Must Watch: First Beautiful Trailer for Lars von Trier's 'Melancholia'
"Life is only on Earth... and not for long." Another mesmerizing new trailer to watch. Out of nowhere, Zentropa has debuted the official trailer (website / Vimeo) for Danish director Lars von Trier's new film Melancholia. This is sort of a sci-fi drama about another planet that's going to collide with the Earth, but it's really about a wedding and the people there. Kirsten Dunst, Charlotte Gainsbourg, and Kiefer Sutherland star with Alexander Skarsgård, Charlotte Rampling, John Hurt, Stellan Skarsgård and Udo Kier. This is beautiful, but as always with von Trier, very very weird, but that's why it's so intriguing. Enjoy!
Watch the official trailer for Lars von Trier's Melancholia:
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, but it doesn't have a release date yet, as we're expecting the film to premiere at the Cannes Film Festival this summer.
