Comic-Con has kicked off, so expect the news to be flooding in over the next week, and already we have an exclusive Comic-Con poster and trailer to enjoy. Crave is directed by Charles de Lauzirika, and appears to be an incredibly dark, menacing and violent psychological noir thriller about a man who has had enough of the world, and the bad people in it.
The trailer is terrific, and we also have a poster of the film to share with you, all at the bottom of this post. The poster will be handed out to Comic-Con attendees, who will also get a look at the trailer and seven minutes of the film.
Charles de Lauzirika both writes and directs, and the film stars Josh Lawson, Ron Perlman, Emma Lung and Edward Furlong.
Aiden (Josh Lawson) craves a better life. A life away from his gruesome job as a crime scene photographer, working alongside his detective friend Pete (Ron Perlman). A meaningful life where he can escape the hard streets of Detroit, fall in love with the perfect woman and save the world from evil. As Aiden’s dark fantasies begin to invade his reality, he meets Virginia (Emma Lung), a younger woman with her own dilemmas and desires. Estranged from her deadbeat boyfriend Ravi (Edward Furlong,) Virginia explores an uncertain relationship with Aiden, who becomes increasingly emboldened to live out his vigilante fantasies. But as Virginia is faced with the disturbing truth about Aiden’s inner life, he unwittingly starts down a dangerous path blurring fantasy and reality into actions that could have devastating consequences for himself and everyone around him.
