First 'Nymphomaniac' Clip: Seduction on a Train

Lars von Trier's buzzy erotic epic also stars Shia LaBeouf and Uma Thurman, among others.

The first teaser for Lars von Trier's buzzy erotic drama Nymphomaniac has been released online, and it's branded with the auteur's distinctive style of yellow-tinted scenery and an unvarnished, at times unsettling, naturalism that hooks you even though you might want to look away.

Billed as an "appetizer" from the first of eight chapters of Nymphomaniac, the scene features Stacy Martin as a younger version of Joe (Charlotte Gainsbourg) embarking on a mission to seduce a fellow passenger aboard a train.

The sexually explicit film, slated to premiere Dec. 25 in Copenhagen, drew even more attention when von Trier released a porn-inspired cast photo in May, featuring a plethora of stars (including Shia LaBeouf, Uma Thurman and Willem Dafoe) in compromising positions.
