The film follows Jon, who discovers he’s bitten off more than he can chew when he joins a band of eccentric pop musicians led by the mysterious and enigmatic Frank and his terrifying sidekick, Clara. Frank’s uniqueness lies in the fact that he makes music purely for the joy of creating and because he wears a giant fake head. Could that be enough to make them a hit?
I’m not sure what to think of Frank, the upcoming film which stars Michael Fassbender as a rock star with a big plastic head. The trailer almost plays like Being John Malkovich meets The Boat That Rocked…or something. It’s really weird, and I definitely want to see it, but much like a lot of the cast in this behind-the-scenes featurette, I have no idea what to expect going into it. Could this be the surprise comedy hit of 2014?
Frank comes out in limited release on August 22, 2014.
