Maps To the Stars

You can just feel the wheels in motion for the fall and the fall film festival season. While some of these films do not have U.S. release dates yet, many have openings just around the corner and many are already receiving international releases. And so we’ve collected a few new posters that have landed for a quartet of films that have already premiered elsewhere earlier this year, and will likely drop into theaters or festivals in the next six months.

Let’s start with the earliest film, Terry Gilliam’sThe Zero Theorem.” It debuted way back at the 2013 at the Venice Film Festival (our review here). It stars Christoph Waltz, Mélanie Thierry, Lucas Hedges Tilda Swinton, David Thewlis and Matt Damon, and it’s about an eccentric and reclusive computer genius plagued with existential angst in a dystopian future age, perhaps not unlike Gilliam’s “Brazil” but much more technologically advanced. The first poster Gilliam wanted to unveil was banned by the MPAA because it showed a glimpse of Christoph Waltz’s butt. But undeterred Gilliam has released a new poster and it looks pretty cool. The movie hits theaters September 19th and can be seen one month early OnDemand and on iTunes on August 19th.

The next poster is for Jake Paltrow’s “The Young Ones.” This one debuted earlier this year at the Sundance Film Festival in January (our review), and it’s got a great cast including Michael Shannon, Elle Fanning, Nicholas Hoult, and Kodi Smit-McPhee. The movie takes place in a post-crisis, not-too-distant future where severe droughts have ravaged the country and water is brutally scarce. And it’s a about a power struggle between a father (Shannon) and a local suitor (Hoult) who is dating his young daughter (Fanning). Not word yet on a U.S. release date, but it wouldn’t surprise us if it hit the Toronto International Film Festival next.

    The buzz today is about the new trailer for Maps to the Stars, a film that has already been announced for TIFF, naturally, since Cronenberg is one of their brightest stars.

    North America will embrace the delicious wickedness of MTTS and probably be bored senseless by the talky European CoSM. Just being realistic. And again, Julianne Moore is the one who won Best Actress at Cannes, no small feat. TIFF should be very exciting this year.

    America has a different style concept film than the European film. Cronenberg is quite dark for me. Happiness is to see for film buffs Clouds of Sils Maria. It's a movie caress, but not everyone loves French films, as I.
    Moore performance in mtts is good. She certainly would have deserved in America awards for his work, just not sure, from which film it will be. I totally waiting for her film Still Alice. Excellent scenario.

    Stewart, Binoche and Moretz are almost magnetic, absolutely great in Cloud of Sils Maria. It is a masterful implementation of work of the actresses in this film.

  • leo | July 15, 2014 2:44 AMReply

    IMDb for Clouds of Sils Maria is 1 win, nominees. Juliette Binoche it is equally good as Moore. It's about style, which is spoken in the film. CoSM would win in each direction. Vulgarity Cronenberg hidden for satire but might be successful on the American continent.

    Word of advice Playlist...I think its time to shut down your comment section especially when posting any and all news relating to Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart. Clearly they both have immature vile fans that cannot seem to conduct a civil conversation. Please don't let these idiots lead you to believe that ALL RP and KS fans are bad. There is a SMALL percentage out there (like 5%) that are decent.

    Secondly, the fall fests are my favorite and I cannot wait to see what movies make the list this year. I am very much looking forward to Maps and Sils Maria both movies have similar themes YET execute them in very different ways. From what I have seen Julianne Moore really shines and totally deserved her award. I really hope they take this performance to the Academy. Julianne is truly an amazing actress. (on a side note cannot wait to also see her in THG Mockingjay Pt 1)

    Its pretty clear that outside the Twilight films, both Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart have showed they are both very talented. I can see both having long lasting careers and the great thing is they are doing movie THEY want to do. Such a rare feature in young actors these days. Again there are very few in HW in this catagory. I have to admit, once I left that Twilight fandom my appreciation for both Rob and Kristen, individually skyrocketed. Two very intelligent, hard working and talented individuals. Don't let the idiotic fans help you make your decision about Rob and Kristen....let their work speak for itself. Thank you.

    It would be interesting to see MTT Clouds of Sils Maria at Toronto festival, but I think it will not be happen.
    In Europe gained Clouds of Sils Maria great reviews, Binoche won the critics' prize at the Cannes Film Festival. It Binoche film and Stewart's good too.
    Assayas has created a wonderful new style of film Bergman is.
    I do not think Cronenberg would be capable carry the comparison of these two films in Canada.

  • Reality Check | July 15, 2014 1:17 AM

    The MTTS reviews from Cannes were 4 and 5 star reviews. Did everyone love it? No, but it still got stellar reviews, and obviously, they don't give the Best Actress Palm D'Or to an actress in a bad film. And no, not all films got long standing ovations. Some got boos and some people walked out of a a few films. Don't generalize, it won't work.

    On May 27th: Howard Shore won the Cannes Soundtrack Award for Maps To The Stars. This is Shore’s 14th collaboration with David Cronenberg. Go look it up.

    Out of MTTS and CoSM, I much prefer to see the Cronenberg film. He's a master filmmaker and the plot seems a lot more interesting, creative and active than two actresses sitting around talking about their lives.

  • talia | July 15, 2014 12:41 AM

    @reality check- MTTS got mostly mixed reviews so wouldn't say the European critics loved it.the majority if not all films get a standing ovation in Cannes.If the critics loved anything about MTTS it was Julianne's performance.also don't think MTTS won best soundtrack.

    Out of MTTS and COSM,i'm more interested in seeing COSM as MTTS just doesn't look good from the trailers in my opinion although plan on seeing the rover when its released in the UK.

  • Reality Check | July 15, 2014 12:12 AM

    lol, how silly you sound, @Hawk. Binoche won nothing at Cannes, Julianne Moore won the Palm d'Or for Best Actress, period. Maps to the Stars also won Best Soundtrack honors. CoSM won nothing official.

    As for Canada and TIFF, Cronenberg is the biggest deal there is. They love him, they've honored him for years, he makes most of his films IN Canada. MTTS also got 5 star reviews in Cannes, the European critics loved it, and so did the audiences. It got a long standing ovation, and it should do well in North America with its juicy Hollywood insider plot and outstanding cast.

  • George | July 14, 2014 11:36 PM

    I doubt very much Cronenberg would be incapable of handling the comparison of these two films in Canada.

  • George | July 14, 2014 10:17 PMReply

    Looking forward to these films regardless off the embarrassing behavior polluting the comment section here. Grow up people. You all look bad. There are no degrees.

  • camille | July 14, 2014 9:40 PMReply

    It's interesting to see that both movies deal with a similar theme: an older actress trying to remain relevant into the harsh movie world but with a totally different approach. Looking forward to watch them.

  • Amy | July 14, 2014 5:20 PMReply

    I can't believe what a vile, unhappy, homophobic bunch this Twilight fandom really is, particularly Robert's fans. Then, Kristen's fans respond to them in the same vile manner. No wonder people made fun of you. Throwing gay around as a pejorative term, like you all are doing is truly the lowest I've seen any of her haters go.

    This is a site that put up a movie poster. This is supposed to be a discussion about a movie. If you want to discuss the sexuality of the stars in the movie and not the movie itself (which would actually be an interest discussion), please go to "I'mAHomophobicNosyIdiotWithNoLife(.)com" and post there.

    Robert Pattinson fans really need to be careful. When he announces that he's trying to flirt with Guy Pearce on a movie set, you might want to rethink your attack strategy. Your attempt to insult Kristen by calling her gay may backfire on you.

  • Anonymous | July 14, 2014 11:22 PM

    Really? You are interpreting Pattinson's comments regarding flirting w/Pearce, which are related to character development, a indicative of sexual orientation? How old are you? In addition, your attempts to appear neutral are painfully weak. Both sides need to stop with the trash talk. As the poster above said, there are no degrees. You are all equally ugly. Stop trying to 'defend' your hero because neither camp is winning. You are at an impasse, tied in the 'ugliest' competition. Blue ribbons to both factions. Give the rest of us a break and take a breather. Step back and see the rest of the world is laughing at you which, sad to say, ultimately reflects poorly on Stewart and Pattinson. Neither deserve fans like you all. They are working hard to forge successful careers and are doing that (in spite of all your efforts to tear down what they have built).

  • Mi | July 14, 2014 5:44 PM

    Don't pretent that you are not kstewy fan you're one of those bunch of idiots who trolling pattinson's Gossip Cop Board 24/7 to get reaction from his fans.I didn't know that calling someone gay is insulting.I don't have to be careful if someone calls Rob gay,because it's not insulting.LOL

  • Taylor | July 14, 2014 4:28 PMReply

    I caught some of these at Cannes. They were all great with good acting and direction. For me Miss Moore was outstanding and deserved her award. It is also worth a mention that Kristen Stewart is good in Clouds Of Sils Maria, I was pleasantly surprised. She seemed very natural not like in her previous films with the exception of Adventure-land. If she sticks to the same character role she might survive in the business, character actor she is not.

  • Guest | July 14, 2014 3:49 PMReply

    No one on here is being homophobic, If you read coherently you would understand that what is being said is that Media sites are using fans of Robert and Kristen as a couple for hits and that Kristen confirming her new relationship would stop it. It doesn't matter who she is dating, man or woman.. Why hard any Kristen fan would think they need to defend anyone who says she is lesbian or bisexual I have no clue, you seem to have the problem with it.. It is not an insult to question or label someone's sexuality..

  • NB | July 14, 2014 4:40 PM

    Ya'll are embarrassing, this is a cinema news site. Please quarantine your crazy, keep it on Twitter or Gossip Cop where it belongs.

  • @Guest | July 14, 2014 4:13 PM

    Bottom line, none of that belongs here. This is not some gossip site or internet playground for Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart fans.

  • Cheri | July 14, 2014 3:07 PMReply

    Clouds of Sils Maria got fantastic reviews, it will be a good film.

  • Give it up TROLL | July 14, 2014 3:03 PMReply

    Nasty, homophobic troll spewing all over this page. Who she may or may not be in a relationship with has absolutely NOTHING to do with her movies. It is no one's business or concern unless she decides to discuss it, least of all The Playlist, who is simply trying to report on MOVIES, and certainly not yours, TROLL. Get your obsessed head out of her a$$.

  • @ Voice of reason | July 14, 2014 3:33 PM

    That last post by "Again, Give it Up" was in response to "Voice of Reason."

  • Again, give it up | July 14, 2014 3:32 PM

    You have only one reason for coming to a movie site to discuss her potentially having a girlfriend. Everyone knows it. And that is, of course, your own homophobic agenda and attempting to "out" her, as though it will discredit her somehow professionally. so yes, Copy/Paste Troll, everyone knows who you are and what your reasons are for posting things about her and Alicia here are. The majority of her fans do not care about her personal relationships. Only people like yourself do. You're not fooling anyone. Fans are upset that lame trolls like yourself choose to come to a film site and discuss things that have absolutely zero bearing on Clouds of Sils Maria. And yes, you're doing it to shift focus from the amazing reviews she and the movie received. You're very transparent.

  • Voice of Reason | July 14, 2014 3:24 PM

    It's funny how any discussion of Alicia and Kristen parading for the paps automatically makes someone scream "homophobic." Did you ever stop to think that it's totally the opposite? People are happy the two of them are together and have no problem with it. This is 2014, not 1914, and they've been photographed together exclusively for over a year now. I would think you'd be used to it by now.

    Anna Pacquin and Evan Rachel Woods have both said they're bisexual and it doesn't seem to have hurt their careers at all. Some of Stewart's fans need to embrace change and stop trying to shame others or play tit for tat. Stewart is in charge of her own life, she's making the choices, it has nothing to do with anyone she's ever worked with. And since she's openly talked about her private life, especially about how she "can't control who she falls in love with," as recently as March in Marie Claire, of course it's going to be discussed in relation to her career. If you invite people into your private life, you can't be shocked when they comment.

  • Tanya @JAA | July 14, 2014 1:54 PMReply

    I'm with you, Kristen and Alicia should let their relationship shine. It would probably be good press for Kristen anyway because she has a lesbian following on Tumblr.. They would puke rainbows if she ever came out

  • @tanya | July 14, 2014 2:08 PM

    The only RS Kristen has been honest about was with MA, Thats probably because it wasn't so shady. She cheated on him with RP and now she has cheated on RP with Alicia, who also had a girlfriend.. So I wouldn't expect them to admit to dating, that would be bad press and not help her reputation

    Only after Rob's coming out.

  • mary | July 14, 2014 11:57 AMReply

    I have heard excellent reviews from these movies ( by people who understand this kind of movies, obviously not the playlist ) , hope to see them soon, I am more excited for maps and clouds of sils maria juliette and julianne are both excellent actresses and kristen received also great reviews for clouds. even though they deal with a similar theme Assayas and cronemberg are so different in they filmaking

  • Adam | July 14, 2014 12:29 PM

    Uh, The Playlist gave pretty decent reviews to all these movies, Mary.

  • Jaa | July 14, 2014 11:16 AMReply

    It's starting to get annoying how Kristen and Rob's names are being used to garner more attention/hits. I hope she reveals her girlfriend to the world soon.. Maybe it will stop then

  • camille | July 14, 2014 9:37 PM

    It's starting to get very annoying how so-called fans don't seem to understand the difference between commenting on stupid gossip articles and commenting on a reliale movie site. It is embarrassing to say the least.

  • @IS GAY | July 14, 2014 2:11 PM

    Hmm I don't know where you get that idea from, are you trying to use it as an insult because that's totally shitty and homophobic of you

  • RP IS A GAY | July 14, 2014 2:01 PM

    I hope Rob reveals one of his boyfriends to the world soon...

  • @KRISTEN HAS A GIRLFRIEND | July 14, 2014 1:43 PM

    Yeah, she does. Google "Kristen Stewart and Alicia Cargile". And I do believe that if she confirmed she was dating anyone other than Robert that media sites would stop using their names together so often, there are fans that believe they're still together and it's pretty obvious that they will stop being fans of either when they figure out that they aren't, there will be no one for the sites to click bait.

  • @NENA | July 14, 2014 1:37 PM

    Hmmm don't know where I gave the impression that I am trolling. Playlist and other sites clearly use Robert and Kristen for hits, even if Rob isn't pictured or mentioned fans know that he is I'm Maps To The Stars. Just an observation that I am entitled to share

  • nena | July 14, 2014 1:26 PM

    Stop trolling and dedicate your time to something more productive.

  • Kristen Has A Girlfriend? | July 14, 2014 11:35 AM

    How so? Julianne Moore is the photo here. Their names are not in this headline. Also, Kristen has a girlfriend? Even so, how would that change from writers being interested in these actors starting to bloom post Twilight?
