The looniest trailer yet for the thriller has dropped: a black-and-white 1950s-inspired affair that features new salacious footage and an intentionally corny voice-over that promises "The Canyons" will showcase a "Los Angeles you have never seen before."

Writer Bret Easton Ellis and "American Gigolo" writer-director Paul Schrader sure have taken a creative approach to promoting their upcoming seedy-looking indie "The Canyons."

First came a decidedly bizarre teaser that consisted of endless establishing shots of Los Angeles, minus any footage of the film's two stars, Lindsay Lohan and porn star James Deen. Then a Grindhouse-style teaser hit the web, offering us our first glimpse of the two in action and selling "The Canyons" as an old-school trash fest. And now, the looniest trailer yet for the thriller has dropped: a black-and-white 1950s-inspired affair that features new salacious footage and an intentionally corny voice-over that promises "The Canyons" will showcase a "Los Angeles you have never seen before."

If the latest trailer's to be trusted (and, given the tongue-in-cheek tone, the jury's out on that one), don't expect to see "The Canyons" in a theater near you in the coming months. The clip closes out with the voice-over saying, "Coming soon to an internet server of your choice." A VOD release does make sense for this release, but only time will tell. Watch this space for more.
