If you were expecting the marketing campaign for Lars von Trier's (Meloncholia) Nymphomaniac to suddenly become coy? You’re sadly mistaken. Following on from the consignment of brilliant one sheets that saw the main cast lost in the heat of the moment, this latest poster that finds Charlotte Gainsbourg (21 Grams) trying to enjoy a relaxing read and a tasty apple while Shia LaBeouf (Lawless) prepares to practise his linguistic skills on her nether regions.
Nymphomaniac chronicles the erotic journey of self-diagnosed sex addict Joe (Charlotte Gainsbourg) from birth until the age of 50. The movie will jump around in time and cover a large number of characters along the way. Appearing alongside Gainsbourg and Shia LaBeouf are Jamie Bell, Uma Thurman, Udo Kier, Sophie Kennedy Clark, Willem Dafoe, Stellan Skarsgård, Mia Goth, Christian Slater, Nicolas Bros and Connie Nielsen, all of whom featured in the somewhat fruity campaign.
Nymphomaniac will arrive in Danish cinemas on 25 December and should get a UK release early in 2014.
