Women would kill to look like Elle Fanning, but in Nicolas Winding Refn‘s Neon Demon the wicked die young, watch new UK trailer! Ahead of it’s world premier at Cannes Film Festival, Icon Film Distribution have released a brand new promo, seductively sexy, Striking, Gorgeously stylish making it one of Croisette’s hottest tickets.
The Danish Auteur’s nightmarish journey into the world of fashion.Where the glitz and glamour might be face value, under the fame is Sex,drugs, corruption but as Jesse says “Beauty isn’t everything,it’s everything“, predators beware.
In The Neon Demon, when aspiring model Jesse (Elle Fanning) moves to Los Angeles, her youth and vitality are devoured by a group of beauty-obsessed women who will use any means necessary to get what she has.
You may say this is the best of the trailers so far Provocative, stylish opulent but most of all digs a little deeper into the film’s story, especially the characters. Jena Malone especially gets more screen time as the models make up artist, teasing the idea whilst she’s not a model, she is involved in this cabal. Still no clues to Keanu Reeves role but as this promo plays more to it’s potential horror tropes, is a leader? Jesse’s father? Or the person trying to expose everything? We do certainly get an vampire type thing going on playing into 1980s arthouse horrors such as The Hunger. Winding Refn is certainly bowing the altar of Dario Argento with this one with echoes of Black Swan, Mulholland Drive.
After the boos and hisses of Only God Forgives Cannes premier could Nicolas Winding Refn‘s 2016 visit be alot more pleasing to his ears?
The Neon Demon has a of Jena Malone, Abbey Lee, Bella Heathcote, ,Christina Hendricks and Keanu Reeves. We now know that the film has a confirmed UK release date which will be 8th July, so update those diaries!
