The film focuses on the darker side of Hollywood celebrity culture where Pattinson, 28, plays a limo driver who gets his fair share of action. In the new trailer of David Cronenberg's film, Pattinson shares a passionate kiss with co-star, Mia Wasikowska, who plays the character of Agatha Weiss.

In the trailer shown below, we see "The Hunger Games" actress, Julianne Moore, visibly upset as she sits listening to a voice message telling her that a part has been given to someone else. She chucks the photo in anger and yells in frustration.

The video gives a good preview of the madness in Hollywood and it's trickling effects on the individuals who live in the culture, writes The Independent. The story is centered on the Weiss family, a Hollywood dynasty and the film gives us a glimpse of the dysfunctional lives and relationships that surround their home.

As a limo driver, Pattinson's character dreams of making it big in Hollywood and "was inspired by screenplay writer Bruce Wagner's own experiences when starting out in Hollywood," reported the news site.

"Jerome would never accept that he is just a limo driver. I think he feels he's just waiting for his break," quoted The Independent of Pattinson who spoke about his role.

Cronenberg and Pattinson have already worked together, their first being 2012's "Cosmopolis."

The plot of the film is as follows: "The Weiss family are an archetypical Hollywood dynasty - Dr Stafford Weiss (John Cusack) is a psychotherapist whose self-help books have made him a fortune. His wife Cristina (Olivia Williams) is the overbearing mom-ager of their thirteen-year old son, Benjie (Evan Bird), a prodigious child star fresh out of drug rehab and their estranged daughter Agatha (Mia Wasikowska) has recently been released from a psychiatric hospital. Agatha is now back in Hollywood making friends with a wannabe actor/writer limo driver named Jerome (Robert Pattinson) and with a new job as PA to one of Stafford's clients - the neurotic and tempestuous actress Havana Segrand (Julianne Moore), whose dream of reprising her dead mother's starring role from the 1960s is beginning to haunt her."

See Pattinson, Wasikowska, Moore and John Cusack in "Maps To The Stars" which will hit theaters on September 27th in the United States. It will be released in U.K. cinemas on September 26th.
