Since our last update in the form of a teaser trailer, it looks like the next drama from Jordan Roberts has officially gone with the title 3, 2, 1… Frankie Go Boom. Starring Bridesmaids supporter Chris O’Dowd, along with Sons of Anarchy leads Charlie Hunnam and Ron Perlman, the synopsis sees a YouTube video go viral, potentially ruining the lives of those involved.
We gave it a positive review out of SXSW, calling it “a good time” while the film jumps from “from absurd scenario to absurd scenario.” This trailer makes this seem certainly so, with a bunch of different wild situations happening and it also confirms that Perlman is indeed just a supporting character, despite what early drag-filled marketing may have suggested. Check it out below via Apple, along with the poster, for the film also starring Lizzy Caplan, Chris Noth, Whitney Cummings, Nora Dunn, Sam Anderson, Jordan Black and Adam Pally.
Frank (CHARLIE HUNNAM) has been tortured, embarrassed, and humiliated — usually on film — by his brother Bruce (CHRIS O’DOWD) his entire life. Now that Bruce has finally kicked drugs and turned his life around, things should be different. But when Frank’s one-night stand with a distressed young woman (LIZZY CAPLAN) goes not quite as planned, Bruce’s camera is ready, as always, to capture it…and share it with the world.
Frankie Go Boom arrives on VOD on September 10th, before launching into theaters on October 12th.
