Blue is the Warmest Color isn’t the only film releasing this year that’s been building controversy over its sex scenes. Lars von Trier’s (Melancholia) next film, Nymphomaniac, tracks 50 years of a woman’s (Charlotte Gainsbourg) sexuality from the loss of her virginity to her mature years. Buzz swirled when Shia LaBeouf (Charlie Countryman) revealed that the sex scenes would be as real as possible. That, however, was debunked when von Trier stated that the sex scenes would be performed with body doubles from the waist down.
Playing into the film’s overtly-sexual themes (and its tagline, “Forget about love”), these new promotional posters for Nymphomaniac feature the cast’s vinegar strokes (which you can see below). Nymphomaniac stars Gainsbourg, LaBeouf, Uma Thurman, Willem Dafoe, Christian Slater, Stellan Skarsgard, and more. The film still doesn’t have a domestic release scheduled, but it will premiere in Denmark on Christmas. “Ho ho ho,” indeed.
