Ask any cinephile about Lars von Trier, and you’ll be greeted with one of two responses. Either unrelenting admiration for the Danish scamp, or a long exhaled breath, followed by much eye-rolling. The Melancholia, Anti-Christ, and Nymphomanic filmmaker is one of the industry’s most divisive figures; a true provocateur, whose work is always worthy of discussion and examination.
Arriving online today is a rather peculiar image of von Trier, which is teasing his upcoming film The House That Jack Built. Starring Riley Keough, Matt Dillon, and Bruno Ganz, the film is due out in 2018, and focuses on a intelligent and prolific serial killer who operates in 1970s-1980s Washington.

This is such a Lars thing to do, and boy has it worked. You have our attention, and now we look forward to discovering more.
