IFC Films has released the first official trailer for director Paul Schrader’s (American Gigolo) new film The Canyons. Written by Bret Easton Ellis (American Psycho), the film centers on the relationship between a wealthy movie producer and his girlfriend, who’s having an affair with an actor from her past. Lindsay Lohan plays the girlfriend, while porn actor James Deen is the film’s male lead. The trailer is pretty much what you’d expect from a Lindsay Lohan movie written by Bret Easton Ellis, as we see glimpses of sex, barely-clothed men, and, of course, a cameo by Gus Van Sant. While Lohan showed promise all those years ago, her performance appears to be DOA in The Canyons. I’m not really sure who the audience for this movie is, but I assume one exists.
Hit the jump to watch the trailer for yourself and to check out some NSFW images from the pic. The film also stars Nolan Gerard Funk and Amanda Brooks. The Canyons will be available in limited release and on VOD and iTunes on August 2nd.
