He helped save (part of) The Glades and ultimately drove his point home with the Dark Archer, but as Arrow‘s Season 1 finale drew to a close, Oliver Queen chalked up a big one in the loss column — the life of his longtime best friend Tommy Merlyn.

Lars Von Trier has become the master of shocking cinema over the last few years with both Antichrist and Melancholia stirring up audiences. Then he announced that his latest movie, Nymphomaniac, would feature hardcore sex scenes starring popular actors like Shia Labeouf, Willem Dafoe, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Christian Slater, and Uma Thurman. But, with the film not ready in time for the Cannes Film Festival, many have been left wondering what the hold up is. Von Trier is actually delayed »

The upcoming two-part erotic film is to feature graphic sex scenes between cast members, producer Louise Vesth told The Hollywood Reporter.
However, the real hardcore scenes will be filmed using body doubles, who will then be combined with the stars' non-explicit acts using digital technology, she explained.
"We shot the actors pretending to have sex and then had the body doubles, who really did have sex, and in post we will digital-impose the two," Vesth said.
"So above the waist it will be the star and below the waist it will be the doubles."
The post-production work on the project is said to be the reason why it was not available to be screened at Cannes this week. »
If you were hoping to see some of your favorite actors going at it for real in Lars Von Trier's Nymphomaniac, I have some disappointing news for you. Producer Louise Vesth tells THR that the two-part feature will digitally blend the stars of the movie with their body doubles. Everything above the waist will be the name actor, and then their body doubles will handle the hardcore sex below. "We shot the actors pretending to have sex and then had the body doubles, who really did have sex, and in post we will digital-impose the two," says Vesth. The producer added that Von Trier is also "using double exposures and imposing words and symbols over the action as part of his storytelling." Hit the jump for more. The film stars Charlotte Gainsbourg, Stellan Skarsgard, Shia Labeouf, Jamie Bell, Connie Nielsen, Christian Slater, Uma Thurman, Willem Dafoe, Jean-Marc Barr, and Udo Kier. »

Rather than having sex live on camera, stars of Danish director's upcoming film were played by stand-ins from the waist down
Charlotte Gainsbourg, Shia Labeouf, Uma Thurman, Stellan Skarsgård and Christian Slater can all breathe a sigh of relief: they will not be required to have live sex on camera for Danish agent provocateur Lars von Trier's much-hyped new film Nymphomaniac.
The salacious drama, which stars Von Trier's regular muse, Gainsbourg, in the lead, has been billed as a vehicle for the film-maker to document the erotic life of a woman from infancy to middle age. It will be released in hardcore and softcore versions, but producer Louise Vesth told the Hollywood Reporter that the former would use digital trickery to portray its famous stars having sex.
"We shot the actors pretending to have sex and then had the body doubles who really did have sex and in post »

The middle of May means two things in television: the end of the network season, and the beginning of network upfronts for the fall. We’ve already covered CBS, NBC, Fox, FX, and The CW, here’s what ABC had to show when they took the stage, and thoughts on each trailer:
Back in the Game
Why are Maggie Lawson and an unshaven, homeless-looking James Caan starring in this? Back in the Game is about a woman (“emotionally damaged” by her father, by her own admission) whose All-Star softball career falls apart after she has a kid (seriously). Cann stars as her father, your cardboard cutter asshole, fitting right into that Kenny Powers archetype that was popular three or four years ago. It’s unfortunate to see the talent involved – the trailer’s a mish mash of disturbing physical humor (throwing baseballs full speed at people’s heads?) and misogynistic »
A few weeks ago, the first teaser poster from Lars Von Trier‘s upcoming erotic epic, Nymphomaniac, arrived. Today, we offer you a new image, a ‘porn-inspired tableau’depicting part of the ensemble cast that includes Charlotte Gainsbourg, Shia Labeouf, Jamie Bell, Uma Thurman, Willem Dafoe, Stellan Skarsgård, Christian Slater and Connie Nielsen. Furthermore, part one of the two-part film from controversy magnet director will debut in Denmark on December 25th, 2013, before it goes global soon after. Additional cast includes Jean-Marc Barr, Caroline Goodall, Kate Ashfield, Saskia Reeves, Hugo Speer, Felicity Gilbert, Michaël Pas, Jesper Christensen, Jens Albinus, Cyron Melville, Shanti Roney, Omar Shargawi, Tania Carlin, »

Innuendo? In your endo! Lars Von Trier’s two-part sexual shenanigan flick, Nymphomaniac, has delivered another glimpse into its world. The arrival of this staged teaser is not unexpected. The launch of the film’s website earlier this month printed the first poster for the flick. It also invited people in a suggestive manner, to return to the site on May 16th. So we did. What Von Trier has posted is an image showcasing the entire cast. In rather compromising positions.
This phallic panorama is quite the racy expose. With all the cast evoking suggestive sexual encounters, Von Trier looks on from the left side – with tape across his mouth. It comes across a little like a sexualised version of Where’s Wally? (or Where’s Waldo? for you Americans.) For adults, obviously. You can certainly wile away a good….minute trying to spot all of the carefully placed tips. »

Samantha Who? co-creator Don Todd has joined ABC’s new drama series Mind Games as executive producer. On the 20th TV-produced show, Todd will assist creator/executive producer Kyle Killen with showrunner duties. Mind Games, which received a midseason order, centers on bothers Clark (Steve Zahn), a former professor who has bipolar disorder, and Ross (Christian Slater) Edwards, a slick con man, who partner in a unique agency committed to solving clients’ problems using the hard science of psychological manipulation. Killen and Todd executive produce with Keith Redman. Todd most recently worked on Hart Of Dixie. »

The ensemble cast of director Lars von Trier's Nymphomaniac are all featured in the latest promo art, which features actors such as Willem Dafoe and Shia Labeouf in several provocative poses. Zentropa Entertainment and Nordisk Film also announced today that the film will have its world premiere in Copenhagen, Denmark this December. Check it out, then read the official press release for more details.
Whether Lars von Trier would return to Cannes with Nymphomaniac has been the subject of speculations ever since the project was announced. Even when the producer publicly announced a timeline that didn't allow for the film to be ready for screening in May, many were still looking for Trier's two-part work on the Official Competition Lineup for Cannes 2013, when it was revealed. Continued speculations are now directed towards the next question: When will Nymphomaniac have its world premiere?

If a picture's worth a thousand words, you might say this one might be worth an orgasm or two. The first still from Lars von Trier's latest big-screen provocation, Nymphomaniac, is out and features Shia Labeouf lying prostrate and shirtless on the ground between the legs of a sexy brunette. The tableau image, which would probably feel right at home at a modern art museum, also features the rest of the ensemble cast. Charlotte Gainsbourg, who plays the sex-crazed character of the title, sits in a chair, legs splayed before a kneeling Christian Slater; Willem Dafoe stands over a beautiful blonde who's cleaning a revealing crotch stain; while Uma Thurman looks on, showing a hint of leg and Udo Kier »
A new promo image for director Lars von Trier’s very curious new film Nymphomaniac has been released. The drama picked up considerable attention last year when we learned that the film’s actors will be performing unsimulated sex acts in the pic, which stars Charlotte Gainsbourgh as a self-diagnosed nymphomaniac who recounts her life story to Seligman (Stellan Skarsgard), an old, charming bachelor who finds Gainsbourhough's character beaten up in an alley. This promo image highlights the film’s cast—which includes Willem Dafoe, Shia Labeouf, Uma Thurman, and Christian Slater—as they’re shown in various suggestive positions. Von Trier is currently editing Part Two of the film, but Nymphomaniac is slated to debut on December 25th in Denmark, with a rollout in other territories (including the U.S.) to follow via Magnolia Pictures. Hit the jump to check out the image. Via THR. »

Though it could be the sleaziest photoshoot for BBC drama ever, the picture lurking below is actually the first full cast shot of Lars von Trier’s new controversy-baiter Nymphomaniac. He might not be maddening the Cannes officials this year with his outspoken presence, but that doesn’t stop Von Trier from grabbing headlines and eyeballs with his work.Chronicling the erotic journey of self-diagnosed nymphomaniac Joe (Charlotte Gainsbourg) from birth until the age of 50, the movie will jump around in time and cover a variety of characters. If you peer at the larger version of the picure (you can see it enlarged further on the film’s site) you’ll see von Trier with a camera (and tape over his mouth - probably wise), Stacy Martin, Shia Labeouf, Jamie Bell, Uma Thurman, Udo Kier, Sophie Kennedy Clark, Willem Dafoe, Stellan Skarsgard, Mia Goth, Christian Slater, Gainsbourg, Nicolas Bros and Connie Nielsen. »
The photo features a shirtless Shia Labeouf, Willem Dafoe with a suspicious trouser stain, Christian Slater about to wash Charlotte Gainsbourg's lady parts, Stellan Skarsgard getting some foot action, Udo Kier copping an eyeful of Uma Thurman, and Jamie Bell on the sidelines with some paper towels.
von Trier is in the midst of a major post-production phase with editing having only begun on the second feature.

The Dogme 95 veteran is no stranger to controversy, but we won’t go into his wacky adventures with Hitler and female castration, or his seeming contempt for his lady actors. Instead, let’s have a peek at his tongue in cheek (and presumably elsewhere) promotional image, which is less Melancholia and more Carry On Matron. Phallic fruit, riding crops, ice cream breasts, barrels of lubricant, women’s pants and more ejaculation symbolism than you can shake a big fat cock at. The director himself appears with duct tape on his mouth, filming the whole scenario on his camera phone. He puts the B into subtle, but that’s our Lars!

Lars von Trier, the notoriously outspoken filmmaker who got himself temporarily banned from the Cannes Film Festival for comments he made about Nazis (oh Lars!), has a two-part sex epic coming out later this year called "Nymphomaniac." In a press release, er, released this morning (which clearly isn't connected to Cannes going on right now), it was announced that the two films would premiere in Copenhagen in December, along with the first official photo of the films' cast. Thankfully they aren't involved in some huge gang bang, but rather posed artfully, like a super perverse Gap ad.
Amongst the actors you can spot in the tableau are Shia Labeaouf (underneath that tiny table on the left, Uma Thurman (is that her in the middle?), Udo Kier (looking up Uma's dress), Willem Dafoe (spilling water on his crotch in the middle — wait what?), Stellan Skarsgard (looking real drunk on the couch), Charlotte Gainsbourg (legs spread, »

Congrats to Benedict Cumberbatch, who plays Commander John Harrison in today’s new release Star Trek Into Darkness, for waking me out of cryosleep and forcing me to remember how hot a good movie villain can be. Star Trek Into Darkness is shaping up to be a killer sequel to J.J. Abrams‘ unbeatable 2009 original, and in honor of Cumberbatch’s sinister, dead sexy allure, we’re counting up the 10 hottest villains ever!
Tom Hiddleston is a jovial and cool-seeming guy in interviews, but in Thor, the thespian’s unflinching intensity and sheer weirdness make for an unusual, cartoonish, but sexy villain. If Loki is a trickster, the greatest trick he ever pulled was challenging Chris Hemsworth’s sexiness and succeeding.
Nothing makes a villain hotter than sardonic one-liners, and Christian Slater spouted them without hesitation as J.D. »

Cannes is underway, and it's a quieter place without Lars Von Trier there. Despite guesses from some, the Danish auteur isn't on the Croisette with his latest, "Nymphomaniac," but it's not because of the outrage he caused in 2010 with his comments about Hitler, but instead because the sex-laced two-part epic simply isn't ready. Still, there is a presence of some kind, as the films' backers have used the festival to unveil an image that shows the film's starry cast in various suggestive positions. The tableaux includes Von Trier himself (tape over his mouth, camera in hand) looking over much of his cast, including Charlotte Gainsbourg in the title role, Stacey Martin as her younger self, Stellan Skarsgard, Jamie Bell, Christian Slater, Willem Dafoe, Uma Thurman, Connie Nielsen and Udo Kier (nowhere to be seen: Shia Labeouf). There's a certain amount of fun to be had in finding the not-exactly-hidden phallic images, »
