First Clip And A Ton Of New Photos From Steve McQueen’s Festival-Conquering ‘Shame’

First Clip And A Ton Of New Photos From Steve McQueen's Festival-Conquering 'Shame'

One of the fall festival season’s most anticipated pictures, at least in our eyes, is British artist-turned-filmmaker Steve McQueen‘s New York-set portrait of sexual addiction in “Shame” starring Michael Fassbender and Carey Mulligan.

Our own Oli Lyttelton’s excellent Venice coverage only heightened our excitement for the director’s follow-up to “Hunger” (2008) with his review praising, in particular, the “tour-de-force performance” by Fassbender and the exhibition of “absolute control and discipline shown by McQueen throughout.” Excited yet?

Fellow indieWire bloggers Shadow And Act have uncovered a slew of new photos and the first clip from McQueen’s film to torture those of us unable to attend one of the major fall fests. The film, which also features James Badge Dale and Nicole Beharie, has already premiered at Venice and Telluride to generally positive reviews and its next stop is the Toronto International Film Festival. The rest of the photos and the clip (which starts at 2:30 after highlights from the Venice press conference) are after the jump.

I’m really looking forward to this film, but while the Escott music is effective, it’s entirely distracting because there’s no disguising the fact that it’s Zimmer’s piece. (I hope Zimmer had a say in this.) Why create unoriginal music for a distinctly original film?


Funny, since that exact same Zimmer piece was used (with one or two notes changed) for the finale of X-Men First Class.

Thought it sounded familiar;

McQueen takes a risk by sampling Hans Zimmer’s score from “A Thin Red Line” (“Journey to the Line”)

I’m liking that piece of music (from Harry Escott?).
