The Canyons

Paul Schrader’s next film, The Canyons, was written by famed author Bret Easton Ellis and stars Lindsay Lohan and some male porn star, which earned the project some hype right from the very moment it was announced that held straight through its production. But, despite all of its marquee talent, the movie put out a weird teaser trailer that didn’t seem to have any actual footage from the film and was mostly just a bunch of abstract images shot around L.A.

Well, now the film has released a full trailer, and instead of being street photography stuff that doesn’t feature Lindsay Lohan, it’s…something else that’s completely weird as well. It would seem that either The Canyons was shot in black and white, its images have been altered to make this vintage-style trailer, or what we’re looking at still isn’t actual footage from the film. Which of these possibilities sounds most believable?

Actually, let’s hope that what we’re seeing still isn’t real footage from the film, because, if it is, that would mean that The Canyons is some sort of overwrought relationship drama with porn-level acting that looks like it would be at home being billed as a double feature with The Room. Is The Canyons a stunt? A joke? A real movie that these people actually want us to watch? Check the new trailer out and decide for yourself.

The Canyons does not yet have a release date. [via /Film]
