We are the Sprocket Holes vol. 57
Esser is a broken man, searching for his wayward son amongst the rough streets of Londons homeless. Milo is a heartbroken thirty-something desperately trying to find a way back to the purity of first love. Emilia is a beautiful art student, her suicidal art projects becoming increasingly more complex and deadly. Preest is a masked vigilante detective, searching for his nemesis on the streets of Meanwhile City; a monolithic fantasy metropolis ruthlessly governed by faith and religious fervour. Esser, Milo, Emilia, Preest- a group of people who couldnt be further apart. Their individual worlds are set for a cataclysmic collision. In an explosive finale, the path of a single bullet will decide the fate of our four lost souls….
Gerald McMorrow’s Franklyn - potentially one very compelling mash up of noir and superhero tropes along the lines of a certain other superhero film currently caught up in legal strife - is a film we have been following here for nearly a year and a half now. A couple months back a very gritty version of a sales trailer popped up online but that one, frankly, looked like ass and the producers wasted no time slapping cease and desist orders on anyone sharing it. But now Franklyn is back and looking good. With the film releasing in the UK next month - surprisingly it does not yet seem to have a US distributor - a proper trailer, in good resolution, is now available and looking tasty.
