New Trailer For Shame Features Carey Mulligan's Beautiful Singing Voice
In Steve McQueen's Shame there's a scene in which Brandon, played by Michael Fassbender, and his boss, played by James Badge Dale, go out to a restaurant to see Brandon's sister perform at a club. This results in an extended sequence in which we watch Carey Mulligan sing a beautiful rendition of Liza Minnelli's "New York New York." While watching the movie at AFI Fest last week, I couldn't help but think about how it perfectly encapsulated the tone of the film. Now, in a brilliant move by Fox Searchlight, that song has found its way into the newest preview for the film.
The second domestic trailer for Shame has arrived online. Check it out below and see it in HD over at Apple.
Anyone else find it really strange to see the NC-17 banner in front of the trailer? It's such a rarity, as studios usually try everything in their power to get the rating overturned, but that was never going to happen with this film. In case this breathtaking trailer wasn't enough to convince you to go see the movie, I'll just say this: Shame is a movie worth hunting down.
Set in New York City, the story follows Brandon, a sex addict quietly trying to live his life when his sister arrives unexpectedly and announces that she will be staying with him indefinitely. The movie will hit theaters on December 2nd and to learn more about Shame you should head over to our Blend Film Database.
