A new sneak peek for Lars von Trier's erotic drama "Nymphomaniac" has arrived just in time for Christmas treat. The new clip teases the eighth and final chapter in the movie, "The Gun." It shows self-diagnosed sex addict Joe (Charlotte Gainsbourg) holding a man hostage for questioning.
In "The Gun", sometimes things hide because we're familiar with them. But if you change your point of view, they can suddenly take on a whole new meaning. Joe enters a shady business, and she quickly finds out that her life has taught her some valuable skills.
The film will be released in two parts. The first part will be available on VOD March 6, 2014 before hitting theaters on March 21. It follows Joe badly beaten and left in an alley. She's helped by an older bachelor, Seligman (Stellan Skarsgard), who takes her into his home.
As he tends to her wounds, she recounts the erotic story of her adolescence and young-adulthood (portrayed in flashback by Stacy Martin). Other cast members include Shia LaBeouf, Christian Slater, Uma Thurman, Sophie Kennedy Clark, Connie Nielsen and Udo Kier.
"Part Two" will arrive in theaters on April 18 after getting a video-on-demand release April 3. It will focus on Joe's adulthood. It will star Jamie Bell, Willem Dafoe, Mia Goth and Jean-Marc Barr, besides featuring Gainsbourg, Skarsgard, Martin and LaBeouf as well.
Before coming Stateside, the film opens in Denmark on December 25.
