A new image has been released for Lars Von Trier’s upcoming two-part drama, Nymphomaniac. Charlotte Gainsbourg stars as Joe, a self-diagnosed nymphomaniac who recounts her life story to Seligman (Stellan Skarsgard), an old, charming bachelor who finds Jo beaten up in an alley. Joe then recounts to him the story of her erotic life, from birth to the age of fifty. The film will be released in hard-core and soft-core versions, and Magnolia has announced that they’ll be distributing the film in the U.S. However, we don’t know if they’ll be distribution both versions, and how those versions will be distributed. The standard release plan for Magnolia has become VOD before theatrical, and it looks like Nymphomaniac won’t be playing at Cannes because it missed the submission deadline rather than Von Trier being declared Persona Non Grata after his comments at the festival in 2011 when he was doing press for Melancholia.
