IFC Films has released the first trailer for the film King Cobra and there’s so much to discuss! Based on a true story, the film promises to show audiences behind-the-scenes of the deliciously dark and twisted world of the pornography industry.
Here’s the official description, “It’s 2006, YouTube is in its infancy, and internet porn is still behind a paywall. Taking the stage name Brent Corrigan, a fresh-faced, wannabe adult video performer (Garrett Clayton) is molded into a star by Stephen (Christian Slater), a closeted gay porn mogul who runs the skin flick empire Cobra Video from his seemingly ordinary suburban home. But as Brent’s rise and demands for more money put him at odds with his boss, he also attracts the attention of a rival producer (James Franco) and his unstable lover (Keegan Allen) who will stop at nothing to squash Cobra Video and steal its number one star.”
The crime drama is directed by Justin Kelly (I am Michael) and co-stars Alicia Silverstone (Beauty Shop, Clueless) and Molly Ringwald (Jem and the Holograms, Sixteen Candles).
King Cobra opens in theaters on October 21.
