Melancholia Trailer From Lars von Trier

Melancholia Trailer: Kirsten Dunst and Alexander Skarsgard Marry, Worry About the Earth's Destruction

Director Lars von Trier is known for his unusual and visceral aesthetic, like in 2009's Antichrist, and his upcoming film, Melancholia, looks to offer more of the same. Kirsten Dunst stars as Justine, a woman who's already questioning her happiness on her wedding day to her handsome new husband (Alexander Skarsgard). She's also clashing with her sister Claire, played by Charlotte Gainsbourg, while Kiefer Sutherland makes a rare film appearance as Claire's prickly husband. The relationships would be enough for a rich psychological drama, but there's actually an, um, disaster angle.

Another planet has just emerged from behind the Sun and is on an apparent collision course with Earth, making the principal characters understandably anxious. It's a strange combination of genres (think Margot at the Wedding meets Armageddon), but there's no denying that the bit we get to see in the preview is stunningly photographed. And for all you True Blood fans, take note: it's Eric in a tux! Watch the preview when you
