The Factory
Trying to outdo Nicolas Cage in the number of mediocre movies he can appear in, John Cusack is in yet another movie we didn't know existed (or possibly forgot about). It's called "The Factory," and apparently it's been on DVD since February. Huh. In any case, the U.K. trailer is here, and the folks who cut it really want to make sure a voiceover holds your hand, explaining everything every step of the way.

Maps To The Stars
Robert Pattinson has the "Twilight" franchise to thank for his career, but the actor is bracingly honest as to whether his fanbase from those films will support him going forward. “They won’t go [see his post-Twilight films]. I’ve said that from the beginning," he recently told Esquire UK.

Reclaim
While Nicolas Cage tends to get the brunt of criticism/derision for jobs likely accepted based on how many zeros appear on his paycheck, let's pour one out for John Cusack. He has been sliding into a comfortable groove of forgettable movies ("Drive Hard," "The Prince"), and so it goes with "Reclaim," which you probably didn't know existed. Well, it does.

Bruce Willis The Prince
The cinematic bromance between Bruce Willis and Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson continues, with the pair buddying up for cheapie action flicks made in places where there are generous tax credits (it would seem that Fiddy is a savvy producer). And after two movies you already forgot about — "Setup" and "Fire With Fire" — the pair are back with "The Prince." And it's basically a remake of "Taken."

Paddington
It always seemed a bit like an odd fit when Colin Firth signed up to voice the beloved bear "Paddington," and it seems he finally realized too, dropping out of the project, which already has a November 28th release date and has released a couple of trailers. But at least as far as PR goes, everyone is totes cool with it.

Maps To The Stars
When you’re a director like David Cronenberg at the Cannes Film Festival, and you're movie stars actors such as John Cusack, Julianne Moore, Robert Pattinson, and Mia Wasikowska, it’s only natural to have a lot of attention get thrown your way. At the press conference for Cronenberg’s latest film “Maps to the Stars,” a movie that’s about the fear, desperation, and greed that runs rampant in Hollywood, the cast receives the same type of attention that the movie’s central characters are so desperate to obtain.

Maps To The Stars
Real talk: it's been quite a while since David Cronenberg made something truly satisfying. "Cosmopolis" has a few defenders, "A Dangerous Method" not so much, and while there's stuff to like in "Spider," "A History Of Violence" and "Eastern Promises," all felt compromised to some degree or other. Indeed, the truly unfiltered Cronenberg picture, one where bits fall off people or people try to have sex with orifices not traditionally used for any sexual act, seems like something of a distant memory at this point.

Maps To The Stars
Yes, Cannes is next week and there are a lot of films playing, but it seems there are only two movies playing: "The Rover" and "Maps To The Stars." It seems every day comes another peek at one of those films, and today is no different, with David Cronenberg's film getting yet another trailer.

Maps To The Stars
Robert Pattinson must be feeling pretty damn good one week before the Cannes Film Festival. He's rolling into the south of France with two highly anticipated films to promote—David Michôd's "The Rover" and David Cronenberg's "Maps To The Stars." You can bet there will be lots from both movies over the next seven days, but it's the latter that's showing off its stuff first.
