Amazon Studios has released a mesmerizing trailer for the upcoming Nicolas Winding Refn film The Neon Demon. The Danish-born Refn is best known for the acclaimed Drive (2011), which won him the Best Director Award at the Cannes Film Festival.
Not much is known about the plot of The Neon Demon, but the film stars Elle Fanning as an aspiring model who moves to Los Angeles and meets a world of beauty and horror. Keanu Reeves, Christina Hendricks and Jena Malone co-star. You can watch the trailer here:
Icon Films in the UK subsequently released a 30-second teaser, which includes a first look at Keanu Reeves. This one contains brief nudity, so be warned:
The film promises to be a visual treat at the least, and the hypnotic visuals call David Lynch to mind. Keep an eye on this one – Refn may be bringing some Drive to Mulholland Drive.
