The Playlist posted pictures from the trailer and the trailer, which apparently will only screen in the UK. The film Salomé was shown in Venice in 2011 but is just now getting released. From the website:

“Salomé: At a birthday feast for King Herod (Al Pacino), his stepdaughter, princess Salome (Jessica Chastain) discovers the imprisoned John the Baptist and is immediately infatuated with him. Rebuffed by the prisoner, Salome entices her lecherous stepfather with the promise of completing the erotic Dance of the Seven Veils, if the King will grant her one wish. Herod agrees to any wish in order to have his desire sated. Following the dance, Salome demands the head of John the Baptist. Herod offers her anything but that, and Salome stubbornly refuses to change her wish. Realising his attempt to change her mind is futile, Herod reluctantly orders the beheading and shortly thereafter orders the death of his stepdaughter.

Wilde Salomé: In this unique documentary, Director/star Al Pacino takes us on a personal journey as he unravels and re-interprets Oscar Wilde’s once banned and most controversial work SALOME, a scintillating tale of lust, greed and one woman’s scorn. Using a mix of documentary, fiction and improvisation, the viewer gets a rare look inside the mind of one our greatest (and most unique) actors.”
