‘Frank & Lola’ – Trailer for New Michael Shannon Film

Check out the first official trailer for the psychosexual drama film Frank & Lola, starring Michael Shannon and Imogen Poots, directed by Matthew Ross.

The film follows Frank (Michael Shannon), a chef, and Lola (Imogen Poots), a fashion designer, and after the two fall in love, things appear to turn sour when Frank starts to act possessive.

The trailer reveals a very cool, noir-ish aesthetic for the film by writer-director Matthew Ross, who makes his debut here.

It also looks like there’s a lot the trailer isn’t showing us, such as just how far the film is going to push the boundaries on the shock-factor, if at all, but it does at least look like it will have a few twists and turns which is always good.

The film features two outstanding leads in Michael Shannon and Imogen Poots, both of whom have an excellent screen-presence.

Joining them are Justin Long, Rosanna Arquette and Michael Nyqvist.

The film releases on 9 December 2016 in the USA, however there’s no release date announced for Australia as yet.

Check out the trailer below.

The official synopsis for the film is as follows:

Set in Las Vegas and Paris, two of the world’s most glamorous cities, FRANK & LOLA is a psychosexual noir romance about love and sex, obsession and betrayal, revenge and redemption. Matthew Ross’s debut feature stars Michael Shannon as Frank, an up-and-coming chef, and Imogen Poots as Lola, an aspiring fashion designer, who find one another at a point when each is at a defining moment in life. Their affair is sudden, passionate, and seemingly everything Frank has always wanted. But, his happiness proves short-lived when a man from Lola’s past, a past that is full of secrets, turns up on the scene, forcing Frank to question whether he can trust Lola—or himself.
