Papillon 2017 (remake of 1973 version)

Papillon is a 2017 American biographical film directed by Michael Noer. It tells the story of French convict Henri Charrière (Charlie Hunnam), nicknamed “Papillon”, who was imprisoned in 1933 and escaped in 1941 with the help of another convict, counterfeiter Louis Dega (Rami Malek). The film’s screenplay is based on Charrière’s autobiographies Papillon and Banco, as well as the former’s 1973 film adaptation, which was written by Dalton Trumbo and Lorenzo Semple Jr. and starred Steve McQueen and Dustin Hoffman.

Papillon premiered on September 9, 2017 in the Special Presentations section at the 2017 Toronto International Film Festival.  Bleecker Street will distribute the film in the United States on August 24, 2018. Bleecker Street released a movie poster and trailer online for the film on May 22, 2018.

 

Papillon follows the epic story of Henri “Papillon” Charrière (Charlie Hunnam), a safecracker from the Parisian underworld who was unjustly convicted of murder and condemned to life in a notorious penal colony on Devil’s Island in French Guiana, South America. Determined to regain his freedom, Papillon forms an unlikely alliance with quirky convicted counterfeiter Louis Dega (Rami Malek), who in exchange for his protection, agrees to finance Papillon’s escape, ultimately resulting in a bond of lasting friendship.

   ‘EARTHSEA’ FANTASY SAGA
TO BE TURNED INTO MOVIES!

Producer Jennifer Fox will turn Ursula K. Le Guin’s fantasy classic EARTHSEA into a series of movies. Ursula sold her the rights before she died at the beginning of this year. As ‘Deadline’ reports, the saga includes five novels and eight short stories set in a fantasy archipelago of hundreds of islands, imperilled by those who use magic to gain power and upset its delicate balance. Most of its characters are people of colour and the emphasis is on understanding nature and human nature, not possessing power over them.

Ursula wrote more than 20 books in her career

It never was presented as a remake of Angel and the Badman 1974 but it’s very similar.

I loved this movie enough to make a 3 part video of the story, shown below.  I watch my DVD yearly.
