Melancholia

We've already seen the first mesmerizing trailer and a second, shorter UK trailer for Lars von Trier's sci-fi infused drama Melancholia. Though the film's backdrop has a planet on a path to collide with Earth, the real story comes from the people attending a wedding and the relationships between them. Kirsten Dunst stars in the film with a supporting cast including Kiefer Sutherland, Charlotte Gainsbourg, John Hurt, Stellan and Alexander Skarsgård and Charlotte Rampling, but in this new trailer it's the stunning cinematography that seems to be the star and makes this a must-see on the big screen. Enjoy!

Here's the new theatrical trailer for Melancholia courtesy of Yahoo! Movies:

Justine (Dunst) and Michael (Skarsgård) are celebrating their marriage at a party in the home of her sister (Gainsbourg) and brother-in-law. Meanwhile, the planet Melancholia, is heading towards Earth...

Melancholia is both written & directed by controversial/brilliant Danish filmmaker Lars von Trier, of films like Medea, Dancer in the Dark, Dogville, The Boss of It All and Antichrist most recently. Magnolia Pictures will be distributing Melancholia in the US later this year, and has officially set a November 11th theatrical release, as well as On-Demand starting October 7th. Visit the website. This is also playing at Fantastic Fest.

    Besides IMO being one of Lars' finest films, cinematographer Manuel Alberto Claro has simply outdone himself. I strongly recommend this film to anyone who haven't seen it! Outstanding performances from the entire cast and simply stunning visuals.

    It's been a long time since I've seen a trailer that does such a poor job of conveying just what the movie is actually about. It literally felt like there was no story, just that they wanted to show off the pretties. I'm really not trying to troll - I don't mind a movie with great visuals and no story (I saw SuckerPunch, after all). This just left me feeling no compulsion at all to see the movie. And that's kind of sad, because I can see a dozen different ways you could use a storyline like "another planet is on a collision course with Earth" that don't have to be crazy sci-fi stuff.

      SuckerPunch had great visuals? Have we seen different films? Besides, you sound like you have never seen a film by Trier or any art house for that matter.

      Melancholia really isnt supposed to be another sci-fi "another planet is on a collision course with Earth" movie.. If you like that stuff, go see some blockbuster movie.  Also having mentioned SuckerPunch in a post about Melancholia is just wrong, gtfo.

        Wow, you guys really don't understand context, do you? @reeft:disqus: You don't know that the story runs in reverse from the trailer, you know that because you've likely read background on the movie. I haven't. My criticism has nothing to do with art house films or Trier's capabilities (I'm not going to debate who the bigger movie snob is). Effectively my only point is that this trailer being my only exposure to the film, it does a terrible job of inspiring me to go see the film, a point @max completely misses above. And I explain why that is. Believe it or not, we can actually have different opinions on that. So please respect my right to that opinion. If you're going to shout me down for it, you better have a better position that "lol ur stoopid, gtfo."

          Disagree. I get where you're coming from. This is my only exposure to it as well. However if you have any appreciation for cinematography and just beauty in general this is intriguing beyond words. What story that it does show seems to be unique and for the most part original. It does a great job of getting the viewer interested, but still not giving anything away. If you want to find out more go read up on it I suppose. In this day and age however where there are far too many trailers that give away entire plot lines, seeing a trailer like this is refreshing.

          "You don't know that the story runs in reverse from the trailer, you know that because you've likely read background on the movie. I haven't." Ummmmm...
  • Jedibilly
    So...there's a happy ending? Or everybody dies at end? Not sure if I want to see that....
    • http://www.pewpewpew.de reeft
      The film starts with the apocalypse and then tells the story.

    Didn't this director go a bit batty and say he's a Nazi? HAHAHAHA!

      I don't know the context of the question he was asked, but the incident was that someone asked him a question and he started answering it and then got stuck when he said that he 'got' Hitler, and then it sota snowballed from there. He said "Ok, fine, I'm a Nazi" at the end because he was basically trapped without a decent way out of a line of questioning. Mostly frustration and nerves, I'd guess. But yeah, the whole "I get Hitler" and "I can sympathize with Hitler" thing wasn't supposed to mean "Yeah, I totally understand why Hitler wanted to murder millions of people", which is how people took it. Honestly, I think a movie that looked at Hitler as a sympathetic character would be interesting. Hitler wasn't satan or anything, he was a guy. He was a guy with some serious character flaws and a lot of ambition. He didn't think he was evil, he thought he was a good guy. He thought his plan was the best plan for the world. His goals were extremely ambitious and his intentions were - in his mind - pure and just.

    Weird that this is coming out right after Another Earth just did. Though that was another planet earth, this just seems like another planet, still, similar idea taken in a different direction.

    Such a crappy movie, don't waste your money or your time.
