Lars Von Trier‘s two-part erotic epic Nymphomaniac is slated to be released in Denmark on Christmas, but we’ve been waiting to find out when we would get a release in the U.S.  The film stars Charlotte Gainsbourg as Joe, a self-diagnosed nymphomaniac who recounts her life story to Seligman (Stellan Skarsgard), an old, charming bachelor who finds Joe beaten up in an alley.  U.S. distributor Magnolia Pictures announced today that it will release Nymphomaniac: Part One on VOD on March 6th and in theaters on March 21st.  Nymphomaniac: Part Two will be released on VOD on April 3rd and in theaters on April 18th.

The films are still unrated, and it will be interesting to see if they could get different cuts based on release platform.  That is to say, would Magnolia put an unrated cut on VOD, and then release an R-rated version to theaters since most movie theaters won’t show a film if it’s NC-17 or NR (Not-Rated).  Either way, the flick is still going to be ridiculously graphic.  Click here to check out the super NSFW trailer.  Hit the jump to read the full press release, which includes the synopsis for each part of the film.

NEW YORK (December 5, 2013) – Magnolia Pictures announced today the U.S. release dates for Lars von Trier’s much-anticipated motion picture event, NYMPHOMANIAC, which will be released as two full-length feature films. NYMPHOMANIAC: PART ONE will open in theaters on March 21, 2014, and be available On Demand as of March 6, 2014. NYMPHOMANIAC: PART TWO will open in theaters on April 18, 2014 and be available On Demand as of April 3, 2014.

NYMPHOMANIAC: PART ONE is the story of Joe (Charlotte Gainsbourg), a self-diagnosed nymphomaniac who is discovered badly beaten in an alley by an older bachelor, Seligman (Stellan Skarsgård), 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). PART ONE also stars Shia LaBeouf, Christian Slater, Uma Thurman, Sophie Kennedy Clark, Connie Nielsen and Udo Kier.

PART TWO picks up with the story of Joe’s adulthood, and stars Jamie Bell, Willem Dafoe, Mia Goth and Jean-Marc Barr in addition to Gainsbourg, Skarsgård, Martin and LaBeouf.

NYMPHOMANIAC: PART ONE and NYMPHOMANIAC: PART TWO mark Lars von Trier’s follow-up to his critically acclaimed film, MELANCHOLIA (released by Magnolia in 2011), and is his third consecutive collaboration with Charlotte Gainsbourg. A groundbreaking filmmaker for more than two decades, von Trier’s other films credits include ANTICHRIST, DOGVILLE, DANCER IN THE DARK, and BREAKING THE WAVES. NYMPHOMANIAC is produced by Louise Vesth for Zentropa Entertainments.

As widely reported, the films contain graphic depictions of sexuality to a degree unprecedented in a mainstream feature film. After von Trier’s experience at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival, where he was harshly criticized for comments he made at the MELANCHOLIA press conference, he has vowed to cease doing press on behalf of his films and let them speak for themselves. Both films will have their international debut in Denmark, where they’re opening this Christmas Day
