Danish director Nicolas Winding Refn this year marks his third time in the Cannes competition with The Neon Demon screening tomorrow. The La-set horror film stars Elle Fanning and Abbey Lee in Refn's first female-driven effort.

Samuel Brace casts his eye over the second half of 2016 with four movies to look out for…
Here we are guys. We are nearly halfway through 2016, a year that has been pretty tepid on the cinematic front. We’ve had some absolute stinkers, some surprising hits and a few excellent hangovers from last year’s awards season. But life is about looking forward, and there are some fascinating films/movies on the way, features that are — at the very least — worth keeping an eye on, and at the most, are wonderful excuses to jump up and down with perpetual excitement. But don’t worry, gang, I’m not going to tell you what to care about, just what to be aware of. Just a careful nudge in the direction of films that won’t necessarily be world beaters (some will) but that could be pertinent to cinematic conversation in 2016’s latter half. »

Which Nicolas Winding Refn are we going to get with "The Neon Demon"? The pop genre filmmaker of "Drive" and "Bronson" or the divisive visionary behind fare like "Valhalla Rising" or "Only God Forgives"? We'll find out at the Cannes Film Festival next month, but as always, "The Neon Demon" looks to be provocative. Read More: New Images For Nicolas Winding Refn's 'The Neon Demon' Starring Elle Fanning Following the debut trailer for the film yesterday, a new U.K. teaser has dropped, featuring some new, Nsfw moments. Elle Fanning, Jena Malone, Karl Glusman, Bella Heathcote, Abbey Lee, Desmond Harrington, Christina Hendricks and Keanu Reeves, all star in the movie that follows Jesse, an aspiring model who moves to Los Angeles, where her youth and vitality are devoured by a group of beauty-obsessed women who will take any means necessary to get what she has.

It's all modelling, murkiness and possibly murder in the new film from Nicolas Winding Refn. Elle Fanning stars as a young woman swept into a hallucinatory hinterland of glamour, nightclubs and intense competition. There's a hint of Darren Aronofsky's Black Swan to The Neon Demon's first trailer, though that may just be our interpretation of what is sure to be a far more bizarre and unpredictable film than even this promo suggests.
As such films as Valhalla Rising and Only God Forgives proved, Refn's films aree sumptuous-looking but also wayward and highly unpredictable. The Neon Demon will screen at Cannes in May, so we should hear more about a UK release over the next few weeks or so.
More as we get it.

“The Neon Demon” centers on an aspiring model who moves to Los Angeles, where her youth and vitality are devoured by a group of beauty-obsessed women who will go to any lengths to get what she has.
Refn won the director prize at Cannes in 2011 with Ryan Gosling starrer “Drive,” which has achieved a near-cult status and became a major critical success. Refn’s past credits also include “Only God Forgives,” “Pusher” and “Valhalla Rising.”

Nicolas Winding Refn gained cult status with "Bronson" and "Valhalla Rising," made inroads into the mainstream with "Drive," and took a sideways turn with the divisive "Only God Forgives." So it'll be interesting to see how his upcoming "The Neon Demon" will be received. And we're about to find out. Read More: Cannes Review: 'Only God Forgives' Stretches Refn's Neon-Noir Style Over Too Little Oedipal, Amoral Substance Starring Elle Fanning, Jena Malone, Karl Glusman, Bella Heathcote, Abbey Lee, Desmond Harrington, Christina Hendricks and Keanu Reeves, the movie follows Jesse, an aspiring model who moves to Los Angeles, only to encounter a group of beauty-obsessed women who will take any means necessary to get what she has. It's a Countess Bathory-inspired story horror flick, one that Refn says is about "vicious beauty.” Watch the first trailer below. "The »

For quite a while now, Nicolas Winding Refn has been talking about "The Avenging Silence," a Tokyo-set movie that would feature a protagonist not unlike the ones played by Mads Mikkelsen in "Valhalla Rising" and Ryan Gosling in "Drive" — a stoic, silent, singularly driven character. And while he has been tight-lipped about any plot details, last summer he revealed that the script was in the works, and added, "I would love to do like a spy movie, something like that." So bear in that mind with this latest development.
