New Franklyn Posters Online
Oooh, Italian-y!

15 January 2009  |  Written by Helen O'Hara  |  Source: Badtaste.it

Upcoming British sci-fi Franklyn, set in a dark future England where religious fanaticism has taken over, is due out here next month but is still largely under wraps, so it's good to see these new Italian posters for the film online, even if we have only the haziest idea what the taglines mean.

The film stars Ryan Phillippe, Eva Green, Sam Riley and Bernard Hill, as four loosely connected characters in this future imperfect. Phillippe's a masked vigilante, Green a rather macabre art student, Riley a broken loner and Hill a broken man searching for his son.

If our Italian doesn't fail us, and it might cause we don't speak it, the first poster says "Tonight I killed a man" and the third and fourth say, "Two worlds are colliding". Don't say we never teach you anything.

Franklyn is out on February 20 in the UK.

I thought it had been forgotten
Saw something about this on TV months and months ago and had totally forgotten about it. The posters look very cool but I'm never sure about Ryan Phillipe...can't decide whether I like him as an actor or not...certainly not as a lead. More

RE: the ageless stranger
L: shanewire Usually the UK and Irish release dates are the same. I'd be surprised if this didn't make it over to us sp; I hope so, I just can't find it on any "coming soon" lists here. More

Just watched the Franklyn, visuals are amazing, can't be saying too much mind... all very hush hush. Lets just say the twist is evident a mile off! Eva Green just goes from strength to strength. More

I'm definitely intrigued by this film although I can't seem to get excited about it. More
