Marina Antunes [Celluloid 04.14.16] horror thriller

[UPDATED with the UK teaser, featuring our first look at Keanu Reeves!]

I can't help but think that somehow, someway, Nicolas Winding Refn tapped into some of the dark corners of my mind and pulled The Neon Demon from inside.

From the get go, this thriller set in the modeling world and starring Elle Fanning as an up-and-coming supermodel who becomes the target of a group of glamour obsessed women who want everything she has, sounded promising – especially coming from the mind that previously brought us Drive and Only God Forgives. Now that I've seen the trailer, I can't wait to see this movie.

Shot by super-talented cinematographer Natasha Braier (The Rover, Somers Town, The Milk of Sorrow) and including the striking visuals we've come to expect from a Winding Refn project, featuring music by Cliff Martinez and a long cast list which also includes Jena Malone, Christina Hendricks, Alessandro Nivola, Bella Heathcote and Keanu Reeves among many others, this is definitely one to keep on the radar.

The Neon Demon will make its world debut in competition at Cannes in May and I expect it'll make the festival rounds before opening theatrically. If that's Amazon's plan. At this point, the studio has yet to make a solid awards run and it remains to be seen if that can turn around their track record.

Here's the UK/international Teaser:

Recommended Release: Drive
