Entertainment One UK has released a new Maps to the Stars trailer online. David Cronenberg‘s latest film follows an archetypical Hollywood dynasty including a writer of self-help manuals, his wife who manages the career of their 13-year-old son, and their daughter, who was recently released from a sanatorium where she was treated for criminal pyromania. The plot also includes Havana, an actress who wants to remake a movie that starred her now-deceased mother. I’m still not 100% sure what to expect from Cronenberg’s new picture, but that’s one of the reasons it’s one of my must-see films at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival.
Hit the jump to check out the new Maps to the Stars trailer. The film stars John Cusack, Julianne Moore, Mia Wasikowska, Robert Pattinson, Olivia Williams, and Sarah Gadon. Maps to the Stars opens in the U.K. and Ireland on September 26th. There is currently no U.S. release date.

Here’s the official synopsis for Maps to the Stars:
The Weiss family are an archetypical Hollywood dynasty – Dr Stafford Weiss (John Cusack) is a psychotherapist whose self-help books have made him a fortune. His wife Cristina (Olivia Williams) is the overbearing mom-ager of their thirteen-year old son, Benjie (Evan Bird), a prodigious child star fresh out of drug rehab and their estranged daughter Agatha (Mia Wasikowska) has recently been released from a psychiatric hospital. Agatha is now back in Hollywood making friends with a wannabe actor/writer limo driver named Jerome (Robert Pattinson) and with a new job as PA to one of Stafford’s clients – the neurotic and tempestuous actress Havana Segrand (Julianne Moore), whose dream of reprising her dead mother’s starring role from the 1960s is beginning to haunt her.
Exploring the demons of our celebrity-obsessed society, David Cronenberg’s MAPS TO THE STARS is written by Bruce Wagner and also stars Sarah Gadon and Carrie Fisher. MAPS TO THE STARS will be released in cinemas across the UK & Ireland on September 26.
