Film Trailers: NYMPHOMANIAC
And, this is definitely "not safe for work" viewing. Lars von Trier's newest, already controversial, upcoming film Nymphomaniac has plenty of interesting buzz and the recent trailer is full of eroticism and teases at hardcore sex to say the least. The film stars von Trier's newest muse Charlotte Gainsbourg as a self-diagnosed nymphomaniac and the film recounts her erotic journey from youth to being in her fifties. There was recently released posters for each actor in the film with their evident "O" face, which you can check out here. Anything that comes from the Danish madman of film will always be highly intriguing and polarizing. The trailer is highly sexual and breathtakingly arty. Von Trier's films always have an amazing, almost dreamlike quality and look to them, and are seriously intense and test the audience to the max. There is supposedly a five and a half hour cut of this film and it will hopefully play at next years Cannes Film Festival if the fest allows von Trier back to the south of France after his Nazi fiasco from 2011. That is Lars von Trier for you. I doubt it will play, but you never know. The cast also includes Stellan Skarsgård, Willem Dafoe, Stacy Martin, Shia LaBeouf, Uma Thurman, Jamie Bell, Christian Slater, Mia Goth, Connie Nielsen and Udo Kier. Nice cast. The film still does not have a release date in the states, but opens on Christmas Day in Denmark. Joyous viewing on the Christian holiday. Ha ha! There will probably be a shorter cut, but I would be interested in a 5 1/2 hour cut no matte what. Here is the trailer. Enjoy. It is explicit, so do not enjoy it too much...
