One film that I'm looking forward to seeing at the Cannes Film Festival next month is Lars von Trier's Antichrist starring Willem Dafoe and Charlotte Gainsbourg. Besides the fact that the trailer looked quite wild and creepy, I just think cinematographer Anthony Dod Mantle's work on this is quite beautiful, and to show you some more examples of his work, we have a few new photos. These come straight from Zentropa Entertainment, so head over to Flickr if you want to use any of them as your desktop wallpaper. Otherwise, check out the gorgeous photos below and let us know if you're excited to eventually see this as well.
A grieving couple (Dafoe and Gainsbourg) retreats to their cabin 'Eden' in the woods, hoping to repair their broken hearts and troubled marriage. But nature takes its course and things go from bad to worse.
Antichrist is both written and directed by prolific Danish filmmaker Lars von Trier, of an extensive number of past films, including Nocturne, The Element of Crime, Dancer in the Dark, Dogville, Manderlay, and The Boss of It All most recently. As far as I know, the film doesn't have a US distributor just yet. It is expected to premiere at the Cannes Film Festival this summer before hitting theaters in Europe throughout May and June. Look for major updates during Cannes, as I expect we'll hear more on Antichrist around then.
