In the new trailer for the upcoming NC-17 thought-provoking sex-fest Shame, Michael Fassbender sits on a New York subway train and stares at an attractive lady. Metaphorically, he seems to be staring at the entire female human race. It’s almost as if he’s saying, “Hello, ladies! Look at your man. Now back at Fassbender. Now back at your man. Now back at Fassbender! Sadly, he’s not Fassbender. He will never be Fassbender. He will never class up a superhero prequel. He will never speak every language fluently. He will never make Carl Jung look sexy. He will never derive artistic inspiration from Greg Louganis. There is only one Fassbender, and that is me.” Additionally, there is lots of nudity, some of it Fassbender-related. Watch the trailer:
