Lars von Trier has a new movie. It’s called “Nymphomanaic.” And basically, if you’re any sort of cinephile, that is all you need to know for this one to be way, way up on your list of anticipated films of 2013.
But here are the details in case you’ve been sleeping on this one. The pic starts Charlotte Gainsbourg in a two-part hardcore or softcore (there will be two versions) look at the sex life of a woman who recounts her tale to a bachelor (Stellan Skarsgård) who finds her badly beaten in an alley one evening (see that pic here). Shia LaBeouf, Jamie Bell, Christian Slater, Connie Nielsen, Willem Dafoe and Uma Thurman are among the cast, and yeah, no matter how this turns out, it’s gonna be memorable. Seriously, just check out that new pic above.
The question of course, is whether or not von Trier will be welcomed back to Cannes considering his new status of persona non grata. But considering he’s sworn off press anyway, our guess is the movie will be there, but he won’t.
