Illustration for article titled Lars von Triers movie emNymphomaniac/em puts the SFX in sex

When you finally get to see the graphic sexual content of cinematic auteur Lars von Trier's upcoming film Nymphomaniac, you need to know that's not really Shia La Boeuf graphically fucking Charlotte Gainsbourg. It's half of him, thanks to some completely insane VFX.

Via The Hollywood Reporter:

...Nymphomaniac producer Louise Vesth provided a sneak peak into what we can expect. Vesth confirmed that the doubled-barreled feature will include graphic sex scenes between the members of the all-star cast including Charlotte Gainsbourg, Stellan Skarsgard, Shia LaBeouf and Uma Thurman.

For the truly hard core elements of the film von Trier used body doubles for the stars. But, Vesth revealed, the Danish director will use digital technology to superimpose the actor's non-explicit displays with the pornographic performance of the doubles.

“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,” Vesth explained. “So above the waist it will be the star and the below the waist it will be the doubles.”


My condolences to everyone who was looking forward to seeing Shia's Boeuf-log.
