Stephen Dorff has settled comfortably into a groove of straight-to-video action dramas for the last decade, but since 2011 he's been churning them out with reckless abandon in a way that makes it hard to know what you're getting when you pick up one of his headlining acts. Tomorrow You're Gone bucks any conventional story, and for that you have to give it credit, it feels distinctly unique. Unfortunately, save for some decent performances by Dorff and Michelle Monaghan (with a forced and unfortunate southern accent) and a few brief flashes of Willem Dafoe, Tomorrow You're Gone has few surprises that matter surrounded by lots of sloppily written attempts at contemplative conversation and a plot that doesn't really know what it's doing. The film meanders with no sense of direction and consequently loses the audience's interest along the way.

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. »

The official website for Lars Von Trier's upcoming "Nymphomaniac" film contains a promo image featuring the entire cast in sexual positions. Meanwhile, Von Trier is recording everything with his mouth duct-taped. Check out the image below. "Nymphomaniac" stars Shia Labeouf, Stellan Skarsgard, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Jamie Bell, Uma Thurman and Willem Dafoe. Labeouf said that he participated in scenes that required real sex. Apparently there will be a both X-rated and R-rated versions. In the movie, Gainsbourg stars as Joe, a 50-year-old self-diagnosed nymphomaniac looking back at her erotic life. It's set to hit theaters in Denmark on December 25th. A Us release has yet to be announced. Image: (click to enlarge) »
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, »

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, »

Controversy magnet Lars Von Trier has unveiled the first official look at his upcoming film "Nymphomaniac" on the film's website. The photo, a "porn-inspired tableau" to use some of THR's flowery language, features the film's game cast in a bunch of almost-compromising positions, none of which would be out of place on an episode of "Red Shoe Diaries."
For instance, in the lower left of the "Nymphomaniac" photo, there's a shirtless Shia Labeouf acting as handy man while a young woman straddles his body; an overflowing bottle of champagne sits bubbling over to the couple's left. In the middle, Willem Dafoe is shown with a coffee stain on his pants; a young woman kneels before him to clean it off. Stars Charlotte Gainsbourg and Uma Thurman, meanwhile, both appear with their legs spread in different places within the frame. (As previously noted, the film will only feature simulated sex and »

Director Lars von Trier (Antichrist, Melancholia) has revealed that the world premiere for his four-hour epic sex drama Nymphomaniac will be held in Copenhagen, Denmark on December 25th. The film stars Shia Labeouf, Jamie Bell, Udo Kier, Uma Thurman, Stellan Skarsgård, Christian Slater and Willem Dafoe. The Full Press Release below: Whether Lars von Trier would return to Cannes with Nymphomaniac has been the subject of speculations ever since the project was announced.

Banned or not, you can't have a Cannes festival entirely devoid of some Lars Von Trier-related shenanigans. The Hollywood Reporter today showed a still, released in Cannes by production company Zentropia, of the cast of Von Trier's upcoming "sex film" Nymphomaniac. The picture shows every major cast member carefully choreographed into a variety of cheeky positions. The article does point out a few of the jokes in the picture, the funniest of which has Lars Von Trier standing gagged in the background. Probably so he cannot say anything in support of Hitler this time? Shia LeBeouf, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Christian Slater and Willem Dafoe can also be spotted. Check out a bigger version in the gallery below. Zentropia revealed the premiere date: expect Nymphomaniac to arrive in...

Twenty years ago, when I first started reading credits of movies I loved to see who'd written the screenplay, one name leapt out at me: Eric Red. In the space of three years in the late 1980s he wrote the terrifying Rutger Hauer road movie The Hitcher and two brilliant genre movies for a young director called Kathryn Bigelow: the trailer-trash vampire movie Near Dark, and Blue Steel, a feminist cop movie with Jamie Lee Curtis as a rookie up against an amorous serial killer. The first two of those have gone on to become bona fide cult classics. But Red remains little known – as does the film of his I really loved, one he wrote and directed in 1988, Cohen and Tate. »
