Behold the Apocalypse in Lars Von Trier’s ‘Melancholia’ Trailer!

The end of the world is coming, courtesy of Danish director Lars Von Trier.

The official website was launched for Von Trier’s Melancholia that confirms the plot, an unknown planet hidden behind the sun has come out of hiding and is about to hit the Earth.

Starring Kirsten Dunst, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Kiefer Sutherland, Charlotte Rampling, Alexander Skarsgaard, Stellan Skarsgard, Udo Kier, and John Hurt, Magnolia Pictures has already acquired domestic distro rights for the pic described as “A beautiful movie about the end of the world.” With Von Trier, it’s unknown if he’s being ironic, although the footage is nothing short of spectacular.

One criticism: at the end of the footage, it looks more like the planet is passing rather than about to actually hit Earth. Not sure if that’s intentional, but they may want to rework that FX in my opinion….
For those of you at work, beware of boobies.
