New Melancholia Character Banners
A sneak peek at Von Trier's latest

New Melancholia Character Banners

Usually, when we get our sticky hands on some interesting character banners, they're for a big franchise picture featuring wizards or mutants. Well, not this time (unless we've seriously misread the film), because this lot are for Lars Von Trier's Melancholia, which may or may not be about depression, broken families struggling to connect, and/or the end of the world.

It's all held together by a brilliant performance by Kirsten Dunst as Justine, a woman who may (or may not) be depressed (or she may be entirely rational). Also featured here are: her flighty father (John Hurt), faithful fiance (Alexander Skarsgard), hot-tempered (but not so bad) brother-in-law John (Keifer Sutherland) and sister Claire (Charlotte Rampling), who's sort of second-lead in the film. Director von Trier also gets a tribute, which makes an odd sort of sense since he's also almost a character in the film.

Melancholia is out this Friday, so get a front-row seat for the end of the world in your local multiplex very soon.
