Umbrella Entertainment has dropped a brand new trailer for Australian adventure film In Like Flynn ahead of its WA premiere at CinefestOZ this week.

If you’re heading to CinefestOZ you can find screening details here. In Like Flynn will hit Australian cinemas on October 11.

In 1930, before Errol Flynn became one of the biggest movie stars in Hollywood, a young Errol, braving cannibals and crocodiles searched the jungles of Papua New Guinea for his Eldorado. While serving as a guide for a Hollywood producer, Errol discovers a map on a dead prospector that he believes will lead to a fortune in gold.

Back on the streets of Depression-era Sydney, Flynn rounds up a ragtag crew to help him find the gold, including Rex, a Canadian ex-bootlegger, Dook, an English gentleman handy with a pistol and Charlie, a grizzled old salt.  After stealing the Sirocco, a yacht belonging to Chinese Opium smugglers, Flynn and crew set sail.

They quickly learn just how perilous a voyage up the Australian east coast can be, running afoul of drunken cowboys, corrupt cops and local thugs before being intercepted by the Chinese smugglers, who are hell-bent on retrieving their Sirocco and the several pounds of opium stashed in the hold.  As Flynn and crew make a final dash for New Guinea, they encounter their greatest foe yet, nature itself and sailing into a treacherous reef.

In Like Flynn is a mythical and satirical coming-of-age story about four men on a journey to find hope, adventure and fortune in an age when the world was spiralling into despair.

In Like Flynn stars Thomas Cocquerel, Corey Large, William Mosley, Clive Standen and Callan Mulvey and is directed by Russell Mulcahy

One thought on “In Like Flynn gets a suitably swashbuckling trailer

  1. This was the $2 “Mystery Movie” today for a cinema-full of Seniors that I attended as a Seniors Week event. Quite a few (women) walked out, presumably because of the violence. I was also considering doing so as well. But after all, I’d paid my $2!! However, it was an interesting, and apparently mythical, period in Errol Flynn’s life and a totally badly-acted piece of cinema.
