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.

As you know, Robert Pattinson, John Cusack, Julianne Moore, Mia Wasikowska, Olivia Williams and Sarah Gadon all star in this one, telling the tale of a Hollywood dynasty through a particularly caustic lens. And the tone is still one we're trying to get a handle on. The new trailer is both broad and arch, but the performances seem to be pitched in a curious key, one that at times seems a bit off kilter. But getting satire confined in a trailer can be tricky, so here's hoping the combined power of this one hits all the right notes.

Cannes kicks off next Wednesday, and this will open in the U.S. later this year. Watch below. [Robert Pattinson Life]

    Another ambitious project from David Cronenberg.

    Ooooh, this trailer brings in the spooky, creepy elements, and still shows the hypocrisy and humor. Lucky people in France get to see it first!

    You mean Jacob Jankowski, the character Pattinson played in the profitable and critically successful Water For Elephants, right? Good reference, everyone loved Jacob in that movie, especially the elephant.

    Pattinson said the elephant was the best actress he had worked with, and the reason he did the film. For myself, I can't wait to see MTTS, it looks funny, twisted and outrageous. Oddsmakers are saying it has a good chance to walk off with the grand prize at Cannes. I will be happy for Cronenberg if that happens, he's such an iconoclast and master director.

    i find this project underwhelming. another tale of Hollywood excess and woe. then again, i typically find actors and industry parasites the least interesting people out there. i hope it's a strong character drama, though. i'm much more interested in his novel, Consumed, which will be published in September.
