The official trailer and poster has been released for KING COBRA, the gay porn true crime drama starring James Franco, Christian Slater, Garrett Clayton (Hairspray Live!) and Keegan Allen (Pretty Little Liars).
KING COBRA, written and directed by Justin Kelly (I Am Michael), premiered to strong critical acclaim with critics praising the film as “the Boogie Nights of gay porn” at the 2016 Tribeca Film Festival and opens in theaters and digital platforms Friday, October 21st.
Sean Lockhart (Garrett Clayton), seventeen and boyishly handsome, dreams of fame and success even though he’s broke and without direction. When he meets the seemingly conservative Stephen (Christian Slater), founder of Cobra Video, he starts to perform in gay porn under the moniker “Brent Corrigan,” creating a slew of wildly successful videos during which he blossoms from a naïve young man into a confident sex symbol. When rival porn producers Joe (James Franco), a former youth pastor with a bad temper, and Harlow (Keegan Allen), a former military man, set their sights on stealing Sean from Stephen, an all-out porn turf war ensues, resulting in a shocking, gruesome murder in this bizarre, stranger than fiction true story.
