Trailer Park: Lindsay Lohan's 'The Canyons'

Lindsay Lohan may be in rehab, but the promotional machine behind "The Canyons" is chugging right along.

IFC Films has released a trailer for the August 2 feature, which has been endlessly chronicled for some of the drama LiLo brought to the set.

The Los Angeles-based thriller follows a group of 20-somethings on their quest to find "power, love, sex and success in 2012 Hollywood." Lohan portrays Tara, a wannabe actress who isn't so sure about the film business - maybe seeing movies in a theater just isn't her "thing" anymore, as Lohan's voiceover laments in the trailer.

Cue James Deen's Christian, Tara's boyfriend and "producer" who apparently makes movies right out of his own home, equipped with nothing more than his cell phone's camera. As you can imagine, the trailer takes a decidedly more suggestive turn from there.

"The Canyons" was written by Bret Easton Ellis and directed by Paul Schrader, who recently wrote in FilmComment that having Lohan involved in the project was worth the "tardiness, unpredictability, tantrums, absences, neediness and psychodrama."

"[F]rom my point of view, it was a treat to work with Lindsay," Schrader said. "All the drama ... all the stress - that means little. A director can shoot around misbehavior. He can’t shoot around lack of charisma."

"The Canyons" will be released on August 2, which the trailer notes you can either watch in "select theaters, or in the privacy of your own home."

    Sarah Palin

    Evangelicals
    Conservatives
    Hillbillies
    Semi Automatic assault weapons
    nascar
    Double-wides
    Everclear
    Incest
    Confederate Flags
    Boss Hogg

    You can either watch in "select theaters" (i.e., released on fewer than 100 screens for about a week) or in the privacy of your own home (meaning it's pretty much a straight to DVD release), both being earmarks of a "quality" production.

    I'll pass.
