WATCH: The Impressive New Trailer For Lindsay Lohan’s Movie, “The Canyons”

Lindsay Lohan’s latest film, The Canyons, just released an interesting new trailer thats bound to (finally) get people excited. After the first two campy trailers made many who donated money to the Bret Easton Ellis project (and causal observers) fearful this was just going to be another failed comeback for the troubled actress, this is a welcome surprise. While it is still unclear what the end result will be, it finally has a premiere date set for August 2nd in theaters and video on demand. (Lohan fans aching to get their fill of the actress should be sure to get their viewing parties ready for the first weekend of August.)

For those unfamiliar with the film, it tells the story of a “calculating young movie producer Christian (James Deen) who makes films to keep his trust fund intact, and his actress girlfriend, Tara (Lindsay Lohan), who tries to hide an affair with an actor from her past. However, Christian discovers the truth and the couple is soon thrust into a violent, sexually-charged tour through the dark side of human nature.” More info at IndieWire.

    It could be the best film ever made– it wouldn’t matter. People are never going to give her a chance to get well and move on. The public gets off on watching her fail.

    She needs to work on herself first.
    She is still a very troubled woman.
    It’s sad that Hollywood keeps giving her parts just to exploit the yellow journalism fodder that follows her around.

  • tardis

    I can’t believe porn stars are acting in mainstream film now. Crazy.

  • boring

    Oh hey, this actually looks like a MOVIE now.

    Schrader deserves a hit, but he is such an out-and-out maniac that I don’t think he’ll ever get one.

    How is this gay?

    @Fitz: Please, she is a has been dlist former child actor, she was joke pretending to be Liz Taylor and that Lifetime mess and the drama of her personal life is totally her doing and only serves to feed her ego and need for constant attention. She will leave rehab, promote this garbage then jump back on the crazy train and back in trouble with the law in no time. She is nothing more then a bad circus act at this point.

    @tardis: James Deen is very cute. He has a look that makes his transfer easy.

    I think it’s more sad that porn stars have a far better work ethic than Hollywood stars… (per Cam’s link above).

    I read an article where Labradors in Los Angeles are getting lip enhancements. Labrador lips are the cutest, so who would want to implant them with silicone? Humans are weird enough, but when they want to make their dogs’ lips, “fuller” that’s where I cringe.

    @yaoming:

    Lohan has had a same sex relationship.

    If you don’t feel this site is gay enough for you, please start your own and you can post whatever you like.

    @1EqualityUSA……………..wtf???? Who the freak cares about Labrador lips???!!

    @Homophile: FAIL. LiLo interview with Piers Morgan:

    Morgan: Do you think you’re bisexual?

    Lohan: Not really. I like being in a relationship with a guy. But there’s something just different about it with a woman. When I was with Samantha (Ronson), I didn’t want to leave, because I didn’t want to be alone. It was very toxic. And her family controlled anything she did.

    Morgan: Were you in love with her?

    Lohan: I still love her as a person.

    Morgan: But were you IN love with her?

    Lohan: I think there was a point when I was.

    Morgan: So you’re probably straight?

    Lohan: No, I know I’m straight. I have made out with girls before, and I had a relationship with a girl. But I think I needed to experience that and I think I was looking for something different.

    This trailer is hiding behind glitz and music. There’s no hiding that she looks like a trainwreck and acts like a trainwreck. It isn’t that hard to make a terrible movie look good in a minute. The writers have done amazing movies. But they probably recognize that this movie has been a travesty since the beginning and the only reason they haven’t scrapped it is because of all the donations they took in.

    @s312g:
    Correction: Ellis is quoted as saying: “The film is so languorous. It’s an hour 30, and it seems like it’s three hours long. I saw this as a pranky noirish thriller, but Schrader turned it into, well, a Schrader film.”

    I’m surprised that some people still seem to think she can act. If you watch her movies, she pretty much plays the same character in all of them. Same tones, same facial expressions, same everything.

    She is basically Tara Reid with better boobs and a worse drug habit.

  • GeriHew

    @Spike: MASSIVE FAIL

    Homophile said Lohan had a same-sex relationship. And she did.

    “It was very toxic” – Is that even really Lindsay talking? Sounds just like her father.
