'Nymphomaniac Director's Cut' to Get Global Bow

The extra-long version of Lars Von Trier's erotic epic will go out day-and-date in multiple countries

The director’s cut of Lars von Trier’s erotic epic Nymphomaniac will go out day-and-date across multiple platforms in several territories.

On Oct. 2, the five-and-a-half-hour cut of the film will bow theatrically, on VOD and at special festival events across North America, as well as in several European countries including Spain, the Netherlands, Poland, the Czech Republic and in Von Trier’s native Denmark.

Denmark is the only territory where the extra-long version of Nymphomaniac has been released theatrically. Elsewhere, the film was cut into two shorter films: Vol.1 and Vol.2. Von Trier’s director’s cut of Nymphomaniac Vol.1 debuted at the Berlin Film Festival this year, while his cut of Vol.2 bowed in Venice earlier this month.

The film, the story of a self-diagnosed nymphomaniac, features Charlotte Gainsbourg and Stellan Skarsgard in an all-star ensemble cast that also includes Stacy Martin, Shia LaBeouf, Uma Thurman and Willem Dafoe.
