A new trailer as well as a gorgeous poster have arrived for David Cronenberg’s Maps to the Stars, starring Julianne Moore, Robert Pattinson, John Cusack and Mia Wasikowska. Moore is nominated for a Golden Globe for her performance in the film, so check out the trailer in the player below!
Written by Bruce Wagner, Cronenberg’s film is a contemporary tale exploring the demons of celebrity obsession in our society. John Cusack plays L.A. psychotherapist and life coach Stafford Weiss who has made his fortune with self-help books promising happiness. His wife Cristina (Olivia Williams) is the overbearing manager of their 13-year-old son, Benjie (Evan Bird), a TV star and recent drug rehab grad. Their estranged daughter, Agatha (Wasikowska), has just been released from a psychiatric hospital and befriends limo driver and aspiring actor Jerome (Pattinson). Among Stafford?s celebrity clients is Havana Segrand (Moore), a fading star who dreams of reprising her late mother Clarice?s (Sarah Gadon) starring role. Ambitions, ghosts, death, and all manner of vices bedevil the cast of characters.
Focus World will release Maps to the Stars in U.S. theaters, On Demand and iTunes on February 27.
