Cillian Murphy in Peacock

This isn't showing at Sundance, but it is a film most of you will probably be interested in. We first wrote about Peacock way back in early 2008 (it was also shot later that year). It's a new thriller starring Cillian Murphy and Ellen Page directed by first-timer Michael Lander. The movie is set in the town of Peacock, Nebraska where Murphy plays a man with a split personality, husband and wife alter egos. Page plays a young mother who "sparks a battle" between them. We're not sure when it'll ever be out, but The Playlist found a huge batch of photos on an official website we didn't even know existed. So check them out below.

The IMDb plot description says: "A train accident in rural Nebraska gradually unveils a mystery involving the town's bank clerk." Odd that they don't mention anything about his split personality, but it sounds like that's part of the plot, so we're sorry for revealing that early (although it was part of the news to begin with). This looks very subtle but quite beautiful as well and, of course, very crazy. I can't even tell that it's Cillian Murphy in these photos at all, he looks completely different! But I guess that's a good thing. We'll keep you updated on the release of this. Mandate Pictures is supposed to be putting it out, but we don't know when.

    Murphy is a very underrated actor.
  • Dark Fist
    YES.
  • lego
    he's very good. i'm sure all the right people know what he's capable of. people will get sick of him if he's in a ton of blockbusters that aren't good, like they will of sam worthington(pretty good imo) within a yr or so. so it's better this way for him. to not be over-appreciated. so i wouldnt say he's underrated at all. if that made any sense, cuz i'm not very coherent right now.

    This script finished, I believe, number 3 on the 2005 or 2006 Black List. I thought it was terrible. Then again, I'm not exactly lining up to see the latest guys-in-drag film.
  • Cineprog
    This film sounds intressting to watch about a man with split personality, I will only get limited vewing though in the IFC, It's not mainstream.
  • Shelby
    Cillian Murphy is not only gorgeous but he is really talented. He is an excellent actor. I can't wait to see this movie. He had to wear contacts to hide his beautiful eyes because they would have been a distraction to the character.
  • LINKFX
    Why didn't they just hire Billy Crudup, they obviously wanted Cillian to look just like him. That article photo you have up of Cillian is really ugly, btw.
  • JimH
    I hope its shown theatrically in Canada soon. Love Ellen Page doing dark drama.
  • Xerxex
