Lars von Trier's 'Nymphomaniac' Gets a Release Date and Two New Posters

Lars von Trier's Nymphomaniac will be broken up into two parts for its U.S. release, both expected to run approximately two hours long. Nymphomaniac: Part I will open in theaters on March 21, 2014, and be available On Demand as of March 6, 2014 and will introduce us to the story of Joe (Charlotte Gainsbourg), a self-diagnosed nymphomaniac who is discovered badly beaten in an alley by an older bachelor, Seligman (Stellan Skarsgård), who takes her into his home. As he tends to her wounds, she recounts the erotic story of her adolescence and young-adulthood (portrayed in flashback by Stacy Martin).

This first part also stars Shia LaBeouf, Christian Slater, Uma Thurman, Sophie Kennedy Clark, Connie Nielsen and Udo Kier.

Part II will open in theaters on April 18, 2014 and be available On Demand as of April 3, 2014 and picks up with the story of Joe's adulthood, and stars Jamie Bell, Willem Dafoe, Mia Goth and Jean-Marc Barr as well as Gainsbourg, Skarsgård, Martin and LaBeouf.

Today the studio also released two new posters, one for each part, which are included below. If you missed the previously released, explicit red band trailer I have included it above, but do remember it is not safe for work environments.

    Still loving the marketing for this...I'm very curious about the film.

  • navaneethks

    I am guessing both are limited releases..

      True, but widely accessible via on demand. I'll likely wait till April and check em both out from the comfort of my couch.

    Anyone who thinks Von Trier is all about shock value should really check out Breaking The Waves and Dancer In The Dark, both are beautiful.

      Thanks Andy. I will check those titles out.

        Bjork won Best Actress at Canne for DITD, she'll break your heart with her performance.

  • yrabadi

    Both of these posters are solid.

    Will it be an edited cut shown in the United States, or the original cut?

    The marketing for this film is so savvy. It reminds me of what Masters of Sex has done with it’s intro (check out the you tube if you haven’t seen it yet).
    The images seem like captures of a film segment rather than a still shot. Not that I know much about photo and video editing...
