You can read a synopsis and check out the trailer for Maps to the Stars below. And of course, a NSFW warning is in effect.

If you DO happen to be at work, I’ve also included the previously released green band trailer for your viewing pleasure.
Few locations are more effective for a horror movie than space or other planets. The vast unknown; the deep, dark, devastating loneliness; the unpredictability. All perfect tools for creating fear.
So it’s never surprising to see a new horror set in such places, and this one looks mighty unsettling. The movie is titled The Last Days on Mars, and it stars Liev Schreiber, Olivia Williams, Romola Garai, and Elias Koteas. It follows a group of astronauts collecting specimens on Mars when a mysterious force begins to take them out one by one right before they’re supposed to finish the job and leave for home.

The Ghost Writer: Prisoner Of Convictions
The consequences of our transgressions are the stains that cannot be cleansed away. The past is the vessel that we cherish and regret with equal measure. Art can be the ultimate catharsis when dealing with the past or attempting to get through the present depending on what one’s situation is. Imagine what life would be like if we could write are our memoirs with the aid of a ghost writer who believes everything we say. Unfortunately, what would happen if the ghost writer goes to check all the information you provide? Your life would take on different meaning — more honesty might expose you to disgrace or more ridicule.
