Kirsten Dunst, John Hurt and Cameron Spurr attend the Melancholia UK Premiere
Justine (Kirsten Dunst) and Michael (Alexander Skarsgård) are celebrating their marriage at a sumptuous party in the home of her sister (Charlotte Gainsbourg) and brother-in-law (Kiefer Sutherland). Meanwhile, the planet, Melancholia, is heading towards Earth... MELANCHOLIA is a psychological disaster movie from director Lars von Trier.
The Fan Carpet were lucky enough to be in attendance at the UK premiere of Melancholia where we got to talk to Kirsten Dunst, John Hurt and Cameron Spurr about their experiences working with the great autuer Lars Von Trier.
Kirsten and John also took part in a Q+A session before the start of the film…
You've done the blockbusters and you've done the small indie films, where do you see your career in the future?
Kirsten Dunst: I've always balanced both, I love big blockbuster films, I love romantic comedies, I love independent films, I'm happy I'm not in a position where I've only had one path, So to me I'm open to doing all things.
What gets you attracted to the role, is it the subject matter or director or both?
John Hurt: I only have one criteria when taking a project and that's that it should stand the chance of succeeding on the level it is intended to succeed on. You take on a Lars Von Trier project and those boundaries are already accepted, you take on a Lars Von Trier film and that's it.?Tinker Tailor I thought had every possibility of succeeding on the level it was intended, absolutely had it, right from the very beginning.
How did you get involved in the film?
Cameron Spurr: Well there was a call that went to a sports place, and then my mum thought ok let's try this out, so I went to one audition and then two weeks later I got a call back. There were about three or four other boys there, when we got to the airport my mum got the call say we had got the part.
