Ladies and gentleman, behold Michael Fassbender's Oscar bid, Shame. The German actor, who's been blazing the big screen a lot this year in films like X-Men: First Class, plays Brandon, a sex-crazed New Yorker whose lifestyle comes to question when his sister Sissy (Carey Mulligan) pays him a visit.
The underrated Nicole Beharie (American Violet) stars as one of Brandon's many sexual conquests. The trailer looks very sexy, save for Mulligan (who doesn't really have that 'come hither' look about her). Director Steven McQueen (Hunger, and the upcoming Twelve Years a Slave starring Chiwetel Ejiofor) looks like he really managed to put together a beautifully arousing movie. Check out the trailer below, which has a very American Psycho feel to it. Shame opened to raves at various film festivals earlier this year, and is scheduled to hit theaters December 2.
