David Cronenberg's Maps To The Stars: first promo
Erstwhile king of venereal horror David Cronenberg has a new film out this year. Here's the first promo for Maps To The Stars...
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.
The first promo (which you can find below these words) does give the impression that Maps To The Stars is akin to a 90s thriller like Poison Ivy, but we're fairly certain there's far, far more to it than it's letting on. Maps To The Stars is thought to be screening at Cannes, with a worldwide release later in the year. When we get a firm release date, we'll be sure to pass it along.
