With the whole theatrical cut vs. director’s cut debate pretty much cleared up—the four hour cut is the “official” version (though unseen by the filmmaker) while Lars Von Trier is free to figure out how to release his 5 1/2 hour cut—it seems everyone is getting back to selling the two-part sexterpiece, and a couple new posters have landed today.
Granted, they don’t provide much in the way of new imagery, but they do collect all the o-faces from last month’s character posters into one handy place, while a separate one-sheet goes in for a close up. As we’ve seen across the teasers thus far, Von Trier has more than a few tricks up his sleeve with his epic movie, one that promises to be dramatic and disturbing, while employing some tricks to make sure we’re still paying attention as the runtime goes on (i.e. split screen for example).
“Nymphomaniac” arrives on Christmas Day in Denmark and Norway, and opens in France in January. No U.S. date yet.
