FESTIVAL DE CANNES – TRAILER OF THE DAY: Melancholia

This I predict will be a big one this year. Kirsten Dunst and Kiefer Sutherland combined together will deliver a story laden with melancholy as well as drenched with action. Perfect for another end of the world depictions.

Justine (Dunst) is marrying Michael (Alexander Skarsgard) at the home of her sister Claire (Charlotte Gainsbourg) and brother-in-law John (Keifer Sutherland). During this it comes to light that Melancholia, a planet hidden by the Sun, has been discovered and is heading straight for the earth. Melancholia is branded a Sci-fi Thriller, so I’m not entirely sure what will become of the characters and whether any aliens are involved. The trailer doesn’t give to much away, which leaves me intrigued as to the what the drama will be all about.

Melancholia is in the Competition category at Cannes and is set to be released in the UK in September 2011. So keep you eyes peeled for this one.
