Watch: Michael Fassbender Has a Giant Head in UK Trailer for 'Frank'
After playing at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival, the indie rock comedy Frank is poised to hit theaters sometime this year after Magnolia Pictures picked up the film starring Michael Fassbender. Since the film is already slated for a release in the United Kingdom on May 9th, that's where the first trailer for the film comes from, and it perfectly showcases the quirky, hilarity that makes this such an endearing comedy. But if you're hoping to see Michael Fassbender's handsome face alongside Domhnall Gleeson, Maggie Gyllenhaal and Scott McNairy, you're in for a surprise, because he's got quite a special accessory. Watch!
Here's the first UK trailer for Lenny Abrahamson's Frank, originally from The Guardian:
Frank is directed by Lenny Abrahamason (Garage, Adam & Paul, What Richard Did) and written by Jon Ronson (author of The Men Who Stare at Goats) and Peter Straughan (Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy). The film follows Jon (Domhnall Gleeson), who discovers he's bitten off more than he can chew when he joins a band of eccentric pop musicians led by the mysterious and enigmatic Frank (Michael Fassbender) and his terrifying sidekick, Clara (Maggie Gyllenhaal). Frank’s uniqueness lies in the fact that he makes music purely for the joy of creating and because he wears a giant fake head. Could that be enough to make them a hit? Magnolia Pictures picked up the film from Sundance and releases it in the US sometime in 2014. Fun?
