An international trailer for Franklyn has appeared online. The film has a Watchmen vibe to it and surprisingly was only made for $12 million. The cast includes Ryan Phillippe, Eva Green and Sam Riley and it will be released in the UK on February 20th. No word on a US release yet.
Franklyn follows four intertwining stories, three of which take place in contemporary London and the fourth takes place in Meanwhile City, a parallel fantasy environment. In Meanwhile City, atheist vigilante Jonathan Preest (Phillippe) fights against the various religious presences. Ultimately, his path crosses with three others (Eva Green, Sam Riley, Bernard Hill) from London.
