‘Frank’ Trailer: Michael Fassbender Wears a Mask, Starts a Rock Band

Frank Trailer
Element Pictures

'Frank' is a movie that has the audacity to cast a known face like Michael Fassbender in the lead role and then hide him in a giant, silly-looking fake head for the entire running time. In other words, it's our kind of weird. The film was a big hit at the Sundance Film Festival -- where we gave it a sparkling review -- and with the first 'Frank' trailer, you can see why.

‘Frank’ Review

Frank Review
Sundance

Mixing genres never works, especially surrealist comedy and character-based drama. Indie filmmakers often try it, and the seesaw of quirk and forced pathos is what makes people roll their eyes and wish for "a real movie." But once in a while it does work - and when it does, as with Lenny Abrahamson's 'Frank,' the result is something of a miracle.

'Frank,' co-written by Peter Straughan ('Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy') and Jon Ronson (the journalist/author of 'The Men Who Stare at Goats' and 'The Psychopath Test') and starring Domhnall Gleeson, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Scoot McNairy and, wearing that ridiculous papier-mache head, Michael Fassbender, is a readymade cult classic.
