Robert Pattinson, Mia Wasikowska, Julianne Moore and John Cusack tower over Hollywood in the new poster for David Cronenberg’s showbiz satire.
Narrowly losing out on the Palme d’Or at Cannes this year, Cronenberg’s nightmarish black comedy follows classics like The Player, Sullivan’s Travels and Sunset Blvd. – taking aim at the whole film industry and flipping his starry cast on their well-groomed heads.
Ageing actresses, wannabe starlets, Hollywood dynasties, tweenage drug addictions and, er, Carrie Fisher all wallow in Cronenberg’s murky mire – all the while, as in this super-stylish new poster, holding an A-list black mirror up to California’s dream factory.
Early reports peg it as the Canadian auteur’s best film in decades, and it’s not long before we get the chance to agree – finally set for a UK release on 26 September.
