Universal debuts poster and trailer for Monkey Man
Dev Patel has already made a name for himself as an actor with some great performances throughout his career including Slumdog Millionaire, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, and The Green Knight to name a few. Now he is not only taking on the action role with his latest film Monkey Man as the lead, but also behind the camera as director also starring Sharlto Copley, Pitobash, Vipin Sharma, Sikandar Kher, Sobhita Dhulipala, Ashwini Kalsekar, Adithi Kalkunte, and Makarand Deshpande.
Monkey Man follows Kid, an anonymous young man who ekes out a meager living in an underground fight club where, night after night, wearing a gorilla mask, he is beaten bloody by more popular fighters for cash inspired by the legend of Hanuman, an icon embodying strength and courage, Monkey Man. After years of suppressed rage, Kid discovers a way to infiltrate the enclave of the city’s sinister elite. As his childhood trauma boils over, his mysteriously scarred hands unleash an explosive campaign of retribution to settle the score with the men who took everything from him.
While you will have to wait until April 5th to see Monkey Man in theaters, you can check out the poster and trailer here now from Universal.
