Fox Searchlight Pictures has unleashed a new red band trailer for "Shame". Despite lack of dialog, the promo video gives away the one scene that focuses on the sexual tension Michael Fassbender shares with a beautiful woman in a subway. Intercepting the scene are his explicit sexual intercourse with a number of women.
Fassbender portrays Brandon, a 30-something man living in New York who shuns intimacy with women but feeds his desires with a compulsive addiction to sex. When his wayward younger sister moves into his apartment stirring memories of their shared painful past, his insular life spirals out of control.
Through this role, Fassbender won the Best Actor award at the 2011 Venice Film Festival. In the cast ensemble, he is joined by Carey Mulligan, James Badge Dale and Nicole Beharie.
"Shame" is directed by Steve McQueen, who also pens the screenplay along with Abi Morgan. This NC17-rated drama, which received positive reviews at several Film Festivals, will open in limited U.S. theaters on December 2.
