Trailer Watch: Hollywood Drives Julianne Moore and Mia Wasikowska Insane in New 'Maps to the Stars' Promo

Julianne Moore has earned her frontrunner status in the Best Actress race with her performance as an early-onset Alzheimer’s patient in Still Alice, but she was honored by the Cannes Film Festival with a Best Actress trophy for her work in another film, Maps to the Stars

A new trailer for the showbiz satire shows Moore playing fading actress Havana Segrand, the daughter of an iconic Hollywood ingenue (Sarah Gadon), who died young and left a pretty corpse. Havana is haunted by visions of her vicious mother, who died in a fire, while fighting tooth and nail for the starring role in the remake of the movie that made her mother a star. 

Mia Wasikowska co-stars as Havana’s new assistant, a pyromaniac burn victim who’s not as innocent as she appears. Her horndog love interest, played by Robert Pattinson, might have a heart of gold — but also a wandering eye for Havana. 

More Moore is always a good thing, and so we can’t wait for Maps to the Stars‘ release on February 27.
