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.
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!
