Following the first trailer that debuted in March, Magnolia Pictures has released the second trailer and two new posters for the upcoming comedy Frank. Based on the life of musician Frank Sidebottom (a.k.a. Chris Sievey), and the biography written by Jon Ronson, Frank explores the life of the enigmatic title character (Michael Fassbender), who never takes off his mask, and the young musician (Domhnall Gleeson) who joins the band. Maggie Gyllenhaal and Scoot McNairy co-star in director Lenny Abrahamson's comedy, arriving in theaters August 15.
Frank is a comedy about a young wannabe musician, 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. After a rocky start, Jon ingratiates himself with the band members, and they retreat to a cabin in the woods to record an album. As his influence waxes, creative tensions mount, and the band's entire raison d'être is called into question.
