First images from Nicolas Winding Refn's The Neon Demon arrive online

With shooting close to wrapping up in Los Angeles and plenty of interest shown in the film at the Cannes Film Festival, the first images from Nicolas Winding Refn's (Drive) new thriller The Neon Demon have arrived online via Screen International.

Refn's latest trip into the dark heart of culture and humanity finds the likes of Elle Fanning (Super 8), Jena Malone (Sucker Punch), Karl Glusman (Starship Troopers: Invasion), Bella Heathcote (Dark Shadows), Abbey Lee, Christina Hendricks (Drive), Desmond Harrington (Dexter) and Keanu Reeves (John Wick) in the story of aspiring model Jesse (Fanning) moving to the City Of Angels only to find that it hides some very dark terrors. In short, "Her youth and vitality are devoured by a group of beauty-obsessed women that will do anything to take what she has." So pretty much business as usual in LA, then.

Refn is about to kick off post-production on the film, which should be with us in early 2016, especially since Icon Film Distribution brought the rights to the film in the UK. From the looks of the stills alone this could be another stylish entry into Refn's canon.
