Just in case the title Nymphomaniac hasn’t given it away (or the fact that it is being touted as ‘the Lars von Trier film with a lot of sex in it,’ which is kinda saying something, given his oeuvre) Lars von Trier wants to make sure you are aware that Nymphomaniac is about sex, with a lot of people having it.
As such, the film’s poster campaign as rolled out a series of one-sheets in which the entire cast are seen, individually, in the throes of sexual ecstasy (except for Shia LaBeouf, who is too busy being a recalcitrant poser, as per usual). While at first the ads seem a little shameless, they do seem to capture rather well von Trier’s heady mix of sexuality, confrontation, vulnerability, and absurdist humor. So, check out the cast—Charlotte Gainsbourg, Uma Thurman, Shia LaBeouf, Jamie Bell, Willem Dafoe, Stellen Skarsgard, Christian Slater, and more getting laid in what is certain to be one of the more interesting ad campaigns of 2013:
Nyphomaniac is slated for a release date in early 2014, stay tuned for a more precise date when we have it.
What do you think of the Nymphomaniac posters—ridiculous, or just right?
