Lars von Trier’s Nymphomaniac opens in Denmark on Christmas Day, because there’s no better day to watch a two-part, four-hour movie about hardcore sexuality than Christmas. Sadly, Stateside audiences will have to wait a little longer to see von Trier’s new movie, but at least we now have the exact dates for its full, uh, release.
Magnolia Pictures will bring Nymphomaniac to the United States in two parts next spring. Nymphomaniac: Part One premières on VOD on March 6 and opens in theaters on March 21. Part Two hits VOD on April 3 and theaters on April 18. Which just so happens to be Good Friday. Oh Lars, you scamp.
The press release says both Nymphomaniacs contain “graphic depictions of sexuality to a degree unprecedented in a mainstream feature film” and reiterates von Trier’s vow after his last film, Melancholia, to stop doing press interviews and let his work speak for itself. And only, apparently, on Christian holidays.
