Following the reveal of its complicated release plans yesterday, IFC Films has premiered the trailer for Lars von Trier’s controversial serial killer film “The House That Jack Built” starring Matt Dillon, Bruno Ganz, Uma Thurman, and Riley Keough.
Set in 1970s USA, the story follows the highly intelligent Jack (Dillon) through five key incidents – the murders that define Jack’s development as a serial killer – which we experience from his point of view. He views each murder as an artwork in itself, even though his dysfunction gives him problems in the outside world.
The director’s cut is scoring a special one-night-only theatrical screening on November 28th, before releasing an R-rated cut in theaters and on rental VOD on December 14th. In addition, the director’s cut will be available for purchase only on Digital HD from December 14th.
