Today, Lars von Trier begins shooting his new film(s) Nymphomaniac, which tell “the wild and poetic story of a woman’s erotic journey from birth to the age of 50.” If things go as planned, the final release will be split into two films, with hardcore and softcore versions of each. Shooting in Germany and Belgium, the project stars Charlotte Gainsbourg as Joe, the self-diagnosed nymphomaniac of the title, and the participation of Stellan Skarsgård and Shia LaBeouf is confirmed by a press release announcing the start of production.
That same press release confirms other actors and reveals some new names that will be part of the story, too: Stacy Martin (as young Joe), Jamie Bell, Connie Nielsen, Mia Goth, Jens Albinus, Severin von Hoensbroech, Peter Gilberg Cotton, Nicolas Bro, Tabea Tarbiat, Janine Romanowski, Jesper Christensen, Tania Carlin, Felicity Gilbert and Shanti Roney.

The Avengers won’t hit DVD and Blu-ray until late September but some of the special features are beginning to pop up online, including a must-see 4-minute long blooper/gag reel. After the jump you’ll also find a two minute extended scene between Loki (Tom Hiddleston), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) and Selvig (Stellan Skarsgård) preparing and planning. While you can definitely see why this scene was shortened, its interesting to see the conversation that was lost on the editing room floor.

To celebrate Earth’s Mightiest Heroes (and those they share the stage with) this week’s TBMYPHS is dedicated to the members of this amazing team up, and the work they did before getting their action figure on. Read More »

Daniel Craig‘s Mikael Blomkvist may be the protagonist of David Fincher‘s The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, but just as the title suggests, it’s Rooney Mara as mysterious, tough-as-nails Lisbeth Salander who’s the real draw of the story. A new extended TV spot for the thriller wisely puts the computer hacker front and center, establishing her fierce badassery before Craig’s character comes along to pull her into the actual plot. Watch the video after the jump.

A pair of recent reports suggests that he’s eyeing previous collaborators Stellan Skarsgård and Willem Dafoe for the film. Though the film is described as a porno, it sounds like Skarsgård, at least, will be keeping it in his pants. Read more after the jump.
