Enter the Void international trailer debut

The international trailer for Gaspar Noe‘s controversial new film Enter The Void has debuted online.

The film first made waves when Noe premiered a rough-cut of the picture at Cannes back in 2009. Although it didn’t set off the same flurry of controversy as his last picture Irreversible, Enter the Void certainly divided the critics (see a small sample of the argument here).

Check out the official plot synopsis:

Oscar and his sister Linda, recent arrivals in Tokyo. Oscar is a small time drug dealer, and Linda works as a nightclub stripper. One night, Oscar is caught up in a police bust and shot. As he lies dying, his spirit, faithful to the promise he made his sister – that he would never abandon her – refuses to abandon the world of the living. His spirit wanders through the city, his visions growing evermore distorted, evermore nightmarish. Past, present and future merge in a hallucinatory maelstrom.

With that in mind, take a look at the international trailer below (via Twitch, who also have some great reviews of the film from the SXSW festival). It’s somewhat NSFW due to some brief scenes of nudity and sexuality. That being said – it’s a must watch.


Noe’s films are always infuriating, but certainly worth at least one viewing. I personally think Irreversible is a masterpiece – not only as an achievement in technical filmmaking but also as a haunting and powerful relationship drama. I certainly cannot wait to see Enter the Void, and only hope it meets the same lofty heights.

The film will be distributed in the United States by IFC. According to Slashfilm, IFC will release the film to cinemas as well as make it available online on the same day. That date has not yet been set; nor has an Australian release date. What’s the hold up?!

  1. Irreversible is certainly a masterpiece. This trailer looks amazing.One of my favourite scenes of all time is actually from Irreversible. The last sequence with the two waking up is one of the most beautifully photographed and poignant sequences I've ever come across.
