All you have to say is “Lars von Trier sex movie” to get someone interested in Nymphomaniac. The controversial director has told many visceral and beautiful stories over his career, often with a great sexual frankness, that the idea of him making full movie about sexuality just screams “potential.”
Speaking of screaming, fourteen character posters for the film have just been released that are sure to make even more people excited about the film. They show the film’s stars — actors as Shia LaBeouf, Jamie Bell, Uma Thurman, Willem Dafoe, Stellan Skarsgård, Christian Slater, and Charlotte Gainsbourg – in their most intimate moments. I believe on The League they call it “Vinegar Strokes,” the moment right before, and during orgasm. Check out these provocative posters below. Read More »
The leader of the fishtank is coming back for Finding Dory, and he’s already started voice work. Oscar-nominee Willem Dafoe recently confirmed he reprising his role as Gill, the scared Moorish Idol who previously lived in an Australian dentist office, in the 2016 sequel to Finding Nemo. Plus, he’s already begun work on it and thinks the script is better than the original. Read More »
Crazy Heart director Scott Cooper returns this winter with Out of the Furnace, a crime thriller that features an all star cast including Christian Bale, Casey Affleck, Woody Harrelson, Forest Whitaker, Willem Dafoe, Zoë Saldana and Sam Shepard.
The first trailer made the film look great, and this new one outlines the story a bit better, so if you watch this you’ll start to know how brothers played by Bale and Affleck run afoul of a local criminal played by Harrelson, and how that sets up a conflict that will probably mess everyone up in the end.

Anton Corbijn‘s third feature film, A Most Wanted Man, features Philip Seymour Hoffman, Rachel McAdams, Robin Wright, and Willem Dafoe in a story adapted from a novel by John le Carre (Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy). We’ve seen an early sales trailer for the film (which was sadly pulled) but until now the movie didn’t have any US distribution in place.
Now Lionsgate has stepped in to put the film in theaters. We don’t have a date for the studio’s plan at this point, but it’s good to know that there is a plan, or that there will shortly be one, at least. The film is about a Chechen-Russian immigrant, nearly penniless, who travels to Hamburg to claim an inheritance from his late father. But the source of his pop’s money is a little shady, and the US and German governments are watching. Hoffman plays a German security official who harbors serious suspicions about the situation.
We’ll post a new trailer as soon as one becomes available. With a studio on board, the next footage we see won’t be pulled from the internet. [Deadline]
Here’s the trailer for Out of the Furnace, the new film from Crazy Heart director Scott Cooper. The film features Christian Bale as a Pennsylvania steelworker whose brother (Casey Affleck) gets in trouble with a backwoods but powerful criminal (Woody Harrelson). The rest of the supporting cast is impressive, with Zoe Saldana, Willem Dafoe, Forest Whitaker, and Sam Shepard playing big roles, all of which are given a few moments here.
This trailer is solid. In fact, just so long as you’re willing to have Pearl Jam’s ‘Release‘ in your head for the rest of the day, I think it’s a pretty terrific trailer, and one that will set the movie up as a must-see for a lot of people who might not have known what to expect before now.

Lars von Trier may have been banned (or “banned”) from Cannes two years ago for statements made while promoting Melancholia, but that hasn’t stopped him from having a presence at the fest this year. His new film(s), the two-part Nymphomaniac, weren’t finished in time for the fest, but the release of a new image (above) and a press release are keeping Trier in the global cinema conversation as Cannes kicks off this year.
Click the pic above for a larger version and you’ll be able to see actors such as Shia LaBeouf, Jamie Bell, Udo Kier, Uma Thurman, Sophie Kennedy Clark, Willem Dafoe, Mia Goth, Stellan Skarsgård, Christian Slater, and star Charlotte Gainsbourg, as well as the director. And hit the jump for a press release from Trier’s producer, announcing a Christmas Day opening in Denmark. Magnolia has the film in the US, and hasn’t announced a release date yet. Read More »
Cool Posts From Around the Web:

Fiennes plays the concierge of the titular hotel, and the cast also includes Bill Murray, Edward Norton, Adrien Brody, Willem Dafoe, Harvey Keitel, Tilda Swinton, Jason Schwartzman, Owen Wilson, Jeff Goldblum, F. Murray Abraham, Jude Law, and Mathieu Amalric.
Some set pics and videos hit the web last night, showing that the hotel of the title is grand, indeed, as are some of the costumes worn by the cast. Jeff Goldblum’s facial hair is no small matter, either. Check them all out below.
Update: At the request of Fox, we’ve pulled the images.
