Gotta’ See Trailers: ‘Franklyn’ Creates Film-Noir, Sci-Fi Collision

I won’t spend alot of time selling this film because the trailer looks very interesting. However, for those that need a little background, I will oblige you.

“Franklyn” marks the feature film directorial debut (I told you it was popular this year) of Gerald McMorrow and stars Ryan Phillippe, Eva Green and Sam Riley. The film takes place in present day London and a future city called Meanwhile City.

It’s the story of four lost souls, divided by two parallel worlds, on course for an explosive collision when a single bullet will decide all their fates.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

This film seems to attempt to aim high, and as it is a small indie film, I have to give it credit for doing so. So far, the consensus on Rotten Tomatoes (61%, 28 reviews) is, “Gerald McMorrow’s bold debut is a complex and ambitious film that highlights the director’s potential, but its multi-layered story takes time to develop and might be frustrating for some.”

The film made a stop at the Fangoria Trinity of Terrors earlier this month after seeing release in late February in the UK. Set for DVD release on Nov. 17, look for this film to garner more reviews, including my own.
