Watch FKA twigs and Invoice Skarsgård within the First Trailer for New Film The Crow


The Crow is the unique anti-superhero. His story is about tragic loss, about coping with the ache of all the things that comes with dropping somebody you’re keen on, one thing that every one of us have or will encounter in some unspecified time in the future in our lives. It’s in regards to the darkish shadow of grief, about what we’d do when one thing so significant is taken from us.

The unique graphic novel is deeply significant for therefore many, and the character, his journey and his want for revenge has impressed a canon of movies for the final three a long time. Our model goes again to that graphic novel by James O’Barr, who I had the honour of assembly shortly earlier than manufacturing, and explores the love story as the first drive for our movie.

What Alex Proyas did with the Crow in 1994—and Brandon Lee’s iconic embodiment of that character—will ceaselessly affect that technology and others to observe. It was a culture-defining movie that’s beloved to today and has impressed many different iterations each inside and outdoors the Crow Universe.

That movie sparked a hearth with the youth of that day, a youth who grew up on laborious, various rock, punk and metallic, that binged on MTV and zines. It held a mirror to that technology within the aesthetic of the movie, its smoky, rain-drenched streets, stylized and subverted units, its leather-clad hero and chain wielding villains. It expressed its time in a really particular, music-driven imaginative and prescient, that spoke to a younger viewers who had by no means been spoken to in that means. It grew to become a cult basic.

Our interpretation of James’ work additionally displays this younger technology, whose tastes and references have modified so dramatically from the unique movie. Hopefully it speaks to them of their language, with their type and music and hopefully will get them to find Alex Proyas’ movie and James O’Barr’s graphic novel, bringing a brand new viewers to the supply materials.

For this story is as common as an epic poem or Greek fable, it offers with the very primal, naturalistic feelings of affection, grief and rage and it additionally offers with the supernatural and physiological imaginings of heaven and hell, the useless and the undead. It explores the good optimistic drive of affection and the good unfavourable drive of rage and hate that stands in its shadow, it asks what would we do, but in addition what would we’ve got develop into by doing so. When Eric slumps to the ground, lined within the blood of the slain, we glance deep into his eyes and he asks us…why?

I’m more than happy to have labored with two younger actors whose performances are the spine of this movie. Invoice Skarsgård is so dedicated and susceptible, monstrously violent and delicately tender, he brings so many layers to the complicated emotion of a person consumed with a lot love and hate, but in addition a person who will do something for the girl he loves. He fights, numb with ache and grief, killing and maiming for the one he loves…however to what finish? FKA twigs brings the identical distinctive and wondrous expertise that she does to her total quantity of labor and her efficiency and the vacuum created by her absence undoubtedly offers cause for this Crow to be born.
