Melancholia trailer online
Lars von Trier's end of the world film has delivered a trailer, and it's a nice mixture of Trier weirdness and story development from the film, I wonder how it's going to turn out? It's certainly hooked me enough to want to see it, particularly with the cast.
Kirsten Dunst, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Kiefer Sutherland, Charlotte Greynsburg, John Hurt, Alexander Skarsgård, Stellan Skarsgård and Udo Keir are the star attractions and are peppered through the trailer, and interesting mix for a very interesting film.
This isn't going to be a Hollywood epic kind of end of the world film, and yet there are glimpses of it with the shots from space but the scale of it looks set to be kept very small as we watch the changing weather patterns, the effect on people, and the mesmerising moment of Kirsten Dunst standing as a strange light rises from everything in the frame which may mark the end itself.
Then there's the fact that Lars von Trier has written and directed, so prepare yourself for glimpses of madness. Right now the trailer for Melancholia is looking rather intriguing, and while it doesn't tell the story in typical fashion, rest assured that's going to be a reflection on the film itself.
For those of you who want to know more, there are some interesting tastes of what the film is going to offer us after the trailer space. Be aware that spoilers follow, although just as much as Trier as wanted to reveal, so watch the trailer and then be done with it if you want to know no more.
Reminder that what follows could be classed as spoilers.
First off Melancholia starts with the end, and we'll see the end of the world first before heading right back to follow the story towards that point. The main story will follow two sisters towards the end that we've already seen, one is preparing to marry while the other has been married for some time, the one about to get married is suffering from a growing depression and sets herself as protector of her young nephews.
What do you think of the Melancholia story? Is it interesting enough to get you into the cinema?
