We have added the new trailer for writer/director Mitch Glazer’s fantasy drama “Passion Play.” The film stars Megan Fox as an Angel forced to be nothing more than a winged circus sideshow. That is until Mickey Rourke steps in, to sweep her away from her hell and embark on a romance with the Angel, half his age. The guy’s still got it!
From the studio Image Entertainment the films cast also includes Bill Murray, Kelly Lynch, Jerry Sawyers, Rhys Ifans, Liezl Carstens and Rory Cochrane.
Watch the trailer below in various resolutions;
“Passion Play” is on limited release in the US from May 6th.
Nate Poole (Rourke, “The Wrestler,” “Iron Man 2″) is a washed-up jazz musician fleeing from trigger-happy gangster Happy Shannon (Murray, “Lost in Translation”). While on the run, Nate stumbles across a traveling carnival, and is instantly mesmerized by the carnival’s prized attraction, Lily “The Bird Woman” (Fox, “Transformers”). But Lily is no carny fake: her wings are real. The fugitive musician falls in love with this angelic creature, and he convinces her to leave with him, to the anger of her ruthless employer (Ifans, “Notting Hill”). The two flee across the desert, but towards… what? Their destruction? Their salvation?
Combining realism and myth, “Passion Play” is a portrait of humanity at its best and worst. Gritty and hard-boiled, it is also an adult fairytale that promises hope in the most unlikely of places. Note the date on this article may be incorrect due to importing it from our old system.
