Audiences, however, may end up rooting for Wasikowska, because Moore plays a narcissistic actress who complains more about her job than actually doing it.
John Cusack co-stars as a rich self-help guru who counts Moore as a client, and Wasikowska as a daughter.
“I don’t know if she’s dangerous,” Cusack’s character says in an ominous clip in the preview (above) — the first from distributor Entertainment One Films.
Robert Pattinson, who took the lead in Cronenberg’s “Cosmopolis,” also has a role as a limo driver. Previously released clips ahead of the movie’s Cannes premiere proved Pattinson will have a steamy sex scene or two with Moore.
“Maps to the Stars,” written by author Bruce Wagner, will debut in theaters on Oct. 31.
