Lars Von Trier's MELANCHOLIA has a sweet trailer!

If you know me, you know that I LOVED Lars Von Trier's 2009 film ANTICHRIST. To me, it was the cinematic equivalent of drone metal bands such as SUNN 0))). So when I heard about MELANCHOLIA a while back, I was beyond excited. It has Charlotte Gainsborough, Kirsten Dunst, and Kiefer Sutherland in a story where there's a planet on a collision course with Earth. With the backdrop of a wedding, we see people's reactions to this impending doom, which seems very interesting. This seems to be his most accessible work yet. Then again, ANTICHRIST seemed pretty normal until the last 30 minutes. Anyway, please enjoy the beautiful trailer below. MELANCHOLIA has no release date yet, but it will debut in the Cannes Film Festival later this year.
