MAPS TO THE STARS UK Trailer: David Cronenberg Points To Betrayal
With David Cronenberg's Maps to the Stars preparing to launch in UK cinemas on September 26, a new (safe for work) trailer has been prepared. 

It's very similar to the red-band trailer that came out earlier this year, before the film debuted at Cannes. Julianne Moore, Mia Wasikowska, John Cusack, and Robert Pattinson star; Bruce Wagner wrote the screenplay. Our own Jason Gorber saw Maps to the Stars at Cannes and was not impressed: 

For the second film in a row, David Cronenberg has made a stinker. Yes, there were some bits in Cosmopolis that didn't suck, but it was hardly vintage DC. As I mentioned in my review for that other Robert Pattinson-in-a-limo movie, my biggest disappointment of late isn't that Cronenberg is trying new things (applause!), stepping outside for the last decade or so from his bread-and-butter genre flicks. But I am really not along for the ride with his latest foray into somber, clinical and dreary character pieces.

With all due respect to Mr. Gorber, I loved Cosmopolis. But I think it's great that Cronenberg is still making pictures that divide audiences, and I'm looking forward to seeing whether I love (or hate it) when it opens in theaters near me. (I hope, as soon as possible.) You can watch the trailer below.

I loved Cosmopolis, briljant film but it helped if you had read the book. I've watched Maps to the Stars too as it's out in my country. It's more accessible and entertaining than Cosmopolis but it's still a very weird film. There are several references to real situations and persons though, I'm wondering how the reception's gonna be in the US. Very good, funny but also pointing movie.
