First Look: "Shame"

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.

This movie is stellar, and Fassbender is amazing in it. I wonder if the whole thing might be too low-boil for Oscar voters though.

Looking' forward to reading your thoughts on it when it drops!

I really liked the trailer. Almost as much as I loved My Week with Marilyn trailer.

Wow, this is a great trailer. I can't wait to see the film! Fassbender is on fire these days.

I don't blame Searchlight for waiting so long but I really want to see this as well.

Saw this at TIFF and it's better than American Psycho. More austere and subtle despite the full frontal. Not saying that full frontal is bad...

The trailer is quite bold, yet not vulgar and I like that. Sex might be a huge part of the movie, but they don't use it to sensationalize the trailer which to me means they are confident that they have a good film.
