Kirsten Dunst Is Really Edgy Now

April 16, 2010


Lars von Trier has a new female lead to be emotionally annihilated by his creatively exploitative work! It's Spider-Man's girlfriend:

[Kirsten Dunst] just been set by Lars von Trier to play the lead role in Melancholia that Penelope Cruz was negotiating before she jumped to Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. Melancholia is a sci-fi disaster film that will shoot July through September in Southern Sweden, with Charlotte Gainsbourg, Kiefer Sutherland, Charlotte Rampling, Alexander Skarsgaard, Stellan Skarsgaard and Udo Kier also attached to roles.

Man, Lars, are you even trying anymore? Not about the Kirsten Dunst casting, just these titles lately. Melancholia, Antichrist--what's next, Of Satan and Genital Mutilation? Come on. At least put enough effort into veiling how bizarre, depressing, and largely inaccessible your films are going to be that a few freaked-out moms accidentally go see them. Otherwise, what's the point?
