A Dangerous Method Trailer Lands
Michael Fassbender is forever Jung

A Dangerous Method Trailer Lands

David Cronenberg, a filmmaker who's spent his illustrious career examining the darker recesses of the human psyche, has found kindred spirits in A Dangerous Method's Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung. The pair - played on screen by Viggo Mortensen and man-of-the-moment Michael Fassbender - are up to their cerebral, tailsuited worst in pre-Great War Europe in the film's trailer. It's free for your perusal purposes below, courtesy of UK distributors Lionsgate.

A Dangerous Method
is Cronenberg's first since Eastern Promises four years ago and it's shaping up to be worth the wait. The birth of psychoanalysis and the Swiss professor's often bitter rivalry with his Austrian counterpart drive a narrative that also focuses on a damaging love triangle with the brittle, beautiful Sabina (Keira Knightley, pictured).



The movie is adapted from The Talking Cure, a stage play by Atonement and Dangerous Liaisons writer Christopher Hampton. Hampton's deft hand at period drama (Dangerous Liaisons bagged him an adapted screenplay Oscar), married with Cronenberg's unique vision and a gifted cast should make it required viewing.

A Dangerous Method hits the couch on February 10, 2012.

That's what I like about Keira Knightley, she always shags in her movies. And now spanking in thie one. He he. In the sequel, Freud meets a man who can tell people's futures by shaking their hands. More

Oh, she says 'initiative'. Disappointing. Still, the film looks good. More

Am I mistaken or did she say 'If you want to take me in the shitter, I'll be in that building'...or something to that affect. More

RE:
I cannot wait to see this. I thought that the subject area potentially could be fantastic on screen but this trailer has sealed the deal in terms of teasing me. Judging by the trailer, it seems like Knightley has given it her all. I'm not her biggest fan but it looks like an Oscar-y type performance. If she going up against Hathaway, Streep and Viola Davis next spring, then I'm guessing this kind of role might get her a nod. More
