Two More Posters for Lars von Trier's 'Nymphomaniac' as Debut Nears
Let the hype continue. Two more posters have arrived online for Lars von Trier's Nymphomaniac starring Charlotte Gainsbourg as Joe. We've been featuring the teaser clips and other genius marketing art for this so far, and things keep getting better. Another new erotic poster has arrived, and another brings together most of the character posters. Commenting on the existence of a 5 1/2 hour director's cut version, producer Peter Aalbaek Jensen said one does exist "and it contains deeply explicit scenes", but "we signed right from the beginning for a 4 hour version and that’s the one we decided to release in two parts." So that's what we expect to see in theaters. The film will release in Europe starting January, but still no US dates confirmed.
Check back for more updates on Nymphomaniac and as always, catch the latest teaser footage on YouTube.
Forget about love. A self-diagnosed nymphomaniac recounts her erotic experiences to the man who saved her after a beating. 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. Nymphomaniac is written and directed by controversial Danish filmmaker Lars von Trier (Breaking the Waves, Dancer in the Dark, Dogville, Antichrist, Melancholia), who filmed this last year and is preparing a hardcore version for Cannes 2014. The film may be released later in the year in Denmark on December 25th, but we still don't have an official US release date yet. Stay tuned for more.
