Woodshock Trailer

"Are you sure you want to do this?" A24 has revealed the first official trailer for a psychological drama starring Kirsten Dunst titled Woodshock. This is the "exquisite feature film debut of visionary fashion designers Kate and Laura Mulleavy" of Rodarte. Kirsten Dunst stars as a woman suffering from a "profound loss", who falls deeper into paranoia after taking a potent drug. The full cast includes Joe Cole, Lorelei Linklater, Steph DuVall, and Pilou Asbæk (from Ghost in the Shell). This looks like much more than a stoner film, with some seriously trippy, experimental visuals. I'm not sure I'm into this, seems more like an art piece that belongs in museums than anything that belongs in cinemas. But I haven't seen it. Take a look.

Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Kate & Laura Mulleavy's Woodshock, direct from YouTube:

Woodshock Poster

Woodshock is a hypnotic exploration of isolation, paranoia, and grief that exists in a dream-world all its own. Kirsten Dunst stars as Theresa, a haunted young woman spiraling in the wake of profound loss, torn between her fractured emotional state and the reality-altering effects of a potent cannabinoid drug. Immersive, spellbinding, and sublime, Woodshock transcends genre to become a singularly thrilling cinematic experience that marks the arrival of the Mulleavy siblings as a major new voice in film. Woodshock is both written and directed by Kate Mulleavy and Laura Mulleavy, two "visionary" fashion designers making their feature directorial debut. This has not premiered at any film festivals yet. A24 will release the Mulleavys' Woodshock in theaters starting September 15th this fall. What do you make of it?

She's a very good and authentic actress indeed. She was great in Spiderman. Ooops! Sorry Bo. ;D

I love how easy it is to manipulate Like a puppet with Down Syndrome Pavlov's dog aint got nothing on you. You and Tarek separated at birth...low IQ twins tossed to the curb by a meth whore

Goddamn, is that Bob again? Crafty little fella...

She was the worst thing about Spider-Man for me. Terribly miscast. The Virgin Suicides however, very good in that. And Melancholia.

Hey Raw. You were maybe expecting a Mary Jane faithful to the comic books. Am I right?

tarek on May 10, 2017


I wasn't happy with her performance. Spider-Man 2 is probably my favorite Spider-Man movie and the glaringly missed opportunity is Duntz's performance. It felt like she was just saying lines and just wasn't that great. No emotion or depth. Her Broadway performance in SM2 was pretty much the exact representation of Mary Jane. I know comic to film adaptations will have differences, and I account for that to some extent. But if I don't buy the performances of all the actors/actresses for the main characters, it's a fail.

Fair enough.

Hahahahahaha, ok, I salute to that.

Deal! I am the Anvil of Crom! May your hammer crush every Bob on Earth! ;D

tarek on May 10, 2017


I'm afraid Bob has a crush on your crushing hammer Bo. Violence will not solve anything of course Bo. And certainly not Bob's case. He's more in need of our wise guidance. Well, wise guidance punctuated with few kicks in the butt. ;D

Uh oh...we have a bad ass

Looks 70's style. I liked the floating bits.

Carpola on May 9, 2017


Loved the music in the trailer, but the random imagery is a bit too abstract for my taste. Art for art sake vibe I'm getting from this. Not my bag.

THE_RAW_ on May 10, 2017


That "seems more like an art piece.." line made me want to watch the trailer, and I'm glad I did. Will probably check this out at some point.

Your avatar's film was a worthwhile artistic experience in film, but this just looks tired.

DAVIDPD on May 10, 2017


Yeah, not saying it looks amazing, but it got me interested. I appreciate unique visual styles. We'll have to wait and see if the actual movie is any good though.

Efterklang on May 11, 2017


I like Kirsten Dunst and I like the atmosphere. Looking good to me. Maybe not for everyone, but it looks like some interesting plunging into one's soul and life. Might be very beautiful to watch ...

So much unnecessary grain...

DAVIDPD on May 10, 2017


At first I was turned off by the title as a really bad pun, but after seeing that absolutely gorgeous cinematography, I'm intrigued.
