Excitement for ‘The Canyons’ Amps Up With a Tantalizing New Poster

For quite some time now, we’ve all been anxiously awaiting the release of Paul Schrader and Bret Easton Ellis’ biting erotic psychodrama, The Canyons. And next week, the film Schrader has dubbed “cinema for the post-theatrical era” will finally hit theaters and VOD for your viewing satisfaction on August 2nd. 

Last week, I got the chance to chat with Schrader about bringing the provocative, simmering film to life—but more on that later. And now that we’ve seen a proper trailer for the feature, IFC has released a new poster that highlights the sordid and fantastically dramatic nature of the film with its star Lindsay Lohan and the two male figures of the film James Deen and Nolan Funk haunting alongside. 
 
The official synopsis reads:
While calculating young movie producer Christian (Deen) makes films to keep his trust fund intact, his actress girlfriend, Tara (Lohan), hides an affair with an actor from her past. But Christian becomes aware of her infidelity, which leads the young Angelenos into a violent, sexually-charged tour through the dark side of human nature. 
So take a look back at the latest trailer for The Canyons, see the new poster below, and check back here next week for our interview with Schrader.
