Bad Words is a movie about a grown man who finds a loophole in a national spelling bee competition. Letís just get that out of the way, first, because any man childish enough to dash the hopes of a slew of young children is obviously going to be some sort of a graceless jerk. In this case Jason Bateman plays the jerk
Looking to Divergent, Nymphomaniac and Noah for inspiration, we've pulled together a selection of female-fronted YA dramas, steamy tales of love and sex, and inventive interpretations of bible stories.
Theater chains arenít above the occasional wacky promotion to help fill seats. From costume contests to discounted rates for regular attendees, not a whole lot is out of bounds. If evidence is needed of that, look no further than a theater in New York City that is trying to coax parents in to see Nymphomaniac by promising to let all babies in free.
Featuring hard-core sex and gruesome violence, the movies may be too much for most moviegoers to handle. But cinephiles in Turkey won't have the choice to see it in theaters, as the nation's film board has banned Nymphomaniac outright.
March is the month where both Hollywood and the indie circuit really kick into high gear, parading out big budget spectacles, quirky comedies, action romps and yes, even a Tyler Perry movie.
This Friday, husbands and wives and boyfriends and girlfriends around the world will exchange cards, chocolates, presents and other affections to each other in honor of Valentine's Day, but director Lars von Trier seems to be celebrating the holiday in his own way.
LaBeouf was in Berlin to help promote Lars Von Trierís controversial film (which probably doesnít need any additional attention, but hey, the cast was willing to hang in BerlinÖ at least, temporarily). THR reports that LaBeouf was asked one question by a media member, something along the lines of what it was like acting in a movie that required so many sex scenes.
Because the film's distributors might actually want to screen a trailer in theaters, they had to figure out how to make a green-band trailer out of a movie stuffed to the brim with "too hot for TV" moments.
Letís expand on that a little bit to make sure the full story really sinks in here. Shia LaBeouf took out a camera (maybe the one on his phone, maybe not), took off his pants and snapped a picture of his dick. Then, after deciding said picture was good enough (maybe he took multiple?), he emailed the X-rated snapshot to producers
Berlin Film Festival will play host to the world premiere of to the director's cut version of Nymphomaniac: Volume 1. This is an intriguing new chapter in this provocative film's emerging development, as various cuts and concepts for release have been posed over the past two years.
A segment from "Chapter 7: The Mirror," this clip has the film's star Charlotte Gainsbourg cutting phone lines, taking down personal effects, covering mirrors and windows, and putting padding on just about any sharp corner in her apartment. Then she lays--fully clothed--on a stripped down bed. What is going on here?
Judging by the fact that you just clicked on an article about Nymphomaniac, I feel pretty comfortable in saying you probably fall into one of two camps.

The clip up top features the grown Joe with K (Bell), who she clearly shares in a sado-masochistic relationship with. Here he kindly presents her with a present, and wishes her a Happy Christmas. Perhaps less kind is the pet name he's given her: Fido. Nonetheless, Joe plays along albeit reluctantly. Picking up what appears to be a lash with her nickname scratched on it.
After a string of teasers and tawdry posters, Lars von Trier has released a trailer so graphic that it's shocking it hasn't been pulled by Youtube already. I mean, there's a close-up of female genitalia before the two-second mark. From there, there's arson, depravity, and lots and lots of nudity and sex.
Peter Aalbaek Jensen, von Trier's longtime producer, told Danish cinema magazine Filmmagasinet Ekko that the cut the iconoclast helmer turned in clocked in at a whopping 5 Ĺ hours. With the December world premiere of the film fast approaching, von Trier gave over his version to be cut down to a more manageable 4 hour cut that will be divided into two two-hour features.
