Sex. Sex sex sex. It doesn’t matter how many times we say it, it’s still going to make the headlines. And that’s partly why Nymphomaniac – Lars Von Trier’s upcoming film – has been such hot news: it delves into the risqué subject with alacrity and gusto.

The film has also made the news due to the fact that Von Trier is a bit weird.
He makes Nazi jokes that no one gets and is banned from Cannes. He’s an oddball, but his films are truly original, and there’s little reason to suggest Nymphomaniac won’t be just as amazing as Melancholia and Antichrist.
And as if the raunchy new movie needed any more press – LaBeouf’s ‘real’ coitus scenes in the film certainly drew crowds, not literally – 14 posters have been released - 12 grace this page - featuring the film’s stars acting out their climax faces. Apart from Shia LeBeouf who smokes a cigarette with his hair slicked back.

Obviously still angry about Orphans. Our favourites include Jamie Bell, who looks like he’s getting a wax; Mia Goth, because we love a bit of industry, and she’s really getting stuck in, and, obviously, Udo Kier, because there’s something beautifully disgusting about his poster.
Our least favourite is LeBeouf because we find his poster abhorrent.
Earlier this year, producer Louise Vesth revealed that the drama will feature "groundbreaking" unsimulated sex scenes. THAT MEANS REAL, GUYS. PORN.

She explained: "We shot the actors pretending to have sex and then had the body doubles, who really did have sex, and in post we will digital-impose the two. So above the waist it will be the star and below the waist it will be the doubles." Right so it’s sort of fake. (The Mirror)
