SHOWGIRLS 2: It's real, and the trailer is NSFW batshit insane.

SHOWGIRLS 2: It's real, and the trailer is NSFW batshit insane.

Last fall, word started to spread on the interwebs that an unknown German director named Marc Vorlander was planning to make a sequel to Showgirls, the Paul Verhoeven's 1995 trashterpiece, beloved by some but dismissed by many as one of the worst films of all time. In October, Vorlander confirmed and even defended the project as, like, art. "I take Showgirls very seriously!" Vorlander told The Stranger, promising that his German-language "reload of the Showgirls theme" would deliver "more nudity. Brutal action. A great soundtrack. A bold style that never was before."

Now there is a full trailer for the film on its website and, um, he wasn't kidding about the nudity.

If you are not supposed to look at extended girl-on-girl scenes and

general boobery at the office, you probably shouldn't click the link --

the trailer plays full-screen, and if there's a pause button, I couldn't

find it.

And while those hoping for an Elizabeth Berkeley-Gina Gershon reunion

(or further class-based comedy derived from the correct

pronunciation of Versace) will be disappointed, Showgirls 2

-- which looks as though it was mostly shot on the video setting of a

consumer digital camera -- does seem to offer an excess of old-school

low-budge sexploitation fantasia. Which means your mileage will likely

vary according to your tolerance for Euro-camp and easy irony. And boobs.
