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."

With that whole ugly (and blown out of proportion) Nazi comment controversy now behind him, Lars Von Trier can start focusing on his next film "The Nymphomaniac," and it looks like a regular player is coming back into the fold.

Well, this is a pleasant surprise on a Friday morning -- the first trailer for the new Lars Von Trier movie, the end-of-the-world drama, "Melancholia." Coming off the single most controversial film of his career, "Antichrist," the beginning of this clip, which has debuted at the film's official site (via @TimeOutFilm), might take fans of the unpredictable Danish helmer by surprise -- it strikes one as a rather conventional wedding-set drama, reminiscent of "Rachel Getting Married," or even Dogme classic "Festen."
