After what seems like a million-year wait, Nicolas Winding Refn is back with another movie, The Neon Demon. And hot on the heels of its inclusion at this year’s Cannes film festival, the film’s first trailer has dropped:
Aside from all the crazy style and massive doses of beautiful color going on, this seems very reminiscent of Black Swan. I have a feeling that won’t be the case once we see the entire film, however. The plot synopsis describes a group of Hollywood elites who devour young actresses like the one played by Elle Fanning, but the trailer kind of makes her out to be the primary danger everyone else has to watch out for.
Either way, I’m sure the story ends happily for everyone. We’ll get a better idea of what’s ahead of us when reviews out of Cannes later this year.
