First Teaser Poster for 'Nymphomaniac' Leaves Plenty to Imagination

Forget about love. Just sex. Lots of it. While we patiently wait for a trailer or footage or any actual release details for Lars von Trier's already-controversial new film Nymphomaniac, the first teaser poster has made an appearance via IMPAwards. The teaser features nothing but simple black text and two humongous parentheses which, inspired by internet ASCII art, together form a shape that looks a lot like something else. So ASCII art can sell movies nowadays? Why not. At least they're doing something unique here and making us and our own (vivid) imaginations fill in the blank, which is why this art works so well. Take a look below!

Here's the first teaser poster for Lars von Trier's new film Nymphomaniac starring Charlotte Gainsbourg.

Nymphomaniac Teaser Poster

We already know von Trier is planning to split this Nymphomaniac epic sexual adventure into two films, shooting a "softer and more explicit version of each." French-English actress Charlotte Gainsbourg, who appeared explicitly in von Trier's Antichrist a few years ago, will play Joe, as the story is about her "hidden erotic desires" and spans her life story from a young age to age 50. Beyond Gainsbourg, the cast includes Stellan Skarsgard, likely Willem Dafoe, Jamie Bell and Uma Thurman in there, and Shia LaBeouf, too. Shooting finished last year, and Lars von Trier is currently editing and finalizing the film. Nymphomaniac will not be playing in Cannes and does not have an official premiere or release date set yet - so stay tuned.

    Hmm... did they stop spelling it Nymph()maniac in the marketing? Could also use an * in there, but Von Trier might not know of all the parts;)
