Magnolia Pictures has acquired the U.S. rights to both the hard and softcore cuts of Lars von Trier's highly anticipated sexual epic "Nymphomaniac." The company released the Palme d'Or winner's last film, "Melancholia," first on VOD then theatrically in 2011. Expect "Nymphomaniac" to go down the same route some time later this year. "After the tremendous and never predictable experience of distributing 'Melancholia,' we couldn’t be more excited to be working with Mr. von Trier again on the 'Nymphomaniac' films," said Magnolia President Eamonn Bowles in a statement. "He’s such an exciting and talented filmmaker—it’s an honor and a thrill to be associated with his world." Read More: Holy Shia!
