Full Trailer for Paul Schrader’s THE CANYONS Starring Lindsay Lohan and James Deen; Plus New NSFW Images

     July 10, 2013


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.

Here’s the official synopsis for The Canyons:

Christian is a young LA trust-fund dude who’s financing a horror film simply to keep his dad off his back about doing something with his life. He has been dating Tara for about a year — she was an aspiring actress/model who settled down with him when the reality of the business became apparent to her. She’s now just Christian’s bored plaything. Christian’s assistant Gina is casting the film with assistance from Tara. Gina is pushing Ryan, her boyfriend and struggling actor, for the lead. Unbeknownst to either Christian or Gina, Ryan and Tara were a couple three years ago. When Ryan came back into Tara’s life during the auditions for the movie, they reignited their affair. But Christian, a dangerous control-freak, finds out about the affair and starts playing cruel mind games with both Tara and Ryan, which escalate into an act of bloody violence.

Here are some NSFW images from the film, courtesy of Film Comment (via The Playlist).

    just remember… paul schrader also was hired to do the exorcist prequel which turned out so bad they hired renny harlan to re-direct it to try and make it better… could be good, could be bad, or it could be so bad it’s good

    Whoever cut this trailer should win an award. If I had just seen that I might actually want to watch this. Sadly, I’ve seen a different trailer and other footage and it looks horrible. So Good job with the trailer… but you can’t fool me.

      you hit the nail with that comment good sir!

      • OK

        I agree, the first trailer they threw together looked like a high school project with actors that thought they were doing actual porn. I can’t believe they got James Dean to come back from the dead, replace the “a” with an “e” and get major facial reconstructive surgery. I thoroughly agree though, whoever cut this trailer (aside from the music choice) is a genius!

    this looks like the best movie ever made, since American gigolo.

    Does this movie have a plot?

  • bidi

    was Mean Girls that big of a fluke? Lindsay Lohan is making Megan Fox look like Meryl Streep

      …Maybe Freaky Friday was real and Jamie Lee Curtis is just livin’ it up!

    “I’m not really sure who the audience for this movie is, but I assume one exists.”

    The audience that wants to see Lohan’s ta-tas, that’s who. And they better be hers for real this time, none of that stunt double shit I saw in Machete.

    I love you Linsay Lohan …

    I don’t get all the “Lindsay can’t act” remarks. The trailer doesn’t even show much. She sounded like she was questioning her interest in movies and it came out right. DOA? she sounded just fine, better yet, very much alive because nothing beats a female with an expressive raspy husky voice. maybe you’re the one who’s dead..down there. I mean, it doesn’t make you look good when you do that.
