Minimalist Shame Teaser Poster Debuts
Michael Fassbender & Steve McQueen

07 October 2011  |  Written by Helen O'Hara  |  Source: The Hollywood Reporter

They both blew us away with hunger strike drama Hunger, and now director Steve McQueen and star Michael Fassbender are re-teaming for Shame, a story of sex addiction that's already won plaudits at the Venice Film Festival, where it premiered. And here's the teaser poster for the film, which is...suggestive rather than explicit, let's say.

Along with A Dangerous Method, in which he plays Carl Jung, this is the second of what we've dubbed Michael Fassbender's Sexy Crisis movies. This one sees him play a sex addict, with Carey Mulligan playing his sister. Since there's a lot of, well, sex and full-frontal nudity throughout, this is going to be a tough sell in the US especially, where it's likely to get an NC-17 rating, but the rave reviews should help it get noticed.

Shame is out in the UK on January 13, 2012, and will be playing during the London Film Festival, which starts next week.

Look closer....
I think i see something....... jeez it;s like one of those stereograms from the 90's. Is there actually anything there? sometimes I see something, and then I think "no, it's a funny colour to be, you know, it". Oh Lord this is taking up too much of my time. It;s like the Silence of the Lambs poster, only dirty. ;-) More

The Fast And The Fassbenders
This is a great time in Fassbender's career, he's doing challenging work that pushes the boundaries with a director he's comfortable with. Every actor prays for that. Enjoy it, mate. More

^ I initially thought that too, TheMadFatChickKiller, but if you look carefully, you can see a faint stain behind the title...they're clearly trying to be as tastefyl as possible with such a difficult subject matter and not put people off before seeing it. So it's a very subtle stain. More
