Below is the trailer for Franklyn, which tells the story of four “lost souls” in a futuristic London society where there is no separation between Church and State. The fantasy thriller premiered at the London Film Festival last year, and is due in theaters later this year.
Esser (Bernard Hill) is a broken man, searching for his wayward son amongst the rough streets of Londons homeless. Milo (Sam Riley) is a heartbroken thirty-something desperately trying to find a way back to the purity of first love. Emilia (Eva Green) is a beautiful art student, her suicidal art projects becoming increasingly more complex and deadly. Preest (Ryan Phillippe) 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 fervour.
Esser, Milo, Emilia, Preest – a group of people who couldn’t be further apart. Their individual worlds are set for a cataclysmic collision. In an explosive finale, the path of a single bullet will decide the fate of our four “lost souls”.
Stars include Ryan Phillippe, Eva Green, Sam Riley, Bernard Hill, Richard Coyle, Art Malik, Kika Markham and Susannah York.
Gerald McMorrow, who directed a sci-fi short titled Thespian X, handled writing and directing duties on Franklyn.
