Check out the trailer for the absurd comedy titled FRANK starring Michael Fassbender (“12 Years A Slave”) as a mysterious lead singer wearing a giant, fake head. The picture is directed by Lenny Abrahamson from a script by “The Men Who Stare At Goats” screenwriters Jon Ronson and Peter Straughan.

Domhnall Gleeson, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Scoot McNairy and Carla Azar also star.

Synopsis: “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).”

“Frank” is based on the memoir by Jon Ronson. It’s 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.

“Frank” will hit theaters in the UK and Ireland on May 2nd.
