Kirsten Dunst Trips Out In The Trippy ‘Woodshock’ Trailer

It’s hard to decide when Kirsten Dunst officially become one of our most interesting actresses. Was it when lightning spewed from her fingertips in “Melancholia”? When she snorted coke and ripped Rebel Wilson’s wedding dress in “Bachelorette”? Maybe it was her naïve Midwestern enlightenment on “Fargo”? 

If you’re not already convinced, the new “Woodshock” trailer should do the trick. Dunst plays a grieving woman fleeing her mangled emotions and paranoia with the help of a trippy cannabinoid drug. “Woodshock” marks the directorial debut of sisters Kate and Laura Mulleavy, friends of Dunst who founded the fashion label Rodarte. 

This is one of two fascinating projects Dunst has coming this year. The first is next month’s “The Beguiled,” her latest collaboration with “Virgin Suicides” and “Marie Antoinette” director Sofia Coppola. In addition to “Woodshock” and “The Beguiled,” Dunst is working on the AMC dark-comedy series “On Becoming a God in Central Florida,” directed by “The Lobster” and “Dogtooth” mastermind Yorgos Lanthimos.

“Woodshock” opens Sept. 15. Watch the trailer above, and see A24’s poster below.
