There’s already been a lot of talk surrounding Danish director Lars Von Trier’s next project, Nymphomaniac. But that’s bound to happen once you announce that you’re making a movie about one woman’s lifetime of sex addiction that’s going to feature graphic scenes of sexual penetration performed by mainstream actors. Or will it? The debate as to whether or not we’re going to be shown Shia LaBeouf’s penis has been raging for over a year now.
But putting Shia LaBeouf’s penis aside for a moment, the film has just released its first teaser, or its first “Nymphomaniac appetizer,” as they’re calling it, so we can now finally get our first glimpse at exactly what level of shocking tawdriness the esteemed director of Antichrist has in store for us this time around. Spoilers: it involves young girls having sex with strangers on a train.
Seeing as this “Nymphomaniac appetizer” was subtitled, ‘Chapter 1: The Compleat Angler,’ you’ve probably caught on to the fact that we’re going to be seeing more of these little snippets in the lead-up to the main course’s eventual release. And chances are probably good we’ll be posting all of them. Who can resist the promise of a steamy tease, after all? We’ll be keeping our eyes peeled for the next chapter, as well as an announcement from Magnolia as to when they’re planning to give this thing its North American release. Let’s get on that already, Magnolia!
