We have until the 30th of September to prepare ourselves for Lars Von Trier’s latest to hit UK cinemas and if you were in any doubt as to what Melancholia was about here’s a new trailer to lay bare the beginning of the end.

A firm favourite on the festival circuit, and thankfully not overshadowed by the controversial comments made by its director at Cannes, Melancholia stars Kirsten Dunst, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Kiefer Sutherland, Alexander Skarsgård, Charlotte Rampling, John Hurt?, Jesper Christensen, Udo Kier?, Brady Corbet and Cameron Spurr. As you’ll see below there’s a wedding and a huge planet looming over the Earth putting a real dampner on the reception, I can’t imagine there’ll be many people vying for the tossed bouquet.

We’re seeing the film in the next few days and the review will be up on the site shortly.

Here’s the trailer,

And it was the good eggs at Yahoo who offered this up.
