Lars Von Trier's Trump-inspired horror sparks mass walkout at Cannes

Matt Dillon Is a Full On Psycho in the Trailer for Lars Von Trier's The House That Jack Built

"The House that Jack Built" stars Matt Dillon as Jack and follows his life over 12 years as he develops into a highly intelligent serial killer.

Watch the official trailer below.

Cure for the common cold? Incredible molecule shows real promise
This molecule will also work against the viruses related to the common cold (polio, foot, and mouth disease viruses). The Imperial College researchers reported that IMP-1088 blocked the common cold without affecting healthy cells.

Seven years ago, Lars Von Trier was banned from the Cannes Film Festival for making provocative jokes about Adolf Hitler.

Variety's Ramin Setoodeh said that he'd never seen anything like this at a film festival. According to an interview with the director, The House That Jack Built is supposed to draw parallels to the current political situation in the United States - particularly the rise of the new Republican president. Time and again we've heard about movies that have left audience members fainting in the aisles but have actually turned out to be considerably tamer than first believed. The film looks visually inventive, and I like the idea of Matt Dillon having a big role to sink his teeth into. The film also stars Uma Thurman, Jeremy Davies, Bruno Ganz, and Riley Keough.

US Defence attache involved in crash leaves Pakistan
The incident killed a youth, identified as 22-year-old Ateeq Baig, while the pillion rider received serious injuries. Police have also handed over all records related to Colonel Hall to United States officials.

I feel a bit ambivalent about this film. However, as this is Ol' Papa Genitalia Hater Von Trier we're talking about, The House That Jack Built could be just as disgusting as they suggest - if they walked out early on, guess how much worse it gets? Plus, Dillon's flowery narration induced some slight eye-rolling.

While acknowledging that the film was controversial, the Danish press and pundits put a more positive spin on the evening's events. How von Trier's perceived in reality is at the very heart of von Trier's fiction, and thus the prospect of his serial-killer movie was more or less written in stone from the moment it was announced. The House That Jack Built premieres at Cannes today (May 14), so we'll likely hear how the film is sooner rather than later.

Melania Trump in hospital after kidney surgery
Taking to Twitter he wrote: "Heading over to Walter Reed Medical Center to see our great First Lady, Melania". He told the audience that she is "on our hearts" and "we're praying for her speedy and full recovery".

The House That Jack Built will premiere at Cannes and awaits USA distribution. He views each murder as an artwork in itself, even though his dysfunction gives him problems in the outside world. The goal is the ultimate artwork: A collection of all his killings manifested in a House that he builds. Let us know what you think.
