Watch: David Cronenberg Is Back With the Trailer for 'Maps to the Stars'

A near certainty for Cannes 2014, "Maps to the Stars," David Cronenberg's follow up to his divisive "Cosmopolis" once again teams the director with Robert Pattinson, this time alongside a dreamy ensemble including Julianne Moore, Mia Wasikowska, John Cusack, Olivia Williams and Carrie Fisher (as herself!).

Said to be a "vicious look at a twisted Hollywood dynasty" and a takedown of the industry altogether, "Maps" sure looks juicy. It's already been rated by the MPAA with an "R," which is clearly no surprise given Cronenberg's history.

Watch the first trailer below:

UPDATE: Here's a new NSFW trailer

    Love Julianne's character, she's so deliciously self-absorbed. Can't wait to see what Cronenberg's done with this dysfunctional Hollywood group of misfits. Stellar cast, crisp dialog, moody characters, volatile situations, scenic LA backgrounds, I'm sooooo looking forward to this!

    This trailer looks like it's got a lot more dark humor in it. Can't wait to see it. Cronenberg in dark, psycho mode here.

  • davyjc | April 15, 2014 2:43 PMReply

    This looks provocative and pure Cronenberg. Can't wait to see it.

    Cronenberg unnerving us again - wonderful. Excellent ensemble cast. Love love John Cusack and Juliqnne Moore and Rob Patz looks like he's here for the long haul. Really nice guy apparently loved him in Cosmopolis. This scene with Julianne looks WOW

    Do Kristen Stewarts bitter fans think posting their vitriol on EVERY site that posts this trailer, will make any difference to the success of the movie? Grow up.

  • sandie | April 15, 2014 1:18 PM

    Surely people don't still like that girl
    Julianne Moore is fantastic so is Mia (much much better than that Twighlight virl
    This will be worth a watch and Robert Pattinson is really goox looking.

    What is this mess? It made me feel so uncomfortable and it looks like it's all over the place too, geez...

  • sheena | April 15, 2014 1:11 PM

    Maybe you're a little too young for this or just not accostomed to Davix Cronenberv's unique talent. Go watch Divergent maybe

  • yomama | April 15, 2014 1:53 AMReply

    This doesn't look good at all, who funds this?

  • Prince of Cannes | April 16, 2014 6:44 PM

    Yomoma, you might be interested to know this film has had distribution for a full year. It didn't have to go begging to Sundance. A List stars can get films greenlit and get immediate distribution deals. I guess the people you're a fan of don't have that kind of power so you don't know. You might want to upgrade, just saying.

  • dave | April 15, 2014 1:15 PM

    Hey it's Cronenberg - it'll be good but if you like straightforward and simple movies then maybe it's not for you. Try it, become a clever movie watcher LOL

  • jingmei | April 14, 2014 10:38 PMReply

    David Cronenberg is over underrated.

  • Jon | April 15, 2014 12:10 AM

    Oh well, get over it.

  • No | April 14, 2014 8:48 PMReply

    I wish he or someone else would do one on the Washington media elite during "nerd prom."

  • disapointed | April 14, 2014 7:43 PMReply

    ...damn it

  • Pam | April 14, 2014 7:25 PMReply

    This looks really good, and strange. Of course, all of Cronenberg's movies are strange but also
    strangely fascinating. Can't wait to see it, if it comes to my city-hope I don't have to wait for the dvd to come out.

  • Jake | April 14, 2014 6:50 PMReply this real? this isn't a Funny Or Die sketch?

  • Steven | April 14, 2014 6:03 PMReply

    Please, let this be good. "Cosmopolis" sucked ass.

  • Valentine | April 16, 2014 6:40 PM

    Yeah, "Steven," Cosmopolis sucked so much ass that it's FRESH on RottenTomatoes. The critics loved it. Netflix loved it. They put it on their "Best Indies of 2012 list."

    Too bad you can't say the same for On The Road. Also premiered at Cannes and totally bombed. It's ROTTEN on RT, just as a comparison, you know.

  • RPG | April 14, 2014 5:40 PMReply

    Bad choice of hipster-indie pop music. But there's gobs of Mia in this trailer and that's all that matters.

  • nikki | April 14, 2014 5:30 PMReply

    Can't wait to see the movie !!

  • Ken | April 14, 2014 5:11 PMReply

    I will pass

  • No | April 14, 2014 5:06 PMReply

    What a mess.
