‘Nymphomaniac’ Releases First Trailer: Seductresses On A Train
Nymphomaniac, Lars von Trier’s new film that explores a woman's sexual experiences from birth to adulthood, has released its first trailer. The trailer, which features a scene from the film’s first chapter: “The Compleat Angler,” shows two young women planning to compete in seducing men travelling aboard a train.
“How does an ordinary bag of chocolate sweets become a symbol of sexual victory?” the trailer’s description reads. “As Joe and her experienced friend B embark on a train trip, they bet on how many men they can seduce on the ride. The grand prize is a delicious bag of chocolate sweets, and it soon becomes clear to Joe that in order to win, she needs to lure the prey into biting the hook like a skilled fisherman.”
In August, Shia LeBeouf, who stars in the film, suggested that Nymphomaniac would feature un-simulated sex between the actors. "It is what you think it is," LeBeouf told MTV. "There's a disclaimer at the top of the script that basically says, we're doing it for real. And anything that is 'illegal' will be shot in blurred images. But other than that, everything is happening." However, it’s recently been revealed that the sex between the actors would be simulated, although stunt doubles are said to perform actual sex acts in the film.
A “porn-inspired tableau” cast photo promo for the film was released last month, which prominently features LeBouf, Uma Thurman and Charlotte Gainsburg in a variety of compromising positions.
The film doesn’t yet have a U.S. release date.
