Lindsay Lohan strips off in the trailer for her raunchy new film 'The Canyons'.

The 27-year-old actress is seen lounging around in her bra and knickers in the official promo for Paul Schrader's erotic noir thriller, in which Lindsay play Tara, ''a sensuous woman torn between two loves.''

The video kicks off with shots of a desolate-looking town, as Lindsay is heard saying: ''Okay, tell me something - do you really like movies? Really, really like movies?

''When was the last time you went to see a movie in the theatre, you know, a movie that you really felt meant something to you?

''I don't know, you know, I guess maybe it's just not my thing anymore.''

The redhead pouts her way through the melodramatic trailer, which shows her character struggling between two loves, played by porn star James Deen and Nolan Funk.

'The Canyons', scripted by 'American Psycho' author Bret Easton Ellis, was rejected from the 2013 South By Southwest Film Festival due to ''quality issues'', but will be released on August 2 in the US.

Director Paul has compared the troubled star to late screen siren Marilyn Monroe in a new interview with Film Comment magazine, revealing she brought ''tardiness, tantrums, absences, neediness, [and] psychodrama'' to set.

While he doesn't regret casting the actress in his movie, her co-star James was less complimentary, likening her behaviour to a ''child''.
