Alexander Skarsgard: 'Melancholia' NYC Premiere!

Alexander Skarsgard and Kirsten Dunst attend the premiere of Melancholia on Monday (October 3) at Lincoln Center’s Alice Tully Hall in NYC.

The 29-year-old actress wore a Chloe dress and Sonia Rykiel shoes for the event, which was held during the 49th annual New York Film Festival, while Alex suited up in YSL.

Guests, who also included Alex and Kirsten‘s co-star Charlotte Gainsbourg, were seen sipping Apothic Red wine.

The cast then headed over to the DeLeon Tequila-sponsored after party held at the Stone Rose Lounge, where Alex chatted up 30 Rock‘s Jack McBrayer. (They hung out backstage when Alec Baldwin hosted the Saturday Night Live season premiere on September 24.)

    Damn!!!! Does he ever not look good?!? Kiki looking good as well
    I hope this movie is released around here!

  • Tina

    Alex and Kirsten look so good together! His hair is getting longer. I hope he doesn’t have to cut it for The East next month so he can grow it out.

  • PurpleSamantha

    No one looks particularly happy to be there.

  • lauren

    love charlotte style, alex looks hot, kirsten always chic, agree with purplesamantha

  • Kelly

    Alex sure wears a suit well!

  • Lilla

    Holy…something. Alex looks so hot. Kiki looks amazing. I really can’t wait to see this movie :)

  • Jen

    Sigh…I get spoiled with daily Alex in aug/sept only to have it taken away. So cruel JJ. So cruel.

    Anyway…Hello yummy!!!! Love it when he suits up!

  • Iko

    Seems like Alex doesn’t mind posing on the red carpet with these co-stars. He looks great with Kiki! I’m sure Melancholia will make more than the $9.7M Straw Dogs before it was pulled from major theaters.

  • bedds

    Good lord. This man can REALLY wear a suit. YUM!

  • Kelly

    @ Iko – Melancholia is a small art house film. It will only have a limited release. As such it is not expected to make a lot of money.

  • mforman

    It just amazes me how absolutely gorgeous he looks and continues to look.
    Whenever I see him in a suit, I feel like he is wearing it just for me.
    Okay, calm down you 2 creature fans it is a joke, but boy can that man pull off a suit.
    I am so happy so see what is happening to him finally, if any actor deserves all this good, boy oh boy it is him.
    He is just sooo talented and what amazes me even more is that he just keeps getting better.

  • not me

    What is wrong with this man? He seems sick. Pale and gaunt…something is not right.

  • bleecker street

    Gorgeous film. May not be for everyone, but it was amazing IMO. Superbly cast, flawlessly performed, and heartbreakingly real despite a slightly surreal landscape. And that guy up there is one talented, beautiful man.

  • danielik25

    I love him and Kiki together. Melancholia is great and interesting film. And the best is that Alex has four movies for next year already and 5. season of Tb of course. More Alex. more happiness for women!

  • hobie83

    Ahhh, he has the most amazing, interesting eyes. They look ethereal. And Kirsten looks great too.

  • Iko


    Small art house movie or not I think it will do better than Straw Dogs that had a wide release but only made $9.7M according to Box Office Mojo which stopped tracking it after that. I would also pay for the Melancholia dvd as I’m sure many others will.

  • PurpleSamantha

    Seriously, I got four thumbs down?? Am I the only one who thinks they all look like they want to get it over with? They all look wonderful individually, just not like they’re having a great time.

  • http://Jdmt Slig o lambert ^_______^cute

    You can do hahahahah

  • Canuck

    @lauren: You’re right in that they all look a little stressed. And Gainsbourg has odd body language going on in the pix, both with Alex and Kiki.

    Is his hair looking a bit like the the colour isn’t coming out completely after a wash to anyone else?

  • http://Jdmt Slig o lambert ^_______^cute

    Alexander you can do now

  • http://Jdmt Slig o lambert ^_______^cute

  • ka simply amazimg

  • Iko

    Here are pictures looking very happy here. I don’t know why JJ doesn’t post those.

  • PurpleSamantha

    Alex does look happier than Kiki and Charlotte.

  • ladybug

    @Iko: Box Office didn’t stop tracking it, it’s on this weekend’s list.
    Canuck, it does look like the rinse isn’t completely washing out. Could also be the lighting. I think that he looks tired, not stressed.

  • Iko


    It wasn’t there Monday morning or else I would have given the $10M figure. This is the now defunct link I read off another forum which did not have it listed.…/?yr=2011&wknd=39&p=.htm

    Btw, why aren’t they showing its rank?

  • Canuck

    @ladybug: Could be tired too. None of them seem to have smiling eyes though. Possibly they were being asked questions about LVT’s comments again?

  • LOLiipop

    KIrsten & Alexander are so cute. I’m so excited to see melancholia in 4 days :)

  • Buttercup

    ew, Alex looks like a corpse here

  • Buttercup

    btw Charlotte is stunning!

  • http://da slig o lambert ^______^cute

    yes he want go beathroom

  • ladybug

    @Iko: Looks like they stop ranking after #15 (apparently they want us to count or something!)
    Kenneth the Page looks happy to see him:

  • LaToya

    He looks very handsome, but he does look tired, poor thing. I hope he gets to relax at some point, but it doesn’t seem likely. That suit looks great btw! Now I know what the YSL fitting was for.

  • sweetness

    he’s sooo YUMMY!

  • Camille

    He looks great in that suit, but the colour of the shirt is washing him out a bit. I think that’s why he looks a bit more tired here, just the shirt washing him out.

    Also, I think it’s mostly the lighting that is making his hair darker, because there are some pics where it’s more blonde.

  • ladybug

    @Camille: Yeah, the shirt isn’t doing much for him. He should probably stay away from the tan/sand/beige tones.

  • That’s me


    ITA. The shirt is awful colour and it makes him look pale as a vampire ha ha ha and that shade of grey is too light for him. It should be dark gray or blue gray. And poor thing looks definetly tired. I would like to hug him.
    Melancholia was indeed amazing. Hard to forget. I saw it like month ago and still thinking of it. Alex was only in the first half of film but he was great, so gentle and kind man and totally different from Eric of True Blood or Charie of Straw Dogs. You gotta love him. Also Kirstin made her best performance of her career so far. She was phenomenal and really believable as was all the other actors too.

  • Funny thing :D

    Anyone noticed the lack of negative comments of the certain haters on this thread? Obviously they are too busy voting Stephen Moyer and Joe Manganiello at Scream Awards! Don’t forget to vote for Alex as the best horror actor 2011!

  • Camille

    @That’s me:
    Well, I don’t think it’s grey because he actually usually looks good in grey. It’s more of a sandy beige colour to me. Which totally washes his skin tone out. It’s funny, it’s almost the exact same colour as his hair. LOL! I want to see Melancholia, but they won’t bring it here. I’d have to drive to the next city to see it.

    I agree, it’s just too much blonde/beige. It’s monotone. I don’t think it looks good unless you have a tan if you’re blonde.

  • seeshay

    I kind of like the tan shirt with the suit, nice change, a little different. Agree his hair looks darker like it is keeping some of the Disconnect color?? I saw comments on another site from someone who was there that he looked more tan and the suit looked more teal in color in person. So maybe the flash changes the colors a bit? Anyway, IMO he looks great and I love it that the movie is getting favorable reviews. I think he is so proud of this one, he’ll be happy it is being well received.

  • seeshay

    @Funny thing :D: thanks for the reminder and link. Will go vote. Also — forgot to say how nice both the women look. Very different looks but like C’s fancy pants and K’s lovely classic dress.

  • Canuck

    @Camille: @ladybug: @That’s me: I’m glad it’s not just me who isn’t loving that shirt. The blue suit is fabulous, the brown shirt with it is not so happy.

  • Debbie

    @That’s me:
    The film is indeed hard to forget; seeing even the crescent moon hanging in the sky freaked me out a little after seeing Melancholia. Bits of the film keep coming back to me, mainly how stunning Kirsten Dunst is; she has the most amazing skin, and also how the end of the world looked and sounded. I loved the colour palate too; all subdued and earth tones.
    I’m half tempted to go back to the cinema to watch it again, no matter how good the home blu-ray surround sound is it’ll never match the big screen and the sound system that shook the floor of the cinema in the bits that mattered. Odd that this is the premiere when we’ve already got it in the UK – usually we’re months behind you!
    Btw; I’m not a fan on the tan. Someone needs to remind Skars that green is his best colour. ;)

  • LaToya

    @Funny thing :D: Shhh… don’t mention them or they may come back.

    @Debbie: I like him better in blue, matches and brings out his eyes, but then again green brings them out also.

    I actually like the shirt, idk. I don’t think it looks so bad. I think the combination of the orange in the background and the shirt is what is making his hair look darker.

  • Molly

    “he looks so good in a suit”
    …works for every male celebrity, LOL

  • Camille

    @Canuck: @Debbie:
    I generally think blonde people shouldn’t wear beige tones, because it’s just too much beige. Skin, hair, outfit etc. He needs some colour to give him some pop.

  • Macy

    Ugh, I’m trying to watch the crappy quality upload of SD on youtube and I just can’t. She ruins it for me. I just cringe everytime she opens her damn mouth. I’m not sure if I’ll be able to watch the movie because she annoys me so damn much.

  • Debbie

    As an aside; Melancholia is in the UK top 15 despite being a limited release and only shown from Sunday onwards; my mate in the north can’t find a cinema that shows it until the end of the month.
