‘Frankie Go Boom’ Teaser Wants You to Look at Ron Perlman’s Tits

Why should you go see Frankie Go Boom this October 12? If not to support a burgeoning talent in newcomer writer/director Jordan Roberts, do it because it stars names like Charlie Hunnam (who you might know from Undeclared or Sons of Anarchy), Lizzy Caplan (who is awesome in everything she does), Whitney Cummings (who has a lot to make up for after making us sit through her sitcom) and Chris O’Dowd (who charmed the world as the love interest in Bridesmaids and most likely has big things ahead of him).

And, if all of those names aren’t enough to convince you to buy a ticket, see Frankie Go Boom in order to take in just how beautiful Ron Perlman looks when he’s dressed up as a woman.

The official plot synopsis for the film reads: “Frank Bartlett has been tortured, embarrassed and humiliated by his brother Bruce – usually on film – his entire life. Now that Bruce is finally off drugs and has turned his life around, things should be different. They are not.”

This first teaser gives us a glimpse at just one of those humiliations, and this one alone seems like enough to base an entire feature film on. Just what unusual series of events has led to Bruce (O’Dowd) bringing his brother Frankie (Hunnam) into the Den of this lovely woman named Phyllis (Perlman)? What’s going to happen to them now that they’re in there? And how did things get so tense and angry so fast? If you can’t possibly wait until October 12 to get more answers, plan for the film’s pre-theatrical VOD release on September 10. Do you think we’ll get to see the tits?
