Update: Álex de la Iglesia's (Balada Triste de Trompeta) The Last Circus trailer

TheLastCircus.jpgThe teaser trailer for Álex de la Iglesia's Balada Triste de Trompeta, otherwise known as The Last Circus teaser trailer, has arrived online and there's one thing I can say, clowns with machine guns doing a Heat moment are pretty damn awesome on screen.

The film is set in a circus and is used to reflect the political conflicts in Spain through the Spanish Civil War and dictatorship.

I first saw an Álex de la Iglesia film when he introduced the television film The Baby's Room at the Dead by Dawn Horror festival, and I was taken in by his style and the creepiness of that film. He directed The Oxford Murders after that starring John Hurt. He has bags of visual style as well as being a strong screenwriter. I've enjoyed the films of his I've seen.

Now Balada Triste de Trompeta (The Last Circus) looks like something rather different and a little bizarre, but there are some rather cool looking moments in it.

The excellent Quiet Earth found the teaser which you can see below:

Update: Here's the full trailer through Twitch, more clown action that looks both violent and pretty damn scary:
