It seems like we’ve been waiting forever for David Cronenberg‘s Maps to the Stars and probably because not only has it already played the Cannes Film Festival, but because there have been so many trailers and previews and today offers yet another new UK trailer for the movie starring Robert Pattinson and Cannes Best Actress winner Julianne Moore.
Here’s the synopsis:
The Weiss family are an archetypical Hollywood dynasty – Dr Stafford Weiss (John Cusack) is a psychotherapist whose self-help books have made him a fortune. His wife Cristina (Olivia Williams) is the overbearing mom-ager of their thirteen-year old son, Benjie (Evan Bird), a prodigious child star fresh out of drug rehab and their estranged daughter Agatha (Mia Wasikowska) has recently been released from a psychiatric hospital. Agatha is now back in Hollywood making friends with a wannabe actor/writer limo driver named Jerome (Pattinson) and with a new job as PA to one of Stafford’s clients – the neurotic and tempestuous actress Havana Segrand (Moore), whose dream of reprising her dead mother’s starring role from the 1960s is beginning to haunt her.
I’m anticipating seeing it in Toronto (schedule permitting) and it will be hitting UK cinemas on September 26 with no domestic date yet set, now here’s that trailer.
