Preview:Franklyn

This little gem has been popping up all over the internet lately, and recently Rotten Tomatoes released and exclusive director interview to help flesh out the plot.

Synopsis from IMDB.com

FRANKLYN is about four lost souls, divided by two parallel worlds, on course for an explosive collision when a single bullet will decide all their fates.

This doesn’t sound like a typical action movie, until you hear about the character, specifically the Rorschach inspired Preest,

a masked vigilante detective, searching for his nemesis on the streets of Meanwhile City, a monolithic fantasy metropolis ruthlessly governed by faith and religious fervor. Esser (Hurt) is a broken man, searching for his wayward son amongst the rough streets of London’s homeless. Milo (Bettany) is a heartbroken thirty-something desperately trying to find a way back to the purity of first love. Emilia (Green) is a beautiful art student; her suicidal art projects are becoming increasingly more complex and deadly.


Here’s the link to the Rotten Tomatoes director exclusive.

I’ll probably check this one out, it sorta rocks to the same vibes as The Crow, Oldboy, and Dark City. Those are three of my favorite films, if anyone feels like discussing ’em.

  • Dark City is definitely an incredible film that goes largely unnoticed by a crowd that I think would love it like a Matrix film. Franklyn looks interesting and I’d like to know more about it, but the premise does sound totally great.

  • So I’m not the only one who noticecd that the matrix is basically Dark City with Robots.

  • This looks pretty interesting. I like these new previews you are doing, keep it up!
