10-Minute Featurette and New Clip from FRANK Starring Michael Fassbender and Domhnall Gleeson

A new Frank featurette has gone online along with a new clip.  The film stars Domhnall Gleeson as an aspiring musician who joins an eccentric band led by the mysterious and enigmatic Frank, played by Michael Fassbender.  The story is loosely based on Frank Sidebottom with Fassbender sporting an odd, large mask.  The featurette is really fascinating as Gleeson, Fassbender, writer Jon Ronson, (whose time with Sidebottom was the inspiration for the story), and director Lenny Abrahamson talk about the various aspects of the film without giving away any of the plot.  I really liked the movie when I saw it at Sundance, and even though it’s strange, it’s also funny and moving, and I hope it finds an audience.

Hit the jump to check out the featurette and the clip.  The film also stars Maggie Gyllenhaal and Scoot McNairyFrank opens in the U.K. on May 9th and in the U.S. on August 22nd.
