Yet another trailer for David Cronenberg‘s thriller Maps to the Stars has popped up online.

Premiering at Festival de Cannes next week, a “complex look at Hollywood and what it reveals about Western culture,” starring the likes of Robert Pattinson, Julianne Moore, John Cusack, Sarah Gadon, Mia Wasikowska and Olivia Williams.

The films release date has yet to be announced, but Cannes kicks off next Wednesday.

A contemporary tale exploring the demons of our celebrity-obsessed society, story follows the Weiss family, which is led by Stafford (Cusack), a psychotherapist and life coach who made his fortune with self-help books. His wife (Williams) is the overbearing mother-manager of their 13-year-old son (Evan Bird), a TV star recently out of drug rehab. Their estranged daughter (Wasikowska) has just been released from a psychiatric hospital and befriended a limo driver (Pattinson) who is also an aspiring actor.

One of Stafford’s celebrity clients is Havana (Moore), an actress with an unusual new assistant. Havana’s dream of reprising her dead mother’s (Gadon) starring role from the 1960s slowly crumbles while ghosts, death and all manner of vices collide.

Take a look at the latest trailer for Maps to the Stars, another ambitious project from the Cosmopolis director David Cronenberg.
