The infamous Danish film maker Lars von Trier, the man behind the excellent but controversial Antichrist, has finished filming Melancholia. Melancholia has a very impressive cast, which includes Kiefer Sutherland, Kirsten Dunst and Stellan Skarsgard.
The new movie, Melancholia, is expected to be shown at the Cannes film festival in May this year. Little is known about the movie at this time, but according to Guardian:
Von Trier has described his new film as a “psychological disaster movie” and “a beautiful movie about the end of the world”, but what will it look like? “Shit. No, I hope not, but a little shittier than the one I did before,” the Danish director told the assembled press pack at the Trollhättan film studios in Sweden, where shooting for Melancholia began last week. This was about as much as the notoriously guarded Von Trier was prepared to give away.
Elsewhere, we have seen the movie labeled as a “psychological disaster film”. That’s all we know about it for the moment. Apart from what the preview tells, and that’s not all that much! Here is the official trailer for Melancholia:
According to Norwegian newspaper VG, Lars von Trier has started work on a new movie which is likely to be given the title Nymphomaniac – a movie about extreme sexually activity. To VG, von Trier says that he expects financing of the new movie to be relatively easy with a title like that.
