A full trailer has arrived for The Canyons, Paul Schrader and Bret Easton Ellis’ LA-set tale of struggling actors gone to seed, and it’s every bit as trashy as you’d expect.
The new film follows a group of twentysomething wannabes indulging in various love triangles and sex games, while sporadically attempting to crack the movie business.
There’s been a distinct whiff of car crash about the whole endeavour (not least from those on-set reports that emerged), and all eyes will be on Lindsay Lohan’s turn, which seems strangely disconnected throughout.
Take a look at the new trailer, below…
Bizarre in the extreme. Still, there’s something weirdly hypnotic about the whole endeavour, and porn star James Deen does seem to exude a sleazy charisma. Consider us intrigued, if slightly hesitant…
Directed by Schrader from a script by Ellis, The Canyons will open in the US on 2 August 2013, with a UK date to be confirmed.
