Starring Kirsten Dunst, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Kiefer Sutherland, Charlotte Rampling, Alexander Skarsgaard, Stellan Skarsgard, Udo Kier and John Hurt, Magnolia Pictures has announced that they will release Lars von Trier’s dramatic thriller Melancholia (review) on VOD October 7, before sticking it in limited theaters on November 11.
Not the kind of film you’d want to see on Thanksgiving weekend, a UK trailer has been added below that’s a bit more representational of the tonal shifting that occurs in the end of the world thriller. While not a horror film, Melancholia will emotional destroy you. That’s a promise.
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.
