Focus Features has released a new trailer for Maps to the Stars, David Cronenberg‘s new drama about a dysfunctional Hollywood family. Mia Wasikowska plays a mysterious woman who hails from a famous Hollywood family. She returns to town and secures a job as a personal assistant to aging actress Havana Segrand (Julianne Moore), but seems to have some ulterior motives.
Meanwhile, her relations (played by John Cusack, Olivia Williams, and Evan Bird) are dealing with troubles of their own. Rounding out the cast are Robert Pattinson as a limo driver, and Sarah Gadon as Havana’s late actress mother. Watch the Maps to the Stars trailer after the jump. Read More »
Back in 2011 actor Robert De Niro and director Olivier Assayas sat side by side on the Cannes jury. Now they’re making a movie together. Assayas has just hired De Niro to join Robert Pattinson in the film Idol’s Eye. The movie is scheduled to shoot in October in Chicago and Toronto. Read More »
The Rover is set at a point just after society has crumbled, and those who remain are all keeping a tight hold on whatever shreds of their former lives still remain. One man abandons his brother (Robert Pattinson) while stealing a car from a dangerous man played by Guy Pearce. David Michod wrote and directed this follow-up to Animal Kingdom, and follows Pearce as he, with Pattinson in tow, attempts to regain his property. Watch the first full-length The Rover trailer below. Read More »
It’s a good day when you get to see footage from one of your most anticipated films of the year, and this Maps to the Stars trailer is our first look at real footage from David Cronenberg‘s new movie. The film stars Mia Wasikoska as a young woman who bears a visible external scar, and probably some pretty serious internal damage as well. She turns up in Hollywood and scores a job as personal assistant to an actress played by Julianne Moore, but we soon learn that the girl has more on her mind than just doing her job well. Check out the trailer below for hints of much stranger stuff to follow.
Update: A second trailer has been released. It is even less safe for work than the first, but it is also actually a proper trailer rather than a sales reel. Both are embedded below.
Update 2: The sales trailer has been pulled.

Dane DeHaan has played some pretty meaty roles over the course of his career, but he has particularly big shoes to fill in Life. The Anton Corbijn-directed drama stars DeHaan as silver screen legend James Dean, opposite Robert Pattinson as photographer Dennis Stock.
Until the movie actually opens, we won’t know whether DeHaan does a capable job of capturing Dean’s vital essence. But now that the first still has hit the web, we can at least gauge whether he looks the part. See the photo and judge for yourself after the jump.

These days post-apocalyptic films are nearly a dime a dozen. But none of those have the pedigree of The Rover, written and directed by David Michôd, the man behind 2010 crime drama Animal Kingdom. His feature follow-up hits theaters this Summer, and stars Guy Pearce and Robert Pattinson. Set ten years after the world has all but ended, Pearce plays a man forced to hunt down one of his prized possessions after it’s forcefully taken from him.
Sounds ominous, yes? Well the first teaser trailer just hit and there aren’t many more answers here. Just some impressive visuals and Pearce and Pattinson as you’ve never seen them before. Check it out below. Read More »
It’s fun to see the development of the careers of Robert Pattinson and Daniel Radcliffe to have similar careers after their respective tween franchises ended. Radcliffe has been canny with his post-Potter gigs, choosing projects that better straddle art and mainstream.
Pattinson has gone more for the weird when it comes to gigs outside Twilight. (Both the intentionally weird, and the unwittingly so.) And he’s got another gig with Cronenberg in the works now, a job with Werner Herzog, and a role in The Rover, from Animal Kingdom director David Michôd. That’s good company to be in.
Now add The Lost City of Z, to be directed by James Gray based on the book by David Grann about doomed Amazon explorer Colonel Percy Harrison Fawcett. Read More »

In The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Dane DeHaan plays Harry Osborn, a role previously played by James Franco in Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man trilogy. In Anton Corbijn‘s Life, he’ll follow even further in Franco’s footsteps by picking up another of his old characters: James Dean.
DeHaan and Twilight star Robert Pattinson have joined the fact-based drama, which chronicles the friendship between the Rebel Without a Cause actor and photographer Dennis Stock. The two became close when they took a road trip together in 1955 for a Life magazine article. Hit the jump for more details.

David Cronenberg‘s next film is Maps to the Stars, based on a script which has been said to eviscerate the celebrity culture of Los Angeles. The director has described it as an extreme piece of work that centers on “two child actors ruined by Hollywood’s depravity.”
Cronenberg announced at Cannes last year that he planned to work again with Cosmopolis actors Robert Pattinson and Sarah Gadon. At the time Viggo Mortensen was mentioned as another possible cast member, but now he has recruited two different actors: Julianne Moore and John Cusack. (It’s surprising that Moore and Cronenberg have never worked together before now; they seem like a fairly natural fit.) Read More »
