You Should Wait Until After Work To Watch This ‘Nymphomaniac’ Trailer

Purely in terms of trailers, the flashing images of the Nymphomaniac advertisement are shocking. As for the film itself, it’s a safe bet that Lars von Trier will have something unsettling, maybe even wince-worthy (see: Antichrist) in store, but there’s little chance it will be truly shocking to anyone who’s either had sex or seen it portrayed on screen. The images here are shocking, but only because of the alienating thrill of seeing them in a promo.

However, replace the nudity and sex with explosions and gun blasts, and it’d be a mainstream action trailer.

The production is most likely saving a lot of money shots for later, but this peek seems to point to newcomer Stacy Martin (as Young Joe) getting the brunt of the challenge. Then again, von Trier is known for putting his actresses through the ringer, so it’s doubtful anyone’s safe. At least not for work.

Nymphomaniac is playfully coming soon.
