Lars von Trier Titillates and Provokes With First 'Nymphomaniac' Poster

The first poster for Lars von Trier’s hotly anticipated sexual epic “Nymphomaniac” has made its way onto the web two weeks ahead of Cannes — where his latest provocation won’t be screening.

The sparse poster features the tagline “Forget About Love,” positioned above… well, we’ll let you be the judge. Filmed in both hardcore and softcore versions, “Nymphomaniac” tracks the erotic life of a woman (Charlotte Gainsbourg) from childhood to middle-age.
Shia LaBeouf, Stellan Skarsgård and Uma Thurman all co-star. Magnolia is releasing the film stateside.
