Nymphomaniac Might get Director's Cut Eventually
Since the beginning of 2013, the complicated ad-campaign for Lars von Trier's newest film Nymphomaniac is underway. And while it is light on traditional measures such as trailers, posters and publicity events, it generates a lot of buzz through the continuing back and forth between hardcore, softcore, long versions, especially long versions, extraordinarily long versions, two films, one film, a TV format, real sex, fake sex and sex scenes that merge two bodies in a never-before-seen way.
And after it seemed that this turmoil might clear up recently (see news), the situation looks more complicated and uncertain once more.
Instead of bringing a theatrical version with a duration of 4 hours that includes hardcore scenes and is divided into 2 films while a Director's Cut with more than 5 hours would no longer be planned, it is now communicated that the DC is a valid option again, even though it would definitely come out later next year.
This Christmas, the 4-hour version hits Danish cinemas. It has hardcore scenes, doesn't have the director's blessing, was made by the producer and is divided into 2 films with a 2-hour runtime each. This version is scheduled for release in the US (part 1 in March, part 2 in April), both theatrically and as Video on Demand. It seems likely that it is released unrated or with an NC-17 rating. Whether it has to deal with censorship is not yet clear.
Some time in 2014, the different distributors in the rest of the world will have the possibility to get their hands on the Director's Cut, which is also divided into 2 parts (2.5 + 3 hours).
