‘Maps to the Stars’ Trailer: David Cronenberg’s Dank, Dark World Behind Stardom

Maps to the Stars Trailer
eOne Films

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.

'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.

Eastern Promises
Focus Features

Mainstream cinema is currently driven by franchises, though sometimes it's questionable what should or shouldn't get a sequel.

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.
