David Cronenberg's Maps to the Stars releases full U.S. trailer and poster

We've covered MAPS TO THE STARS around these parts only intermittently because, frankly, we weren't quite sure just how well it fit into our wheelhouse. But, seeing how it comes from David Cronenberg and features plenty of sordid, twisted material, we're going for it full bore now. Welcome to Hollywood, Cronenberg-style!

The film has just released a bran new U.S. trailer and poster, both of which can be seen below. Starring Julianne Moore, John Cusack, Mia Wasikowska and Robert Pattinson, it deals with ghosts, tragedies, raging egos and murder. Right up our alley after all!

The official synopsis:

Meet the Weiss family, who are making their way in Hollywood rife with money, fame, envy, and relentless hauntings. Stafford Weiss (John Cusack) is a famed TV self-help therapist with an A-list celebrity clientele. Meanwhile, Cristina Weiss (Olivia Williams) has her work cut out managing the career of their disaffected child-star son, Benjie (Evan Bird), a fresh graduate of rehab at age 13.

Yet unbeknownst to them, another member of the Weiss family has arrived in town - mysteriously scarred and tormented Agatha (Mia Wasikowska), just released from a psych ward and ready to start again. She soon works her way into a friendship with a limo driver (Robert Pattinson) and becomes personal assistant to unraveling actress Havana Segrand (Julianne Moore), who is beset by the ghost of her legendary mother, Clarice (Sarah Gadon). But Agatha is on a quest for redemption - and even in this realm of the artificial, and the unearthly, she's determined to find it, no matter what it takes.

MAPS TO THE STARS opens on February 27th in theaters, On Demand and iTunes.
