1. Dead Ringers
Two Jeremy Irons doing anything would be scary: his turn in 1988’s Dead Ringers as good gynaecologist, bad gynaecologist is truly terrifying. Irons plays identical twin doctors Beverly and Eliot Mantle with dizzying ease and effect: you give up looking for the special effects, because you forget there are any. Genevieve Bujold’s Claire gets far more than she bargained for: sinister is heaped upon tragic when she goes to their clinic because of her infertility and is drawn darkly downhill into the brothers’ world of women-sharing, paranoid delusions, assault against patients and an abundance of prescription drugs. Beverly and Eliot’s souls are so close that they have grown interdependent and tangled, like the branches of trees planted too close together. Body horror is given a stark slant when Beverly attacks a patient with a specially-made medical tool, and the spectre of partly hidden female genitalia hangs »

Focus World has released the brand new U.S. theatrical trailer & poster for Maps To The Stars, directed by David Cronenberg & starring Julianne Moore, Mia Wasikowska with John Cusack and Robert Pattinson.
Cronenberg is equally known for not flinching from any subject, and for making films that are as challenging and substantial as they are suspenseful and visually compelling. Early in his career, he made a series of vivid, fantastical thrillers including Scanners, Videodrome, The Fly, Dead Ringers, Naked Lunch, eXistenZ and Spider. More recently, his filmmaking has become even more expansive with the high-style crime thrillers A History of Violence and Eastern Promises, the psychological, sex- infused historical drama about Freud and Jung, A Dangerous Method, and his adaptation of Cosmopolis which takes place almost entirely in a billionaire’s limousine on one fateful trip through the city.
For Cronenberg, Maps To The Stars was another chance to switch »

Robert Pattinson has reteamed with his Cosmopolis director, David Cronenberg, for a movie that looks even stranger than the 2012 thriller. The trailer for Maps to the Stars has been released, and it's pretty stressful. 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, who has been nominated for a Golden Globe for her performance) and vows not to let his daughter mess things up for his family again. Pattinson plays a limo driver (who eventually ends up getting sexy with Moore), and Olivia Williams plays Cusack's wife. This whole thing is bizarre, and it will be out on Feb. 27.

David Cronenberg's Cosmopolis really rubbed me the wrong way, so much so that I do not really care what he has to offer next. That is a shame because I generally really like his filmography. But... I just cannot get interested in Maps to the Stars. It has been even more polarizing than Cosmopolis, and Brad's review certainly does not help its case. Well, for those of you eagerly awaiting it, still undecided about it, or that just like trailers, a new domestic trailer is below for you to watch, along with a new poster for the film. I will admit, the new poster is pretty awesome. I am fully prepared to call this a good film if it ends up being one. I know Cronenberg is capable of that, and with a cast that includes Julianne Moore (who won Best Actress at Cannes for this film), Mia Wasikowska, »

"Now that you're in Tinseltown, what are you gonna do?" Everyone has their own idea of the glamor in Hollywood, but David Cronenberg's version of the home of movies in Maps to the Stars is anything but wonderful. Julianne Moore, Mia Wasikowska, John Cusack and Robert Pattinson star in this ensemble of four people who seem to just be wandering through life in Hollywood. This trailer paints a pretty intense picture, almost like a thriller, which is exactly what we would expect from Cronenberg. The performances seem to be the driving force behind the odd drama, but here's hoping the story is just as good. Here's the Us trailer for David Cronenberg's Maps to the Stars from Focus Features: Check out the previous Canadian trailer right here and a UK trailer right here. Maps to the Stars is directed by David Cronenberg (Scanners, Videodrome, The Fly, Eastern Promises, »

How's this for racy?
Singer Fka Twigs is showing off her flawless physique on the cover of V magazine's 93rd issue, going topless and sporting nothing but a nude pair of undies and a strategically placed necklace.
Photos: Stars In Their Underwear
The usually private 26-year-old singer talks to V about her unique sound, and gets defensive about her music being labeled "alternative R&B."
"'Alternative R&B' is patronizing to R&B," she says, via E! News. "R&B is R&B -- it doesn't need an alternative. There are plenty of artists now experimenting with electronic music, manipulating sounds. We can make a train into a synth. We can make drips into hi-hats. I can record sounds on my phone and make a »
