One of the more interesting LGBT films of the year is King Cobra, the James Franco produced take on an infamous real-life murder that took place in the gay porn industry. It’s been playing festivals since April, including upcoming screenings at October’s BFI London Film Festival. Now a trailer for the movie has arrived.
The film is about how porn actors Harlow Raymond Cuadra and Joseph Manuel Kerekes (Keegan Allen and James Franco) savagely killed porn producer and head of Cobra Video, Bryan Kocis (Christian Slater). They thought by doing so they’d be able to make it big behind-the-scenes of the porn world, and lure adult star Brent Corrigan (Garrett Clayton) to work for them in order to make a massively successful movie.
Corrigan, who now generally goes by his real name, Sean Paul Lockhart, has been adamant about the fact he didn’t want to be involved in the movie, instead writing his own book at will include his take on the events. King Cobra will be released online and in select cinemas in the US on October 21st. Take a look at the trailer below. [Read more…]
