In the works for about a year now, you may have missed the announcement, Wim Wenders' next feature film is now in front of cameras in the lovely city of Montreal. In addition to the previously revealed James Franco, the picture also bolstered its cast with Charlotte Gainsbourg and Marie-Josée Croze. Now another actress has joined the picture, and one that makes the project all the more enticing.

With all the hoopla surrounding the impressive TIFF and Venice lineups, we kind of totally forgot the movie very, very high on our must-see list for this year (should it actually hit theaters on our shores by the end of 2013), Lars Von Trier's sex epic "Nymphomaniac." Those words alone — nymphomaniac, Lars, sex, Von, epic, Trier — should be all you need to know to buy a ticket, but the marketing slow roll has been building up buzz and questionable erections.

Oh, Lars! Even though the provocateur won't be at the Cannes Film Festival this year (it's cool, whenever he's ready he'll be welcomed back), the first poster for Lars Von Trier's upcoming "Nymphomaniac" will surely get some amazing attention on the sales/marketing floor on the Croisette.

Things are going very well for Lea Seydoux. After having a very short appearance in the opening of Quentin Tarantino’s “Inglourious Basterds” -- she played one of the daughters of the French farmer Christoph Waltz interrogates -- Seydoux appeared in the films of Ridley Scott and Woody Allen, and she recently added Wes Anderson to her list of auteurs with her role in his upcoming “The Grand Budapest Hotel” (and as the star of the Anderson and Roman Coppola co-directed Prada ads). The French actress, however, hasn’t forgotten about her homeland as she’s set to join Benoit Jacquot’s “Three Hearts” ("Trois coeurs") alongside two other French stars.

With winter's chill still felt, the spring might seem far away, and while we will have our attention on the Berlin International Film Festival and SXSW in March, we're only a few months away from the Cannes Film Festival. Easily the most prestigious movie festival on the calendar, we'll soon start to see talk heat up about what films will -- and won't -- be making an appearance. And while Lars von Trier's hugely buzzed "Nymphomaniac" has been grabbing headlines in recent days as buyers swarm the movie in Berlin, it won't be headed to the Cannes for a premiere like many speculated. But not for the reason you're thinking of.

Lars von Trier has a new movie. It's called "Nymphomanaic." And basically, if you're any sort of cinephile, that is all you need to know for this one to be way, way up on your list of anticipated films of 2013.

It's getting on two years since Lars Von Trier made headlines around the world with his ill-advised comments at the Cannes Film Festival, while promoting his film 'Melancholia," comments which saw Von Trier deemed 'persona non grata' at the festival in future. Von Trier's been relatively quiet ever since (even swearing off press altogether), but that's surely about to change, with his two-part new film "Nymphomaniac" on the way before the year is out.

Lars Von Trier has never been short on balls. His career has been filled with films that have found the director walking right into a hornets nest of thorny issues, whether it's slavery ("Manderlay"), the American empire ("Dogville"), feminism (sorta) ("Antichrist"), depression ("Melancholia"), faith ("Breaking The Waves") or just plain ol' "spazzing" ("The Idiots"), and so doing a movie about sex seems like the logical next step. But of course, his appraoch is never as simple as those reductive summaries suggest, and the resulting works are always controversial, exasperating, overreaching, brilliant and fascinating -- often all at once. And once again, Lars Von Trier is stepping beyond expectations.

Women have never had it easy in Lars Von Trier's films, which is maybe why he's had such a hard time keeping a consistent leading lady. And despite slicing off her clitoris in "Antichrist" and losing her shit as the world ends in "Melancholia," the director has found a muse of sorts in Charlotte Gainsbourg who signed on for the lead in December in his most provocative film yet, "Nymphomanic."
