Here’s the trailer for the upcoming film, Papillon! As the trailer itself states, this is based on the amazing true story of Henri Charrière and his escape from the Devil’s Island penal colony.
Of course, this isn’t the first film to be made about Charrière, his escape, and his friendship with Louis Dega. 1973’s Papillon starred Steve McQueen as Charrière and Dustin Hoffman as Dega. I haven’t seen this particular film but many consider it to be a classic.
In this remake, Charrière is played by Charlie Hunnam while Rami Malek takes over the role of Dega. Will it be good or will it be forgettable? The trailer, to be honest, is a bit generic. We’ll find out for sure when the film is released on August 24th!
