Noted for the unexpected in his films, director Lars von Trier ("Dogville") scores again on that count as an interplanetary crisis puts Earth on a collision course.

The threat parallels the internal crisis a young bride (Kirsten Dunst, who was named best actress at the Cannes Film Festival for the movie) experiences on her wedding day. Alexander Skarsgard ("True Blood"), Kiefer Sutherland and Charlotte Gainsbourg also star. DVD extras: theatrical trailers; "making-of" documentaries. *** (R: AS, N, P) (Also on Blu-ray)
