Danish director's film leads to walkouts, outrage at Cannes

During a break in the film's production past year, the director - along with cast members Matt Dillon and Uma Thurman [VIDEO] - attended a press conference with regarding the details of the project. The House That Jack Built is an uncompromising, barbaric, distressing watch, and one very hard to stomach. But even by his standards, his latest movie, "The House That Jack Built", managed to alienate enough people to prompt more than 100 walkouts and simultaneous groans at its premiere at the Cannes Film Festival on Monday night. 'What can I say?

Cape Town - Seven years after being banned by the Cannes Film Festival, Lars Von Trier again caused a stir. I understand Hitler, ' he said.

The trailer, which alludes to the life of the killer and how he sees the world, is full of blood and gore - which only rattled the anxiety around the film's upcoming release.

Now, von Trier has been given permission to return to Cannes, and he's doing so with The House That Jack Built. His first victim is Uma Thurman's stranded road traveler (credited as "Lady 1"), an albeit annoying individual who insists that Jack take her to a nearby blacksmiths to weld back together the jack needed to fix her auto.

NES Classic Edition Coming Back To Store Shelves On June 29
Unlike the NES Classic , the SNES Classic bundles in two controllers so multiple players can participate straight out of the box. After months of immediately selling out whenever it came in stock, the NES Classic was discontinued by Nintendo in April 2017.

The film stars Matt Dillon, Bruno Ganz, Uma Thurman, Riley Keough, and David Bailie. "The House That Jack Built" will be viewed by the press today. Plus, Dillon's flowery narration induced some slight eye-rolling. And I do like several of von Trier's films, including Antichrist and Melancholia. The film debuts out of competition on May 14.

There's no official US release date yet, but IFC Films will distribute the film sometime this year.

In typical Von Trier fashion, and as he promised, the film is drenched in subtle brutality and blood as Matt Dillon's journey as Jack unfolds into a serial killer.

We learn very early on that Jack has committed at least 60 murders.
