Check out the trailer for the eagerly anticipated short "The Continuing and Lamentable Saga of the Suicide Brothers," starring Rupert Friend ("The Young Victoria"), Tom Mison and Keira Knightley ("Pirates of the Caribbean"). Arran Brownlee and Corran Brownlee direct from the writing by Mison and Friend. The fantasy is a sinister fairytale depicting the lives of two brothers and their daily suicide attempts. Employing a mesmerising mix of live action and CGI, directors The Brownlee Brothers have created an enchanting world, recalling the dynamic worlds of The Brothers Grimm or Hans Christian Anderson. This release comes after the July success of "The Summer House" starring Robert Pattinson that debuted at Number One on iTunes in total movie sales for the USA, UK, Canada, Germany and Ireland. The short will be released on Shorts International (www.ShortsInternational.com) on September 21st. Check out the site, it's pretty cool. »
