David Cronenberg’s Maps to the Stars has been on our radar for a while now, and with its September 26th UK/Ireland release date approaching, finally a new trailer has arrived!
Additionally, the film will have its North American premiere during the Toronto International Film Festival (September 4-14) as part of its Gala Presentations and will also screen during the Sitges Film Festival in October.
Look for a Stateside release date hopefully soon!
The film, which explores the demons of our celebrity-obsessed society, stars John Cusack, Olivia Williams, Evan Bird, Mia Wasikowska, Robert Pattinson, and Julianne Moore. Directed by Cronenberg and written by Bruce Wagner, it also stars Sarah Gadon and Carrie Fisher.
The Weiss family are an archetypical Hollywood dynasty: Dr. Stafford Weiss (Cusack) is a psychotherapist whose self-help books have made him a fortune. His wife, Cristina (Williams), is the overbearing mom-ager of their thirteen-year-old son, Benjie (Bird), a prodigious child star fresh out of drug rehab; and their estranged daughter, Agatha (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.
