Film Trailers: MAPS TO THE STARS
Julianne Moore working with David Cronenberg. Sold! Well, I am sold with anything either one of these exceptional artists are involved in, but together, it is going to be fantastic. Cronenberg is was one of the more intelligent, gutsy directors in cinema and this film appears to be some kind of satire on Hollywood and dysfunctional relationships. He has been in a bit of a slump with his last tow films, A Dangerous Method and Cosmopolis. Definitely not bad films, but nothing significant. Once again, is this the film where Robert Pattinson really breaks through. He was good in Cronenberg's Cosmopolis, but nothing special. I love seeing Cronenberg working with Moore and I really hope John Cusack delivers the goods that he is capable of. The man has been in a rut for quite some time and could use a quality picture. The cast also includes Mia Wasikowska, Carrie Fisher, Sarah Gadon and Olivia Williams. The film will have its world premiere at the Cannes Film Festival and I am sure, hopeful, a US date will occur by the end of the year. Really anticipating the reviews out of Cannes. Cannot go wrong with Cronenberg.
