Can Someone please tell me what is happening with the Melancholia trailer with Kirsten Dunst?

You must watch the trailer for Lars Von Trier's new film Melancholia. You start out thinking that it is some sort of weird, foreign film about a wedding (with lovely Kirsten and cutie Andrew Skarsgard) but then suddenly a planet is heading towards earth that appears to have a negative affect which results in a lot of running around in the rain and Kirsten Dunst being naked near a tub. Now Von Trier is known for his weirdness (In Antichrist not one but two people get castrated) but this looks especially weird and non-sensical.

On the other hand, it is nice to see Kirsten Dunst back on the silver screen though I doubt this will get people rushing to the theater. I think Kiki's best performance was in Interview with the Vampire (this movie could kick Twilight's ass) when she was 10-years-old. She screamed, she cut Tom Cruise's throat, sucked blood and kissed Brad Pitt. I don't know if you can ever beat that (I mean Little Women was close but the worst she does is that is burn Joe's manuscript. Remember Winona Ryder played Joe? That was back when Winona Ryder had an amazing career and didn't shop lift...I mean prepare for a role).

Then Kirsten tried to be normal and finished regular high school. I actually read that she said she knew she could have probably gotten into an ivy league school primarily because she was an actress and not because she had the grades but she didn't want to do that. Kirsten made her debut as an older actress with the brilliant Bring It On and the extremely weird and blond Virgin Suicides. Then came the not-so-great Crazy/Beautiful and Get Over It followed by the epic Spider Man films which introduced that oh-so-important upside down kiss. She also did Mona Lisa Smile at some point in there which is wildly mediocre but one of my favorites because of the costumes and Julia Stiles attempting to do some weird New England accent.

Oh and don't forget the visually stunning but completely inaccurate Marie Antoinette. In the last few years Kirsten has been taking it easy (apparently there was a rehab stint at some point) with just a few quiet films in the last few years like How to Lose Friends and Alienate People and All Good Things.

Despite her need to never wear a bra and her predilection for the hipster look Kirsten has put together a great look on occasion. Here are some of my favorites.
One of my favorite Oscar dresses ever.

Love the hair, dress and shoes!

Love a good sparkly number.

Walking in Paris looking effortlessly cool.

Love the messy glamour.

Oh so French.
The famous kiss.
