CAIRO – 25 May 2018: Bleecker Street production company of the movie “Papillon” issued its trailer on May 22 announcing the movie will premiere in Germany on July 26.

Staring Charlie Hunnam and the American-Egyptian Rami Malek, the movie’s plot is based on the two famous best-seller musical books “Banco” and “Papillon”. The Parisian safecracker Henri Papillon (performed by Charlie Hunnam) is mistakenly accused of murder and sentenced to life on Devil's Island's infamous penal colony.

After Papillion escapes from his prison he finds a surprise criminal patron awaiting him; Louis Dega (performed by Rami Malek). Papillion and Dega make an agreement, Dega will use his skills to fund Papillon's escape, which will in return protect Dega. Such an agreement will create a strong friendship between the two criminals as well as other plans for both of them to break free.

In addition to Hunnam and Malek, the “Papillon” cast includes costars Tommy Flanagan, Roland Moller, and veteran Eve Hewson among others.

The 20th Century Fox released on May 15 the first trailer of “Bohemian Rhapsody” starring Malek in the role of Queen’s singer Freddie Mercury. The short and fast shots of Malek on the trailer were very promising. The Emmy winner is known for the lead of the psychological thriller TV series “Mr. Robot” which achieved a wide commercial success.

The new trailer was heart-warming and crafted with a lot of heavy metal and rock music showing the extraordinary spirit that characterized Queen. Focusing on the formation of the band, the trailer went through the different stages of the band until they claimed the throne of rock music. The movie also presented Mercury’s life and career being one of the best front men and the greatest vocalists.

The movie crew included Ben Hardy, Gwilym Lee, and Joseph Mazzello playing the role of the other members of the band: Roger Taylor, Brian May and John Deacon, respectively.

Bryan Singer, famous for X-Men, was the director of the movie but got fired after he disappeared suddenly from the movie’s set. Dexter Fletcher completed the direction of the movie.

“Bohemian Rhapsody” was written by Anthony McCarten who was nominated for the 2015 Oscar for Best Writing Award for “The Theory of Everything”.

The movie will be screened in American theatres on Nov. 2, 2018.
