First Poster For Lars Von Trier's NYMPHOMANIAC Gives New Meaning To The Word 'Teaser'

Brian Clark, European Editor
The first poster for Lars von Trier's erotic epic Nymphomaniac offers a slightly more tasteful and less provocative tease than the first still, though I still wouldn't go so far as to call it subtle. While the film won't be premiering at Cannes this year, its promotion campaign is kicking off and will apparently, "stretch over the next eight months, offering an extensive variety of materials unfolding the multifaceted universe of Nymphomaniac." Next up is probably the same poster design, except, you know: Ɛ≡=D.

Meanwhile, just in case you haven't looked at the entire cast list all together, it goes like this: Charlotte Gainsbourg and Stellan Skarsgård along with Stacy Martin, Shia LaBeouf, Jamie Bell, Christian Slater, Uma Thurman, Willem Dafoe, Connie Nielsen, Mia Goth, Udo Kier, Jean-Marc Barr, Caroline Goodall, Kate Ashfield, Saskia Reeves, Sophie Kennedy Clark, Hugo Speer, Felicity Gilbert, Michaël Pas, Jesper Christensen, Jens Albinus, Nicolas Bro, Cyron Melville, Shanti Roney, Omar Shargawi, Tania Carlin, Severin von Hoensbroech, Peter Gilbert Cotton and many more. Though, given that last we heard, the film was still seven and a half hours long, it's anyone's guess who will actually make the final cut.

Update: Oh dear. Look what the poster does when you scroll down on the official website.

Around the Internet:
  • Buried in the source code:

    "Nymphomaniac is the wild and poetic chronicle of a woman’s journey from birth to the age of 50 as told by the main character, the self-diagnosed nymphomaniac, Joe.

    On a cold winter’s evening Seligman, an old bachelor, finds Joe semi-unconscious and beaten up in an alleyway. After bringing her to his flat he sees to her wounds while trying to understand how things could have gone so wrong for her. He listens intently as she over the next 8 chapters recounts the lushly branched-out and multi faceted story of her life, rich in associations and interjecting incidents."

    Was this written by a giggling 9yr old boy?

    I'd like to think I AM still one of those at heart. But really, are you implying that I went for an immature joke when speaking about a sophisticated and nuanced work of poster art that demanded more analysis? I was really just trying to make a wry joke about the fact that this poster is only slightly less subtle than the first promotional still of gainsbourg in a threesome. But if I'm missing something deeper here, I would (no sarcasm) love to be enlightened.

    () is the title of a Sigur Ros album. The band may or may not be doing the soundtrack for Nymphomaniac, but they did shoot a video with Labeouf.

    Incidentally, a second still has been released on the official website.
