Video: Alexander Skarsgård on Lars von Trier’s MelancholiaAlexander Skarsgård’s Melancholia has been playing on VOD for the last month, and will be playing in New York and L.A., this Friday, November 11, which provides an opportunity to see it the way it’s meant to be seen, on the big screen. And then in other cities starting November 18. You can find out exactly where and when the movie is playing theatrically on the official site.

In the video interview below, you can hear a rather relaxed Skarsgård talking about:


  • How he learned about Melancholia
  • If he’d ever visited his father on a Lars von Trier set
  • How his father urged him to work with von Trier
  • How tightly-scripted the movie was
  • How von Trier works out and films the scenes
  • What filming the star-studded wedding reception was like
  • Whether he got any background on his character
  • How much he knew about the second half of the movie
  • How busy he’s been keeping during the off-season of “True Blood
  • He talks a little about his upcoming movies The East, What Maisie Knew and Disconnect.
  • That crazy Battleship trailer!
