This is what I’ve been waiting for! Now it’s finally here. The first trailer for Lars von Trier’s Nymphomaniac. There were a lot of discussions in the last few days about how this movie was going to turn out. Apparently Lars gave up final cut on the picture, which saddened and shocked a lot of fans. At the same time looking at this trailer every doubt about the film’s potential loss of awesomeness was completely erased from my mind. Also and in any case I’m sure there will be a director’s cut released on home video so I wouldn’t worry too much about it.
We’ve already seen a lot of teasers for the various chapters, but in this trailer we’re given a feel for the overall story. In the last couple days there were also two new posters, which I didn’t talk about since they’re essentially only slightly different from the ones we’ve already seen. The film will be released in Denmark (and Spain) on Christmas Day and while there’s still no official US release date, I’m afraid to say that our British friends will have to wait until March 7th, 2014. And with this news I’m afraid to find out when Swiss art houses will be ready to forget about love. Please announce something Zentropa!
