Julianne Moore looks like she steals David Cronenberg’s upcoming movie “Maps to the Stars.” She’s featured in a new trailer that reveals the film’s dark, twisted side and more about Moore’s tormented character.

The ensemble film also stars Mia Wasikowska, John Cusack, Robert Pattinson, Olivia Williams and Sarah Gadon.

The film is billed as a dark comedy that probes the underside of life in Hollywood, scarred by obsession, ego, greed and insanity.

Moore plays Havana Segrand, a narcissistic actress who lives in the shadow of her legendary screen actress mother. She’s pushed to the edge of a nervous breakdown when she’s asked to reprise a role her mother made famous.

Pattinson plays limo driver Jerome Fontana, a struggling actor who becomes entwined in a sordid affair with Moore’s character.

Wasikowska’s character Agatha Weiss is the pyromaniac daughter of a famous TV psychologist (Cusack) and his controlling wife (Williams), who manages her child-actor son’s career.

With the family on the verge of an explosion, all of its secrets come pouring out. There’s even a ghost stirring the pot, according to a synopsis of the movie.

Check out the trailer below and see why Moore won best actress for her role at the Cannes Film Festival. And be sure to follow IM on Twitter for the latest movie news.
