‘Maps to the Stars’ Trailer: Robert Pattinson and Julianne Moore Have Limo Sex

April 14, 2014

A trailer for David Cronenberg’s ‘Maps to the Stars’ has hit the Web and is causing a stir. Yes, Robert Pattinson and Julianne Moore have sex in a limo, but there is so much more is going on, and it’s the under-the-skin creepiness that draws us in along with the sensationalism.

Amidst so many formulaic movies — superhero franchises, animated features, romantic comedies etc. — we have the latest from the visionary director David Cronenberg, who more than lives up to the appellation, having given us the likes of ‘The Dead Zone,’ ‘The Fly’ and ‘M Butterfly’ over the years.

From the looks of the trailer — which is an international sales trailer rather than a theatrical trailer — we have a sprawling drama which is also a biting satire on the superficiality and emptiness of Hollywood and celebrity culture. By the end of it, we may be wanting a map away from the stars!

Julianne Moore is seen as Havana Segrand, an “actressy” actress who has just hired a new personal assistant, Agatha Weiss, portrayed by Mia Wasikowska. who is both haunted — as a fire survivor who has been in a mental institution — and haunting as well. By the end of the trailer one can easily believe she is some sort of ghost or possessed by same.

That same actressy actress indulges in some steamy sex with her limo driver, Jerome Fontana who is an aspiring sctor, portrayed by Robert Pattinson. It marks his second appearance in a Cronenberg film, after ‘Cosmopolis.’ And the actor, himself moving past ‘The Twilight Saga’ fame and all that went along with it, is carvign out a new career in such roles taht take him far away from the young adult fandom that made him a global star. No, not much here for a teen scream. Sex or no sex, it’s a creepy milieu.

‘Maps to the Stars’ also stars John Cusack, Olivia Williams, Sarah Gadon, and Evan Bird. It will have its world premiere at the Cannes Film Festival. A theatrical release date has not been set, but that does not stop it from being one of the most anticipated movies of the year. For now, we have but a glimpse in the trailer below!
