This Weekend, Experience the Bold and Dangerous World of 'Nymphomaniac' on VOD

While there's plenty to see in theaters this weekend (we've outlined three), the film you won't want to miss is Lars von Trier's "Nymphomaniac: Volume 1," and you can watch it from the comfort of home. It arrived on VOD Thursday before hitting theaters on March 21. Also arriving this weekend is another auteur output, Wes Anderson's "The Grand Budapest Hotel," as well as indie thriller "Grand Piano" and macho action spectacle "300: Rise of an Empire."

Berlin: What Shia LaBeouf Said Before He Stalked Out of the 'Nymphomaniac' Press Conference (UPDATED)

During the press conference for “Nymphomaniac Volume 1 (Long Version),” screened at the Berlin Film Festival Sunday, Shia LaBeouf sat silently and oh-so-mysteriously with a cap down over his eyes. When a journalist asked him and Stacy Martin about their sex scenes – how much preparation did they have, was it difficult, etc., LaBeouf directed Martin to go first.

WATCH: Charlotte Gainsbourg Gets Fiery in New Trailer for Lars von Trier's 'Nymphomaniac' Volume 2

While Lars von Trier's considerably comedic "Nymphomaniac" Volume 1 recently played Sundance, the second installment in the sex addiction epic looked to be more dramatic (based on preview footage in the final credits for Volume 1). Now, a new international trailer has arrived for Volume 2, and, based on a montage set to "Burning Down the House," it seems von Trier's wicked humor may still be in place.

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.
