Neon Demon trailer: Nicolas Winding Refn directs the thriller

Posted on

Earlier on Thursday, the Cannes lineup officially confirmed that Nicolas Winding Refn — who won Best Director at the festival previously with Drive — will be returning to the Croisette with his high-fashion horror show, Neon Demon. And now the very first trailer has debuted, ahead of its summer release. 

Neon Demon centers on Jesse, a girl who has recently moved to Los Angeles to become a model, and as expected, things will get insanely dark from there. 

Like Refn’s previous work, the trailer boasts an incredible visual style, compliments of cinematographer Natasha Braier (The Rover). 

Released by Amazon Studios, Neon Demon, which also stars Jena Malone, Christina Hendricks, Keanu Reeves, Abbey Lee, and Bella Heathcote, is expected to hit theaters in June
