Creepy, Dark Love Story in the Final Official 'Heartless' Trailer
Where the hell did this come from? (That pun will make sense after you watch this.) Apple has debuted an official trailer for Philip Ridley's Heartless, starring Jim Sturgess and Clémence Poésy. I actually do know about this film, as we featured a trailer for it earlier this year, but haven't heard much about it since, mainly because IFC quietly picked it up and is opening it very limited this fall. It's a Faust-themed dark, romantic drama about a guy with a heart-shaped birthmark on his face who sees demons in London. You've just got to watch the trailer, it's wild and a little wacky, but I think I may actually want to see it now. Enjoy!

Heartless is both written and directed by British filmmaker and playwright Philip Ridley, of The Reflecting Skin and The Passion of Darkly Noon previously. This was shot in London way back in 2008. It already hit theaters in the UK this year, but is only now arriving in the US via IFC Midnight. Heartless plays limited in November (no exact date yet) with an On-Demand preview starting September 22nd. Official website here.
