The first photos of Domhnall attending the European premiere of “Frank” in Dublin are added in our gallery. Domhnall attended the premiere alongside his co-star Michael Fassbender and director Lenny Abrahamson. The movie will be released on May 9th in the UK and Ireland and the theatrical release for the US is not yet announced.
Domhnall and his co-star Michael Fassbender will appear on the Late Late Show tomorrow to promote “Frank“.
Michael Fassbender, Domhnall Gleeson and Lenny Abrahamson are among the guests on this week’s The Late Late Show on RTÉ One.
The threesome talk to Ryan Tubridy about their new film, Frank. Fassbender and Abrahamson also discuss their first project together, a TV advertisement they made 15 years ago.
“I remember people saying oh he’s good and you kinda know straight away, says Abrahamson as he recalls his first meeting with Fassbender.
“I didn’t see Michael for long time after that and I just remember seeing him in things and thinking I’d really like to work with him again.”
This year’s Oscars was particularly special for Fassbender. “It was great, the whole family were there, we are very close so to share something like that with them was very special,” he says.
IndieWire released the very first production still of “Ex-Machina” featuring Domhnall and his co-star Oscar Isaac. Alicia Vikander, who co-starred alongside Domhnall in “Anna Karenina“, also co-stars. The still has been added to our gallery. No release date has been set for the movie.
Empire Magazine released the first poster for “Frank” earlier this week. The movie premiered earlier this year during the Sundance Film Festival and is expected to be released May 9, 2014 in the UK and Ireland. No release date has been set for the US.
The story, from The Men Who Stare At Goats’ Jon Ronson and Peter Straughan, finds Domhnall Gleeson as Jon, who joins a band led by the eccentric Frank (Fassbender). Loosely based on comedian and musician Chris Sievey (with influences from Daniel Johnston and Captain Beefheart), Frank tells the story of a group who want to make some truly new music, and go about it in very strange ways.
Oh, and there’s the fact that Frank himself refuses to ever take his giant head off. When the group is offered a gig at the SXSW festival in Austin, Texas, a road trip begins that starts to show the cracks in the various friendships and, at one point, the head…
Frank comes from Lenny Abrahamson, and promises to deliver plenty of offbeat comedy. With Scoot McNairy, Maggie Gyllenhaal and Tess Harper, Travis Hammer, it will be out here on May 9.
The very first trailer for “Unbroken” aired yesterday during the Olympics. Domhnall appears in the trailer for a glimpse but we are really excited for this movie! Be sure to watch the trailer below, and captures will follow as soon as possible.
Academy Award® winner Angelina Jolie directs and produces Unbroken, an epic drama that follows the incredible life of Olympian and war hero Louis “Louie” Zamperini (Jack O’Connell) who, along with two other crewmen, survived in a raft for 47 days after a near-fatal plane crash in WWII—only to be caught by the Japanese Navy and sent to a prisoner-of-war camp.
Adapted from Laura Hillenbrand’s (“Seabiscuit: An American Legend”) enormously popular book, Unbroken brings to the big screen Zamperini’s unbelievable and inspiring true story about the resilient power of the human spirit.
Starring alongside O’Connell are Domhnall Gleeson and Finn Wittrock as Phil and Mac—the airmen with whom Zamperini endured perilous weeks adrift in the open Pacific—Garrett Hedlund and John Magaro as fellow POWs who find an unexpected camaraderie during their internment, Alex Russell as Zamperini’s brother, Pete, and in his English-language feature debut, Japanese actor Miyavi as the brutal camp guard known only to the men as “The Bird.”
The film is produced by Jolie, as well as Matthew Baer (City by the Sea), Erwin Stoff (The Day the Earth Stood Still) and Clayton Townsend (This Is 40). Leading the accomplished behind-the-scenes crew is 10-time Oscar®-nominated cinematographer Roger Deakins (Skyfall).
Academy Award® winners Joel and Ethan Coen (No Country for Old Men) rewrote the screenplay from earlier drafts by William Nicholson (Les Misérables) and Richard LaGravenese (HBO’s Behind the Candelabra).
Unbroken arrives in theaters on Christmas Day, 2014.
The official website (Frank-Film.com) for “Frank” is launched and it features the official plot and a gallery with a bunch of brand new stills. We added the production stills featuring Domhnall in our gallery. The movie will premiere at Sundance later today.
Official Plot: Acclaimed Irish director Lenny Abrahamson follows up his award-winning films Adam & Paul, Garage and What Richard Did with an offbeat comedy about a young wannabe musician, Jon (Domhnall Gleeson), who finds himself out of his depth when he joins an avant-garde pop band led by the mysterious and enigmatic Frank (Michael Fassbender), a musical genius who hides himself inside a large fake head, and his terrifying bandmate Clara (Maggie Gyllenhaal).
Written by Jon Ronson (The Men Who Stare At Goats) and Peter Straughan (Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, The Men Who Stare At Goats), FRANK is based on the memoir by Jon Ronson. It is a fictional story loosely inspired by Frank Sidebottom, the persona of cult musician and comedy legend Chris Sievey, as well as other outsider musicians like Daniel Johnston and Captain Beefheart.
Domhnall attended the “Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues” Irish Premiere last month and we added the red capret photos in our gallery. Sorry for the delay on these, but we forgot to add them to our gallery.
