WATCH: Colin Farrell as you’ve never seen him in his latest screen role!

The actor had some strict eating habits to prepare for his role...

Colin Farrell stars in the trailer for the bizarre sci-fi film The Lobster – and we’re not sure what to make of this one! The film is set in the near future, where people have 45 days to find a mate or risk being turned into an animal… it’s obviously pre-Tinder!

The film is set in a near future at a place called The Hotel. If they don’t find a mate they’re turned into a beast of their choosing and released into the woods. The Hollywood heartthrob picks a lobster, as they mate for life.

It's Colin as we've never seen him before- we still think he's a babe!

Colin’s character runs away, where he meets an outsider played by Rachel Weisz. According to the early reviews from Cannes, the film – which was shot in Kerry last year – is meant to be incredible.

The Lobster also stars Léa Seydoux, John C Reilly, Ben Whishaw, and Olivia Colman and will hit cinemas on October 16, 2015. Check out a clip from the film below – be warned, it’s pretty strange!


The Dublin native (38) had to make a dramatic transformation for his role in the film and gained 40lbs in the space of two months- but we still think he’s a hunk!

The former Ballykissangel star revealed the extreme measures he went to in order to pile on the pounds.

“I would put [ice cream] in the microwave to melt and drink it,” he said.”Two cheeseburgers, fries and Coca-Colas, and two slices of chocolate cake at 10am is not fun – and I love cheese­burgers.”

It took up to four pints of Haagen Dazs a day to help him pile on the pounds.

“My body was in total shock,” he added. It sounds like a pretty yummy diet to us!
