Official US Poster for Lars von Trier's 'Melancholia' More of the Same
Wait - this is the brand new, official US release poster via Vulture for Melancholia? WTF? I've had quite a tumultuous relationship with the marketing for Lars von Trier's Melancholia, to be frank, it sucks. It's gorgeous imagery, sure, but that's just straight from the movie. As for the posters themselves, well, they've been as uninspired and unexciting as a poster could possibly be - and this von Trier film deserves better. My complaint about this new poster is that we've seen this before. In fact, half of this was already the teaser poster, yet they couldn't design anything new? What gives, Magnolia Pictures? Check it out below anyway.
Melancholia stars Kirsten Dunst, plus Charlotte Gainsbourg, Kiefer Sutherland & Alexander Skarsgård.
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.
