Glorious Promo Photo for 'Nymphomaniac' Teases December Release

Screw the MPAA! Only for a Lars von Trier film. While the Cannes Film Festival is now underway, Lars von Trier's latest Nymphomaniac wasn't ready in time to play, but that doesn't mean they can't steal some thunder. Our friends at The Film Stage have learned that Nymphomaniac has been scheduled for a release in December in Denmark (it doesn't have a US distributor yet), confirming they're still finishing the film despite rumors it would be released the end of this month. In addition, they found the film's website which contains a rather epic/glorious promo photo of the entire cast, and von Trier (with his mouth duct-taped), standing in lewd poses - all with their clothes on. It reminds me of when Lars got his own character poster.

Here's the image, which comes direct from the Nymphomaniac official website, where it can be seen in full.


Originally, Lars von Trier was 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 likely premiere at the fall festivals (Venice & Toronto) before opening in Denmark on December 25th.

    Isn't Von Trier banned from Cannes or did that get lifted?
    • He was banned, but that doesn't mean his films are banned. There were rumors/rumblings that his film would play here (even though he wouldn't show up) but it wasn't finished in time to submit. Edit: Thierry Fremaux also sort of forgave him and lifted the ban this year. See this update:
      • Hes actually welcome back any time now, apparently ban was only for 1 year.

    Another Startling Art from the MASTER Sometimes body of cinema needs a SHOCK to make the heart pounding again , Lar's Works always do it For me Lars von Trier is more "mature & dark" side of Quentin Tarantino. Both don't stick to the rules , they think rules must exist to be broken ......... me too
