Vaughan & Chiang's "Paper Girls" Builds a Familiar Yet Disconcerting World
Most True Blood fans would agree that Ryan Kwanten is one of the show’s biggest highlights, bringing hilarity and badassery on a weekly basis as the dim-witted Jason Stackhouse. For fans of the actor’s work, this one’s for you — the teaser trailer for Griff The Invisible, Kwanten’s upcoming superhero debut:
Maybe not the single greatest teaser of all time, and at a mere 25 seconds, it’s certainly not the longest. Nevertheless, I encourage all Jason Stackhouse loyalists to give the movie a shot. Here’s an official plot synopsis to give you a bit more info:
By day Griff (Ryan Kwanten) is an everyday office worker, in an everyday town. He lives a secluded life, bullied by co-workers (Toby Schmitz) – his protective brother his only friend. By night Griff assumes his other identity, roaming the dark streets protecting the innocent and the vulnerable from the dangers that lurk in the shadows – he is the hero, GRIFF THE INVISIBLE.
Increasingly concerned by Griff’s eccentric behavior, his brother (Patrick Brammall) attempts to draw him back into the ‘real world’. In doing so he introduces Griff to Melody (Maeve Dermody) an equally eccentric and charming girl.
Fascinated by Griff’s idiosyncrasies, which are equal only to her own, Melody begins to fall for Griff. As Griff is forced to face up to realities of a mundane world, it is up to Melody to rescue GRIFF THE INVISIBLE for the sake of herself, Griff and their love for each other.
GRIFF THE INVISIBLE is the fresh, highly-original romantic comedy from the wildly fertile imagination of debut feature film writer / director Leon Ford. Starring Ryan Kwanten in the lead role of Griff (star of smash hit US TV series True Blood) and Maeve Dermody as Melody (who earned critical acclaim for her performance in Beautiful Kate), GRIFF THE INVISIBLE is fresh from international rave reviews and accolades from the Toronto International Film Festival and will (dis)appear in cinemas nationally March, 2011.
