After a summer of Barbie and Oppenheimer, we’ve now got the next Elvis star w**king in a bathtub.
Directed by Emerald Fennell, the R-rated film also stars Barry Keoghan, Rosamund Pike and Richard E. Grant.
Released more widely in cinemas tomorrow (22 November) the IMDb synopsis for Saltburn reads: “A student at Oxford University finds himself drawn into the world of a charming and aristocratic classmate, who invites him to his eccentric family's sprawling estate for a summer never to be forgotten.”
Listed as a ‘black comedy psychological thriller’ the film contains some pretty wild, explicit, erotic scenes.
There’s naked dance numbers and Keoghan nude humping the ground of a cemetery.
Yeah, like I said, wild.
And one particular bit already shocking the internet has Elordi masturbating in a bathtub.
But wait for it, after watching, Keoghan licks up his ‘c*m’.
It’s probably worth me clarifying here that these are things their characters do, not just a bit of a laugh they were having on set.
Speaking about the semen scene, the Euphoria star told Variety: “I was like, ‘Thank God, it’s mine.’ I was very proud. I was very proud to have Barry Keoghan guzzling it like that.”
And Keoghan kept up the joke in his response: “He doesn’t text me back or ring me back.
“It’s so weird. He’s pretending to like me. It’s weird, man.”
You can actually see the star dropping down to his knees to do the deed in the bath during the trailer. Lovely.
Unsurprisingly, this scene alone has given viewers quite the shock - if they weren’t already used to the film’s wildness by that point anyway.
One wrote on X: “The bath scene in #Saltburn is going to haunt me for a week.”
Another warned: “Barry Keoghan delivers one of his best performances, and completely commits to the role.
“The film didn’t really do much for me until we arrived to #SALTBURN, that’s where all the incredibly jaw dropping disgusting stuff happens & will leave a lot of people talking….”
A third echoed: “This is not a film to watch with older relatives. There’s a couple of shocking scenes & the 2nd one (at a grave) is likely to cause offence.
“I was like ‘you’re not going there are you?? You’re not… you’re not….. oh sh*t YOU ARE!!’”
But others asked if it was ‘really necessary’.
