Nicolas Winding Refn’s The Neon Demon has an intense new trailer, and it looks as if Refn is slowly morphing into some New Wave combination of David Cronenberg and David Lynch.
Here is the trailer:
And the synopsis, as if that’ll do any good when it comes to actually watching The Neon Demon:
When aspiring model Jesse moves to Los Angeles, her youth and vitality are devoured by a group of beauty-obsessed women who will take any means necessary to get what she has.
The cast includes Elle Fanning, Christina Hendricks, and Keanu Reeves, who I didn’t spot anywhere in the trailer. Interesting. Reeves has top billing as a character named Hank, so I imagine his role is something pretty threatening.
The Neon Demon is being produced by Amazon Studios and will hit theaters this June.
