Elle Fanning Is A Blood-Drenched Model In The Neon Demon Trailer
18 April 2016
To the uninitiated, the modeling world seems glamorous, otherworldly and, at times, vicious. The new trailer for Neon Demon certainly won’t help quell those notions.
Directed by Nicolas Winding Refn, the film stars Elle Fanning as Jesse, a young woman who moves to Los Angeles to become a model. There, “her youth and vitality are devoured by a group of beauty-obsessed women who will use any means necessary to get what she has,” according to the mysterious plot description.
Looks creepy, too.
Neon Demon looks to be filled with the same color-drenched imagery Refn has become known for — Refn’s last two narrative films, Drive and Only God Forgives, featured Ryan Gosling in some pretty beautiful surroundings doing some pretty bloody things.
Refn and the cast — which includes Jena Malone, Keanu Reeves, and Christina Hendricks — remain tight-lipped about any further plot details, so time will tell if Fanning’s Jesse will be the one spilling the blood or not. We’ll all have to wait to find out.
