Winding Refn Lively

Okay, this isn't the full short film that will be unspooled at the Venice Film Festival in a few weeks, but it's a good taste of what's to come. Yes, Nicolas Winding Refn has directed an ad for the fragrance Gucci Premiere and yes, it stars Blake Lively.

This 30 second clip is pretty much like any other perfume ad you'll ever see, with Lively looking glamorous and expensive and walking around and whatever. Since they hired Refn for this gig, we hope in the actual short film, he'll get to show off his chops a bit more. In case you're wondering, this was shot at the Sheats Goldstein Residence in Beverly Hills (aka Jackie Treehorn's house from "The Big Lebowski") and no, your ears don't deceive you, that is M83 "Midnight City (Eric Prydz Private Remix)."

The full short will premiere on Saturday, September 1st at 8 PM in Venice. But surely, that can't be all Refn is going to Italy with...can it? Any chance for "Only God Forgives"? Guess we'll find out soon enough. Watch below. [ONTD]
