Things get bloodier in the new international trailer for The Neon Demon as it showcases at the Cannes Film Festival.
The Cannes Film Festival is progressing at a rapid pace and as movies are getting showcased every day. Woody Allen’s Café Society and Jodie Foster’s Money Monster have already been showcased at Cannes and the next up is Nicolas Winding Refn‘s The Neon Demon. Refn’s movie involves the world of modelling with all its perks of sex, fame, money, drugs and anorexic models with bloody agendas.

While the attendees at the festival are actually getting to watch the movie, the rest of the world will have to wait. That is probably why ScanBox and Space Rocket presented trailer for the movie.
The Neon Demon trailer was released recently and stars Elle Fanning as the main character Jesse. In the opening scene, we see Christina Hendricks who is probably playing a modelling agency personnel telling Jesse that a lot of girls come in the agency and they are good but she tells Jesse that she was destined for greatness. Jesse smiles and gets excited as she enters the superficial world of modelling and we hear the words that beauty isn’t everything, it’s the only thing.
We see other models looking at Jesse enviously as Jenna Malone’s character says that she has that thing. We see other people’s attention turning to Jesse, some positive, some negative.
We hear Jesse then. She smiles and we hear her voice say that she knows what she looks like while other models feels tortured in her presence and one of them smashes a glass as Jesse says that women will kill to look like her. The trailer then progresses to the strobe light effect.
We see glimpses of Jesse alone, posing. Other models and some sexual scenes filled here and there. There is a hint of paranoia and some disturbing behaviour as well. We get introduced to the cast Elle Fanning, Jenna Malone, Bella Heathcote and Abby Lee and get a glimpse of Keanu Reeves too.

At the end, we see Jesse standing over a pool holding a knife and we hear her say that her mother used to call her dangerous when she was younger. Refn has said that the trailer has been inspired by arty ‘80s horror movies like Paul Schrader’s version of Cat People and Tony Scott’s The Hunger. The movie is due to hit theatres on June 24th.
