AceShowbiz - A newly-released trailer for "Tulip Fever" is too steamy for work. Making its way out online via Vanity Fair, the red band trailer features %cAlicia Vikander% and %cDane DeHaan% as on-screen love interests named Sophia and Jan, who get involved in a dangerous love affair.
The raunchy trailer opens with Jan being commissioned to paint Sophia's portrait by her much older husband, a rich merchant named Cornelis Sandwoort, played by %cChristoph Waltz%. "Put your brush to capture my wife," he tells Jan, who is later heard in voiceover gushing, "She has a rare beauty."
The approximately-2-minute video then shows some scenes featuring Jan and Sophia flirting with each other, before finally giving into their lust. "You've stolen my heart," the painter tells her, while she replies, "And you've stolen mine," as they're both taking their clothes off and caught in the middle of steamy sex.
The trailer also shows the two talking about running away together, but Sophia reminds Jan of her husband's power. "He will find us," she warns in voiceover, adding that her husband "will not stop looking for me unless I was dead."
The trailer comes after Page Six reported that Fox did not want the trailer to be shown on television because it was too racy. According to the site, the trailer for the R-rated film was approved by MPAA, but rejected by Fox. The Weinstein Company, which is producing the film, said they would not cut the offending scene from the footage.
Directed by Justin Chadwick from a script by Tom Stoppard, "Tulip Fever" is adapted from a best-selling novel by Deborah Moggach. The movie is coming to theaters across the nation on September 1. It also stars %cJudi Dench%, %cCara Delevingne%, %cZach Galifianakis%, %cJack O'Connell% and %cHolliday Grainger% among others.
