Premiering at the Sundance Film Festival in January, the latest from the prolific Michael Winterbottom didn't exactly win our man on the ground over (he called it "a shallow misfire"), but a swinging, Steve Coogan-starring trip into smut is still something many will be curious about. And this first clip from "The Look Of Love" seems to capture both the wit and other pleasures some might derive from the movie.

Imgoen Poots and Steve Coogan in THE LOOK OF LOVE

Premiering at the Sundance Film Festival in January, the latest from the prolific Michael Winterbottom didn't exactly win our man on the ground over (he called it "a shallow misfire"), but a swinging, Steve Coogan-starring trip into smut is still something many will be curious about. And this first clip from "The Look Of Love" seems to capture both the wit and other pleasures some might derive from the movie.

The picture is a biopic of the real life Paul Raymond, a pornographer, strip club owner and impresario who managed to accumulate a fortune of close to £650 million (or just over a billion dollars) after buying up property in the central London area of Soho. And it's all thanks to the skin trade, which as you'll see here, he as a pretty clear knack for. The rest of the cast is rounded up by some interesting faces including Imogen Poots as Raymond's daughter, Anna Friel as his wife and more.

"The Look of Love" opens in the UK on April 23rd and will come to the US via IFC Films later this year. Watch below.
