Shia LaBeouf Gets Naughty In Nymphomaniac Clip and NSFW Image
Okay, so to be totally clear this video clip is totally safe for work. But watch out for your boss before you scroll to the bottom of this post!
The curious clip above is—as it says—a scene from Chapter 2 of Lars von Trier’s ambitious and scandal-baiting upcoming release Nymphomaniac. Titled “Jerome,” this chapter sneak peek offers our first glimpse of Shia LaBeouf in action as Jerome. In and of itself, this clip tells us very little beyond Jerome being a flirtatious and duplicitous British man. But collecting clues from past press announcements provide some much needed context.
Written and directed by von Trier, Nymphomaniac stars Charlotte Gainsbourg as Joe, the titular sex addict who unfolds her lifetime of kinky exploits to a good Samaritan who plucked her off the streets. Back in May, von Trier revealed the film would be released in two volumes, and eight chapters would make up their story. Last month saw the release of a clip from Chapter 1: The Complete Angler, which showed Stacy Martin as a young Joe making a game of casual sex on a train. In Chapter 2, we see Joe meet Jerome. And the movie’s Youtube channel offers this enigmatic caption with the clip seen above:
"Love is just lust with jealousy added"
Though love is a shallow feeling in the eyes of the cynical nymphomaniac, young Joe is met by forces penetrating her armoured defences.
His name is Jerôme.
So, while he wouldn’t be her first sexual conquest, could Jerome be Joe’s first love? We see Martin and LaBeouf paired up and posing with some a suggestive fruit plate in an early promo poster. Check out the close-up below:
And finally, the NSFW image—courtesy of Vulture—we warned you about doesn’t have LaBeouf in the la-buff but does feature a nude Martin in the throws of passion. While titillating, von Trier’s reputation—as well as and early image that teased a threesome—has us thinking this is just the tip of the iceberg of what Nymphomaniac has in store.
With von Trier teasing a new chapter each month, August should bring us a look at Chapter 3, titled “Mrs. H.” While we know the impressive international cast not only includes LaBeouf, Martin and Gainsbourg, but also Stellan Skarsgard, Christian Slater, Jamie Bell, Willem Dafoe, Sophie Kennedy Clark, Connie Nielsen, Uma Thurman, and Udo Kier, we don’t know who plays Mrs. H. English actor Hugo Speer who played the well-endowed Guy in The Full Monty is credited as Mr. H, so we can at least expect he might make an appearance.
All these chapter teases will eventually lead to Nymphomaniac’s world premiere on Christmas Day in von Trier’s native Denmark. Magnolia Pictures will be distributing the erotic drama that will feature hardcore sex. Look for it to hit the U.S. early next year.
