Following a grindhouse-esque teaser for the next work from Paul Schrader (Taxi Driver, Raging Bull) and American Psycho‘s Bret Easton Ellis, they’ve now delivered another gimmicky look, giving us a 1950′s Hollywood trailer with more new footage.

The Canyons will be released next year.

In the case of evaluating David Cronenberg, — or at least forming the sort of career narrative seemingly essential to auteurist analysis — it’s inevitable to propose something of a rupture within his oeuvre: the very evident graduation from grindhouse to arthouse, and, with it, an ascension from body to mind. What dictated these labels […]
