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.

That's another fantastic trailer, sucks I've to wait until January to watch the film but I can be pretty sure it won't be a disappointment.

Fassbender is the one to beat this year when Oscar season comes... Still thought Hunger was better but Shame is just fan-bloody-tastic...in that Million Dollar Baby or Requiem for a Dream leave you deflated afterwards kind of way:P I love it and hope people will look past the NC-17 and seek out what is just a brilliant, raw and vulnerable film!

By the looks of it and the great buzz that is being generated; I am pretty sure it is going to be a great movie. But is it weird if I feel a little aSHAMEd to go wait in line and watch this at the theatre?

Not at all. I can understand if one feel a bit uncomfortable with the subject the film will dealt, especially watching it in a theatre that'll filled with unknown people sitting one self but that's part of the experience, I myself wouldn't want to miss it for the world.

The topic of sexual addiction is a tough one to film. It looks like this is a realistic, adult approach to a subject matter that can be difficult to watch. I've heard tremendous buzz myself.
