Small Apartments, remember that one? Sure you do, we’re talking about Jonas Akerlund‘s latest movie which will finally open this February! But, until that happens, we have a completely new & (let me say) – a completely weird trailer for the whole thing, and I’m sure you’re going to love it! Check out the rest of this report for more details…
In case you’re not so familiar with this project, I will first inform you that this dark comedy premiered at the SXSW festival this March and that Jonas Akerlund directed it from a Chris Millis‘ script which centers on a guy named Franklin Franklin who kills his landlord by mistake.
Franklin Franklin is a fully realized and sympathetic protagonist in the vein of Ignatius Reilly, a simple man who yearns for “a land of pastoral serenity” devoid of the irritants of contemporary urban life. He lives in an apartment complex and dreams of Switzerland, but finds his neighbors leaking into his life. An off-beat tale, the movie is accented along the way by murder, strange fingernail collections, and the occasional blast from a treasured alphorn.
The movie has quite interesting cast on board which includes Matt Lucas, Billy Crystal, James Caan, Johnny Knoxville, Dolph Lundgren, DJ Qualls, Peter Stormare, David Warshofsky, Juno Temple, Rebel Wilson, James Marsden and Amanda Plummer.
Small Apartments is set to open in limited theaters on February 8th, 2013, and then it comes on DVD, Blu-ray & On Demand on February 19th, 2013.
So, anyone interested in this one, or what?
