NYMPHOMANIAC: Von Trier Gets His Metal On With Wildly NSFW First Trailer

Todd Brown, Founder and Editor
Lest there be any remaining doubts as to the sexual content of Lars Von Trier's Nymphomaniac, the first trailer is here to make things very clear in a manner that seems destined to be removed from YouTube in very short order. It's also, apparently, here to rock your ass as Lars gets his metal on. He is, after all, named Lars.

After a string of clips and recent news that Von Trier had surrendered final cut of the film, this should at least soothe those worried that the shorter version may trim out the more controversial material. No chance of that now, I'd say.

NYMPHOMANIAC is the wild and poetic story of a woman's journey from birth to the age of 50 as told by the main character, the self-diagnosed nymphomaniac, Joe (Gainsbourg). On a cold winter's evening the old, charming bachelor, Seligman (Skarsgård), finds Joe beaten up in an alley. He brings her home to his flat where he cares for her wounds while asking her about her life. He listens intently as Joe over the next 8 chapters recounts the lushy branched-out and multifaceted story of her life, rich in associations and interjecting incidents.
Charlotte Gainsbourg, Stellan Skarsgard, Willem Dafoe, Jamie Bell, Christian Slater, Shia LeBeouf, Uma Thurman, Nicolas Bro, Jens Albinus and more star. Check the trailer below.

Around the Internet:
  • Only on rewatch did I notice the red vinyl hotpants and nasty tights are a clear allusion to BREAKING THE WAVES. Plus, that shot of the drip between the legs has to be one of the most effective of his career, and that's clearly saying something.

    Very very good trailer!
    Also, nice Rammstein touch (even if i don't know the reason, the music looks really out of place xD)

  • Hiroaki Johnson

    Isn't that the song where the associated video is members of the band performing in explicit porn?

  • Bos

    Oh well, this will explain the score choice...

    (I don't know the song actually, I just recognized the singer)

  • Oh, baby.

  • I am sold.

    Hahaha Stellan's picture cracks me up every time. He's in the right movie though, he has like eight (!!??) kids!

  • Yeah, Stellan's is my favorite of the posters.

  • Art Vandelay

    Damn, that was some wild stuff. The flashes of the chapter title cards, the vagina shot, so much is jam-packed in this trailer.
