Helter Skelter trailer has no relation to that one song

9:00 AM on 05.15.2012

Obviously the movie Helter Skelter by Mika Ninagawa is based on the manga Helter Skelter by Kyoko Okazaki. It has nothing to do with the song Helter Skelter by that one popular band -- you know the one. But as far as I'm concerned, any movie that shares the name of a song should have that song in the movie, no matter how much it doesn't fit the tone they're going for. And since the song is not in the trailer, I'm going to assume it's not in the movie, because these days all the good parts of the movie are in the trailer.

Helter Skelter -- the movie, not the song -- tells the story of Ririko (Erika Sawajiri), the hottest star in Japan. She reached the pinnacle of the entertainment industry by getting extensive plastic surgery all over her body. However, her body begins deteriorating, and soon she is causing incidents and on the verge of a mental breakdown.

I can't comment on the movie itself, which premieres in Japan on July 5 with a public release on July 14. But damn, that is a very nice looking trailer! I'm loving the art design, which looks almost surreal enough to be fantasy.
