Second Full US Trailer for Steve McQueen's 'Shame' with Fassbender
"New York, New York. If I can make it there…" Fox Searchlight recently unveiled via Apple a fantastic new trailer for Steve McQueen's NC-17 drama Shame, starring the incredibly talented Michael Fassbender, who was recently named GQ's Breakout Man of the Year. If you still need any convincing to see Shame, this may finally be the trailer that'll put you over the edge, as it's set entirely to Carey Mulligan's haunting but beautiful lounge rendition of Frank Sinatra's "New York, New York." This is still one of my favorite films of the year and I can't speak for it enough, it's truly an exquisite, brilliant character study. Take a peek below!

Shame is directed by Steve McQueen, who also wrote the script with Abi Morgan. The controversial and sexual drama stars Michael Fassbender as a 30-something living in New York City who can't control his sex life and sexual desire, and things get thrown out of whack when his "fragile" sister, played by Carey Mulligan, moves into his apartment. Fox Searchlight says, "Steve McQueen's courageous exploration of modern life's extremes is breathtaking. He has crafted an extraordinary film that probes some of the deepest and darkest issues ever portrayed on screen." Fox Searchlight will bring Shame to theaters December 2nd.
