David Cronenberg is back, and this time he's taking on his most terrifying, mind-altering subject yet: Hollywood families. Yep, the filmmaker who has spent a career shaking us up with various types of body horror, is continuing his exploration into the psyche, following up the Freudian "A Dangerous Method," and the chatty "Cosmopolis" with "Maps To The Stars."

Maps To The Stars

David Cronenberg is back, and this time he's taking on his most terrifying, mind-altering subject yet: Hollywood families. Yep, the filmmaker who has spent a career shaking us up with various types of body horror, is continuing his exploration into the psyche, following up the Freudian "A Dangerous Method" and the chatty "Cosmopolis" with "Maps To The Stars."

The first international trailer for the film has dropped today, providing a peek at what Cronenberg and new bromantic partner Robert Pattinson are cooking up next. Co-starring John Cusack, Julianne Moore, Mia Wasikowska, Olivia Williams and Sarah Gadon, the Bruce Wagner-penned movie is vicious look at a twisted Hollywood dynasty, telling the story of the Weiss family, of whom each member seems to have their own variety of fucked up problems. And that's just the start.

One of our 100 Most Anticipated Films Of 2014 and a film likely to appear at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival, the R-rated film (for violence, sex, nudity and drugs) will be distributed by eOne in the U.S.
