Trailer released for gay porn drama King Cobra starring James Franco

09.27.2016

You know, I like James Franco. I know he gets pegged as a pretentious art wannabe (which might have some merit) but the dude at least tries things. From his Oscar-nominated perfomance in 127 HOURS, to his great comedic turns in comedies alongside Seth Rogen, to having the balls to direct films based on Faulkner, to hell even doing f*cking soap operas, Franco always seems to be game. And I appreciate that. 

This leads us to his new film KING COBRA, a crime drama set in the world of gay porn.  Here's the synopsis:

This ripped-from-the-headlines drama covers the early rise of gay porn headliner Sean Paul Lockhart a.k.a. Brent Corrigan, before his falling out with the producer who made him famous. When Sean decides he'd be better off a free agent, a cash-strapped pair of rival producers aim to cash in by any means possible.

And here's a trailer:

Well, I'm down. Shit looks bonkers. While it looks to have a basic story template of "innocent gets involved in sleazy activities due to porn/stripping/etc." it at least seems to also possess a dark sense of humor - almost a mash-up between PAIN AND GAIN and BOOGIE NIGHTS (and only slightly more homoerotic) by way of Nicholas Refn. The great critical response doesn't hurt either. 

KING COBRA, co-starring Christian Slater, Alicia Silverstone, and Molly Ringwald arrives in theaters October 21st, 2016.

Extra Tidbit: James Franco worked on a short film INT. LEATHER BAR. which was about him trying to recreate the 40-minutes of sexually explicit scenes from CRUISING.

So Toby left Spencer to do gayporn. This whole time I thought it was because he wanted to marry another woman. Ha

Dear JoBlo Fanboys

You know being interested in a movie, like the one above, does not make you a homosexual. So, the "this looks disgusting" comment, makes you look like a shˇtty 12 year old. You make a good point in that you didn't like Spring Breakers either, very fair. Tough I highly doubt you said "disgusting" about it due to content. Let's not be jerks on here.

It's a really interesting story though

I'll see it, I'm not uptight. I know the story is about the murder of Christian Slaters character, which really happened.

Spring Breakers was a shitty movie period. So to compare that to a movie yet released is beyond moronic. Have an opinion that's fine but don't sound like a retard while having one.

You come across as extremely homophobic... Why can't you watch a movie just because it is about a gay porn star? Movies are a form of art, its not like this is brainwashing you into liking guys, it is just telling the story of this kids rise in the gay porn industry and how insane some of the people he met along the way were. It's a true story of someone being murdered.

And in my opinion, I don't have any interest in seeing it, and it looks disgusting to me.

Are we not allowed to have our own opinions now? Go SJW somewhere else, or did I already trigger you? Do you need a safe space now since someone's opinion offends you?

^^Lol! Says the guy who's still whining about that 8/10 review of Ghostbusters, and seemingly made this current ID just to bash everybody who liked that movie.
