Three clips have been released for David Cronenberg's next movie Maps to the Stars. The movie has a great cast of actors that includes Robert Pattinson, Julianne Moore, John Cusack, Olivia Williams, and Mia Wasikowska. I love the films Cronenberg has made over the years. He has quite a wide variety of styles, and this seems different from anything that he's done before. It looks like a solid flick, though. Here's a synopsis:
The Weiss family is the archetypical Hollywood dynasty: father Sanford is an analyst and coach, who has made a fortune with his self-help manuals; mother Christina mostly looks after the career of their son Benjie, 13, a child star.
One of Sanford’s clients, Havana, is an actress who dreams of shooting a remake of the movie that made her mother, Clarice, a star in the ’60s. Clarice is dead now and visions of her come to haunt Havana at night. Adding to the toxic mix, Benjie has just come off a rehab program he joined when he was 9 and his sister, Agatha, has recently been released from a sanatorium where she was treated for criminal pyromania…
Maps to the Stars premieres at Cannes Film Festival this month, and has no U.S. release date yet.
