Last week we learned that David Cronenberg’s highly-anticipated Map to the Stars would be having a premiere at Cannes come May. And as a director known for his visually-striking and mind-melding thrillers whose sexual power is always bathed in grotesque horror, his latest feature looks to tickle all of our Cronenberg fantasies. As we’ve noted previously:
Featuring Pattinson once again—looking like he just stepped out off the set of Cosmopolis—alongside Mia Wasikowska, Julianne Moore, John Cusack, Sarah Gadon, and Olivia Williams for a psychologically unnerving family drama. Cusak stars as, “…as Stanford Weiss, a millionaire who made his money with self-help manuals. His wife, played by Olivia Williams, serves as manager to their child star son Benjie (Evan Bird), who recently finished rehab.
Meanwhile, Benjie’s sister, played by Mia Wasikowska, was recently treated for criminal pyromania.Julianne Moore’s character is an actress and client of Stanford’s who wants to remake a ’60s film that made her now-deceased mother Clarice famous. She is shown in the trailer getting hot and heavy with her limo driver, a.k.a. Robert Pattinson.”
And now, you can see new stills from the film featuring Pattinson, Moore, and Wasikowska.
