Nymphomaniac Extended Director's Cut will be released on VOD on October 2nd in the Us, Canada, Spain, The Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg, Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Estonia as well as in Lars von Trier's native Denmark with more territories to follow in the weeks to come. Take a look at the poster below for the new Extended Director's Cut.
In Lars von Trier's native country, Denmark, the director's cut version has received rave reviews in connection with its theatrical release and event screenings. Danish critics have handed out 5 and 6-star reviews to the film which met the audience for the first time at Berlin International Film Festival (Vol. 1) earlier this year and Venice Film Festival (Vol. 2) about a month ago.
The upcoming releases and festivals completes the circle for one of the most unusual and extraordinary releases seen in a long time.
Nymphomaniac is produced by Louise Vesth for »
More often than not, when a studio releases a director’s cut of a film, it’s met with positive feedback from the audience. A chance to peek behind the curtain to see the filmmaker’s vision in its pure, untainted form. For Nymphomaniac, though — Lars Von Trier’s unflinching opus about the life of a sex addict — things might be a little, well, different.
Nevertheless, the renown Danish director is set to release his own five-and-a-half-hour-long director’s cut of the film — which was originally split into two volumes in every territory bar Denmark — alongside Nymphomaniac’s upcoming VOD release on October 2nd.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Von Trier is also planning to screen the uncut version “at special festival events across North America, as well as in several European countries including Spain, the Netherlands, Poland, the Czech Republic and in Trier’s native Denmark.”

I haven’t had the ‘pleasure’ of watching either of director Lars Von Trier’s Nymphomaniac as yet, but I did manage to catch most of the clips leading up to release. None shocked me more than the 23-second ‘director’s cut’ teaser that debuted just over a couple of weeks ago. I’m not easily shocked, and truly believe that I’m quite liberal, but this is very, very hard stuff. It really does not get much more Nc-17 than this, a rating I’m sure that it will receive upon release, which we’re told will be in October. The release will be both in cinemas, and VOD, and will also expand to Spain, the Netherlands, Poland, Czech Republic and Denmark. Notice the exclusion of the UK in that list. I really don’t know how they’re going to get around the, let’s face it, pornographic content over here. »

Indie director Gareth Edwards got a crack at one of the biggest monsters there is in this summer's blockbuster. Bryan Cranston plays a scientist obsessed with government secrets since the mysterious death of his wife Sandra (Juliette Binoche) after a suspicious nuclear reactor meltdown. Aaron Taylor-Johnson co-stars as his son Ford, a Navy guy who discovers that dear old dad's paranoia might actually be worth checking out. Ken Watanabe and Sally Hawkins co-star as scientists studying the real cause of that nuclear meltdown.

Sneak Peek more Nsfw footage from the two-part dramatic feature film "Nymphomaniac", starring Charlotte Gainsbourg, Stellan Skarsgård, Uma Thurman, Mia Goth, Shia Labeouf, Sophie Kennedy Clark, Jamie Bell, Christian Slater and Connie Nielsen:
"...'Joe' (Gainsbourg), who is a self-diagnosed 'nymphomaniac' sex addict, is found by 'Seligman' (Skarsgård) beaten in an alley.
"Seligman takes her home to care for her, and Joe recounts the story of her life, from birth to the age of 50..."
"We are making two films", said the movie's producer.
"It is a big operation...We will shoot both and edit both – and we want to finish both at the same time."
There will also be two versions of each film: an 'explicit' cut and a 'softer' cut.
"The movie is what you think it is," said former "Transformers" star Labeouf.
"For instance, there's a disclaimer at the top of the script that basically says we're doing it for real. »

If the 2014 festival circuit were a contest — and why shouldn’t it be, since these lofty-minded sprocket operas pit the directors whose work they screen in competition against one another? — then the Venice film festival emerges the winner. That will come as sacrilege to some, who consider Cannes the undisputed titan among international film showcases. And it may baffle the Oscar-obsessed, who look to Telluride and Toronto for indications of what will win Academy Awards.
This year, the litmus test came down to which fest would land the director’s cut of Lars Von Trier’s “Nymphomaniac.” And Venice scored the coup, programming the 5-hour-and-25-minute atom bomb of a movie amid a lineup that included stellar new films from Alejandro G. Inarritu (“Birdman”), Roy Andersson (“A Pigeon Sat on a Branch Reflecting on Existence”), Ramin Bahrani (“99 Homes”) and Larry Clark (whose “The Smell of Us” is like a French “Kids”).

Bong Joon-Ho’s Snowpiercer has brought in a combined box office of nearly $11 million from on-demand and theatrical revenues, RADiUS-twc said. The company also updated VOD revenues for Charlie McDowell’s quirky comedy The One I Love, adding more than $200K in on-demand to totals reported two weeks ago.
RADiUS, practically alone among distributors using more-or-less simultaneous theatrical and on-demand releases of their specialty films, has regularly revealed VOD numbers since last fall. The company’s decision to make the numbers routinely available came soon after John Sloss gave VOD numbers for Escape From Tomorrow, then challenged other companies to do the same.
But no other company but RADiUS has responded to Sloss’ call to consistently reveal non-theatrical grosses. In June, RADiUS released to Deadline VOD data on its Oscar-winning 20 Feet From Stardom and The Unknown Known. Two weeks ago, RADiUS included updated VOD numbers when reporting weekend theatrical grosses and did so again today. »

Lars von Trier’s sexual epic Nymphomaniac was split into two parts upon its initial release (as Nymphomaniac: Volume I and Nymphomaniac: Volume II), it was also edited for content. Though Von Trier gave his consent for that edit, he still held onto his plans to make a director’s cut of the film entitled Nymphomaniac: Director’s Cut. And it looks like he’s prepping that cut for release, if this teaser is any indication. Also, I need to tell you right now hat this teaser is Nsfw. You may think you know Nsfw by now, but you don’t. This kind of breaks both the Nsfw barrier and my own brain when it comes to the amount of sexual content that can be crammed into 20 seconds. Hit the jump to watch the teaser and click here to read Matt’s review of Volume I and here for his review of Volume II. »

Snowpiercer is coming to Blu-Ray and DVD on October 21st, and if there is one movie to make sure is on your home video release radar, this is it. You’ve probably heard quite a bit about this one, and it’s one of the oddest and, if the critical consensus can be believed, most awesome sci-fi releases in quite a while.
Odd, because it pushes the limits of indie films, and their theatrical releases and marketing efforts. Though you’ve likely heard of the film, it wouldn’t have taken that much effort to avoid doing so, and you may not have even had much opportunity to catch it in theaters. Even with the recent upswing in recognizable names in films that are indie, indie-eque, microbudget, or whatever else, a tense sci-fi effort with Chris Evans, Tilda Swinton, John Hurt, Ed Harris, and more still seems like it ought »

After a whole lot of pre-release drama, Bong Joon Ho's critically acclaimed Snowpiercer finally made landfall in America last month, hitting limited theaters and seeing release through VOD outlets. Now it's headed to home video, and we've got all the details for ya today!

In case you thought Lars von Trier was done cheerfully provoking audiences via his two part opus "Nymphomaniac," guess again. The enfant terrible still has a director's cut up his sleeve, and after unveiling Volume I at the Berlin Film Festival (our review), he's hitting the Venice Film Festival with Volume II. As a bonus, the fest will will be the first place where both versions will be seen together. But if you can't be there, here's three graphic clips hinting at said director's cut. Warning: these clips are very Nsfw. In the first, Charlotte Gainsbourg's sex addicted Joe visits a psychologist who has to sign off on her request for an abortion, and the meeting does not go well. In the next, we catch up with her during a therapy session, where a fellow nymphomaniac shares her tale of attempting to overdose on sex in the hopes of trying to cure her desires. »

We’re less than a year away from Chronicle director Josh Trank’s reboot of The Fantastic Four, but 20th Century Fox has kept nearly every detail about the film under tight lock and key. The only things we know for sure are the cast (which includes Kate Mara, Jamie Bell, Michael B. Jordan, and Miles Teller) and a few minor tonal details from producer Simon Kinberg.
The rest remains a mystery, as Fox opted out of cashing in on the marketing bonanza that is San Diego Comic-Con. We don’t even know the status of the film’s production, as Mara posted that filming had wrapped in July, only a week after Jordan commented that the script was “still evolving.”
Despite Fox’s best efforts to keep all aspects of the project a complete mystery, a few leaks have occurred. Last month, an image of The Thing appeared online, »

How to approach this?
There was a leaked picture of a Visual Effects Bust used for reference on the green screen set for Josh Trank's reboot of The Fantastic Four, which didn't go to comic con and was pretty leak proof until this still made the rounds.
The still was of Ben Grimm in full The Thing mode, a character that will be inhabited by Jamie Bell in the film. After awhile of the still being out there, Trank tweeted it, confirming it was real, then the studio decided to start sending requests to pull it down.
How to deal with this delicately?
Just blurry colors. What's a Gif?

Anyway, The Fantastic Four seal has been broken with photos of Dr. Doom (Toby Kebbell from Rise of the Planet of the Apes) battling pre-cg The thing and The Human Torch coming in »
More set photos from director Josh Trank's The Fantastic Four reboot have been leaked, this time giving us our first look at Doctor Doom. It is not known if this is Toby Kebbell under the costume or a stand-in. Here, we see Doctor Doom on a green screen sound stage interacting with both Jamie Bell's The Thing stand-in and Michael B. Jordan's Human Torch stand-in.

Irvine Welsh made his reputation with both the novel and the filmed version of Trainspotting, with the latter creating the cinematic language that has been borrowed by every adaptation of his work that’s followed. The most recent big screen Welsh adaptation is Filth, which was written for the screen and directed by Jon S. Baird and stars James McAvoy as Detective Bruce Robertson, a corrupt cop who’s got some issues at home and in the workforce. But where it has some of the flash of Trainspotting, it seems more like a Chuck Palahniuk adaptation, replete with a terrible third act twist. My review of the Filth Blu-ray follows after the jump. The film opens with Bruce’s wife Carole (Shauna Macdonald) who suggests that she loves her husband, but hopes that by teasing his desires he will become the next Detective Inspector. She then she goes out for »

We've already see what Jamie Bell will look like as The Thing in the upcoming "Fantastic Four" reboot. And now, we may have the first photos of Toby Kebbell as Doctor Doom. The photos are from the website Geek-Pride. It hasn't been confirmed that this is from the "Fantastic Four" set, but it sure looks that way. In one of the photos it is believed that a stuntman is standing in for The Thing and in the other photo you can see The Human Torch. Check everything out below. "Fantastic Four" is directed by Josh Trank (Chronicle) And is set to hit theaters on June 19th, 2015. Photos: (click to enlarge) »
Last month we got (what might be) a first look at Jamie Bell's The Thing from The Fantastic Four, and now it's Doctor Doom's turn. Geek Pride has posted a couple of leaked images they claim are from the set of Josh Trank's new movie featuring the villain. It also looks like the Human Torch was involved with the scene that was being filmed when the pictures were taken, as well as an actor wearing a motion capture suit. Maybe it's Jamie Bell's »

Last month an image arrived online showing how Jamie Bell’s Ben Grimm will look as The Thing in Fox’s upcoming reboot The Fantastic Four (although sadly we were forced to take it down), and now thanks to Geek Pride we may have our first look at Toby Kebbell’s Victor Von Doom, as well as a glimpse of what appears to be Michael B. Jordan’s Human Torch. If these images are genuine, then don’t expect them to stay online for very long, so check them out while you can…
Update: Images removed at the request of the studio.
The Fantastic Four is set for release on June 19th 2015, with a Johs Trank (Chronicle) directing a cast that includes Miles Teller (Divergent) as Mr. Fantastic, Kate Mara (American Horror Story) as the Invisible Woman, Michael B.
