Climax trailer! Watch the first teaser promo for Gaspar Noé’s latest.
Climax played to packed audiences in the Director’s Fortnight strand on the Croisette on Sunday (of all days), most of the festival-goers lapping up the Irreversible and Enter The Void director’s latest, a film revolving around a group of dancers whose drinks are spiked with LSD after completing a final dance rehearsal.

The film is absolutely bat-shit crazy, or review saying that the film is a ‘truly unique, very memorable cinema experience. It is sure to shock, repulse, and be a major talking point – just like all of this filmmaker’s other films, really. If those were up you street, then this won’t disappoint. If they offended you, then don’t be surprised to feel the same about the new one. Either way, you can’t argue that he’s more than delivered with this offering – an acid-fuelled, relentless shocker that’ll stay lodged in your brain days after experiencing it. Quite a trip indeed.’
We’ve got the Climax trailer for your viewing pleasure below. The film hasn’t got distribution yet, but expect that to change following its positive reception here in Cannes.
Here’s the official synopsis followed by the provocative festival poster and of course, the Climax trailer.
In the mid 90’s, 20 urban dancers join together for a three-day rehearsal in a closed-down boarding school located at the heart of a forest to share one last dance. They then make one last party around a large sangria bowl. Quickly, the atmosphere becomes charged and a strange madness will seize them the whole night. If it seems obvious to them that they have been drugged, they neither know by who nor why. And it’s soon impossible for them to resist to their neurosises and psychoses, numbed by the hypnotic and the increasing electric rhythm of the music. While some feel in paradise, most of them plunge into hell.
