UK Trailer for Abel Ferrara’s Scandal-Ready WELCOME TO NEW YORK

welcome to new york

Check out the not safe for work UK trailer for Abel Ferrara’s controversial Welcome to New York starring powerhouse performances from Gerard Depardieu and Jacqueline Bisset.

No U.S. release date yet, but the next film from Ferrara (Bad Lieutenant) will arrive early next month in the U.K.and for the occasion a new trailer has arrived, providing our best look yet at the loose retelling of the case involving IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn and the events that transpired at the Sofitel Hotel in New York City.

Ferrara’s scandal-ready flick was received with warm reviews after appearing out of competition at Cannes and at the Edinburgh International Film Festival.

Pretty hard to tell from the trailer, but it may be worth a look. See for yourself.

Welcome to New York is the story of Mr Devereaux (Gerard Depardieu); a powerful man who controls billions of dollars every day. A man who controls the economic fate of nations. A man who dreams of saving the world and who cannot save himself. A terrified man. A lost man. Watch him fall.
