The Last Circus Red Band Trailer has premiered. Alex de la Iglesia‘s The Last Circus / Balada triste de Trompeta (2010) red band trailer stars Carlos ArecesCarolina Bang, Antonio de la Torre, Fran Perea, and Fernando Guillén Cuervo. The Last Circus / Balada triste de Trompeta‘s plot synopsis: “1937 – Spain is in the midst of the brutal Spanish Civil War. A “Happy” circus clown is interrupted mid-performance and forcibly recruited by a militia. Still in his costume, he is handed a machete and led into battle against National soldiers, where he single handedly massacres an entire platoon. Fast forward to 1973, the tail end of the Franco regime. Javier, the son of the clown, dreams of following in his father’s career footsteps, but has seen too much tragedy in his life – he’s simply not funny and is only equipped to play the role of the Sad Clown. He finds work in a circus where he befriends an outlandish cast of characters, but as the Sad Clown he must take the abuse of the brutish Happy Clown Sergio, who humiliates Javier daily in the name of entertainment. It is here that he meets Natalia, a gorgeous acrobat, and abused wife of Sergio. Javier falls deeply in love with Natalia and tries to rescue her from her cruel and violent husband, unleashing Sergio’s jealousy. But Natalia is torn between her affection towards Javier, and her lust for Sergio. With neither man willing to back down, this twisted love triangle evolves into a ferocious battle between Sad Clown and Happy Clown, escalating to unbelievable heights in this absurd, shocking, irreverent and unforgettable film.”

We previously posted The Last CircusBalada triste de Trompeta (2010) movie trailer. The first movie trailer was good, the red trailer is even better. The viewer gets to see the fantasies of Javier, which are beautifully shot: the viewer is given a glimpse into Javier’s head. Of course since this is a red band trailer, there is copious blood splatter and almost nudity.

The Last Circus / Balada triste de Trompeta also stars Sancho Gracia, Santiago Segura, and Raúl Arévalo. Watch The Last Circus movie trailer below and leave your thoughts on it.
