David Cronenberg & His Dreamy Ensemble Make Indiewire’s List Of ’50 Indie Films They Want To See In 2014′

“Maps to the Stars”
Director: David Cronenberg
Cast: Julianne Moore, Robert Pattinson, Mia Wasikowska, John Cusack, Olivia Williams, Carrie Fisher
Distributor: None as of yet in the US
Release Date: TBD

Why It Might Be a Must-See: A near certainty for Cannes 2014, 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. Said to be a “vicious look at a twisted Hollywood dynasty” and a takedown of the industry altogether, “Maps” sure sounds juicy. It’s already been rated by the MPAA (and given an “R,” which is clearly no surprise given Cronenberg’s history), so it must be just a matter of waiting for the Croisette (unless it’s a surprise addition to Berlin, which is not an impossibility).

There’s no MIGHT about it, Maps To The Stars IS going to be a must see!

‘Maps To The Stars’ Featured On More Anticipated Movie Lists


Maps To The Stars has been featured on 2 more anticipated movies of 2014 lists. It made it in at #17 of Ropes of Silicone‘s list and #4 of The Film Stage’s list with The Film Stage saying “It’s hard to imagine many films will incite more of a visceral thrill this year“.

DC

From The Film Stage:

David Cronenberg is working in a different register these days — more removed (quite literally, in terms of something as essential as camera distance), more clinical, more alien — so those hoping for Scanners and not Cosmopolis might need to rearrange most expectations. The wicked sense of humor, however, is as cutting as ever, and in coming off a perfectly tuned, pitch-black social satire, his take on the corrosive nature of Hollywood — which required his first shooting endeavor in the United States — should be a sight; consider the lineup — Julianne Moore, John Cusack, Mia Wasikowska, Olivia Williams, as well as a returning Robert Pattinson & Sarah Gadon — and it’s hard to imagine many films will incite more of a visceral thrill this year.

From Ropes of Silicone:

Written by noted Los Angeles author Bruce Wagner (“Wild Palms”), David Cronenberg’s latest apparently sets out to take a stab the celebrity-obsessed society of Los Angeles and instead of attempting to boil the plot down in my own words, I’ll allow the following plot synopsis to set the story straight.

My interest here should be obvious, it’s a Cronenberg film, need I say more?

A contemporary tale exploring the demons of our celebrity-obsessed society, story follows the Weiss family, which is led by Stafford (John Cusack), a psychotherapist and life coach who made his fortune with self-help books. His wife (Olivia Williams) is the overbearing mother-manager of their 13-year-old son (Evan Bird), a TV star recently out of drug rehab. Their estranged daughter (Mia Wasikowska) has just been released from a psychiatric hospital and befriended a limo driver (Robert Pattinson) who is also an aspiring actor.

One of Stafford’s celebrity clients is Havana (Julianne Moore), an actress with an unusual new assistant. Havana’s dream of reprising her dead mother’s (Sarah Gadon) starring role from the 1960s slowly crumbles while ghosts, death and all manner of vices collide.

Also it’s time for MTV’s Movie Brawl. In 2012 David Cronenberg’s Cosmopolis took the top spot and this year it looks like Maps To The Stars is going to put up a good fight so don’t forget to give it your vote!

Maps To The Stars is 7 out of 10 on Most Anticipated Movie of 2014 list!


Screen Crush has compiled a list of their Top 10 Most Anticipated Movies of 2014 and Maps To The Stars made the cut!

Coming in at Number 7, here’s the MTTS excerpt:MTTS

David Cronenberg found a perfect vessel for ‘Cosmopolis” eerie, somewhat plasticine cruise through the apocalypse in Robert Pattinson. The pair have joined forces once again for a satire of celebrity culture and the Hollywood dream factory. Also starring Julianne Moore, John Cusack, Mia Wasikowska and Carrie Fisher (as herself!), ‘Maps to the Stars’ is bound to be bizarre – and if anyone can find something new to say about our obsession with fame and curious world of image-making, Cronenberg is the man who can do it.

Things To Get Excited About In 2014? ‘Maps To The Stars’ Of Course


Canada’s Globe & Mail asked their team of critics and reporters to weigh in on the hottest happenings of the coming year. Three guesses what made their top 10 list of things they were excited about in 2014!

You only needed one guess right?

Here’s what they had to say about Maps To The Stars

Maps is Cronenberg’s first film set in Los Angeles, and he couldn’t have a better guide in screenwriter-novelist Bruce Wagner, the most acerbic chronicler of Hollywood since Nathanael West: He’s the screenwriter behind Scenes from the Class Struggle in Beverly Hills and the miniseries Wild Palms, and novelist of Force Majeure and the trilogy of “cellphone” novels, I’m Losing You, I’ll Let You Go and Still Holding. The cast includes John Cusack as a famous pop psychiatrist, Julianne Moore as his celebrity client, and Olivia Williams as his wife and the manager of their drug-addicted child star (Evan Bird). Mia Wasikowska is their mentally disturbed daughter; Robert Pattinson is the limo driver she befriends.

‘Maps To The Stars’ On Blackbook’s 30 Most Anticipated Films of 2014 List


Blackbook have compiled their ’30 Most Anticipated Films of 2014′ list and we’re delighted to see that Maps To The Stars has made it on there!

Maps-to-the-stars

Here’s what they had to say about it:

MAP TO THE STARS

Director: David Cronenberg, making his 18th film.
Concept: The entertainment industry’s relationship to Western civilization, as seen through the plight of two former child stars.
Cast: Mia Wasikowska, Julianne Moore, Robert Pattinson, John Cusack.
The Skinny: Cronenberg is always worthwhile, and turning his cerebral, surreal eye on Hollywood could wield fascinating results. Wasikowska is becoming a great actress, and it’s nice to see Robert Pattinson leap into auteur-driven art house projects, post-Twilight fame. - DH
