Map To The Stars

Yesterday, we got our first taste of David Cronenberg's "Maps To The Stars," with what was essentially a post-production reel. And is generally the case, that kind of footage isn't always the best representation of the tone and style of the finished product. Well, this morning brings with it another look at Cronenberg's film with another trailer, one boasting lots of new footage and a distinctly different vibe.

Certainly a lot more NSFW, and with a heightened air of sexuality and surreality, this new look is much better (in this writer's opinion) than its tonally wonky predecessor. The story of the twisted Weiss family is given more space to truly explore how messed up they all are to one degree or another, with ambition, status, sex, secrets and more all plaguing them to various degrees. However, the question will be whether or not Cronenberg has anything new to say about the wealthy, famous and privileged that hasn't been said before.

No release date yet, but the film does have a May 21 release date in France, so expect this one at Cannes. eOne is distributing in North America later this year, Watch below.
