Franklyn Posters

A late night poster delivery for the neo-noir sci-fi thriller Franklyn. Thanks to BadTaste.it, we've got a first look at a few new Italian posters for the film, which hits theaters in Italy in April, and in the UK in February. As for when it will ever arrive here in America, who knows? It doesn't even have a US distributor yet, which at this point with this much early buzz, is a bit ridiculous, but I'm sure we'll know more soon. Anyway, these two posters are still pretty damn cool. For those curious, the text in Italian reads: "Tonight I'm going to kill a man." I'm amazed you can even write that on a poster, but alas, the MPAA doesn't exist in Europe.

If anyone in Italy or the UK catches Franklyn when it opens in the next few months, let us know! And if you write an early review, we'll publish it if it's good! I'm anxious to hear some real feedback on Franklyn.

Preest is 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 is a broken man, searching for his wayward son amongst the rough streets of London's homeless. Milo is a heartbroken thirty-something desperately trying to find a way back to the purity of first love. Emilia is a beautiful art student; her suicidal art projects are becoming increasingly more complex and deadly.

Franklyn is both written and directed by Gerald McMorrow, who is making his directorial debut after writing and directing a sci-fi short in 2002 called Thespian X. The film already premiered at the London Film Festival last year, but doesn't have a US distributor yet. Hopefully it will find one soon, because it's already due out in theaters in England next month. Stay tuned for more on Franklyn in 2009!

"I'm amazed you can even write that on a poster, but alas, the MPAA doesn't exist in Europe." The US poster for Taken has the words "I will kill you" on it.

Those are European posters in English. There are no posters for the U.S. because there is no distribution for the U.S., yet.

Yea, I couldn't tell if you were in support of the posters but not the movie. I like the posters, but I'm on the fence about the movie. What are you opinions on this flick, Alex? Will it rise or be a sleeper hit?

Wow. I Like that poster on the left a lot. I remember seeing the trailer and being a bit skeptical. I'm excited to hear how it is though

Nick - I have no clue, that's exactly what I'm waiting to find out! That's why I want to hear some feedback from people in Europe who get the chance to see this... If I start hearing really good things, maybe with the right distributor, it could do well. I have a feeling it could be a sleeper hit, but without any support, it'll become a cult classic before we even know it.

I'm sorry to report that this film is pretty bad. It reminds me of a poor-man's V for Vendetta. Even Eva Green looks a touch to 'goth' to be attractive in it. Nice concept, bad implementation.
