After the film made the rounds at TIFF this year, with our own Mike Ryan calling it an "interesting bad movie," a new 'Maps to the Stars' trailer has debuted. It's pretty apparent from the footage that director David Cronenberg doesn't care too much for the glamorization of Hollywood. Still, without a clear Best Picture Oscar frontrunner just yet, this film remains one to watch.

TIFF 2014: 'Maps to the Stars' May Be a Bad Movie, But It's at Least Interesting

‘Maps to the Stars’ is not a very good movie – but there’s a difference between a bad movie and an interesting bad movie. ‘Maps to the Stars’ is the latter. It is certainly interesting. And it’s apparent that Toronto’s favorite son, Cronenberg, does not care too much for Hollywood -- but that’s such a tired sentiment, and beating it over our heads that everyone is terrible doesn’t really bring anything new to anything. ‘Maps to the Stars’ portrays itself as edgy and weird, but it just all feels so obvious.

'To Die For,' released in 1995, starred Nicole Kidman as a fame-hungry and ruthless local weather girl who hires three dopey teenagers from a high school to murder her husband. The dark comedy was based in part on a true story and told in mockumentary style, and it helped launch the careers of Joaquin Phoenix and Casey Affleck. Now, 18 years later, we take a look back at the cast of the film and see what they're up to these days.

Mainstream cinema is currently driven by franchises, though sometimes it's questionable what should or shouldn't get a sequel. Surely Warner Brothers would drive a truck full of money up to Christopher Nolan's house if he did 'Inception 2,' but some stories are best left to one film only. David Cronenberg thought 'Eastern Promises' could make for a franchise, and word was out that a follow up was moving forward. Now Cronenberg says that the sequel is dead.
