beach, where Toni sunbathed topless. The romantic getaway came just before their trip to Coachella Valley, CA, where Leo and Toni checked out the shows, partied with friends, and Leo let loose dancing to Mgmt. He wasn't the only celebrity at the music festival, since Robert Pattinson, Julianne Hough, Beyoncé, and others descended on the desert for the annual event as well. Leo's been enjoying a bit of a break since award season wrapped up last month, but he'll be back to work soon, since it was announced that he's starring in the thriller The Revenant later this year.

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. "Maps to the Stars" is rumored to debut at ...

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, »
