“Nymphomaniac” is notorious for being one of the most sexually explicit movies of the year, but that’s not stopping New York’s Sunshine Cinema from letting babies attend screenings of the Lars Von Trier film … for free. The theater offers noon screenings so parents can bring their crying babies to the movies without getting the stank eye from other theatergoers. The website reads:
“The Sunshine Cinema welcomes caregivers and their babies on Wednesdays for our special Rattle & Reel screenings. Adults pay normal admission prices but all babies are FREE! Tickets available at the box office only on the day of show. Screening Wednesday, March 26 at 12:00 noon: Nymphomaniac Volume I. Screening Wednesday, April 2 at 12:00 noon: TBA”

This is my life: after every major awards show, I lie awake contemplating my feelings toward Taylor Swift. What we have is a love/hate relationship of epic proportions, that leaves me fighting an inner battle every time I see her on television. Do I cheer? Hiss? Pre-order her next album? Most of the time I just watch her with awe, annoyed that I’m so compelled by someone who bothers me so much. But she’s not the only celebrity who leaves me with conflicted feelings. Here’s a whole gaggle of stars we love to hate (and hate to love).
Shia LaBeouf is an even bigger plagiarist than we thought.
Earlier this week, the “Transformers” actor was revealed to have stolen the plot from a comic drawn by Daniel Clowes for a short film that debuted at Cannes and was screening on Vimeo. Now BuzzFeed has revealed that Shia stole from the poet Charles Bukowski and the author Benoit Deuteurtre in comics he himself has drawn. But that’s not all: his apologies on Twitter after getting caught for plagiarism were taken from Tiger Woods, Kanye West, and the politician Robert McNamara. Very funny. Haha. Keep reading »
We’ve heard titters about Shia LaBeouf’s “real sex” scenes in the new Lars Von Trier film “Nymph()manic.” Well, here they are in the very NSFW teaser for the film There are also some choir organs and baby cheetahs thrown in there as well, just to keep you guessing. As far as it all being “real” — it’s not exactly. Producer Louise Vesth explained how the sex scenes were filmed: “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 the below the waist it will be the doubles.”
So, it’s safe to assume that it was really Shia’s mouth doing all that work. Still, it’s more of Shia than I ever wanted to see. [Huffington Post] Keep reading »
To be honest, I hadn’t heard anything about “Charlie Countryman” that would make me want to see it, especially considering that star Shia LaBeouf both A) gives me the douchechills and B) reminds me of my ex-boyfriend. (These points may/may not be connected.) But man, I just watched the first trailer, and oh man it looks sooooo gooooood. Evan Rachel Wood is excellent with a thick Romanian accent, and even Shia seems like he may be redeeming himself as an American who falls for Wood’s musician character and follows her down the rabbit hole into a turbulent gangster-ridden underworld. Consider my interest piqued.
The new character posters for Lars Von Triers’ film “Nymphomanic” feature all the cast members naked, in various stages of orgasm. I never wanted to see Shia this way, but, all things considered, it could have been way worse. However, I won’t let my distaste for LeBeouf keep me from seeing the film, in which self-diagnosed nymphomanic Joe (played by Gainsbourg) confesses her sexcapades to the stranger who saves her after an attack. You can see the rest of the characters — including Christian Slater and Uma Thurman — giving O face here. [JoBlo]
