British actor Jamie Bell was thrown into filming for controversial movie Nymphomaniac so abruptly he never actually spoke to co-star Charlotte Gainsbourg before he started hitting her on camera.

Bell plays a sadistic dominator in Lars Von Trier's new movie, which explores the life of a sex addict, and he shot some aggressively explicit scenes of violent sexual encounters with lead actress Gainsbourg.

But the director's unusual methods meant the Billy Elliot star found himself in front of the camera with Gainsbourg before the two had even had a chance to say hello.

The actor tells Britai...

Romanian censors reverse ban on second Nymphomaniac film

January 31st, 2014 3:20am EST
Censors in Romania have reversed their decision to ban the second installment of Lars Von Trier's controversial new movie Nymphomaniac amid a drama which has cost the president of the nation's film rating commission his job.

The unnamed executive lost his title after labelling the Danish filmmaker's two-part project pornographic and agreeing that the movie was not fit for cinemagoers.

The film's Romanian distributors at Independenta Film appealed the decision and learned that the movie is now back on the release schedule for 7 February (14) as planned, with an 18-plus rating.

He joked in a video interview by the film's Zentropa Productions: "The first info we got - and I'll never forget this because my entire team reacted with such fear - the first request from the production end, not Lars, was for pictures of my penis."

Trailer Talk: This Week In Movies - 'Saw VI,' 'Vampire's Assistant' & More

Cirque du Freak
Last Tuesday, I had a chance to see "Where the Wild Things Are." Visually the film is stunning; it integrates handheld camera shots in the appropriate moments to take viewers into the action. Jim Henson's Creature Shop makes the monsters of the movie look incredibly convincing, and the composite animation of their faces matches up well.

Spike Jonze and Dave Eggers do a fantastic job of stretching a 10 page children's book into a movie that doesn't distort the message of the book, but still gives audiences something fresh. One of the most fascinating aspects of the creatures the hero M...
