‘Melancholia’ US Trailer

There’s not a whole lot in this first official domestic trailer for Lars von Trier‘s Melancholia that we haven’t seen in previous trailers and clips. (Such as the great UK trailer we just saw a few days ago.) But what the hell, the film is among our most-anticipated of the year, and this trailer offers up a great HD look at the gorgeous and subtle cinematography from Manuel Alberto Claro.

So hit the jump and get one more look at the ways in which sisters played by Kirsten Dunst and Charlotte Gainsbourg deal with the possibility of the impending end of life on Earth.

Yahoo has a lovely HD feed.

Justine, a woman suffering from an extreme case of clinical depression, celebrates her marriage with a extravagant reception that is marred bickering family members, leaving the bride feeling withdrawn. The following morning Justine notices a planet, with no orbit of its own, hurtling toward Earth. And as the newlyweds are helpless against Justine’s depression ruining their marriage, the entire wedding party can do nothing but freak out and watch as the world comes to an end.

Melancholia is playing TIFF, the New York Film Festival and Fantastic Fest. It opens in the UK on Sept 30, hits VOD in the US on October 7, and then opens in limited US theaters on November 11.
