WATCH: the unsurprisingly NSFW trailer for Lars von Trier's Nymphomaniac

The extremely Not Safe For Work trailer for Lars von Trier's Nymphomaniac has just landed, with plenty of nudity and a splash of violence for good measure. There's even hints of explicit sexual nature, although this could just be an effect of clever editing and camera trickery.

The film stars Charlotte Gainsbourg as Joe, the titular nymphomaniac (or 'sex addict', as Joe's group therapy leader corrects her), whose life is laid bare after she is found beaten in an alley by Seligman (Stellan Skarsgård). Gainsbourg and Skarsgård are just two names in what is an impressively starry cast for such explicit subject matter, with Shia LaBeouf, Christian Slater, Jamie Bell, Willem Dafoe and Uma Thurman among the supporting cast.

Von Trier uncharacteristically surrendered the final cut of the movie after finding it impossible to trim it down from five and a half hours. The version scheduled for a Copenhagen premiere on Christmas Day this year (because von Trier is nothing if not a stickler for Christmas values) will consist of two two-hour instalments. Nymphomaniac is subsequently set for release in the UK on Fri 7 Mar 2014.
