Venus In Furs
Of late, Roman Polanski has been taking inspiration from stage. His last feature film, "Carnage," was based on an award-winning play, while his forthcoming "Venus In Fur" is also ripped from the boards, adapting the work of David Ives. After premiering at the Cannes Film Festival last year the picture is finally making its way to U.S. theatres, and a new trailer is here to show you what the filmmaker has in store.

Venus In Furs
While it might seem every major festival film from the year thus far has been accounted for, we nearly forgot about Roman Polanski's "Venus In Fur." Premiering at Cannes this past spring, it has since kept a low profile, skipping Telluride, Toronto and New York altogether. But with a release in France around the corner, some more attention is now focused back on the film.

We're now less than a week away from the Cannes Film Festival rolling out the red carpet, and among the heavy hitters making their way to the Croisette will be none other than Roman Polanski. He's returning with another modest, character driven, largely one location movie and something that appears to be even smaller than "Carnage."

It seems these days Roman Polanski has a thing for plays. Last year he brought "Carnage" to the big screen, an adaption of Yasmin Reza's acclaimed "God Of Carnage," and while he's flirted with a couple of projects since then including "D", about the Dreyfuss Affair, and a period movie about aging, his next effort is another big screen version of a stage production.
