There’s a moment early on in The Neon Demon, in which a fantastically icy Abbey Lee tells Elle Fanning’s doe-eyed aspiring model the first thing women notice about other women. Basically it’s: “Who is she f—ing? Could I f— them? How high can she climb? And is it higher than me?" It’s the closest thing to a thesis statement you’ll find in Nicolas Winding Refn’s latest film, a stylishly surreal effort that’s equal parts deranged fairy tale and devious satire, where all that glitters is ultimately cold.

The first trailer for Nicolas Winding Refn’s The Neon Demon debuted a few days ago, but if you've been itching to see more footage from the Drive director's avant garde horror flick, there's good news for you. This UK red band trailer is a little shorter, but it does offer brief glimpses of additional scenes, as well as a quick cameo from Keanu Reeves — who very clearly does not like whatever it is that he sees.

One of our most anticipated films of the year is The Neon Demon, Nicolas Winding Refn’s long-awaited follow-up to Only God Forgives. From the handful of images we’ve seen, the avant garde horror flick definitely appears to be in keeping with Refn’s more recent aesthetic. While we anxiously await word of an official release date, two fantastic posters and a new image of Elle Fanning have debuted online, appropriately maintaining that high-fashion, neon-drenched, foreboding atmosphere.

We came very close to getting a live-action update of The Little Mermaid directed by Sofia Coppola, but our dreams of being part of that world (or at least viewing it) were crushed thanks to good ol’ creative differences. It’s been three years since Coppola’s previous film, The Bling Ring, but our wait for her next project may soon be over as the director is reportedly reuniting with Kirsten Dunst for a remake of Civil War romance The Beguiled, with Nicole Kidman and Elle Fanning set to co-star.

Nicolas Winding Refn’s highly-anticipated follow-up to the divisive Only God Forgives began filming this year in Los Angeles, and while there’s been a considerable amount of interest in The Neon Demon, it’s taken a while for a studio to snatch up the distribution rights. Amazon has stepped forward, adding Refn’s latest to their growing slate of exclusive releases and giving the film a 2016 release date. In addition, we have a new photo from the upcoming film, featured above.

About Ray caused a bit of a stir some months ago when Elle Fanning was cast in the titular role of Ray, a transgender teen boy transitioning from female to male. Many felt as though the film should have cast an actual transgender teen boy instead of Fanning, but now the first trailer has arrived and you can judge Fanning’s abilities for yourself.

This should be great news for fans of both Nicole Kidman and director John Cameron Mitchell: the actress is re-teaming with her Rabbit Hole director for another film, this one based on the Neil Gaiman short story How to Talk to Girls at Parties. So that’s good news for fans of Gaiman, as well.

One of our most anticipated upcoming projects is Nicolas Winding Refn’s The Neon Demon, the director’s follow-up to Drive and Only God Forgives. In keeping with the aesthetic of those films, the first images from his new horror project feature a lovely Elle Fanning doused in neon lighting and dripping with blood. It’s almost too painful to know we probably won’t see this movie until 2016.
