Controversial Danish director Lars von Trier’s new film Melancholia is is hitting the promotional trail before its US release on November 11th. Five character posters of Kirsten Dunst, Charlotte Gainsbourg, John Hurt, Kiefer Sutherland and Alexander Skarsgård, and one of the director himself have been released by Empire.
Triers’ drama tells the story of “two sisters, who find their already strained relationship challenged as a mysterious new planet threatens to collide into the Earth.”
It has received mostly positive reviews during its time on the festival circuit and after following this one for a while, I’m definitely looking forward to checking it out.
Melancholia stars Kirsten Dunst, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Alexander Skarsgård, Kiefer Sutherland, Stellan Skarsgård and John Hurt and is in cinemas on November 11, 2011.
