Frank is a film that I’m wondering should ever have been made, and the clip released in January didn’t fill me with confidence, and now there’s a full trailer which doesn’t help, either.
I’m a massive fan of Frank Sidebottom and I was present at the unveiling of his fantastic statue in Timperley back in October .
The comedy is directed by Lenny Abrahamson and sees Michael Fassbender wearing an oversized Frank Sidebottom mask. He and his sidekick Clara (Maggie Gyllenhaal) become the inspiration for struggling musician Jon (Domhnall Gleeson).
Frank also stars Scoot McNairy and Tess Harper and is due for release on May 2nd. Check out the trailer below. And post a comment if you have the slighest idea what is going on:
