New Trailer For 'The Canyons' Shows Lindsay Lohan's Attempt At Social Commentary

Lindsay Lohan’s upcoming movie (it’s been a long time since those words were last put together) is fast approaching its August 2nd release date and the movie gods have finally graced us with a trailer to mark the occasion. The trailer for 'The Canyons' opens with a gloomy voiceover of Lohan’s character, Tara, waxing on about the movie going experience, over footage of abandoned theatres, only to transition into a dreamlike sequence of Tara’s party girl lifestyle.

Does this signify the return of Lindsay Lohan?

If the neon montage of Lohan and co-star James Deen is anything to go by, the film looks set to follow in the footsteps of previous hits "Spring Breakers" and "The Bling Ring" – in that it uses fast editing and shock inducing music to put a pretty package over its attempts at scathing social commentary. How much of that will work for "The Canyons" remains to be seen.

In the mean time, check out the trailer below to make up your own mind.

With a script by Brett Easton Ellis ("Less Than Zero," "American Psycho") it’s hard to imagine that this movie could be anything less than great. Let’s be honest though – most of us are just really excited to see Lindsay Lohan back on screen. And a movie, which boasts debauchery, boredom, indifference and a futile strive for privacy, sounds close enough to what we know of LiLo’s real life to get us thoroughly invested in the plot of "The Canyons".
