Lars Von Trier unleashes his latest doom and gloom epic on UK cinema goers this Friday, and just to get you in the mood, we found six one-sheets for you to have a look at. Sadly, the film is too ‘arty’ for many mainstream cinemas, so you may have to look for this in your nearest arthouse cinema, but the word is the film is superb. Empire magazine have given the film the rare five star treatment.
Like him or not, you cannot deny that Trier makes challenging and often provocative films, and Melancholia looks no different. The posters feature the main all star cast, Kirsten Dunst, Kiefer Sutherland, John Hurt, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Alexander Skarsgard and in pure Trier fashion, the last poster is of the man himself. Enjoy!
The film tells the tale of two sisters and how their relationship changes due to an un-welcome event that is just a small matter of another planet about to collide with the Earth! Supposedly the planet has been ‘hiding’ and has now decided to show itself and is on a collision course with Earth.
