Young love is tough enough as it is, but toss supernatural elements and a lesbian romance in the mix, and you get Bradley Rust Gray's "Jack And Diane." A werewolf story that stands apart, the film is headed to theaters and we've got a new clip from the picture to give you a taste of what's to come.

Juno Temple is very much the woman of the moment. Last weekend, she cropped up in "The Dark Knight Rises" -- somewhat wasted, inarguably, but still there -- and this weekend, she gives one of the most electric performances of the year in William Friedkin's "Killer Joe." And, as if to hammer home how much in the Zeitgeist the young British actress is right now, a trailer for her next film just arrived, in the shape of a promo from Magnolia Pictures for "Jack And Diane."

A lesbian werewolf story featuring animated sequences by the legendary Brothers Quay and starring Juno Temple, Riley Keough and pop superstar Kylie Minogue? The ingredients are there for something either truly special or utterly disastrous. And while our review from the Tribeca Film Festival leans toward the latter, there's no doubt that the subject matter and cast should earn "Jack and Diane" some attention when it rolls out.

The heart of "Jack and Diane," the third film from Bradley Rust Gray, isn't about it being a monster movie. It's about looking at a love story and seeing that there's qualities that Gray brings to this relationship that perfectly reflect first love: bright and flighty Diane (Juno Temple) is visiting her aunt in New York and finds herself falling for Jack (Riley Keough), a rougher and more butch girl working in a skate shop. As their first night culminates in a kiss, Diane's feelings overtake her body, turning her into a snarling, grotesque beast with hair and wires snaking around her organs. Whether Diane's hiding a deadly fact about herself, or if it's just Gray playing with metaphor as their relationship evolves over a week, is entirely up to the audience.

With summer nearly upon us, studios are heavily pushing their upcoming genre fare with gaudy orange/blue-gradient posters, but among the slew of studio material trying their hardest to stand out, the names Kilmer and Korine together seem the most exciting.

Tribeca Review: 'Jack And Diane' An Unsatisfying & Empty Relationship Movie

Though the descriptor "werewolf-lesbian-psycho-drama" piqued immense interest when word first got out, Bradley Rust Gray's "Jack And Diane" doesn't follow through on its weirdo/intriguing premise. Little work is done from the get-go to make the emotional connection between the titular characters feel believable (a huge error considering the movie's core is based around this relationship), and without that rational groundwork, the film feels forced and hollow for most of its duration.

This year's Tribeca Film Festival carries one of its strongest line-ups in years. In addition to films from Cannes, Venice, Toronto, Sundance and Berlin circuit, there's also a wealth of U.S. premieres or lesser-known festival movies in the line-up that look just as promising this time around; after a relatively weak SXSW, it looks like the East Coast is getting some of the good stuff.

If you were paying attention a couple of hours ago, you'll know that the Tribeca Film Festival has announced its preliminary slate beyond the opening night film, "The Five-Year Engagement." And it's a pretty good one so far, with highlights including "Jack And Diane," Bradley Rust Gray's long-awaited follow-up to the 2009's "The Exploding Girl," the Mexico-set drama "The Girl," starring Abbie Cornish, and much more.

SXSW kicks off later this week, but once you're done slurping the BBQ sauce off your fingers, pack your backs and head north to Manhattan, as the Tribeca Film Festival is gearing up to unspool in April. To whet cinephile appetites, organizers have dropped the lineup for the World Narrative Feature Competition, World Documentary Feature Competition and Viewpoints categories, and there are plenty of titles to take note of.
