Lars von Trier returns.
Danish director Lars von Trier is no stranger to controversy and attention baiting when it comes to his films and the hullabaloo that surrounds them. Everything from his infamous Hitler ramblings at Cannes in 2011 to the crazed stories of open hostility he has on set with his actors (the stuff that happened between him and Bjork on the set of Dancer in The Dark is the stuff of madness), von Trier loves to make himself known whether you like it or not. And now we finally have a follow-up from him on his near 4 hour sex epic Nymphomaniac with a horror/thriller titled The House That Jack Built, which tells the story of a man named Jack (Matt Dillon) and how he eventually became a serial killer. Take a look at the trailer:
The film is making its premiere at the Cannes Film Festival today and even though no word has come up on its release in the United States, it has been reported that IFC will hold the rights. Here’s hoping we hear about a release date soon.
