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 Wrap was first to report that Domhnall is one of the actors up for the part of Dr. Doom in the upcoming “Fantastic Four” reboot.
With Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Michael B. Jordan and Jamie Bell set to play the titular team in Josh Trank’s upcoming Fantastic Four reboot, the production is now turning its attention towards the villainy side of things and have reportedly narrowed down the list of potential Dr. Doom actors to just four actors. According to The Wrap, Sam Riley, Eddie Redmayne, Toby Kebbell and Domhnall Gleeson are currently the names that are being bounced around the production offices of The Fantastic Four.
The first trailer for “Frank” was released, be sure to watch it below:
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 is nominated for the Annual Irish Film & Television Awards 2014 for Best Actor in A Lead Role for his work in “About Time“. Congratulations to Domhnall for his nomination! Fun fact: Domhnall’s father Brendan Gleeson also got nominated for Best Actor In Leading Role for “Calvary” in which Domhnall has a small role. “Calvary” is also nominated for Best Film, Best Director, Best Script, Best Supporting Actress (Orla O’Rourke) and Best Original Score.

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.
