New ‘Melancholia’ Trailer Comes Out of Hiding

Melancholia opens with a wedding. You think, maybe (considering the title), it’s terse drama about a marriage circling the drain. Kind of like Revolutionary Road. But it’s a little bit more like Armageddon. With a little bit of Phenomenon. Kirsten Dunst and Alexander Skarsgard conclude their matrimonials with the observation of a planet that has been “hiding behind the sun,” now entirely, and ominously, visible to the eye. Strange things begin to happen. People freak out. Little kids say scary things. And marriages circle the drain? Yes. They sure do.

Staff editor Michael Arbeiter’s natural state of being can best be described as “mild panic attack.” His earliest memories of growing up in Queens, New York, involve nighttime conversations with a voice from his bedroom wall (the jury’s still out on what that was all about) and a love for classic television that spawned from the very first time he was allowed to watch “The Munsters.” Attending college at SUNY Binghamton, a 20-year-old Michael learned two things: that he could center his future on this love for TV and movies, and that dragons never actually existed — he was kind of late in the game on that one.
