USA: Maps To The Stars is now on VOD and in limited theatrical release! Movie night tonight!

If you’re in the US and haven’t seen Maps To The Stars, guess what? You can NOW! Unfortunately the film is only playing in about 50 theaters but it’s on VOD and if you check your On Demand films right now, you can be watching Oscar winner, Julianne Moore, who also took the prize at Cannes for Maps To The Stars, in her most daring role to date.

Grab some friends, pop some popcorn and watch David Cronenberg’s satirical, wild look at Hollywood. Or maybe it’s not so wild and pretty close to reality? 😉

VIDEO: Maps To The Stars is “a huge, almost sinful truckload of fun” + US trailer released!

Maps To The Stars is on The Playlist’s 25 Best Films of 2015 We’ve Already Seen with a fun verdict posted about the film:

Verdict: Soapy to the point of lunacy, overwrought to a near-camp extreme, and atypically messy from the usually hospital-corners Cronenberg, “Maps to the Stars” is also a huge, almost sinful truckload of fun. Assembling a wonderful cast who take delight in ripping to shreds the folly and hubris of the vacant Hollywood lifestyle, the film is a riot of inside-baseball winks about the film industry, and the deeply narcissist, rotten-to-the-core sellouts who populate it. Julianne Moore’s titanic performance as the fading star facing encroaching middle age (and therefore irrelevance) is so good that it won her Cannes’ Best Actress award, and in one go ensures that she herself will never suffer her character’s fate. But all of the cast do sterling work: it’s a, “Hey, where you been?” to John Cusack, and a, “Hello, we’ll be seeing a lot more of you,” to Evan Bird, especially. It’s may simply be a gonzo gothic telenovela (so much soap can only ever generate so much froth), but it’s a giddy good time at the pictures.

While there was some concern that Cannes’ Best-Actress winning “Maps To The Stars” deserved to be released last fall, there is something particularly fitting about the movie hitting theaters the weekend after the Oscars. Just after Hollywood spends an entire night congratulating themselves, David Cronenberg will be delivering his gleefully caustic take on the industry and everyone in it…

Maps To The Stars releases in the US on Feb. 27th.

From Allocine

Le Pacte has announced that “Maps to the Stars”, the next feature
film by David Cronenberg starring Robert Pattinson, John Cusack and
Julianne Moore will hit our screens in May 2014.

As we announced in January a first editing of Maps To The Stars was
ready and that the film had passed by the Committee of Film
Classification in the United States, Le Pacte – the french distributor –
just gave a release date for the next film by David Cronenberg, in May
2014.

No specific date has been given, but like his Cosmopolis in 2012, there
is a good chance that the release will be made simultaneously in
theaters and for its presentation at Cannes.

Led by Robert Pattinson, Julianne Moore and John Cusack, Maps To The
Stars central theme is Hollywood, and more exactly the obsession with
celebrity.

David Cronenberg has been selected 4 times in Cannes in Official
Competition: Crash in 1996 and Spider in 2002, A History of Violence in
2005 and Cosmopolis in 2012.

Note that The Rover by David Michôd with Robert Pattinson has no
realease date yet too and could be in competition for the Palme d’Or.

Double dose of Pattinson for the 67th Cannes Film Festival?

This was then confirmed by Le Pacte (the French distributors ) on twitter

  “@le_pacte: we confirm #MapsToTheStars release date for May!

Obviously everyone is thinking the same thing about a May release date!
