WATCH: Shia Labeouf Gets Devious in New Clip from Lars Von Trier's 'Nymphomaniac'

Check out this humorous new "appetizer" clip from Lars Von Trier's upcoming two-part film "Nymphomaniac," starring Shia Labeouf and Charlotte Gainsbourg. No, we don't yet get any peeks at Labeouf's nether regions (though they're freely on display in Sigur Ros' "Fjogur piano"), but we do hear him try out a Brit accent, and see his character Jerome's rather devious attempt at getting a comely new employee alone in an elevator.

Oscar-Bound Cate Blanchett Talks Woody Allen's 'Blue Jasmine' (EXCLUSIVE VIDEO)

The Best Actress Oscar is Cate Blanchett's to lose. As she says in our flip cam interview below, many movies with strong female performances will come before the end of the year, but right now her role in Woody Allen's "Blue Jasmine" towers over the rest so far, amid a summer season suffering from a lack of women's roles.
