Spring Breakers director Harmony Korine’s next project may have just lost Jamie Foxx, but it also just attracted a bunch of great names. Idris Elba will take Foxx’s role as a gangster rapper in The Trap, which also just added Korine’s Manglehorn co-star Al Pacino, Spring Breakers star James Franco, and Robert Pattinson. Oh, and it also stars Benicio del Toro. What a cast.

David Cronenberg’s output as of late has been fairly divisive, but that isn't keeping us from feeling supremely excited for Maps to the Stars, the director's latest film in which he appropriately brings his twisted sensibilities to the land of Hollywood. Today brings the red band trailer for the film, complete with a ringing endorsement from director John Waters, who proclaims to love the film more than his own mustache — which means a whole lot.

Julianne Moore is nominated for two Best Actress Golden Globe awards this season: one for her performance as a woman struggling with early onset Alzheimer’s disease in ‘Still Alice,’ and the other for her performance as a fading actress in David Cronenberg’s ‘Maps to the Stars.’ Focus has just released a new trailer and poster for Cronenberg’s follow-up to ‘Cosmopolis,’ which is finally hitting theaters this February.

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.

We don't envy the work Robert Pattinson has to do to shed the vampiric shadow the 'Twilight' franchise cast on his career, but the actor has done a remarkable job, so far. He's being smart and working with visionary directors like David Cronenberg on 'Cosmopolis' and David Michod (who directed the fantastic 2010 movie 'Animal Kingdom') on the upcoming film, 'The Rover.'
Today, we have our first look at 'The Rover' trailer, which co-stars Guy Pearce ('Iron Man 3') and looks like an impressive, intense thriller.
