Trailer Watch: Cronenberg's Official Dangerous Method Trailer

Sony Pictures Classics scooped up U.S. rights to David Cronenberg’s A Dangerous Method last week and now has released the official trailer, below. Produced by Jeremy Thomas (The Last Emperor), the film, which is in post-production, stars Viggo Mortenson as Sigmund Freud and Keira Knightley as the unbalanced patient of Freud’s protege, ambitious young psychiatrist Karl Jung (Michael Fassbender). Vincent Cassel co-stars as another patient who pushes the rival shrinks apart. More detail below.

Cronenberg is working again with director of photography Peter Suschitsky, costume designer Denise Cronenberg, editor Ronald Sanders (A History of Violence and Eastern Promises), and production designer James McAteer (A History of Violence) as well as composer Howard Shore (The Lord of the Rings trilogy). Christopher Hampton (Atonement) adapted his own play.

Which reminds me what about John Huston’s 1962 film Freud with Montgomery Clift? It’s never been available on DVD (or maybe even VHS for that matter). I would LOVE to see it. Universal has been sitting on it forever. It was originally released at 140 minutes but after it flopped at the box office was cut down to two hours and released again. I wish Universal would make it available (the original version if it still exists) as maybe one of those DVD-on-demands.

You can watch a scene from it here:

LOVE everything Freudian? Now you can slip behind the scenes and uncover the REAL Freud in the hot new novel “Sigmund Freud’s Sexy Secret: The Price of Obsession.” Now in the Kindle bookstore and filled with intimate details of the complicated love-lives of composer Gustav Mahler, artist Gustav Klimt and psychoanalyst Sigmund Freud, this thrilling, fast-paced, fact-based historical epic is being called the “Desperate Housewives” of Vienna in its most gorgeous, passionate period. Enjoy!
