A red band trailer for director Alex de la Iglesia’s (The Oxford Murders) The Last Circus has landed online and it is borderline insane. The film begins in 1937 during the Spanish Civil War and centers on a circus clown who joins a militia and begins dispatching people with max prejudice. From there, the pic moves ahead to 1973 and begins following a “twisted love triangle” involving both Sad Clown and Happy Clown. There really isn’t a lot else to be said about the cut except that it succeeds in peaking my interest in the film (a fact that makes me really question the type of things I’m interested in).
Unless you’re already afraid of clowns (in which case, I apologize for the dual-wielding one pictured above), I suggest you watch the restricted trailer after the jump. Magnolia is releasing The Last Circus, starring Carlos Areces, Antonio de la Torre, and Carolina Bang, to select theaters on August 12th.
