For a movie titled Nymphomaniac, this first official image is really underwhelming. If your mind is in the gutter, that is. Von Trier isn’t one to disappoint, however, and it has long since been confirmed that there will be explicit sexual acts depicted throughout the film, so take heart!
The film stars Charlotte Gainsborough (who performed in some very explicit scenes in Von Trier’s Antichrist) who is found by a man (Stellan Skarsgard) after being brutally beaten, and shares her life story with him, which is presumably rife with promiscuous encounters. The film has also roped in more than a few noteworthy actors with Shia LaBeouf, Jamie Bell, Christian Slater, Connie Nielsen, Willem Dafoe and Uma Thurman filling out the cast. There’s nothing written in stone quite yet, but it’s looking like the film could see a May release in Denmark and Sweden, but no one can say when the rest of the world with get to partake in the delicious risque-ness of it all.[Artificial Eye via The Playlist]
