‘Maps to the Stars’ Official Trailer: Dysfunction in Hollywood’s Hills

11 September 2014 3:43 PM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

It might not be accurate to say that director David Cronenberg has matured since his days of being the veritable king of body horror with movies like The Fly and Videodrome, but his tastes certainly have changed. His most recent film, Cosmopolis, was a bizarre experimental thriller which was largely based around watching lead actor Robert Pattinson monologue in the back of a limousine, and prior to that Cronenberg had become far more interested in directing dark, character-oriented dramas like A Dangerous Method and A History of Violence.

Pattinson’s involvement wasn’t quite enough to get Twilight fans flocking out in droves to see Cosmopolis, which was ultimately a box office flop, but Cronenberg’s prestige as a director means that he has never had trouble attracting big names to his movies. Maps to the Stars, his upcoming ...

Things get a little crazy in David Cronenberg's Maps to the Stars trailer

11 September 2014 5:51 AM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

If David Cronenberg's last film, Cosmopolis, didn't do the trick for you, then perhaps Maps To The Stars will. The film focuses on a mostly loathsome set of characters who embody Hollywood archetypes with that Cronenberg touch. While the film is making the rounds at this year's Tiff, a new trailer has hit the world wide web (people still call it that, right?) to tingle your senses. I'm pretty iffy on films based on/around Hollywood, but the director »

‘Maps to the Stars’, from David Cronenberg, gets a new trailer

10 September 2014 6:24 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

With his last movie coming in 2012, Cronenberg’s new feature has now made it to festival circuit, playing most recently at the Toronto International Film Festival. Titled Maps to the Stars, Cronenberg reunites with his Cosmopolis lead Robert Pattinson in a look at a number of characters circling Hollywood, including an actress and her family, a personal assistant, and a driver, among others. The script comes from Bruce Wagner, with Pattinson joined onscreen by the likes of John Cusack, Mia Wasikowska, and Julianne Moore. In the Us, the film was originally slated for an October release but has since been pushed back to a Spring 2015. It will however be released in Canadian theatres on October 31st, and a new trailer for the film »

Julianne Moore Loses Her Mind in 'Maps to the Stars' Canadian Trailer

10 September 2014 10:32 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"Secrets kill." We've gotten glimpses of David Cronenberg's twisted and raw depiction of Hollywood with a trailer from the United Kingdom, a trailer from before the film premiered at Cannes, and also a couple other trailers before that. Now the film is poised for release next month in Canada, and a new trailer has just arrived, showing off even more of the promising performances from Julianne Moore (who won Best Actress at Cannes), Mia Wasikowska, John Cusack and Robert Pattinson. This looks pretty depressing and dark, but captivating in only the way that a director like Cronenberg can deliver. Watch! Here's the Canadian trailer for David Cronenberg's Maps to the Stars from eOne: Maps to the Stars is directed by David Cronenberg (Scanners, Videodrome, The Fly, Eastern Promises, Cosmopolis), from a script by author and screenwriter Bruce Wagner (A Nightmare on Elm Street 3). The Weiss family is the »

'Maps to the Stars' (2014) Movie Review

5 September 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Stop me if you've heard this one before... Hollywood is an incestuous town and those that dwell there are morally bankrupt. This is the concept that is drilled into the ground throughout David Cronenberg's lifeless satire, Maps to the Stars. Written by Bruce Wagner (A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors), Cronenberg defended the film at the Cannes Film Festival saying, "You could set this in Silicon Valley or on Wall Street -- anyplace people are desperate and fearful. You could set it anywhere and have the same ring ofctruth." Perhaps so, but it's not set in Silicon Valley or Wall Street (neither of which would be new concepts either), it's set in Hollywood and it's a tired story from start to finish and it was all I could do to keep from leaving the theater. Julianne Moore plays Havana, an aging actress on the brink of a breakdown, »

Review: Maps to the Stars (Tiff 2014)

4 September 2014 11:26 AM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Plot: A young burn victim (Mia Wasikowska) comes to Hollywood, where she winds up working for an ageing actress (Julianne Moore) bent on a staging a comeback. Review: Confounding. That's the only word I can think of that accurately describes David Cronenberg's latest, Maps To The Stars. Following his divisive Cosmopolis, his follow-up is similar to that film in many ways, with this taking another satiric look at the lives of the young, glamorous, and privileged. Instead »

Maps To The Stars Review [Tiff 2014]

4 September 2014 8:22 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

For a stretch in the mid-aughts, it looked as though Canadian provocateur David Cronenberg had gone a bit Hollywood, despite never shooting any of his films there. Having built a career on the psychologically and visually grotesque, the three-peat of A History of Violence, Eastern Promises and A Dangerous Method saw Cronenberg attracting big names to awards-buzz material that, while still beholden to his darker impulses, played well with critics. Then 2012’s Cosmopolis started him down a slippery slope leading back to material as confounding as it was disturbing. His latest, Maps to the Stars, marks Cronenberg’s full-blown relapse into misanthropic weirdness, but with more expensive drugs at his disposal.

The first of his pictures to actually shoot in America is just as much concerned with atrophying empire as Cosmopolis was, but centers on the sunny Hollywood rot of the entertainment industry, instead of New York’s well-tailored economic sociopathy. »

‘Maps to the Stars’ Acquired by Focus World for 2015 Release (Exclusive)

1 September 2014 4:39 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

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, »

Review: Garfield and Shannon spark in broad brush moral crisis drama '99 Homes'

28 August 2014 8:45 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Venice — The title treatment for Ramin Bahrani's Venice Competition entry consists of blood red letters on black. Filling the entire screen with blocky all-caps letters and numbers dozens of feet high, we read: 99 Homes. It looks more like the title treatment for a horror than a drama digging into a moral morass of foreclosure, subsistence level employment, and better paid but more spiritually costly work. As it turns out, it is also a horror movie of sorts. The first shot of the film itself is even a post-mortem scene, as Michael Shannon's predatory realtor Rick Carver -- and how's that for a horror movie name? -- gazes almost impassively at blood dribbling down tacky pink bathroom tiles. The contrast couldn't be more stark: Shannon in an off-white blazer so sharp it hurts (costume design by Meghan Kasperlik is on point throughout), gold watch glinting and not a hair »

Berenice Bejo Dwells on the Past; Replaces Binoche on Corbet’s “The Childhood of the Leader”

20 August 2014 8:55 PM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Sometimes life doesn’t play out like in the movies, or rather, sometimes the movies don’t play out like in real life. Actor-director Brady Corbet can fondly look back at Olivier Assayas’ Sils Maria as proof (he plays an author courting the A-lister) that Juliette Binoche was his first choice, but due to scheduling conflicts, a Cosmopolis-like reunion between the actress and Robert Pattinson will have no longer be the case. Variety reports that the matriarch role now goes to Berenice Bejo, the Oscar nominated actress who saw her last film (by hubby Michel Hazanavicius) get panned in Cannes, will next be featured alongside Melanie Laurent and Audrey Tautou in Tran Anh Hung’s Eternity. The Childhood of the Leader is now set for a November shoot in Budapest.

Gist: Co-written by Mona Fastvold (The Sleepwalker) and Corbet, this is a chilling fable about the rise of fascism »

A new UK trailer has been released for Maps to the Stars, the new film directed by David Cronenberg (The Fly, Crash), which has been getting some very good reviews on the festival circuit this year.

David Cronenberg Finds Hollywood in 'Maps to the Stars' UK Trailer

After debuting at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival, director David Cronenberg's latest film Maps to the Stars is headed to theaters in the United Kingdom this fall, and that means we get a new official trailer from across the pond while we wait to see when the film might end up hitting the big screen in the United States. The film shows the lives of several people in Hollywood as only a director like Cronenberg can deliver, complete with a diverse cast that includes John Cusack, Julianne Moore, Robert Pattinson, Mia Wasikowska and more. There seems to be some great performances, but of course it's bizarre. Watch!

Maps To The Stars UK Trailer: David Cronenberg Points To Betrayal

11 August 2014 9:01 AM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

With David Cronenberg's Maps to the Stars preparing to launch in UK cinemas on September 26, a new (safe for work) trailer has been prepared. It's very similar to the red-band trailer that came out earlier this year, before the film debuted at Cannes. Julianne Moore, Mia Wasikowska, John Cusack, and Robert Pattinson star; Bruce Wagner wrote the screenplay. Our own Jason Gorber saw Maps to the Stars at Cannes and was not impressed: For the second film in a row, David Cronenberg has made a stinker. Yes, there were some bits in Cosmopolis that didn't suck, but it was hardly vintage DC. As I mentioned in my review for that other Robert Pattinson-in-a-limo movie, my biggest disappointment of late isn't that Cronenberg is trying new things...

Robert Pattinson reunites with Cronenberg in new Maps to the Stars trailer

11 August 2014 7:57 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

The UK trailer for Maps to the Stars has been released.

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).

The two women's stories intertwine with that of a Justin Bieber-esque tween star named Benjie (Evan Bird), his overbearing manager mother (Olivia Williams), and his father (John Cusack).

Robert Pattinson reunites with Cronenberg following his starring role in Cosmopolis, playing chauffeur and aspiring actor-screenwriter Jerome.

Maps to the Stars, which is written by Bruce Wagner, premiered at this year's Cannes Film Festival.

Maps to the Stars is released in the UK on September 26. »
