First Trailer For Maps To The Stars
David Cronenberg goes to Hollywood

15 April 2014  |  Written by James White  |  Source: YouTube

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. And then there’s Havana (Julianne Moore), one of Dr. Weiss’ patients and an actress trying to get a film made about her late mother.

There’s no set date for the film’s release here just yet, but that may change if it wins a slot in this year’s Cannes Film Festival.
