Dunst Prepares for the End of the World on ‘Melancholia’ Poster

Before the official website crashed, the first poster and images were put on display for Lars von Trier’s Melancholia, an end of the world drama starring Kirsten Dunst, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Kiefer Sutherland, Charlotte Rampling, Alexander Skarsgaard, Stellan Skarsgard, Udo Kier, and John Hurt.

While the apocalyptic tale is being pegged as a drama, Von Trier is always extremely cryptic about his features that always seem to delve deep into the dark psyche.

In Melancholia, Dunst and Gainsbourg play sisters whose lives are drifting apart as the universe spectacularly unravels in what Von Trier describes as a beautiful movie about the end of the world (when a planet called Melancholia crashed into Earth).

You’ll find the one sheet inside, featuring Dunst, with more images at the film’s website (if it ever goes back up).
