Indie Trailer Sunday: Marko Zaror Stars in Chilean Film Mandrill
Cooler than Shaft, Hotter than Bond, Faster than Lee! Mandrill is a Chilean action film that I first saw at Fantastic Fest a few months ago (read my review). It's an awesome James Bond-like action movie but made on a shoestring budget with a badass Chilean action star named Marko Zaror. If you've seen Mirageman then you probably know who he is. But if not, this trailer will give you one hell of an introduction. He does all of his own stunts (which you'll see a lot of in the second half of this) and is very entertaining to watch. This trailer comes from our friends at Twitch (via SlashFilm) and includes English subtitles. Check it out!
Watch the trailer for Ernesto Díaz Espinoza's Mandrill:
Completing contracts with ruthless efficiency, Mandrill is always on the lookout for the man who killed his parents when he was a kid. When a contract comes up that looks like it may finally be the man responsible for killing his parents, Mandrill discovers that the only way to get him is through his daughter Dominic.
Mandrill is both written and directed by Chilean filmmaker Ernesto Díaz Espinoza, who wrote and directed Kiltro and Mirageman previously, both of which also starred Marko Zaror. This first premiered at Fantastic Fest in Austin, TX. It doesn't have a US distributor yet, but we expect it to hit theaters sometime in 2010.
