Magnolia to Launch FRANK on iTunes and On Demand on Friday, September 5th

New York (September 4, 2014) – Magnolia Pictures announced today that they will be launching FRANK on iTunes and On Demand this Friday, September 5th.  Now in theaters across the country, FRANK is a charming comedy starring Michael Fassbender as an outsider rock musician who notably sports a giant paper-mache head that he never removes. 

FRANK had its coming out party here in early August, where the cast members reunited for a performance of the climactic song from the film, “I Love You All”, at its premiere at the Westway club in NYC. The next night, they reprised their performance on the Colbert Report, head and all, following a very funny interview with Colbert and Fassbender.

Directed by Lenny Abrahamson, FRANK also stars Domhnall Gleeson (Star Wars: Episode VII) as Jon, a young wannabe musician who discovers he's bitten off more than he can chew when he joins a band of eccentric pop musicians led by the mysterious and enigmatic Frank (Fassbender) and his terrifying sidekick, Clara (Maggie Gyllenhall). Frank’s uniqueness lies in the fact that he makes music purely for the joy of creating…and because he wears a giant fake head. After a rocky start, Jon ingratiates himself with the band members, and they retreat to a cabin in the woods to record an album. As his influence waxes, creative tensions mount, and the band’s entire raison d'ĂȘtre is called into question. 

“A genuine original in a summer sea of sameness. A profound examination of what constitutes creativity and genius. A story about the perpetual tension between vision and mediocrity, integrity and celebrity. It couldn’t be more classic, or of the moment.” – John Anderson, Wall Street Journal

“Certified Fresh” by Rotten Tomatoes, and currently is rated 91% on the site, FRANK has opened major markets across the country to excellent reviews:

“Captivating. It’s like an album made up of B sides and lost demo tracks that you stumble across and can’t stop replaying.” – A.O. Scott, NY Times

“You’re in for something funny, touching and vital. A hymn to the healing power of art.” – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

“Honest and affecting. Best of all, we get to witness Fassbender at full tilt.” – Anthony Lane, The New Yorker

FRANK will remain in theaters through September (complete list of bookings here), where it continues to perform strongly—grossing $23K at the Arclight in Los Angeles alone last weekend—while its expansion to iTunes and On Demand will make it available to virtually everyone in the US.
