Just last week I posted the poster and opening credits for Gasper Noe’s ENTER THE VOID, well today IFC Films have posted the offical American trailer for the film which you can check out after the break.This is Noe’slong awaited follow up movie since the controversial Irreversible which premiered at the 2009 Cannes Film festival.
I dont know why its taken so long for the movie to get an American distributor (still no sign of a UK release though) possibly a sign of how difficult a movie to promote or simply the directors reputation prevails.This marketing is however less risque than the Japanese one which did portray alot of the movies sexual nature though this version does play up on the drug side of thingsThe trailer does a fantastic job promoting the movie well I do love the strobe lighting, colour scheme of the movie which is a brilliant repersentation of the Tokyo Nightlife where the movie is based in.
IFC Films are giving this flick a limited release stateside from September 24th.
Oscar and his sister Linda are recent arrivals in Tokyo. Oscar’s a small time drug dealer, and Linda works as a nightclub stripper. One night, Oscar is caught up in a police bust and shot. As he lies dying, his spirit, faithful to the promise he made his sister that he would never abandon her refuses to abandon the world of the living. It wanders through the city, his visions growing evermore distorted, evermore nightmarish. Past, present and future merge in a hallucinatory maelstrom.
