Despite starring both Charlie Hunnam and Ron Perlman, I can assure you that Frankie Goes Boom is no Sons of Anarchy spin-off. In fact, Perlman couldn’t be farther away from his character on that hit FX show. Director Jordan Roberts dressed the actor up in drag for the film that hit at SXSW and today, we’ve got the first trailer.
Although the response was mostly mixed, we gave it a positive review, calling it “a good time” while the film jumps from “from absurd scenario to absurd scenario.” In this first teaser, disguised as a clip, Bridesmaids star Chris O’Dowd introduces Hunnam to Perlman and it does look like some wacky fun, despite a poor production aesthetic. Check it out below 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.
