Which Is Your Favorite? Check Out The Beautifully Strange Character Posters For 'Nymphomaniac'

Whether coming from the generally more conservative American studio system or the much more nudity friendly European arthouse world, marketing an epic, two-movie, sex-and-flesh filled saga called “Nymphomaniac” is no easy task. But the folks behind Lars von Trier‘s provocative latest have been doing it right, with monthly teasers and today, a little surprise with the unveiling of 14 character posters. And it’s some beautifully strange stuff.

As you know, the film is led by Charlotte Gainsbourg who plays Joe, a young woman who recounts her sexual history to a stranger after being found beaten in an alley. An odd enough logline coming from anyone else, but totally making sense when delivered from the mind of Lars von Trier. And below you get a look at the wide spectrum of characters in the film, each given their own unique treatment. Our faves? Udo Kier as The Waiter (reprising his role from “Melancholia” perhaps?) while Connie Nielsen is downright terrifying.

Take a look at all of the one sheets below and let us know your favorite. “Nymphomaniac” is slated to open in Denmark and Norway on Christmas Day, though rumors are already floating that the XXX version will hit Cannes

I never need to see that photo of Nicholas Bro ever again.


My favorite? Stellan Skarsgård, of course!


The director is a deviant that pretty much despises women. If you can actually make it through "Antichrist", you'll see what I mean. The guys obsessed with women's sexual pleasure being directly linked with rape fantasy, guilt, and genital mutilation.


Strangest headline ever. Does the writer not realize the cast is getting off in these photos, that it's their O-face, essentially? Not one mention of the cast members having an orgasm, the fact that the posters are provocative, and the headline is "beautifully strange" as if he has no clue. Bafflingly unaware? Never seen anything like it.

Uma is the only one who don't seems to be shiting or pissing…


Just watched the clips on the website, looks great but Stacy Martin worries me, beautiful girl, but no actress, anyone else reminded of Sylvia Kristel? Either Von Trier's working the blank thing or we've got a protagonist devoid of personality.


Shia Lebouf sent von Trier a sex tape of himself to get the part and he still can't play along.

Where is Sasha Grey as…G?


Uma is Mrs H? wtf??? F —H—J—the water—L? what is this? Budget?

My prediction Boxoffice: 238,991 $
My Rottentomatoes: 69%


Uma's is the best.

Skarsgard FTW!

I wonder if the film will have this tongue-in-cheek attitude these posters seem to have. I seriously doubt it.
