The Canyons Trailer: So What Happened When Lindsay Lohan, Bret Easton Ellis and a Porn Star Got Together?

The Canyons trailer was released on Tuesday (October 9, 2012), giving movie fans the first look at Lindsay Lohan and co-star James Deen in Bret Easton Ellis' grungy exploitation drama

.

The film has already garnered its fair share of controversy, partly for its content, but also for the fact that Mr Deen is best known for his day job, as an adult movie star. The trailer presents the film as a sort of cheap 1980s B-movie, though this is undoubtedly screenwriter Easton Ellis' and director Paul Schrader's intention. Plastered with taglines including "Where the sex is as cheap as the budget," the trailer is by no means a thing of beauty, though we're guessing this thing might just work. "This is not an adult film," adult star Deen told Animal NY earlier this year. "We are not trying to arouse people. If someone does get aroused, well, it happens. [...] It's not graphic sex for the sake of graphic sex. In the script you don't see anything like, 'You see [Lindsay's character] turn around and flash her boobs!"

The Canyons is yet to get an official release date and it's likely that several more trailers will hit the web in the coming weeks.
